Betty - Bellissimo!
Sara  - What did you say?

It means "very beautiful" in Italian.

Betty  - You are beautiful, and Italy is beautiful.
I'm very excited for you. What a great opportunity.
Sara  - Thanks, Betty. But I'm not sure if I'm going yet.
Betty  - You should. It's the chance of a lifetime!
Sara  - Wait a minute. How did you hear about it?
I didn't tell you.
Betty  - Good news travels fast!

Betty  - I have an idea.
Sara  - What is it?
Betty  - While you're in Italy, you can be our
 foreign correspondent for the newspaper!

Betty - You can write an article about the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Sara  - What is so funny?
Betty  - When I was a kid,
I thought it was the Leaning Tower of Pizza.
Sara  - I did too!
Betty  - You're so lucky! When you go abroad,
you can travel to different cities and try different foods.
Sara  - You mean 'if' I go. And I would have to focus on studying.
Betty  - You are a good student.
Sara  - But I don't know if I'll be a good foreign student.
Betty  - You will be!
And you'll be a great foreign correpondent.
Sara  - Now I just have to decide if I'm going or not.
