Student: Hey Miss Baker, can I ask a question?
Teacher: Sure, so Daisy what’s your question?
Student: So, where are you going to go, Miss Baker?
Teacher: Well, I’m going to go to my favourite city, New York

Teacher: Good question. There’s a lot to do in New York, I’m going to visit a museum because I love history.
Student: And where are you going to stay?
Teacher: I’m going to stay in a lovely hotel really near to the park.
Student: And what’s the name of the hotel?
