Easy Listening – Practical and Social English #6

If you would like to improve your English speaking and listening, watch this video from New English File Elementary. It features speakers from England and The United States.  The conversations are written under the videos. Listen carefully and repeat what you hear:

Conversation 1: In the street – Asking for directions

Allie: Excuse me. Where’s King Street please?
Girl: Sorry. I don’t know.

Allie: Excuse me. Is King Street near here?
Man: King Street? It’s near here but I don’t know exactly where. Sorry.
Allie: Thank you.

Allie: Excuse me. Can you tell me the way to King Street?
Girl #2: Yes. Go straight on, go past the church and then turn left at the traffic lights and then I think it’s the second on the right.
Allie: Sorry. Could you say that again please?
Girl #2: Yes. Go straight on, go past the church and then turn left at the traffic lights and then I think it’s the second on the right.
Allie: Thank you.

Conversation 2: Social English

Allie: OK. It’s this street. No, it isn’t. I’m sure she said the first on the right.
Mark: No, she said the second on the right. Relax Allie.
A: Look, let’s ask that man there.
M: I don’t think he knows. He’s a tourist.
A: Just ask him please.
M: OK, OK. Excuse me! We’re lost. Do you know where King Street is?
A: Sorry, I don’t live here. I’m a tourist.
M: You see. I was right.
A: OK. Let’s try the second on the right.
M: Here it is, King Street. I knew she said the second on the right.
A: There’s the restaurant, Donatella’s. Can you see anywhere to park?
M: That white car’s going over there! Do you think you can park in that space?
A: Are you saying I can’t park?
M: Allie, I’m only joking.
A: OK, OK. I’m sorry.
