Good morning. Welcome to the US. My name’s Chuck and I’m your cab driver for today.
Hi,I’m Harry. I’m from England. I’m so happy to be in New-York, and by the way Harry, we call cabs taxis back in England
Don’t worry. I’m sure you’ll enjoy your vacation here.
Are these your bags? Please put your luggage in the trunk of the car.What do you call it in England?
We call it the boot of the car. Oh dear, I guess there’s a lot I need to learn.
Vacation? Don’t you mean my holiday ? Something else different!
The sidewalk? Don’t you mean the pavement………? And we call them policemen!!
Well,we’d better go now, I’m parked on the sidewalk and there’s a cop coming towards us!
