Unit 18: Buildings and Landmarks



A: Excuse me, ma'am?

B: Yes, sir. How can I help you?

A: I'm a guest here; I'm in Room 514. I have some free time this afternoon, so I want to go see a park, a landmark, something. What would you suggest?

B: Uh . . . Wrigley Field on a sunny day like today is nice.

A: Wrigley Field . . . ? Don't the Cubs play baseball there?

B: That's right. In fact, they have a game there at 4:00. You want to see a building with history? I think Wrigley Field is THE Chicago landmark to see.

A: Great, how do I get there?

B: Go north one block and take the El.

A: The "El"?

B: Oh, that's short for "elevated train." Nothing gets you in or out of Wrigley faster.

A: Well, the game starts in one hour, so I'd better go now. Thanks for your help!

B: No problem; have a good time!
