Beginner English | Level A1 Lesson 20B | Adverbs of Frequency

Do you eat takeaway?

Listen to Daniel talk with Hana about eating out and discuss why he eats out often.

Daniel: So do you ever buy take-away?

Hana: No, I never. Normally when I go out to eat, I like to sit and enjoy my food. How about you?

Daniel: Well, that's really nice. Of course, I do like to sit and enjoy my food, but I have to admit that occasionally I have to buy take-away, especially when I'm coming late from work, and I'm driving. I'm so hungry that, most of the time, I don't really make it home, so I have to buy something on my way, and that's a shame, so that's the way it is.

And do you usually have people over for dinner?

Hana: Yes, I sometimes do. I really like cooking so occasionally I invite my friends over and cook for them or we all cook together. How about you?

Daniel: Not really. I do love cooking, but the problem is my place is really small, so even though I want to invite my friends. I never do it, because my place would only fit one or two people. So unfortunately, I never have my friends over for dinner.
