Jack vuole andare al mare, il tempo è sereno e vuole nuotare nel mare.

Jack wants to go to the beach, the weather is sunny and he wants to swim in the sea.

Jack parla con il suo amico e chiede se anche lui vuole andare al mare.

Jack speaks to his friend to ask if he wants to go to the beach also.

“Ciao Chris,” dice Jack, “oggi fa molto sereno, vuoi andare al mare con me? Possiamo nuotare e comprare del gelato.”

"Hi Chris," Jack says, "today it is very sunny, so do you want to go to the beach with me? We can swim in the sea, and buy ice cream."

“Che bella idea!” risponde Chris, “Amo il mare, amo nuotare, e amo il gelato, è un’idea perfetta!”

"That is a great idea," Chris replies, "I love the beach, I love to swim, and I love ice-cream, this is a perfect idea!"

“Perfetto, andiamo!” risponde Jack.

"That is great, let's go now," Jack replies.

Jack e Chris vanno al mare, per quattro ore dormono sulla spiaggia e nuotano nel mare.

Jack and Chris go to the beach, for four hours they sleep on the sand and swim in the sea.

Poco dopo sono stanchi e vogliono andare a casa.

Soon, they are tired and want to go home.

Ma prima di andare a casa si fermano per comprare del gelato.

But before they go home, they stop to buy ice cream.

“Non mangiare troppo gelato, Chris, starai male” dice Jack.

"Don't eat too much ice cream, Chris, you will be sick," Jack says.

“È troppo tardi” risponde Chris “mi sento male. Dobbiamo andare a casa.”

"It is too late," Chris replies, "I feel sick, I need to go home."

“Possiamo andare a casa ora, forse la prossima volta mangerai solo un gelato invece di tre” esclama Jack.

"We can go home now, maybe next time you will only eat one ice cream instead of three!" Jack exclaims.
