Talking about Yesterday

Mike and Lucas are talking about what they did yesterday…

Mike: Hi Lucas, how are you doing?

Lucas: Hi Mike! I’m fine, just a little tired. How are you?

Mike: I’m tired today too. What did you get up to yesterday?

Lucas: Well, I ran into Jamie yesterday and he said he was throwing a party. He said I could

come if I wanted to, so I went there and stayed until midnight. It was so much fun!

Mike: That sounds like fun. I wish I had been there too…

Lucas: What did you do yesterday?

Mike: I went swimming with couple of friends and then we played basketball.

Lucas: That sounds fun as well. We should organise a game of basketball sometime.

Mike: Yeh, I’d love that! I can find out if anyone else is interested too. Just let me know

when you have free time.

Lucas: Sounds great! I’ll call you tonight.
