First, we will check the points in this lesson. Please repeat after me.
|1.||When trying to delicately answer a question, instead of replying on Yes/No, use “I’m afraid not,” or “I’m afraid so.”|
|2.||Instead of focusing on the negative, find something positive about the situation at hand. For example, if a colleague is disappointed because there is no cafeteria in the building, point out the shops and restaurants near the office.|
|3.||It is more natural to say “I don’t think we should…” than “I think we shouldn’t…”|
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:||Oh! Hello, Kei.|
|A:||Are you looking for something?|
|B:||Yes, I’m looking for the cafeteria.|
|A:||Oh, sorry, Bob. I’m afraid we don’t have a cafeteria.|
|B:||I didn’t realize that.|
|A:||Sorry to disappoint you.|
|B:||I’m wondering where I should eat for lunch.|
|A:||There are some shops and restaurants nearby. See, I don’t think we should have a cafeteria. It gives us the chance to go out and get some fresh air.|
|B:||Yeah, I see your point. Thanks!|
Now, let’s review some words and expressions from part B_2.
(Please review the mispronounced words and expressions from part B_2.)
Now, please answer the following questions. I will check if your sentences are complete and if the grammar is correct.
|1.||Do you have a cafeteria at work?|
|2.||If not, where do you usually eat your lunch?|
|3.||Do you ever bring your lunch to work? Why or why not?|
Now, let’s review your answers.
(Please review your student’s answers by sending the correct answers in complete sentences. After that, ask your student to read aloud his or her corrected answers.)
Let’s do a role play with the given situations.
It is your first day at work and you are looking for the cafeteria. Ask a colleague where it is. He/She will tell you that there is no cafeteria in your office. Act disappointed.
(Your tutor will pretend to be your colleague.)
– I’m looking for~
– I didn’t realize that.
