A It’s my birthday on Saturday. I’d like to go out for the day with you and a group of our friends. What do you think we should do?
B Well, I’m quite keen on body boarding. I’ve never done it before and I’d really like to try it.
A Sorry, but I don’t think that’s a very good idea. Some of my friends don’t have body boards. What about abseiling? I quite fancy trying that.
B I think parkour is a better option than abseiling because you don’t need any equipment.
A Oh, no. I really don’t want to do parkour. It doesn’t appeal to me at all.
B Well, how about climbing or karting?
A I don’t think karting would be as much fun as climbing. And there’s a new indoor climbing centre near the school. It would be good to try it.
B Yes, I agree.
A Can we agree on climbing, then?
1 quite keen
2 think, good idea
3 quite fancy
4 better option
6 can we agree
I think kayaking sounds fun. Because I have been able to swim very well since I was a child. I like to spend time on lakes, rivers, seas.
I also really like surfing. I'm really very interested in this. I love to go to the sea and enjoy spending time there.
