Решение от Андрей Григорьев
You: Hey, I can't believe it's our last year in secondary school! We should start thinking about our End-of-year Celebration.
Friend: Absolutely! It's a big milestone. What do you think we should do?
You: Well, we have a few options. We could have a dinner in a nice restaurant, host a classroom party, go on a one-day excursion, or have an evening at a disco. What are your initial thoughts?
Friend: Hmm, those all sound interesting. Let's break them down. A restaurant would be classy, but it might limit the number of people we can invite. A classroom party is more inclusive, but it might not feel special enough for our final year. A one-day excursion could be fun, but it might be tricky to organize. An evening at a disco sounds exciting, but not everyone may enjoy that.
You: Great points. I agree that each option has its pros and cons. For the restaurant, we could make it a more intimate gathering with our closest friends. The classroom party could be a great way to involve everyone and keep it budget-friendly. If we plan a one-day excursion, it should be somewhere fun and not too far away. And for the disco, we can make it optional for those who want to dance the night away.
Friend: I like the idea of making the restaurant dinner a more exclusive event for our closest friends. And having a classroom party would be inclusive. But what do you think about combining the two? We could start with a classroom party and then head to a nice restaurant for dinner afterward.
You: That's a fantastic idea! It gives everyone a chance to celebrate together and then lets those who want a more formal setting continue the night. We can even take suggestions from our classmates about where they'd like to go.
Friend: Perfect! Let's do it. I'll start gathering suggestions from our classmates, and we can work on planning the details together.
You: Sounds like a plan. It's going to be an unforgettable End-of-year Celebration!
