Learn the dialog

Listen to the dialog while reading the text.
Excuse me? I'm trying to find the "Aroma" restaurant. Do you know where it is?
Yes, I do. It's just around the corner. Turn left and then go straight and left again.
Could you repeat that and speak a little bit slower? My English isn't so good.
Of course. Turn left here and then go straight for about 500 meters. Then turn left again and the restaurant will be on your right-hand side.
How long do you think it will take me to get there?
Should be no more than a 10 minute walk.
Ok, thank you so much. I'm here on vacation and I'm having a hard time finding my way around.
No worries, you are welcome!
