  4. 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.

  5. 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.
