Describing the Perfect Holiday

Jane and Gregg are in the same English class. They are talking about what their perfect holiday would be like…

Jane: If you could go on holiday to any country in the world, where would you go, Gregg?

Gregg: Mm… that’s a tough question! My dream is to go to Cancun in Mexico. I’d love to stay in a luxury hotel by the sea and relax on the white sand beaches every day. What is your dream holiday?

Jane: Mm…I can’t decide on one place. My dream is to go travelling around Europe. The perfect holiday for me would involve a lot of sightseeing and adventures. I’d love to visit Venice because it seems magical, and Paris too.

Gregg: Who would you go with?

Jane: I’d go with my best friend, Anna. What about you? Who would you go with?

Gregg: I’d definitely go with my family. How long would you go for?

Jane: If I had enough money, I’d never stop travelling! What about you?

Gregg: Me too! If I had plenty of money, I’d happily stay in Mexico with my family!
