Conversation (1): Invitation & Declining

Milton: Hey, Rose. Where’re you headingfor?

Rose: Hi, Milton. My sis. and I are going to Taipei Zoo today. Wanna join us?

Milton: Thanks, but no thanks. I just went there with my friends last Sat. It was really crowded!

Rose: Indeed. It’s always filled with people during holidays and weekends. That’s why we are going today, since we both have the day off.

Milton: Lucky you…. Okay now, I’d better go work now. Wish you fun today.

Conversation 2 expressing different feelings toward the same thing
Conversation (2): Expressing Different Feelings toward the Same Thing

Sara: Melissa, did you ever visit the Nocturnal Animal House in Taipei Zoo?

Melissa: Yes. But I just visited it once when I was in primary school and never set foot in it from then on.

Sara: Why? Recently I found it interesting to see various cute and furry little animals inside the House. Besides, the owls there always remind me of those in the Harry Potter stories.

Melissa: Are you kidding? I don’t even like the House at all. I always find it creepy to stay inside and have so many little creaturesstaring at me. It actually makes me very uncomfortable.

Sara: Okay then. I guess different people simply feel differently toward the same thing. However, I’m still happy to know how you feel about the Nocturnal Animal House.
