Inglês - Compreensão de Texto Asking someone out

No exercício de compreensão de texto de hoje, Tony convida Karen para sair. 

Aqui vai:

Karen: Hello.

Tony: Hi, is Karen there?

Karen: Speaking.

Tony: Hey, Karen. Tony here, from the gym. How are you?

Karen: Hi Tony, I’m good. How are you?

Tony: I’m doing great. I didn’t see you at the gym last week – is everything OK?

Karen: Yes, wow, that’s sweet of you to ask. The reason I didn’t show up at the gym is, I had my finals last week.

Tony: Tough week, huh?

Karen: Tell me about it! I slept all weekend, I was so tired.

Tony: Well, I hope all this hard work paid off! How did you do?

Karen: It’s hard to tell since the results aren’t out yet, but I think I did pretty well in general.

Tony: I’m glad to know. Listen, what are you doing tomorrow night?

Karen: Nothing special. Why?

Tony: Uh, would you like to have dinner?

Karen: Sounds good! Where are we going?

Tony: How about some Italian? I know a very nice place nearby.

Karen: Great, I love Italian.

Tony: So, I’ll pick you up at 7.

Karen: Sounds good. See you then.

Tony: Great, bye.
