The twilight hour

It was abalmy Friday evening in July at the end of what had been one of the hottest days of the year’sheatwave . Thanks to the fact that it wassummer time , the sun still hadn’t set. Streaks of red and orange were beginning tospread across the sky. Thetown square was full of peoplestrolling along paths or sitting onbenches , enjoying thegentle evening breeze . Childrennagged their parents to buy them an ice lolly from thecart . Teenage boyslounged against the church wall,eyeing giggly groups of teenage girls. A family was enjoying its supperal fresco on the green. Some of the olderfolk had placed chairs outside their front doors and sat chatting to the neighbours. Smokedrifted across from a back garden, where someone hadfired up the barbie and wasflipping burgers .

Dusk had descended when a woman none of us had seen before crossed the square, her heels click-clacking sharply on thecobblestones . All eyes were fixed on her. Even the teenage boys and the giggly girls had fallen silent. What was a stranger doing in the town at this hour?

PRACTICE

Now try the following exercises to practise talking about sitting outside in the evening.
