Unit 19: Buying Train Tickets


    


Script
------

A: Uh, what does it say I should do next?

B: Excuse me. Do you need some help?

A: Well . . . yeah . . . I guess so. I'm trying to get to the university, but I'm afraid I can't make heads or tails of this ticket machine.

B: Just push the green button that says "University" and put in two dollars and seventy-five cents.

A: Okay. Like this?

B: Yes, that's right. The train you want will leave from platform 2 at 9:15, which is half an hour from now.

A: Thank you. Oh, and could you tell me how often the trains come?

B: They come every fifty minutes in the evening.

A: Okay. And do you know what station I should get off at?

B: You want University Avenue; that's five stops from here.

A: Okay, I think I've got it. Thanks again.

B: Sure. Good luck.
