READING

Catherine and Saori are going to a casino in Macau that Catherine’s father owns. He sent Catherine an email about it.

Catherine,

How are you? I hope you and your friend enjoy your visit at the casino. Be sure to try some of the games there. Go play blackjack and baccarat, but don’t gamble too much! Also, you should go see a show with your friend. You can ask the staff for VIP tickets to any of the shows. I highly recommend the new magic show.

Love,
Dad

Read the email. Then, talk to your friend about it.

Today's grammar tip

  • go and (verb)

Hi!

I hope you’re enjoying Macau. I had a lot of fun there last year. I went and saw a show at the Star Casino Palace. It was wonderful! You can still see it now. It’s called Luna.

You should go play some games at the casino too. I recommend roulette or baccarat.

Also, the food in Macau is great! You should go and eat at the buffet at the World Continents Restaurant. They have dishes from all around the world.

Have fun!
