Plans for the Summer

Sylvia asks Alison about her plans for the summer and she is a little bit surprised…

Sylvia: Hi Alison! I can’t believe we only have three more weeks of school left before the summer holidays… Do you have any plans for the summer?

Alison: I’m just planning on sleeping all day, every day!

Sylvia: Oh, come on Alison, you’re joking?

Alison: Yeah, I’m joking! It’ll be nice to have a lie-in everyday though.  Actually, I’m going to go to Bidderosa in Sardinia with my family for 4 weeks.

Sylvia: Really? I’ve never heard of it. What’s it like there?

Alison: Well, it’s not very popular, so it won’t be crowded. There’s an amazing nature reserve and a beach there too.

Sylvia: It’s very hot in Sardinia in the summer, isn’t it?

Alison: Well, according to one of my mum’s friends, it’s very cool there in July. 

Sylvia: Well, that sounds great! I hope you have a lovely time with your family.

Alison: Thanks Sylvia!
