Nick: "Well, first, I (to meet) Karen at the train station at 4:30 p.m.. After that, we (to eat) with her parents at 7 p.m.."

Mike: "Wow, it sounds like you have a busy evening ahead of you!"
Nick: "How about you?"

Mike: "Oh, after school, I (to walk) home and then I (to do) my homework. I haven't made any arrangements so I'll see what I feel like doing."
Nick: "Well, I'm really excited, because I (to tell) Karen that we (to fly) to Jamaica in December! I bought the tickets yesterday! Everything is arranged. We (to land) in Kingston, and we (to stay) at a hotel right on the beach. It (to be) amazing!

Mike: "Lucky you! I haven't arranged anything yet, but I also have some plans. I (to sail) to Jamaica someday too, but I have to learn to sail first. During my next vacation, I (to learn) Spanish. That way it'll be easier to travel through Latin America."
Nick: (you / to take / ?) Spanish lessons or (you / to learn / ?) with a book?

Mike: "I (to take) lessons, but I haven't chosen which school I want to go to yet."
Nick: "Good for you! I think we should hurry up and go to the station now because the weather is getting worse and it looks like it (to rain) soon!"

Mike: "You're right. Let's go!"
