Speaker A: Going out can sometimes be a bit stressful. You know you’re going to be around friends, and you’re going to have a great time. It should be as simple as that, right? But I often find myself putting a lot of effort into it. I spend a few minutes, maybe half an hour – at the worst a whole hour – looking for the perfect outfit to wear. If I don’t find something, you know I’ll be late!
Speaker В: I go out probably three times a week these days. I didn’t use to go out so often, but since I stopped my evening job I’ve had more free time. My favourite places to go are cafés. A couple of new ones have recently opened up in my area. I really like the one that’s just opened across from the park. It’s very fashionable and all the cool people hang out there. Sometimes it’s so busy it’s hard to find a table!
Speaker С: People go out for many reasons – to hang out with friends, get out of the house or just have a good time. It may not seem like a necessity, but going out is actually a great way to relax and take your mind off a hard day of studying or working, to celebrate after your exams, things like that. This must be good for our mental health, don’t you think?
Speaker D: Going out is a popular activity for young people. I should know – I’m one of them! When my friends and I go out, we make smart decisions about where we’re going. We often go to places where they’ve got something on offer – for example, the pizza place down the road from my house. On Tuesdays, they give you a 2-for-1 Pizza Special. Who could pass up a deal like that?
Speaker E: My friends and I hang out in one of our favourite places once a week or so. But lately I’ve been feeling a bit bored with that routine. I suggested to everyone that we go bowling instead, for a change. They weren’t really into the idea at first, but I begged them to go just once. We went last weekend and we had such a great time. None of us played very well, but just doing something different was exciting.
