V. Time to Read

1. Read in pairs and say:

• Why Ann prefers to go out for a picnic;

• What worries Steve’s mum;

• Why Steve decided to join his friends.


Ann: Hi, Steve. How do you like the weather today?

Steve: A lot. It’s warm and sunny outside. What’s on your mind?

Ann: I wonder if you have any plans for the weekend? Our friends are going out for a picnic. We decided to make a fire and bake potatoes, to listen to the music and sing along to the guitar. We may also play football or volleyball. In a word, it will be «a healthy way of life» picnic. What about joining us?

Steve: I am not sure. The idea of picnicking doesn’t excite me too much. I don’t feel like taking a class outing to the woods, either. And besides, I listed 10 new computer games.

Ann: But you can’t spend all your weekend in front of the computer. It’s no good for your health!

Steve: My mum says the same. She advises me to spend more time out in the open. Are you going to do anything fun out in the open?

Ann: Exactly. My elder brother has just come from the USA and he promises to teach us some popular American sport games like baseball or softball.

Steve: Wow! Sounds like a good idea. I like sports and I’m interested in sport of other countries.

Ann: Then you’ll kill two birds with one stone, as the proverb goes: you’ll have a nice rest and learn new sport games.

Steve: Thank you for the invitation, Ann. It’ll be an unforgettable weekend, I bet.
