An English dialogue between friends at breakfast.
Friends are having breakfast and discussing some things.
Stephan: Good morning!
Lucia: Morning, Stephan!
Stephan: Where is everybody?
Lucia: Ah, here’s Akiro. Morning! The Youngs are at work.
Akiro: Yes, they get up at six-thirty, and Mr Young leaves at quarter past seven.
Lucia: He works for a bank in the City and he often gets back late.
Akiro: He lives in his office!
Stephan: And Mrs Young?
Lucia: She goes ten minutes later. She teaches at a primary school.
Akiro: Then we have our breakfast.
Lucia: And we leave at twenty past eight.
Akiro: I always have lunch in town at midday and Lucia has a snack at the school in the afternoon.
Lucia: And we usually come back for our supper in the evening.
Akiro: Yes, we have dinner with the family.
Stephan: The family?

Akiro: Lucia sometimes does the cooking.
Lucia: It’s good, because we speak English with English people.
Stephan: And with an English dog!
Akiro: Yes, its English is very good!
Lucia: Cornflakes or muesli, Stephan?
