Useful English dialogue

schoolgirls on Ha Long pierI went for a walk this afternoon. Not much else you can do on a Sunday in Ha Long City (apart from taking the boat out into Ha Long Bay. But the weather wasn’t great this weekend, so we cancelled our planned boat trip).

As I strolled along the Ha Long pier, a bunch of giggling girls wanted to try out their English on me. I guess they must have been in their early teens. The dialogue went something like this

What’s your name?


My name is (unintelligible Vietnamese girl’s name). Where you come from?


Where is your wife?

– uhm – Germany. (I didn’t want to go into detail that might have traumatised them)

Are you lonely?

– uhm… ?

I guess this sequence of questions can come in handy for some kind of women in some kind of situations.

But who taught these innocent schoolgirls to ask these questions?Vietnamese schoolgirls, Ha Long City
