A: Hi, I am your new neighbor and was wondering if I could ask you a question or two.

B: Hi! I would be happy to answer any questions you might have.

A: Everyone here seems very friendly.

B: Yes, many of us have lived here a long time and know each other well.

A: How long have you lived here?

B: I have lived in this building for ten years.

A: When I get settled, would you consider giving me a list of places you use, like cleaners and grocery stores?

B: I can help you with that. Would you like to go to the local farmer's market with me this morning?

A: That would be great!

B: Fine. I'll knock on your door around ten o'clock then.


A: Hi, I am your new neighbor and would like to ask you about a few things.

A: Have you lived here a very long time?

B: I first moved here ten years ago.
