Transcripts:

Interviewer: Can you tell us the thing you like most in this place?

Interviewee: The thing I liked most in New York was definitely the variety of buildings and monuments. I also enjoyed the parks. They were great. New York is a unique city. It’s like you are in the middle of the world. It’s considered by many to be the economic center of the world. I also liked the people. Some people told me that New Yorkers have a reputation for being unfriendly, but I didn’t notice this. 

Interviewer: Were there any things that you didn’t like?

Interviewee: I think that the downside of my holiday was that there are crowds on the streets every day, almost all day long. Also, sometimes, the bad weather kept us in the house.

Interviewer: How was your accommodation?

Interviewee: My friends live in a big flat. My friend and I shared a bedroom which was very big and comfortable and most of all, we had the perfect view overlooking the ocean. So I must say that we had all the comfort we needed. They even gave us access to a computer for us to check our email or to play on, when we were in the mood and when the weather was bad. 

Interviewer: You said that the people there were fine.

Interviewee: Yes. The people from New York are very kind and now I will tell everybody I know, this. Whenever we needed help on the street because we didn’t know where to go or because we found the map confusing, they always gave us a hand and helped us find our way. 

Interviewer: Did you make any new friends? Have you kept in touch? 

Interviewee: Yes. I made some new friends there. I made friends with my friends’ neighbours. We spent much of our time together and sometimes they were our guides around the city. 

Interviewer: How did you spend your time? Did you participate in any recreational activities? 

Interviewee: During the day we went visiting and walking on the streets for hours. And when the weather was bad, we played a lot of chess. We had the chance to participate in the 78th annual feast of San Gennaro, but we missed the 36th Annual African American Day Parade through Manhattan, and we went to the Richmond County Fair on Staten island, which amazed us in every possible way.
