Do you always remember your dreams?
I can’t remember my dream right now.
I sprained my ankle.
My muscles are burning after I exercise.
I hurt my back.
My head hurts.
I feel like I am going to pass out.
Going to Kyoto
Are you going to Kyoto today?
I just went to Kyoto last week.
The illumination in Kyoto was beautiful.
The leaves of the trees turned color in Kyoto. Many leave were a deep red.
The scenery was beautiful in Arashiyama when I went.
It was a beautiful scene.
The autumn colors along the Kamogawa river were pretty.
Plan/ Did you…..
When was the last time you went to Kyoto?
When was the last time you bought new clothes.
I went to an outlet sale last weekend. I made a shopping list and bought a new coat, a new sweater and many pairs of tights.
What do you like to shop for in Shinjuku?
What do you like to eat when you go out to eat?
What kind of sports do you like to do?
On the Weekend / I am scared of ….
On the weekend, I don’t drink alcohol.
I can drink a lot.
I am not a strong drinker.
I can only drink a little alcohol before I feel dizzy and pass out.
I am going hiking this weekend.
I will climb for two and a half hours until I reach the top.
It is an easy mountain to hike
Are you afraid of getting lost on the hiking trail?
I am scared of getting lost.
I stay on the trail when I hike.
I am scared of frogs because I had a nightmare when I was a child.
I am not scared of cockroaches but I think they are gross.
I think snakes are disgusting and gross.
I feel uncomfortable when I see a frog near me. It grosses me out.
Almost everyone at the restaurant is my age.
Almost everyone in the barber shop were older men waiting for a haircut.
Reservations / Every two months
I get a hair cut every two months.
I go to play golf every two months.
I play in a golf tournament with my friends.
We play on the 1st Sunday of the month, every two months.
Everyone makes their own arrangements to get to the golf course.
I usually make my reservations for the train and the hotel online.
I don’t like to make reservations online as I think that the phone is quicker and more efficient.
I don’t like using the phone.
I like receiving confirmations for my reservations by email because it has a lot of data.
Making a reservation online is easier than using a phone.
Small Talk / Taxis
I sometimes like to chat with the driver.
I talk about the weather or about the news.
Sometimes I don’t feel like speaking to the driver, so I ask him to stop talking.
Some drivers are very talkative.
When I don’t want to talk, I look out the window of the taxi.
Sometimes I pretend to sleep when I don’t want to talk.
I try not to sleep because I don’t want the taxi driver to take me a long way to my home.
I want to get to my destination by the shortest way.
I don’t want to take the long way to my destination.
