IF I WERE A MILLIONAIRE

Orly Borges Personal Collection

If I were a
millionaire

 
   

Listen to a man interviewing a little girl about what she would do if she were a millonaire. Listen the things she says she would spend her money on. This audio text also means good practice for the conditional tense.

LITTLE GIRL:

If I became a millionaire I'd first of all buy my mummy and daddy a big house and a swimming pool. And then I'd get a car for my brother. He's only four but he likes cars.

MAN:

Would it be a sports car?

LITTLE GIRL:

No, 'cos he can't drive yet. It would be a plastic one, not a real one. It has to fit in the garden as he's too young to drive on the road.

MAN:

Of course, I didn't think of that. And what about you?

LITTLE GIRL:

I will buy a big cage and keep hamsters in it.

MAN:

How many?

LITTLE GIRL:

At least ten. I like hamsters and cats and dogs. And then I'd buy some nuts for them. The hamsters, I mean.

MAN:

And would there be any money left after that?

LITTLE GIRL:

Yes, a bit.

MAN:

And would you save that for when you're older?

LITTLE GIRL:

No. I would spend it next week on, on ...

MAN:

On another pet?

LITTLE GIRL:

No, I think ten hamsters is a lot so I'd pay for a taxi.

MAN:

A taxi?

LITTLE GIRL:

Yes and then my mummy doesn't have to take me to school in the rain any more.

MAN:

I see. You are a kind little girl.
