Episode 12. The day after tomorrow
ANNE and SARAH plan a meeting.
SARAH is working at her computer. ANNE knocks at the open door.
SARAH : Come in Anne.
ANNE : Good morning!
SARAH : Good morning. Are you feeling better today?
ANNE : Yes thank you.
SARAH : What’s on the agenda?
ANNE : I’m thinking about this trip to the wineries. I want to meet your main suppliers and talk to them about the market.
SARAH :Great. They’ve been dying to meet you. When do you want to go?
ANNE : As soon as possible. How about tomorrow?
SARAH :I can’t tomorrow. I’ve got some other appointments. What about the day after tomorrow?
ANNE :Yes, that’s good. It’s Monday today, so that will be Wednesday. What date is that?
SARAH : The fifth of November.
ANNE: Okay. What time shall we meet?
SARAH: I’ll pick you up at nine o-clock.
ANNE :Good. How many wineries do you think we’ll be able to see?
SARAH: I’m not sure, four or five. Definitely our biggest suppliers, and maybe a few surprises.
ANNE: I can’t wait. Will it take all day?
SARAH: Most of the day. I’ll start ringing now, and let them know we have a very important client all the way from Singapore.
ANNE: Thankyou. I’m looking forward to it.
SARAH: Me too.

||Except for a half and a quarter the
numbers are the same as the numbers we use for dates and the
things, but we always say an or a
one before them:|
an eighth / one eighth / 1/8
a sixteenth / one sixteenth / 1/16
a twentieth / one twentieth / 1/20
We say an eighth because eighth begins with a vowel sound.
We will explain how to use an and a in episode 14.
