Canterbury Street Questions - Last Update : October 25th 2017

1 - Polite Interview of local people in the street.

Ask people in the street these questions. Be polite. Introduce yourself by saying "Excuse me, we are students from Italy and we have come to learn English. Would you mind if we ask you a few questions?"
Take turns to ask the questions. Try to respond to the answers you are given. Don't spend too much time with one person. Be polite and say thankyou, then move on to another person for more questions. For example
Student: Do you live close to Canterbury?
Person in the street: No, I have come from Europe. Student: Where are you from? .....

After the questions say "Thank you so much for your time. Good bye."
