A. Two friends are discussing different ways of spending their holidays. They both want to travel, but one of them is an enthusiast ready for anything and the other is a cautious and a sceptical person. (Use the following: there is nothing like travel by air/by sea, etc., it is more convenient to ...; there is none of the ...; speed, comfort and pleasure combined; there is no travel so fine as by...; the rise and fall of the waves; coming in to the harbour, that's all right for those that like it; when the sea is rough; hitch-hiking; it's risky, isn't it! I prefer to be on the safe side; I'd rather stay at home.)

B. A person who has just returned from a foreign cruise is answering the questions of an eager listener. (Use the following: a most exciting experience; I really envy you; do tell me all about it, where did you sail from? go sightseeing; what was the place that impressed you most! I didn't think much of...; the journey was tiring; but you did enjoy it, didn't you!)

C. An old lady is talking to a porter at the railway platform. She keeps forgetting the name of the place she is going to and does not quite know how many pieces of luggage she has. (Use the following: will you see to my luggage? where for, madam? it just slipped my memory, it's a sort of resort place; would you like me to have these trunks put in the luggage-van? where on earth is that suitcase? it will never go on the luggage-rack; I must have a seat facing the engine; dear me, I'm sure to miss the train; is it a through train? I hate to change; when are we due to arrive?)
