    Práctica 9 (§9)

    Traducción al inglés
    L: This Saturday I want to do something different. J: I don't understand, you always prefer to sleep. L: You think that, but you always go to bed after we have lunch and sleep all afternoon. J: Ha, ha. Well, it's just that I start my day very early and most of the time we go to bed too late. L: Well, I repeat: This Saturday can be different. We can go to the movies, for example. J: On Saturday I can't go because I start my new yoga classes from two to five in the afternoon. L: Oh, yes, now I remember, but don't you come back at six? Then we have some time in the evening. J: Yes, possibly... If I don't miss the bus, ha, ha. L: Perfect. Then you arrive, we eat, and then we go out. J: All right, I approve the idea, but I ask you a favor: You choose (pick) the movie. L: No, we choose it together, as usual. On Saturday morning I get the ticket on the web. J: Ok, good, we'll see what we find. How much does the movie ticket cost? L: I don't remember, does it matter?
