There are four Interviews in this lesson, including David & Alan, Robert and Chris, Sybil, and Chris & Donna & Millie (that's Millie in the picture on the left).

Chris, Donna, and Millie work together. Donna's the boss. They seem to break the tension of the office during this interview on the street.

What do they do? What does she do? This lesson introduces us to new verbs in a form which express generalities and habits, such as going to work everyday!

This lesson includes review of a polite way to ask someone to introduce a friend, as well as people introducing themselves.
