Dialogue 1

Liam: Excuse me, do you know the nearest post office?
Ella: Yes, it’s on this street. Just keep walking straight for three blocks and then turn right at the corner.
Liam: Okay, great. I got lost and wasn’t sure which way to go.
Ella: No problem. Happens to all of us sometimes.
Liam: Thank you so much! I appreciate it.
Ella: You’re welcome. Is there anything else I can help with?
Liam: Actually, yes. Could you tell me how to get to the train station from here?
Ella: Sure. Walk back to that main road and turn left. Keep walking until you see a big sign saying “train station” on your right.
Liam: Got it. Thanks again!
Ella: Not a problem. Have a good day!

Dialogue 2

Molly: Excuse me, can you help me? I’m a bit lost. Do you know where the nearest post office is?
Tom: Yes, it’s just around the corner.
Molly: Oh great! Thanks so much. And do you know how to get to the train station from here?

Molly: Thanks very much. I appreciate it.
Tom: No problem at all. Is there anything else you need help with?

Molly: Thank you again. You’ve been such a big help!
Tom: Anytime. Don’t hesitate to ask if you need more directions or information.
