1. That’s not long at all
Ellie calls her friend Marika to talk about their upcoming trip to Edinburgh.
Ellie: Hi, Marika! How’s it going? Marika: Fine, thanks. Funny, I was just going to call you.
Ellie: Ah, great minds and all
that. Listen! I’m just about to book my train ticket, and I wanted to check that the time is OK for you. You haven’t booked yet, have you?
Marika: No, not yet. How much is it going to be? Ellie: With our railcards, it’ll be £196.60 for the two of us. Marika: That’s not too bad. So, what time does the train leave?
Ellie: Hang on a minute... Ah, here it is. We leave from Euston at 17.40, and we arrive in Edinburgh Waverley at 22.19. Marika: Perfect! That’s not long at all, is it?
Ellie: Nope. Four hours and 39 minutes.
