I want to cook dinner. Oh! Hmmm. Is there a supermarket near here?

Marsha knows. Marsha's work number is 555-8986.

MAN: Hello.

ANNA: Hello. Is this Marsha? It is Anna.

MAN: I am sorry. You have the wrong number.

ANNA: Oh. Is this 555-8986?

MAN: No. This is 555-8689.

MAN: Okay. 'Bye.

ANNA: One more time. 555-8986. Please be Marsha.

MARSHA: Hello. This is Marsha.

ANNA: Yes, Marsha. I want to cook dinner.

MARSHA: Excuse me? Anna? Is that you?

Грамматика третьего урока:  местоимения времени here there
В этом уроке мы продолжаем закреплять изменение глагола to be по лицам и встречаем конструкцию We are  и ее сокращенную форму We're. Ее употребляет Анна, рассказывая, что она живет с Маршей, они соседи по квартире  - We're roommate. 
И, наконец, мы встречаем местоимения места - here и there. Дословно они переводятся - здесь и там. Но по смыслу, можно перевести просто как:
ANNA: Oh, yes. I am here! - Да, это я.

MARSHA: Good. You are there. - Хорошо, это ты. 
До встречи на следующем уроке!
