A: The front desk told me to ask you for sightseeing advice.
B: Of course. I'd be more than happy to help. I am, after all, the hotel's concierge.
A: Concierge? What exactly is that?
B: We advise you on where to visit, eat, or shop during your stay here in New York.
A: Great! So where should I start my sightseeing?
B: The Statue of Liberty is always a good place to begin.
A: I saw the Statue of Liberty on my last visit here. Can you recommend somewhere else?
B: Hmm. What type of interests do you have?
A: In my spare time, I really like to view art and go running.
B: Aha! Have you been to Central Park or the Museum of Modern Art?
A: No, but I've heard a lot about both.
B: Well, Central Park is wonderful for running. Afterwards, you should head to the Museum to enjoy the art.
A: Great! That sounds like a plan. Thanks a lot.
B: I'm sure you'll have a good time there.
A: I was told to see you about going sightseeing.
B: It's my pleasure. I'm the hotel's concierge, at your service.
A: Concierge? Could you explain that to me?
B: We help direct hotel visitors to popular places to visit, eat, and shop.
A: Very good. So where shall I begin my sightseeing?
B: I would suggest the Statue of Liberty.
A: Gee, I've already seen the Statue of Liberty. What about another site?
B: Let me see. What do you like to do in your spare time?
A: I really like to run. And I like art.
B: Well, there you go! Have you ever visited either Central Park or the Museum of Modern Art?
A: No, but I've been meaning to.
B: Well, Central Park is fantastic for running. Then you can go to the Museum to look at the beautiful art.
A: That sounds like a great plan. I'll do that.
B: Enjoy your run and your visit!
A: I need some sightseeing advice.
B: That's what I'm here for, sir. Every good hotel has a concierge like me.
A: I don't travel a lot. What exactly is a concierge?
B: A concierge helps visitors like you find great places to visit, shop, and eat.
A: That's great! So tell me, where should I go first?
B: I'd suggest that you start at the Statue of Liberty.

A: When I have some free time, I often spend it running or at museums.
B: Well, have you ever been to either Central Park or the Museum of Modern Art?
A: No, but I sure would like to.
B: Central Park is great for just about everything outdoors. Then you can visit the Museum of Modern Art.
A: Both places sound great. I'll try to do that today.
B: Enjoy the views at both places.
A: I'm going sightseeing, but I'd like to get your advice first.
B: I'm only too happy to help. Tourists should always check with their concierge first.
A: Concierge? I'm not familiar with that word.
B: A concierge directs visitors to the city's great tourist, shopping, and eating places.
A: That sounds great. Now, is there any place that I should hit first?
B: Well, if you're like most people, you'll want to go to the Statue of Liberty.
A: I've already seen it, I loved it, but today I want to go somewhere else.
B: Sure! Tell me about your interests.
A: I like to run and I like to see the works of the masters.
B: You'll get along fabulously at Central Park and the Museum of Modern Art! Have you been to either?
A: No, I just haven't had the opportunity.
B: You'll love Central Park for running. Later on, you can go to the Museum of Modern Art.
A: Thank you. That's what I'll do.
B: This might be the best day of your visit.
A: I need some sightseeing advice. I was told to come to see you.
B: As your concierge, it is my pleasure to help you, sir.
A: Concierge? Are we speaking English here?
B: A concierge helps you find all the great places for visiting, shopping, and eating.
A: What would you suggest that I visit first?
B: How about starting at the Statue of Liberty? Many people like to begin there.
A: The last time I was here, I visited the Statue. So do you have another place in mind?
B: I think so. Tell me what interests you.
A: I'm big on running, although maybe I like art even more than running.
B: Then you must go to Central Park and the Museum of Modern Art! Have you been to either one?
A: No. I haven't had a chance to go to either of them.
B: Both places are usually crowded with natives and tourists. You'll love the Park and the Museum.
A: Thank you. That's great advice.
B: This might be the best day of your visit.
A: Can you give me some advice about going sightseeing?

A: What in the world is a concierge?
B: We direct visitors to all the great tourist, shopping, and eating spots in the city.
A: Then what would you recommend as a starting point for my sightseeing?
B: Definitely the Statue of Liberty. I think that that is everyone's favorite first stop.
A: Actually, I've already been there twice. Do you have another suggestion?
B: I think I can come up with something. How do you spend your spare time?
A: I keep my body healthy by running and my mind active by visiting museums.
B: Well, the Museum of Modern Art and Central Park were made for you! Have you gone to either one?
A: No, although I've heard great things about both of them.
B: You don't want to miss either place. Central Park and the Museum of Modern Art are big and beautiful.
A: Sounds great! I'll get my running gear and then I'm out of here.
B: This is a day you're going to remember for a long time.
