Intro: Hotch Potch English: The Mega Minute!

Hello, and welcome to Hotch Potch English, and today I'm talking to...

Rory: "Hi, I'm Rory, from Dublin, in Ireland."

Eileen: "And I'm Eileen, and we live in Malahide, in Dublin."

OK, and tell me, Rory, why are you here in Paris?

Rory: "I'm here in Paris to learn to become an English language teacher.

OK. Rory, what do you know about Paris? Have you been here before?

Rory: "Yes, I've been here before. Over the years we've been here on holiday, and I've been here on business as well. So we know the sites, but we haven't spent extended periods of time here, so we're looking forward to having a few weeks to be able to learn more about Paris.

OK, and Eileen, what's your favourite thing about Paris, if you have one?

Eileen: "Oh, I like a lot of things about Paris. Maybe drinking coffee, and just exploring and listening to the people and being part of Paris life..."

And are you thinking of staying here for quite a while or you're just passing through?

Eileen: "No, we're not passing through, for once, we're hopefully going to stay in Paris for an extended time, maybe up to two years, maybe beyond, and so we'll see how it goes.

OK, 'maybe beyond'! Rory, what do you think of that?

Rory: "Yes, I think, I like the sound of it, it's good. I mean, two years would certainly be our horizon at the moment, and if it goes beyond that we'll be very happy."

Have you got a favourite place in Paris, Rory?

Rory: "I like the Latin Quarter. I must say, I like the atmosphere there. But there are many other quarters as well that have their own special character.

And you know that Paris is rather well known for its Irish pubs - there's quite a lot of them! Do you think you'll be going there?

Rory: "I might go to one or two, but not too many! I came here to enjoy the French atmosphere. But it'll be nice to go to an Irish pub from time to time."

OK, good talking to you two. Have a good time in Paris!

Rory & Eileen: "Thank you, Bye bye!
