Correction :

Dialogue : AMERICAN PARTNERS

Man :

Hey Jane ! I have just booked a table for four tonight at our favorite restaurant “Ruby Blue Bar” for our business lunch with our rich american partners.

Would that be okay ?

Woman : If I were you, I would book a table at the sumptuous “Epicure” for them to try some typical french dishes and be in a delightful environment.

Man : It’s very expensive and I thought that they may not enjoy French food.

Woman :

Yes, I know but you have to keep in mind that this partnership is very important for us and that we can’t afford losing such a contract.

They travel a lot around the world and I pretty sure that they are open to different types of food.

We need to invest as much money as needed to gain their confidences.

Man : you’re right, I’ll cancel my booking.
