English Conversation about Welcoming Visitors
Hi, Bill, I’m so glad to see you. How are you doing?
Fine. I miss you so much, Uncle Jim.
Me too. We haven’t seen each other for years, have we?
Yes, it’s been 3 years now.
How time flies! Now you are a young man out of a little boy.
How is Aunt Debra?
Couldn’t be better. How are your parents doing?
Not bad. They plan to visit you next year.
Really? I’ll be so excited to see them. Make yourself at home. Let me make some tea for you.
OK, thank you, Uncle Jim.
Hello! I’m Mrs. Chen. This is my husband. We moved into this neighborhood last week.
Nice to meet you, Mr. and Mrs. Chen. Come in, please. Have a seat. Would you like some coffee?
No, thanks. We’ll just stay for a minute.
Well, what can I do for you then?
We’re having a party this Friday evening at our place, and we’d like you and your family to join us.
The party will begin at 5:30 pm, And will probably last for three or four hours.
Why don’t you give me your telephone number? I’ll call you tomorrow and let you know.
Please do. This is our phone number. We live just across the street.
Do you need any help preparing for the party, Mrs. Chen? I’m free every afternoon.
That’s very nice of you, but won’t it be too troublesome for you?
How about 4:00 pm?
I’ll be there.
