Things to do in London
Hana talks with Daniel about things you can do in her hometown of London.
Daniel: Hey Hana, how are you?
Hana: I’m fine, thank you.
Daniel: So tell me, you lived in London, right?
Daniel: Well, I’m planning to go to London and I’m really looking forward to it. But I’m not really sure and I don’t really know what to expect and what I can see there, can you tell me a little bit, please?
Hana: Yeah, sure. London is a very interesting place. It’s a place where a lot of cultures are mixed. There are lots of historical buildings, for example, Buckingham Palace and Big Ben. There is a very famous museum called the British Museum. And a lot of people come and visit every year.
Daniel: That’s really good because I’m really interested in history and I really want to see history there. But is there any other thing that I should see in London or I should try in London, for example, is there any good local British food?
Hana: Well, England isn’t very famous for food, but it is famous because a lot of food from different countries is all gathered. For example, there’s a very good place called The Camden Market and you can go and buy food from all over the world.
Daniel: Good, that sounds really interesting, really looking forward to it. Thank you.
Hana: You’re welcome.
