STEVEN: We should take our coworkers out to celebrate this weekend.
ALBERT: Yes, the project was a big success.
Now that it's finished, I think we should have a party.
STEVEN: But I'm not sure what to do.
We could invite them all to dinner at the Red Lobster, and then come here for drinks.
ALBERT: This place?
STEVEN: Yes, why not? This is one of the best pubs in the neighborhood.
A lot of the employees live around here. So it would be convenient.
ALBERT: I have a suggestion. Why don't we go to a KTV and sing?
STEVEN: A KTV? Are you serious?
ALBERT: Yes, why not? Don't you like KTVs?
STEVEN: I don't know. I never went to one.
ALBERT: Never? Really? I'm surprised.
STEVEN: Why should you be?
Many Americans have never gone to a KTV. It's not an American thing to do.
ALBERT: But there are a lot of KTVs in town. There's one just two blocks from here.
STEVEN: That's because there are a lot of Asian immigrants here.
All their customers are Asians. Americans don't usually go out to sing with their friends.
ALBERT: I suppose.
It's true that when I go to a KTV here in town, there are almost no Westerners.
ALBERT: But you know, Steven--half of the employees in our company are from Japan.
So going to a KTV would be fun for them.
STEVEN: But what about the other employees?
ALBERT: Well, I think you would have a good time too.
We'd have to teach you, of course.
STEVEN: Do they have English songs there?
ALBERT: Of course. They have a lot of English songs.
STEVEN: Well, maybe we should suggest it to the office tomorrow. I'm willing to try.
We Japanese working in America always have to learn about American culture.
It would be good to introduce something Japanese to you.
STEVEN: Let's give it a try then.
