Antonio wants to improve his general language level and especially his understanding. Today the focus is reformulation.
~ “Do you eat meat?”
~ “Are you asking if I am a vegetarian?”
In the UK we eat turkey at Christmas.
~ Do you mean Turkey like the country?
~ Yes, but you can’t eat a country! The animal is spelt with a small ‘t’: t.u.r.k.e.y.
~ Do you take ice in your drink?
~ I understand the word ‘ice’ but I don’t understand if you mean wine, beer, coca cola etc?
Are you asking me if I take ice in my wine like a Spritzer? Or are you asking if I drink whiskey on the rocks?
~ Do you drink whiskey with a chaser?
~ So the chaser is like a beer you drink with whiskey?
