    Where can I go? (dialogue part1)

    Hi,

    Is this dialogue ok? Please say if the sentences are acceptable before adding suggestions (Which are really wanted!!!) Thanks Rip

    1 (Policewoman): Excuse me!
    2 (I): Yes, madam? Can I say Madam to a policewoman?
    3) Is that your moped? Can I say : is that moped yours?
    If yes, which one would you choose?
    Would you use "scooter" as
    a synonym for "moped"?

    4) Yes, it is
    5) You can't park there Can I say mustn't instead of can't?
    I used "there" because I said "that"
    moped in sentence 3

    6) Where can I go? Is it possible to say "go" instead of "park"?

    7) You must GO INTO Fleet Street Is it ok? and waht about "you must
    park in Fleet Street





    Thanks. Rip

    Re: Where can I go? (dialogue part1)

    Hi ripley

    As a Brit, but not a teacher:

    1 (Policewoman): Excuse me! OK
    2 (I): Yes, madam? Can I say Madam to a policewoman? OK, yes.
    3) Is that your moped? Can I say : Is that moped yours? Both OK.
    If yes, which one would you choose? Either.
    Would you use "scooter" as a synonym for "moped"?
    No. They are different. a "moped" by definition has pedals, hence the "ped".
    A "scooter" doesn't have pedals: see Vespa Scooters - Scooters

    4) Yes, it is. OK
    5) You can't park there Can I say mustn't instead of can't?
    I would have no problem personally with either.
    I used "there" because I said "that" moped in sentence 3. OK

    6) Where can I go? Is it possible to say "go" instead of "park"? Yes

    7) You must GO INTO Fleet Street Is it ok? and what about "you must
    park in Fleet Street. I would prefer the 2nd sentence

    Hope this helps
