Lesson 23 – The Amusement Park
Polly: What time are we meeting David and Karen tomorrow?
Jeff: We’re meeting at 9am. It is a one hour drive to the amusement park and we have to pick up one more person.
Polly: Who are we picking up?
Jeff: A guy who works with David. His name is James. I’ve not met him but David says that he’s good fun.
Polly: I am looking forward to going on some roller coaster rides. I haven’t been on one for years. What’s your favourite ride?
Jeff: I quite like the waltzers and the nemesis. Any rides that throw you around really. I’m not fond of ghost trains though.
Polly: Why don’t you like ghost trains? Are you scared of them?
Jeff: No, I’m not scared of them. They are too slow and the effects are awful. I would rather spend my time waiting in a queue for a big fast ride than go on a ghost train.
Polly: I once went into a horror house.
Jeff: What is a horror house?
Polly: It’s like a fun house, you walk around. But instead of moving stairs and ball pools there are people dressed up as characters from horror films.
Jeff: What do they do?
Polly: They jump out at you, they chase you. You will be walking down a dark corridor with eerie music playing and someone will touch your head or something will brush past your legs.
Jeff: That does sound scary. I hope that they have one of those at the amusement park!

In the case of a person, is used the interrogative pronoun who. Let’s take a look at building sentences using this form:
Jeff saw Polly.
Subject Verb Object
If you want to ask who Jeff saw (we are asking about the object = Polly), the question becomes:
Who did Jeff see?
However, if we ask: Who saw Polly? (we ask for the subject = Jeff), the structure is:
Who + Verbo + Objeto… ?
Who saw Polly?
Interrogatives with prepositions

Interrogative pronoun with things
When we talk about things, we use the interrogative pronoun What.
What‘s the time?
What‘s your favourite colour?
The functions for what are the same as for who.
Jeff gave a present.
Subject Verb Object
We could ask:
What did Jeff give?
Object Subject Verb
It is not very common for « what » to be the subject of a sentence. It usually occurs in phrases such as:
What is it like?
What is + subject in 3rd person of the singular + like?
With what is it like? You will see that the construction of a phrase does not use like as a verb, but as a preposition:
What’s the new cinema like?
What’s Karen like?
She’s very talented.
As you can see in the examples, this construction can be applied to both people and objects.
What are Italian people like?
They are very hospitable.
What are they like?
They are kind.
