First, we will check the points in this lesson. Please repeat after me.
|1.||It’s important to learn how to greet and talk to your colleagues at the beginning of the day, or during break times. This helps the staff feel like a cohesive unit and friendly towards one another.|
|2.||When trying to start conversations naturally, use “～, isn’t it?” and “looks like～.”|
We will read aloud the dialogue below. Once we are done, we will switch roles and read aloud the dialogue again. I will check your pronunciation and intonation.
(Please send the mispronounced words and expressions to your student.)
|B:||Hello, Kei. It sure is cold out today, isn’t it?|
|A:||Yes, very cold. It looks like it might snow.|
|B:||It could very well snow, just in time for Christmas, too!|
|A:||So did you see the news about the big accident at the factory this morning?|
|B:||Yes, I caught some of that news story. What happened exactly?|
|A:||I’m not sure, but I hope everyone will be okay.|
|A:||Yeah, me too.|
Now, let’s review some words and expressions from part B_2.
