Talking about cultural and other activities
Konversation über kulturelle Aktivitäten


You: Have you been to see any good films recently?

Colleague 2: Oh yes, I saw the sequel to Batman.

You: What's it like? Isn't it just a big Hollywood blockbuster?

Colleague 2: Yes and no. It's got a bit more to it than that. I thought the storyline was really different from the usual superhero films.

You: Do you know who directed it?

Colleague 2: I think the director's name is Christopher Nolan - I'd never heard of him before.

You: No, the name doesn't ring a bell. Anyway, you think it's worth seeing then.

Colleague 2: Definitely. The part I liked the best was?

You: No! Don't give anything away. You'll spoil it!

Colleague 2: OK then. Just go and see it. I bet you'll love it.

Art exhibitions

You: When I was in Hamburg recently, I saw a fantastic exhibition by Mark Rothko. Have you seen it advertised?

Colleague 3: Is that the poster with the big red abstract painting on it?

You: Yes, probably. He only did large abstract paintings, all pretty much the same but I like them a lot.

Colleague 3: It didn't look much on the poster.

You: Well, when you are near to the paintings, they are really huge. Then they're quite impressive. Really powerful.

Colleague 3: Mmm. Maybe I'll take a look after all. I'm going to be in Hamburg next week and I've got the afternoon off.

You: I think the exhibition's still on. I know it was extended.

Colleague 3: Great. Thanks for the tip.

You: Let me know if you liked it!
