  4. 4. Uhmmmmm the manager thought and said: “I would like your help in solving a problem. I would like to give some fruit to the employees at lunch today. In the market, which is on the corner they sell fruit. Please, can you ask if they have oranges?”
  5. 5. John tried his best to do this task job and 5 minutes later he returned… O.K John, Sir, they what did you have ask? oranges to sell !! And how much were Ahhhh….I they? didn’t ask O.K, but did you see if they have I didn’t ask it enough oranges Sir for everyone? Is there another fruit I don’t know we can use Sir, but I instead of think… oranges?
