    Naomi: Wales.

    Dai: Wales, OK, and how old are you now?

    Naomi: I’m eleven.

    Dai: Eleven. OK, so that means you are in…what would that be, junior school? secondary school?

    Naomi: Junior school.

    Dai: Junior school. OK. And so what grade is that in junior school.

    Naomi: Six.

    Dai: Oh, grade six, OK. So tell me about your school. What kind of subjects do you study in junior school.

    Dai: Oh twelve o’clock, for how long?

    Naomi: For an hour.

    Dai: Oh an hour? Oh nice! And then what do you do for lunch in Wales? Do they have like a cafeteria where they cook for you?

    Naomi: Yeah, they have that and you can bring sandwiches.

    Dai: You can bring your own sandwiches instead?

    Naomi: Yeah.

    Dai: OK. What do you do?

    Naomi: I normally bring sandwiches.

    Dai: OK. Is that because the dinner’s are no good, or…?

    Naomi: They’re OK but I don’t really like them as much as sandwiches.

    Dai: And what kind of food do they serve up in the canteen?

    Naomi: They serve roast dinners and…

    Dai: Roast dinners? What’s a roast dinner?

    Naomi: It’s like a meat and vegetables.

    Dai: OK. It sounds very simple.

    Naomi: Yeah, and pizza and chips and ham and all sorts of stuff.

    Dai: Oh OK, it sounds good. And do they give you lots of homework?

    Naomi: No.

    Dai: Oh really?

    Naomi: No.

    Dai: Oh that’s good to hear. So what’s your favorite subject then in junior school?

    Naomi: Art.

    Dai: OK, why is that?

    Naomi: I don’t know, I just like painting and drawing.

    Dai: And then, what’s the subject that you find most boring?

    Naomi: Maths.

    Dai: Maths? Oh really? Yeah, I’m not a big fan of Maths. So I guess if you’re in grade six you’ll be going on to your next school soon?

    Naomi: Yeah, secondary school.

    Dai: OK, and are you looking forward to that.

    Naomi: Yeah.

    Dai: OK, it was very nice talking to you and good luck in your next school.
