Listening Exercise

Listen to the recording and read along with the conversation. Review the key vocabulary and the sample sentences.

Steve: Hey, Ranae. Do you happen to know where the movie theater is downtown? The one near the hospital.

Ranae: Yeah. Why do you want to know?

Steve: Well, on Monday, I asked Jennifer out on a date for this coming Saturday night.

Ranae: Wow. You’ve really been seeing a lot of her lately. Sounds great. Okay, write down these directions so you don’t get lost.

Steve: Okay, go ahead.

Ranae: First, drive down 1st street going west, cross the river, and keep going straight until Pine Street.

Steve: Until Pine Street, right?

Ranae: Right. Then turn left, and the movie theater is the second building on the right. It’s next to the church.

Steve: Second building on the right. Got it. Now, can you recommend any nice restaurants?

Ranae: Yeah. The Pink Flamingo serves excellent Spanish food.

Steve: Well where’s that?

Ranae: Well, starting from the movie theater, go south on Pine Street, cross 2nd Street, and drive to 3rd Street. You’ll see a parking lot on the left side of the street. Okay so far?

Steve: A parking lot on the left. Okay. Then what?

Ranae: Okay, then turn left on 3rd Street and drive east. The Pink Flamingo is the building just before the river on the left side. I think it’s open weekdays from 10:30 in the morning to 11:30 at night, but it stays open until midnight on weekends.

Steve: Okay, I think I’ve driven by there before. Oh, last thing. Where can I buy some flowers? We’re going out to celebrate Jennifer’s birthday.

Ranae: Well the only florist I know is in front of the stadium on 2nd Street. Try that one.

Steve: Great. Thanks a lot.
