Talking about weekend plans

It’s Friday and Rachel and James are discussing their plans for the weekend in the café…

Rachel: So, what are your plans for the weekend, James? Are you doing anything exciting?

James: I’m going to my brother’s house in London tomorrow. We’re going to watch a football game at Wembley stadium tomorrow afternoon. I can’t wait! What are your plans for the weekend, Rachel?

Rachel: Tomorrow afternoon, I’m going shopping with my sister. We’re going out for dinner tomorrow evening too. On Sunday, I’m going to relax at home with my family.

James: That sounds great. What restaurant are you going to tomorrow evening?

Rachel: We’re going to the new restaurant in town called ‘The Harbour’. The food is amazing there!

James: Really? What is your favourite dish on the menu?

Rachel: The chilli pasta is delicious. The steak is really tasty too.

James: They both sound really good! I’d love to go there soon!
