Unit thirty two
London is wonderful for theatres, but the popular shows especially the big musicals are usually fully booked months in advance. Sometimes one may be lucky to get rickets on the day from the thea-tie or booking agency. It is usually much easier to buy tickets for matinees (afternoon performances).
One day one of the participants bought a weekly entertainment guide Time Out for information about theatres, cinemas, concerts and other entertainments. One of the ads attracted his attention. It said:
PRINCE EDWARD. Tel. 01- 4376877
Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's
THE WORLD'S GREATEST MUSICAL
Dir. by Hal Prince Evgs 8.0
Low price Mats. Thurs. and Sat. 3.0
Evg. perfs. end 10.15
Grp sales 01—3796061
He and his friend decided to go to the box office and try their luck.
Participant: Excuse me, what's on tonight?
Ticket officer: It's Evita, sir.
Participant: Have you got any tickets by any chance?
Ticket officer: You are lucky. There are still a few, at 20 and 15 pounds.
Participant: And where are the 20 pounds seats?
Ticket officer: In the upper circle. You may see it in the map on the wall, over there.
Participant: ... Then may we have two seats in the upper circle.
Ticket officer: Yes, certainly. Forty pounds, please.
Participant: Here you are.
Ticket officer: Thank you... Here are the tickets. Row K, seats 24 and 25
Participant: Excuse me, and when does the performance finish?
Ticket officer: It starts at 3.00 and finishes at 5.15.

Unit thirty three
The British pub
One day David Hill invited a few participants to a pub. The participants were happy to satisfy their curiosity and they accepted the invitation willingly. In the evening they went to the nearest pub.
Pubs are "typically English". Most pubs are friendly and relaxed places where visitors can have some beer and, usually, a simple meal. These days one can also get wine in most pubs. Many also serve coffee, but not tea. You go to the bar to order and pay for your drink. A typical lunch in a pub is a "ploughmans" — bread, cheese and pickle, and sometimes a little salad.
Pubs are not open all day. The owners themselves can decide when to open. Most open for 3 or 4 hours at lunchtime and again from about 6 p. m. to about 11 p. m. In busy areas, pubs may stay open from 11 a. m. to 11 p. m.
Here is the talk between David and Sergei:
Sergei: This looks nice.
David: I like it too. 1 sometimes come here with my friends.... Let me buy you a few drinks. What would you like to have?
Sergei: Thank you. Just a minute... Well, two halves of bitter and one half of lager, if you please.
David (to Two halves of bitter and two halves of lager, please.
Barman): And four packs of crisp.
Barman: Seven pounds ninety.
David: Here you are... Thank you... Let's go to that table over there..... Cheers!
Sergei: Cheers! Ah, very good beer, indeed.
David: I'm not a beer addict but I like it.... Would you like the game of darts? It's very popular in our pubs.
Sergei: Yes, but I don't know how to play. Can you show me?
David: Certainly, come on.... You take three darts...
