Assistir ao vídeo


'What's for dinner?' Tim asked.

'I'm going to fry some fish,' Pat answered.

'I don't want any fish,' Tim said. 'I had fish for lunch. We can go to a restaurant this evening.' 'That's a good idea,'

Pat answered. Tim and Pat went to a restaurant. They sat at a table and a waiter brought them the menu.

'I want some roast beef,' Tim said. 'What do you want, Pat?'

'I want a veal chop,' Pat said.

Tim turned to the waiter.

'One roast beef and a veal chop, please. And we want some potatoes and peas,' he said.

'I'm sorry, sir,' the waiter said. 'We haven't any roast beef and we haven't any veal chops.'

'But they're on the menu!' Tim said angrily.

'I'm sorry, sir,' the waiter answered. 'That's yesterday's menu.'

'What do you suggest?' Tim asked.

'Well, sir,' the waiter said. 'We have some nice fresh fish.'
