Lesson 59: English conversation during railway journey

Maria: See, the train has come.
Philip: It's not crowded.

Maria: Let's get in fast.
Philip: These two berths are reserved for us.

Alex: Make yourselves comfortable. Nobody else has to come.
Maria: Shall we put this trunk up there on the luggage rack.

Philip: Ya.
Maria: Do you mind if I put it there?

Alex: Nope.
Maria: It's very hot in here. Would you mind if I opened the window?

Alex: That'd be fine. I've been thinking of doing that.
Maria: I have a cramp and its tough for me to climb up, will you swap berths with me?

Alex: No problem. But I can't sleep with these lights on Would you mind switching them off when you are ready to sleep.

Maria: I will do it in five minutes' time.
