An Itinerary for A Foreign Friend

Conversation

After a quick greeting, use the following questions as a guideline to form an interesting conversation with your tutor. Feel free to diverge from these suggestions if anything interesting comes up.

  • A foreign visitor has only one day to spend in your country. Where should this visitor go on that day? Why? Use specific reasons and details to support your choice.
    • What are the top places they should visit in your country?
    • What kinds of food should they eat in your country?
    • How should they get around in your country?

Vocabulary
