  (opening hours, ticket prices, transportation,
  services, and history?)

Conversation (1): Invitation & Declining
Milton: Hey, Rose. Where’re you heading for?
Rose: Hi, Milton. My sis. and I are going to Taipei
  Zoo today. Wanna join us?
Milton: Thanks, but no thanks. I just went there with
  my friends last Sat. It was really crowded!
Rose: Indeed. It’s always filled with people during
  holidays and weekends. That’s why we are going
  today, since we both have the day off.
Milton: Lucky you…. Okay now, I’d better go work
  now. Wish you fun today.
    Conversation (2): Expressing Different
      Feelings toward the Same Thing
Sara: Melissa, did you ever visit the Nocturnal Animal House
  in Taipei Zoo?
Melissa: Yes. But I just visited it once when I was in primary
  school and never set foot in it from then on.
Sara: Why? Recently I found it interesting to see various
  cute and furry little animals inside the House. Besides, the
  owls there always remind me of those in the Harry Potter
  stories.
Melissa: Are you kidding? I don’t even like the House at all.
  I always find it creepy to stay inside and have so many
  little creatures staring at me. It actually makes me very
  uncomfortable.
Sara: Okay then. I guess different people simply feel
  differently toward the same thing. However, I’m still happy
  to know how you feel about the Nocturnal Animal House.

  like going there? Why or why not?

  represent your personality?

  animals for entertainment. Do you agree?
