Johnny: Happy New Year!
Fadi: Stop, please! Enough New Year!
Johnny: It’s the first time I’ve seen you this year! You’re supposed to say ‘Happy New Year!’
Fadi: Ok, ok...happy new year to you too, then!
Johnny: It will be Chinese New Year soon – then we can do it all again!
Fadi: Fine, ok, let’s wait until then, though, eh?
Magda: Hello eveyone!
Magda: Happy new year!
Fadi: Oh, please!
Magda: I’m only trying to be friendly....
Fadi: Yeah, sure, sorry...can we think about something else now please?
Magda: Have you made any new year’s resolutions?
Johnny: New year’s what?
Magda: New year’s resolutions. Olivia told me about it - at the beginning of the year, you should decide to do something, and do it all year.
Johnny: What kind of thing?
Fadi: Something like stop smoking, or go to the gym everyday, or study more...
All: Hi Olivia! Hey! Hello!
Olivia: Hmmph. Tony – could I have a large coffee please? Make it extra strong!
Fadi: Looks like someone’s having a bad day...!
Olivia: Oh shut up Fadi!
Fadi (sarcastically): Sorry!
Magda: What’s up Olivia?
Olivia: My website isn’t working properly. I need to fix it.
Fadi: Here’s the right man to help you!
Harry: Hello there! Are you talking about me?
Olivia: I’ve got problems with my website again....
Harry: I told you I should have set it up the first time! You should have asked me!
Olivia: Ok, ok...you were right...
Harry: What’s the problem?
Olivia: The online sales page doesn’t work. People can’t buy my shoes!
Harry: I’m sure I can help fix it.
Olivia: Go on then. Come over to my flat tonight, and we’ll have a look.
Bindyu: Oh, sorry Olivia, I’m not sure he can come to your flat tonight.
Harry: Yeah, I can. I’m not busy tonight.
Bindyu: I thought we were going to the cinema?
Harry: Were we? Sorry, I didn’t know. I’d like to help Olivia, if I can...
Olivia: Oh listen Harry...don’t worry if you can’t come and help.
Harry: No. I’ll come. I love websites – you know!
Johnny: Here’s another one of our friends...thank goodness for that...
All: Hello Carlos!
Carlos: Hello there!
Magda: We were talking about new year’s resolutions. What’s yours?
Carlos: New year’s what?
Magda (sighing): New year’s resolution - at the beginning of the year, you should decide to do something, and do it all year.
Carlos: Oh, I see...well I want to be a chef...
Fadi: We know that, it’s not new.
Johnny: It has to be something new!
Magda: Yes – something you want to do this year!
Carlos: Oh..ok...I see, well...let me think...something I want to do this year...I know, I want to ask Sarah out on a date!
Magda: Oh...well...it looks like you have a chance right now, Carlos!
Sarah: Hello everyone! Were you talking about me?
Carlos: Well, no, erm yes, I mean...
Magda (whispering): Go on, Carlos!
Fadi: Carlos has got a question to ask you...
Sarah: Oh yes?
Carlos: Oh, yes, erm...well...I was wondering if...erm...
