Can you make some sentences using the words from the list?
For example:

Transmilenio is always crowded.


I don’t take a taxi to work because it is expensive.
Sometimes there is a delay with international flights.
I think Colombian food is delightful.

Exercise 1: Read the conversation between two passengers that are in a plane from Bogotá to the USA. They travel alone, but they meet
during the flight.

Pilot: Dear passengers please take your seats. The flight to Florida is about to take off.

Angie: Hi, I’m Angie. This is my seat. Sorry.


Lina: Ok, no problem I can move to the window seat, it’s my favorite.
Angie: I don’t like to watch through the window during a flight.
Lina: I’m Lina. Do you travel alone?
Angie: Yes, I am alone. Is it ok if we talk for a while? I’m a bit nervous.
/
Lina: No problem I travel alone too. I travel to Orlando. Do you know that place?
Angie: No, this is my first time out of the country and I am nervous because I travel alone. I have some family in Miami, I go to visit them.
Lina: That sounds great. Miami is a beautiful place. I travel this time because I have some plans in Orlando with a friend. We go to spend some
days at Disney World.
Angie: Wow, I can imagine you are excited about the trip.
Lina: Yes, I am. And what do you think about this airline, Do you like it?
Angie: I don’t travel by plane too much, but this airline is very comfortable and the tickets are not cheap but it’s ok.
Lina: I like this airline a lot. I think the ticket prices are expensive. But I like the food, its’ delightful, that’s my favorite part. And the service at the
airport with the luggage is really good and safe. I rarely travel alone.
Angie: I never travel alone. A cousin travels next weekend but I don’t want to wait until the weekend. There are some delays with international
flights.
Lina: Yes, that’s right. And the airport is crowded on weekends too. I don’t like to travel on Saturdays, it’s awful. On Saturdays many people travel
to visit friends, family or just to spend time out of the city.
Angie: Well, I rarely travel out of the city. I have two sons and I usually spend time at home in Bogotá. I’m a housewife.
Lina: I have two children too, one girl and one boy. But they don’t go to school, they both go to college.
Angie: So they are almost adults. My sons are teenagers. They do all things teenagers do except housework. They go camping and hang out with
friends all of the time.
Lina: I know. And your husband? Is he in Miami?
Angie: No, he stays in Bogotá this time. He works and doesn’t have holidays right now, so he is at home with our stressful teenagers.
Lina: That sounds good for you. So you have holidays and free time for yourself. It’s time for you to rest.
Angie: Of course, it’s the perfect moment to relax. I have a sister in Miami and I want to stay with her for a week or two. I want to go to the beach,
swim, read my books and rest.
Lina: I have some relatives in Florida, but this time I want to meet a friend in Orlando to visit Disney world. I don’t want boring holidays this time.
Angie: I understand, you want some excitement. I want to go there if I have time.
Lina: That’s right. I am still young for some excitement. If you want we can meet there.
Angie: Great! Let’s change e-mails to keep in touch.
Lina: Of course. This is my e-mail linagarciap@....
