Hi

Is this dialogue fully natural? Any other suggestions please?

A - But you must build a small swimming pool in your new house. It's really my wish that the children have an indoor swimming pool.

B - Thanks a lot for the good wishes, but we must keep our budget in mind too.

Thanks,

Tom

This doesn't seem natural to me at all. What gives person A the right to say 'You must . . .' and 'It's really my wish that . . . '?


B -Thanks a lot for the good wishes . . . I don't see any good wishes. Do you perhaps mean 'good suggestions'?

Thanks, Clive.

Is it OK now?

A - But I think you should build a small swimming pool in your new house. I would really want the children to have their own swimming pool.

B - Thanks a lot for the good suggestion, but we must keep our budget in mind too.

A - But I think you should build a small swimming pool in your new house. This still seems like an arrogant remark.


I would really want What gives A the right to say this?

Thank you, Clive.

It's the excited mother talking to her married daughter. The daughter is shifting into her own house after years of living in a rented flat.

Cold you please help me make it sound natural?

A - But I think you should build a little swimming pool in your new house! That'd be lovely for the children!

B - Thanks a lot for the great suggestion, but we can't afford it, mother.

Tom, you may not realize that only very, very rich people can build an indoor pool in their house.
