Neste diálogo, a família vai à cidade de Rehoboth Beach em Delaware e conheça a história da área e por que é tão popular agora.

Paul: Rehoboth Beach is a popular vacation destination for people in the region.
Claudine: I can understand why people come here. I love the different water sports we can do.
Sam: Yes, I can’t wait to go kayaking.
Gina: And the wooden boardwalk is great. I love beach towns with long boardwalks.
Paul: This area has a great history as well. It’s likely that the area was inhabited by humans over 12,000 years ago.
