As it is saying don’t go   into tea with them, language formal it does not make. Both James and Georgie are speaking      informaly towards each other. “It’s quite unviable.” lines : 5-10 . They are again using friendly language and contractions. Than it becomes a little more friendly and humorous . “and you become a little more faun-ey ”.line 29 .now they are making jokes with each other and becoming more friendly . “he’s already growing a beard ? see”. Line 34-35. It’s becoming more humorous as Georgie is making some jokes. “no , he’s too scruffy ”. here it’s quite informal.
