At the Mall
Todd: So Katie, I want to go to the mall.
Todd: Have you been to the new mall?
Katie: Yeah, I actually went there just yesterday.
Todd: Okay. So I want to buy some computer stuff. Is there a computer store?
Katie: There are two computer stores.
Todd: Really? Ooh, that's good.
Katie: There's a computer store on the first floor, and then very close to that there's also a Mac store.
Todd: Ooh, that's perfect. I want to buy a new Mac.
Katie: Oh, me too.
Todd: They're so expensive, though.
Katie: Mm-hmm (affirmative).
Todd: Okay, what about books? I really like books. Is there a bookstore with English books?
Katie: There's a huge bookstore on the fourth floor.
Todd: Ooh, that's good.
Katie: It's really big. And there are lots of English books you can read there.
Todd: Oh, great. Nice. And how about the food there?
Katie: The food's okay. There's a big food court on the third floor, and you can get a variety of food. You can get a Subway.
Todd: Oh, that's good. I love sandwiches. Is the food good there, though?
Katie: They don't have any sandwiches that I like, basically.
Todd: Oh, really. Okay. So what else is there at the mall?
Katie: Oh, there's so much at the mall. There's a café on the ground floor.
Todd: Oh, nice.
Katie: If you like drinking coffee.
Todd: I do. I like to go and study and just relax.
Katie: That's the perfect place for you, then.
Todd: I like to people watch. Is it a good people-watching place?
Katie: Oh, it's a great people-watching place.
Todd: Oh, cool.
Katie: The windows are really big, and you can see out onto the street.
Todd: Oh, cool. What else is there? Is there a movie theater?
Katie: Mm-hmm (affirmative). There's a movie theater on the fourth floor.
Todd: Oh, great. Now, do they have English movies?
Katie: They have English and Japanese movies.
Todd: Oh, that's good. I should watch some Japanese movies too.
Katie: They're interesting.
Todd: And how about food? I hear there's a new supermarket, a big supermarket there.
Katie: It's pretty big. And you can get lots of food there. It's on the first floor.
Todd: Okay. Is there anything else I should see?
Katie: What about the roof garden?
Todd: Oh, what is the roof garden?
Katie: It's on the fifth floor, and it's, well it's on the roof, and you can see a beautiful view of the city. And there's also places for you to sit and just enjoy the view.
Todd: Oh, nice. A roof garden, I like that.
Katie: It's really nice.
Todd: Now, do you buy clothes at the mall? Do they have nice clothing shops?
Katie: Yeah, they have nice clothing shops. Some of them are a little bit expensive.
Todd: Ah, yeah.
Katie: And I like buying cheap clothes.
Todd: Okay. When's a good time to go?
Katie: I think the best time to go is probably weekdays.
Todd: Okay. Why?
Katie: If you go on the weekend, there are so many children there.
Katie: Ugh. It's hard to walk around.
Todd: Yeah, and we're teachers, we teach kids all day.
Katie: Mm-hmm (affirmative).
Todd: Okay. I don't want to go then.
Katie: No, me neither.
Todd: Well, I want to go there next week, maybe Thursday night.
Todd: Do you want to join me?
Katie: Yeah, that sounds good. Maybe we can watch a movie.
Todd: Cool. I'll buy you dinner.
Katie: Sounds great.
