ESL 520 - Getting Directions and Parking Instructions
 

 

Receptionist:  So the meeting is set for 2:00 on Thursday.  Do you know how to get to our offices?

Asha:  No, I don’t.  Could you give me directions?

Receptionist:  Certainly.  We’re located on Main Street.  The cross street is Udall.  If you’re taking the freeway, the best exit to take is Udall East.  Once you’re on Udall, head east for about two miles and when you reach the bend, veer right.  If you veer left, you’ll run into a dead end.  After you veer right, you’ll be on Monroe Avenue and it’s a one-way street.  Our building is on the right-hand side, past the light.  If you pass Elm Street, you’ve gone too far.

Asha:  Okay, I think I’ve got all that.  Is there parking available? 

Receptionist:  Unfortunately, there’s only street parking.  There is valet parking for the building next door, but they charge $12 and we don’t validate.  There are meters on the street and on the side streets, but you may need to circle the block a few times to find an available meter.

Asha:  All right, and thanks for the information.  I guess I need to leave early to have plenty of time to find the building and to find parking.

Receptionist:  I tell everybody to count on getting lost and having to hunt for parking. 

Asha:  Thanks for the heads up!

519 - Descibing Family Relations です

 

 

 

Eri:  What’s that?

James:  It’s an invitation to a family reunion.  Once every five years or so, someone in the family organizes one.

Eri:  Are you going?

James:  I’m not sure.  It’s always a little awkward seeing extended family.  Did you know that there used to be a big feud between my father and his brother?

 

Eri:  No, what happened?

 

James:  I’m not sure, but it was something that happened before they got married.  My father held a grudge for years.  Then, about eight years ago, they made up.  There’s still no love lost between their wives, but at least there are no hard feelings between the two of them any longer.

 

Eri:  So you’ll go to the reunion?

 

James:  I’m not sure.  My mother’s side of the family has always looked down on my father’s.  She comes from old money and they didn’t approve of her marrying my father.  It was really hard on my mother.  She really looked up to her mother and they were really close before my father came along.

 

Eri:  But that’s ancient history, isn’t it?  Considering how things turned out, your grandmother can’t hold it against your mother for marrying your father.

 

James:  You’ve never met my grandmother.  One thing everyone knows about her is this:  She doesn’t know the words to forgive and forget.
