Read out the similar conversation below
Alex: Okay, what do we want to do now?
Lucy: I want to go on the Katanga Canyon. I like water rides.
Alex: Mm, I don’t mind going on them but they’re not very exciting. In fact, they are boring.
Lucy: Look at that. It’s fantastic!
Alex: What? What are you excited about?
Lucy: Over there. That’s amazing. I want to go on that!
Alex: I’m not so sure. I don’t like heights.
Lucy: Oh, come on. It’s great. Don’t be frightened.
Alex: Oh, all right.
After the ride
Lucy: Are you okay, Alex? You look a little ill.
Alex: I’m fine.
Lucy: Do you want to go on it again?
Alex: No, I don’t!
Lucy: Ha ha, you’re scared. Chicken!
