After one rather long day of flying our companies Gulfstream III from DAB (Daytona Beach) to ATL (Atlanta) to CRP (Corpus Christy) with a return flight to DAB I had given the last leg to my First Officer. She was from France, and a very likable character who still had a little problem with the english lang. mainly the way we phrased things.
The conversation between ATC and our plane went like this:

ATC: 400LH reduce speed to 220 knots and decend to 2,000. Contact Daytona App. on 125.7 good day.

US. Daytona App.125.7, out of 10 for 2

US. Daytona App. 400LH with you out of 10 for 2

DAB App. Roger 400LH fly 050 deg, decend and maintain 2,000 expect ILS 7L.

US. Roger DAB. (at this time we both had the airport insight and with very good VFR weather prevailing decided to cancel IFR and take the visual app. and traffic was almost nonexistant.)

US. DAB App. 400LH would like to cancel IFR at this time and take the visual.

DAB APP. roger 400LH IFR canceled, Squawk VFR, fly 065 deg for straight in app. runway 7L, contact tower on 120.7 (My F/O changes freq. and calls DAB TWR)

US. Daytona tower Gulfstream 400LH with you on the visual straight in for 7L

DAB TWR. roger 400LH cleared to land runway 7L say your intentions?

(Puzzled she looked at me for just a few seconds and was just about to respond when the controller came back with the same request.)

DAB TWR. 400LH please say your intentions ma'am?

(Still puzzled, she replied confidently to the controlers query) US. Daytona tower, I would like to be an airline pilot.

It had indeed been a long day...
