Lesson 5: “At the Stadium”

Dialogue 5 :


Brian: The opponent plays well! Their fast offender is very dangerous. Heaims very precisely and shoots very hard.

Linda: Our team is not bad either. Our goalkeeper keeps the ball very safe.

Brian: Exactly, you know this game very well! Would you like to have adelicious hot dog?

Linda: Yes, together with a cold beer. That would be fantastic.

Brian: I will bring you a beer.

Linda: Hurry up, because our good sweeper hurt himself.

Brian: Here is your beer. It is actually warm.

Linda: And the hot dog is cold. Hahaha. It looks good though, and….hmmmm…. tastes very good too! A wonderful goal has been scored.Unfortunately for the opposing team.

Brian: Oh, I don’t know if we have a chance. The opponent plays very hardand fast. It is getting very difficult.

Linda: It does not seem to be easy, because our best defender seriously hurt himself.

Brian: But our team must win, otherwise they cannot play in the World Cup.We cannot give the opponent so many chances.

Linda: The coach should bring in a new player. Our midfield players cannotrun anymore.

Brian: You might be quite right. He is still allowed to exchange anotherplayer in. I

would bring in a younger player!

Linda: May I have another sip of beer?

Brian: Of course… Oh, no! That can’t be! 0:2! I think we should go!

Linda: Yes… me too. I should not stay out so late tonight. I have to watchout for my little sister!

Brian: But we can still go out on another date again, right?! Let us go to thecinema tomorrow!

Linda: That would be nice! I do not want to miss “Love me, if you can“! Bye!
