Possible answers:

The teacher wished all the students a very good evening.  He told us that it was nearly nine o’clock and we’d to go out. He said that he had been given the job of looking after a gentleman from the The Free People’s Republic of Zangonia and teaching him English. He told us that now he was completely drunk. He said that people from his country don’t/didn’t drink alcohol. He said that when he woke up, we would be in trouble. He told us that his father is/was Raji Fred one of the most powerful, rich businessmen in the world. He said that he plays/played golf with George Bush and is/was best friends with the Queen. He said that this student is supposed to be getting married to Lady Sara Winthorpe, the Queen’s niece. He asked us what we were going to do with him. He said that we had to have a good time in the name of diplomatic relations.

Ahmet suggested that we keep him drunk and tell him that he was suffering from the worst case of jetlag ever recorded. He said that when he got back to his own country, he would only remember having had a good time.

The teacher said that it was a fantastic idea. He told us not to let him sober up. He said that if anybody saw him sobering up, that we should give him another drink. He told us to tell him that it was a Traditional English Refreshment. He shouted at Ali to wake up, and asked him how is that terrible jet-lag problem was.

Ali asked him what he had said, hiccupped and moaned about his head. Anja told him (that) he was suffering from the worst case of jetlag that she had ever known in medical history. She said that there was only one good cure. She ordered someone get him some more Traditional English Refreshment quickly.

Ahmet said it was a disaster, saying that there was no Traditional English Refreshment left.

The teacher implored us to come on. He said that we had to get over to the Royal Revue Strip Club ASAP.

Sophie suggested getting a taxi. Teacher said that they are too expensive, and too slow. He said that we might as well take the bus and underground train. He asked Chris how we were going to get there.


Chris said that first we’d head for the centre, getting on a bus. He told us to get off at King’s Cross, to go fifty metres down the road and to hop on the underground. He said that we’d get off at Leicester Square and look for the correct way-out. He said that he always got mixed up working out which way to get out of that station. He said we’d make for Soho going down Wardour Street, and cross over Shaftesbury Avenue, turning off down a little alley and ending up in the heart of Soho. He said that we could wake up Ali and talk him into forking out for a taxi.
