I can answer all of them, I think it's hard for me and it took time to answer but I love to speak with Gemma! I hope they can have a picnic at the other day when the sun got dark. And I hope Jack could feel well!
I've made one too:
Gemma: It's great to have a picnic!
Jack/me:Yes.
Gemma: Do you wants some strawberry cake?
Jack/me: No thanks...
Gemma: Strawberry cake is your favourite!Why you don't eat it?
Jack/me: I'm not feeling well today. Maybe I can eat it when I feel better. Thanks.
Gemma:Oh! Do you need anything?
Jack/me: Urgh, no thanks, Gemma. You are such a kind person!
Gemma: Thanks.
Gemma: Today is hot!
Jack/me: Yes.
Gemma: Let's go home. We can go picnic next time when you feel better, Jack.
Jack/me: Ok!

Why
1 question
there is no article in the phrase "there's cheese and tomato or egg".
2 question
Can we say a tomato sandwich or an egg sandwich?

It's a style of talking of native English speaker.
Yes, you can use that but that will not look so smart.

Hi Kamil_shams,

 

Gemma has got some sandwiches. There are cheese and tomato [sandwiches] or egg [sandwiches].

 

Sometimes we use there's even when it refers to more than one. So Gemma says There's cheese and tomato [sandwiches] or egg [sandwiches].

 

Yes, you can say a tomato sandwich or an egg sandwich :-)

 

Look at the comment below from Jo for more help!

I have a question. In the first dialogue in Gemma's second comment, she says "there’s cheese and tomato or egg." but in the second dialogue, she is saying "there are cheese and tomato or egg." Which is true??

Hi Daiichi,
 
Well noticed! Usually is/are agrees with the noun, so 'There are cheese and tomato or egg [sandwiches]' is correct. But in speaking and in some informal writing, we sometimes use 'there’s' even when it refers to more than one. That means 'There's cheese and tomato or egg [sandwiches]' is also correct in informal situations, but it would be incorrect in formal writing or in an exam.
 
If you would like to read more about 'There is', 'there’s' and 'there are', have a look at this page:
 
I hope that helps!
 
Best wishes,
Jo (LearnEnglish Teens team)

This video is interesting. I can answer some Gemma's question:
- Do you want another sandwich?
- What about some chocolate cake?
- What's wrong?
- Do you want some sun cream?
