Todd: My hometown is San Francisco.
Meg: Oh, nice. Is your town beautiful?
Todd: Yes. San Francisco is very beautiful. It has a nice view of the ocean.
Meg: Sounds nice. Is your town clean?
Todd: It’s pretty clean. Sometimes, it’s dirty. Some places are dirty, but usually, the city is clean.
Meg: Oh. Is San Francisco dangerous?
Todd: No, it’s not too dangerous. Sometimes, we have crime, but it’s safe.
Meg: Great. Is your town expensive?
Todd: Yes. San Francisco is very expensive. Everything is expensive. Food is expensive. Housing is expensive. Shopping is expensive. Everything.
Meg: Oh, really? Is San Francisco famous?
Todd: Yes. It’s very famous. In America, it’s famous for its bridge. We have the Golden Gate Bridge. It’s the world’s most famous bridge, I think.
Meg: I know that bridge. Is your town hot?
Todd: Never. San Francisco is never hot. It’s never super cold, but it’s never hot. It’s always warm or cool.
Meg: Sounds great. Is San Francisco interesting?
Todd: I think so. It’s a very interesting city. We have people from everywhere, and we have good food. We have nature nearby, and we have interesting buildings.
Meg: Wow. I’d like to go there.
Todd: Ooh, you should. What about your city? What’s your city?
Meg: My city is Chicago.
Todd: Ooh, Chicago. Chicago. Is your city beautiful?
Meg: Yes. It’s very beautiful, with lots of tall buildings and a big lake.
Todd: Ooh, nice. Is Chicago clean?
Meg: Some parts of Chicago are clean, and other parts are a little dirty.
Todd: How about dangerous? Is Chicago dangerous?
Meg: Similarly, some parts are dangerous and some parts are safe.
Todd: Yeah. San Francisco is the same. I think every American city is the same.
Meg: I think that’s true.
Todd: Most places are safe, but some places are dangerous.
Todd: Is Chicago expensive?
Meg: Yes. Because it’s such a big city, almost everything is expensive.
Meg: Food, attractions, parking, entertainment, everything.
Todd: Sounds like San Francisco.
Meg: I think so, a little similar.
Todd: Is it hot?
Meg: It can be hot in the summer. Usually July or August, it gets hot sometimes.
Todd: Is it interesting?
Meg: Yes, of course. Chicago is very interesting. We have many museums, and things to do, and we also have nature. At the lake, you can go and enjoy a day on the beach.
Todd: Oh, nice.
Todd: Is Chicago by the ocean?
Meg: It’s not by the ocean. It’s by a really big lake called Lake Michigan. What about San Francisco? Is it by the ocean?
Todd: Yeah, San Francisco is on the ocean. It’s on the Pacific Ocean.
Todd: o we have really nice beaches.
Meg: Do you like the beach?
Todd: I do, but the beaches in San Francisco are a little cold.
Todd: In Los Angeles, they’re warm, but Los Angeles is not interesting, and it’s expensive, and it’s not beautiful, so I don’t like Los Angeles.
Meg: So we should stick with San Francisco.
Todd: Or Chicago.
