A: Hello. My name's Maggie. What's your name?

B: My name is Jean-Jacques. Nice to meet you, Maggie.

A: And you. Where are you from, Jean-Jacques?

B: I'm French. I live in Paris - Paris, as you say in English - but I'm from the south, from Provence. Do you know the south of France?

A: Yes, I do. It's beautiful!

B: It's true, it is! And you, Maggie, where are you from?

A: I'm from Scotland.

B: Oh, really! I've never been there, but I'd like to. It's a beautiful country, isn't it?

A: Very! Lots of mountains and lakes. What do you do in France, Jean-Jacques?

B: I'm an architect. I design very expensive houses for very rich people.
