Let’s go out tonight
A role-play for an evening out.
• You and your friend have nothing to do. You decide it would be fun
to go out for museum, and then to a restaurant.
• Look at the different activities and choose which place you would
like to visit. Then look at the map and choose a restaurant.
• Ask each other:
Where is it?
What is showing there?
What does it feature?
What is the admission fee?
How do you get from the show to the restaurant?
• Try to make the conversation as long as you can, and add your own
words to make it more real.

B: Sure. What are you thinking / do you have in mind / do you want to do ?
A: Why don’t we check / We could check out / How about checking out the
Museum of Modern Art?
B: What are they showing?
A: They are having a show on Impressionist Painters. It’s featuring Van Gogh.

A: Let’s see. The admission fee is 12 dollars. Right now we are on the corner of
Maple and 7th, so we’ll go down Maple till we come to Broadway. Then we
turn right on Broadway. It’ll be in the middle of the block on your left.

A: Didn’t I just tell you I’m allergic to seafood? Are you an idiot?
B: OK – Jeez! How about Ike’s Steakhouse?
