    Arrow State or activity verbs

    Interviewer (I)Guide (G)

    Are bolded verbs - correct?

    I: Do you like your job?
    G: Oh, eys. I love it. I enjoy meeting new people.
    I: What are you thinking of the tourists who come to Nepal?
    G: Some of them don't know much about mountains and want to see as much as possible. Right now, I am working for a group of Austrian trekkers. They understand all about trekking and I'm sure they enjoy themselves. That's great because it means that the trek is good fun for me, too.
    I: How the tourists differs from local people?
    G: Well, most of them smell funny, not like us. Really! They eat different food and don't dress like us. My Austrians, for example, drink coffee for breakfast - it doesn't taste too good to me but they love it.

    Thank you very much.
