Stephanie: Yes, it is. I think it’s the biggest in this neighborhood.

Brian: Here we are. Thanks for the help.

Stephanie: My pleasure.

Brian: Let me ask you one more thing. Where do I find cheese?

Stephanie: The cheese is in the dairy section, in aisle 14.

Brian: No, it’s okay. I’ll be here a minute choosing the wine.

Stephanie: No problem. If you need anything else, any store employee can help you.

Brian: Great!

Stephanie: By the way, our domestic wines are on sale. There are some very good ones.

Brian: Good. You’re very helpful. Thank you.

At the Office.

Denise: Good morning, Claire. Could you help me with the new copy machine?

Claire: Sure, no problem. What do you need?

Denise: There are so many places to put the paper; I never know where it goes…

Claire: How many pages do you need to copy?

Denise: I need three pages. It’s the weekly financial report.

Claire: Ok. Put the three pages here…right. Now select the number of copies you need.

Denise: Well, that was easy enough. Thanks!

On the Street.

Barbara: Do you remember what an adjective is, Kenny?

Kenny: Sure! It’s a…it’s a…it’s like a description, isn’t it?
