Sam : I went to Mary's home yesterday. She has a beautiful garden.

Laura : I am sure they look pretty.
Sam : Oh yes they do. Mary has a very impressive garden.
Laura : Do you think you can make a garden as pretty as that?
Sam : I don't know Laura, I am not a good gardener.
Sam : Sue has a new dog.
Laura : Oh, that is nice! What kind of dog is it?
Sam : It's black and tan in color. It's very small now because it's a puppy.
Laura : Do you think it will be a large dog when it grows up?
Sam : Yes. Sue told me it's an Alsatian. That is a large breed.
Laura : Is it ferocious?
Sam : No, he's just a puppy. He's very playful.
Laura : Oh I am glad. I am afraid of ferocious dogs.

Sam : Two years? Is she cute?
Laura : She's very cute. She's adorable!

Laura : Have you been to the Taj Mahal? I was reading about it today.

Sam : Well, it's white in color and rather big.
Laura : I hear it looks amazing on a full moon night.
Sam : Oh yes! I agree. It really shines in the white moonlight.
Laura : How was it from the inside?
Sam : It was pretty dark, because not much artificial light is allowed inside.
Laura : Hmm... I'd really love to see it myself someday.
