In this lesson, we will see what people may say when planning weekend trips.
Polly: Hey Mom. I was wondering if we could plan a getaway trip this weekend?
Lisa: Well, that’s a great idea, Polly. It’s been a while since we did something together, as a family.
Polly: Where do you think we should go?
Lisa: I think camping would be a good idea. Your father is quite fond of camping and adventure trips.
Polly: I was thinking the same. I know this wonderful camping site organized by NTC. Let’s call them and ask for availability and prices.
Lisa: That’d be great. Call them up and find out all the details. I’ll talk to your father in the evening.
Carl: Hey, tomorrow is our last exam. Doesn't it call for a celebration?
Polly: Yeah. You are absolutely right, Carl. I think we should plan a weekend trip.
Carl: That’s a good idea Polly. Where do you think we should go?
Polly: I went camping with my family a couple of months back. It was quite adventurous and exciting. I think we should go there.
Carl: Camping is not a bad idea. Can you call the campsite and ask about availability?
Polly: Yeah, I will. I have the number. I’ll call them and ask.
Carl: That'd be great. Let me know. I’ll have to tell my parents as well.
Rustin: Do you know we have a three-day weekend next week?
Lisa: Who told you that?
Rustin: I had a word with HR and they told me that the office will be closed for three days next weekend.
Lisa: Oh, really? Let’s plan a weekend trip together, then. I think our team deserves a good weekend getaway.
Rustin: I was thinking the same. Where do you think we should go?
Lisa: I think San Antonio would be perfect. It’s a beautiful place to visit in the fall.
Rustin: I was thinking about some national park.
Lisa: Let’s discuss these options with the team members and let them decide where they would like to go.
Rustin: Yeah. That’s a great idea.
Polly: Hey what’s up Rustin?
Rustin: I’m good. You look so happy. What’s the matter?
Polly: Well, I’m going on a weekend trip with my family after such a long time.
Rustin: That’s good news. Where are you going?
Polly: We are going camping at Locust Lake State Park.
Rustin: Oh! That’s a really good place for camping. I went there with my family as well, a couple of years ago.
Polly: Yeah. You told me once.
Rustin: Hope you have a great trip. Call me when you get back.
