Ruth: Hey Akane, didn’t we have a really good time in the city in Oita last weekend?
Akane: Yeah we had a great time. I’m glad we went.
Ruth: Oh me too. It was so good! You know, I thought it was really good to get out of this small town. It was really good to go somewhere bigger.
Akane: Definitely. I really like big cities.
Ruth: And wasn’t it good that we managed to get some shopping done?
Akane: Definitely. I think we got a little carried away though.
Ruth: Possibly yeah, possibly. What did you buy again?
Akane: I bought a new skirt and I’m wearing it right now.
Ruth: Oh of course, yeah. Oh it looks really nice.
Akane: Do you like it?
Ruth: Yeah, yeah. Is this the first time you’ve worn it?
Akane: It is actually.
Ruth: And did you buy anything else?
Akane: Erm I think I bought a new CD.
Ruth: That’s right you did. Yes and we also bought a few things from the 100 yen shop didn’t we?
Akane: We did.
Ruth: Yeah it was a good day.
Akane: Did you really like the 100 yen shop?
Ruth: It was fantastic! You know that’s the biggest 100 yen shop that I’ve ever been to!
Akane: Me too. Five floors! Can you believe it?
Ruth: I know, it’s fantastic! I seem to remember we were in there for about 2 hours, were we?
Akane: 2 hours. I think you’re right.
Ruth: I think we were in there for quite a long time.
Akane: We were. We were really enjoying ourselves in there.
Ruth: But it was worthwhile.
Akane: Definitely. What did you buy?
Ruth: Oh that’s a good question. Yeah I think I bought a t-shirt didn’t ?
Akane: Yeah I think you did.
Ruth: Yeah it was really nice. I bought a t-shirt and I bought a dictionary.
Akane: Oh that’s right, your dictionary! Have you used it yet?
Ruth: Erm I’ve used it a couple of times but maybe not as much as I should have.
Akane: Well hopefully it will help you to study Japanese.
Ruth: Oh I’m hoping so.
Akane: It was quite a big dictionary.
Ruth: Yeah, yeah it was expensive so…
Akane: How much was it again?
Ruth: It was three and a half thousand yen, three thousand five hundred.
Akane: So that’s about35 dollars.
Ruth: Yeah, 35 dollars. That’s a lot for me.
Akane: It is for me too.
Akane: But books are important.
Ruth: Absolutely. Don’t you think we should go back to Oita sometime?
Akane: Definitely/ When do you want to go next?
Ruth: Why don’t we go next weekend?
Akane: That’s a great idea and we can do some more shopping.
Ruth: Brilliant! Ok, let’s do that next weekend
