Todd:

OK. Steven, you're looking at a picture. Please describe what you see!

Steven:

Uh, I can see a red double decker bus. It's the kind of bus you'll see very often in London. In fact I know this bus is from London because I can see the names: Chelsea, Sloan Square, Victoria, Herring Cross. These are all areas in London. Um, so obviously the bus is in London.

Todd:

OK. Have you ever been on a double decker bus?

Steven:

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Many times. Many times. When I was younger, you used to get double-decker all over England but now you only tend to see them in the big cities.

Todd:

Oh, really. Mm! How much is the fare?

Steven:

Well, it depends on the journey. It's… I guess it's not too expensive, but the minimum price you would pay is, for a short journey, is about a pound.

Todd:

Mm, yeah, who can you see on the bus? Can you pick out anyone on the bus who looks interesting?

Steven:

Hmm, yeah, well this girl here at the back, that's leaning on the door, um, she looks really bored, actually. Maybe she is going to work or something and she doesn't want to go!

Todd:

Is that how you feel on the bus?

Steven:

Uh, well, no, not really, because I haven't worked in England for a long time, so I haven't taken a bus for a long time.

Todd:

So, so you're British, do you missing them?

Steven:

Um, yes, sometimes. Sometimes.

Todd:

OK. Great. Thanks a lot.

Steven:

No problem.
