Read the following dialogue between a barman and Paco in a pub about some interesting matters Paco asks him.
Paco visited London in topic 2 and in topic 3 he visited Brighton, in the south-east of England. Now in topic 4 Paco is in Liverpool. Did he enjoy the city of Liverpudlians? Yes, he did, absolutely.
But, why did Paco want to go there?
Because one ofhis favourite bands grew up in the famous pub The Cavern Club, the Beatles. Furthermore, now Fernando Torres is playing for Liverpool Football Club in Anfield Stadium, another place he didn't want to miss.
When he was ordering some drinks in a popular pub in town, he started to ask the barman about some doubts and curiosities about Liverpool he had in mind:
Barman: Anything toorder, mate?
Paco: Yes, please. I'd like to order four pints of lager, for me and my friends.
Barman: Sure, mate. Your face is familiar to me. Were you having any drink here yesterday?
Paco: Yes, I was. But I can't remember you. Were you working yesterday, then?
Barman: I was, definitely. I'm working in this pub since I came from London. By the way, did you enjoy our special house beer? We'refamous for that.
Paco: Not really, I didn't. But we had a good time drinking some lager and playing darts. May I ask you something about this city, just a couple of things?
Barman: Absolutely. Do you have any doubt or question about what?
Paco: Did you have this strange English accent before?
Barman: No, I didn't. But I have gradually acquired this scouse accent because if you work in a pub youhave to talk to the people a lot and listen to all of them as well.
Paco: I see. Were you working as a barman in London?
Barman: Yes, I was. Let me recommend you some wine and some food just in case you are hungry later...
Paco: OK. Great. Do you mean any special house meal?
Barman: Well, we've got a fantastic offer. If you order a few pints and a bottle of this wine you can have some snacksfor free, although I think there is little wine for you and your friends. Anyway, you can order more than one bottle if you want to.
Paco: All right. Let me tell my friends first.
