Here we are on the streets of London… It's an international city, full of people from all over the world. So, let's go and meet some of them!

PERSON 1

Emma

Hi Milly. Nice to meet you. Whereabouts are you from?

Milly

East Grinstead in West Sussex – probably about 50 minutes south of London. 

Emma

And what's it like there?

Milly

I guess it's kind of a countryside town, so a lot different than London. Quite green and nice. I like it. 

Emma

What do you like the most about it?

Milly

I think you go down the high street and everyone tends to know one another. It's homely, you feel safe there. It's friendly. 

PERSON 2

Emma

Hello, what's your name?

Paul

Hi, I'm Paul.

Emma

Hi Paul, nice to meet you. Whereabouts do you come from?

Paul

I come from London, just down the river here.

Emma

And what is it like?

Paul

The best way I can answer that is to tell you what I'm going to do today. I'm going to meet a friend, have a coffee, then we're going to see a play at the Globe Theatre, and afterwards there'll be plenty of places open so we'll find somewhere for a late supper.

Emma

What is it you like most about London?

Paul

I think there are so many things that go on in the city, so many people and types of people who live here, it's just exciting and wonderful.

PERSON 3

Emma

Hello, what's your name?

Mariska

Hello, my name is Mariska.

Emma

Hello Mariska, nice to meet you. Where are you from?

Mariska

I'm from Holland.

Emma

What's Holland like?

Mariska

Holland is a small country, very flat, with beaches.

Emma

What do you like about Holland?

Mariska

I like the place where I live. It's a little town near the beach. And I like the sun and the quiet. It's really quiet.

PERSON 4

Katie

My name is Katie.

Emma

Hello, nice to meet you. And where are you from?

Katie

I'm from Canada.

Emma

Wow, what is it like there?

Katie

It's really cold there.

Emma

What do you like about it?

I like how big it is.
