Dialogue 25 – Shopping

  • Saleslady: Can I help you?
  • Gloria: Yes, I’m looking for a pair of white gloves. I think I wear size six.
  • Saleslady: The white gloves are on this counter. Let’s see… here’s  a size six. These are very nice, and they’re washable, too.
  • Gloria: Oh, I’ll try them on. Hmmm… they seem to fit. How much are they?
  • Saleslady: Five dollars.
  • Gloria: All right. I’ll take them.
  • Saleslady: That’ll be five­ twenty with the tax.

Dialogue 26 – Transportation

(Street noise)

  • Joyce: Shall we take a taxi or a bus to the meeting?
  • Bill: We’d better take a bus. It’s almost impossible to find a taxi during rush hour.
  • Joyce: Isn’t that a bus stop over there?
  • Bill: Yes… Oh, oh! There’s a bus now. We’ll have to run to catch it.
  • Joyce: 0.K.… Oh, no! We just missed it.
  • Bill: Never mind. There’ll be another one in ten minutes.

Dialogue 27 – Comparing

  • Jean: I think this material is much prettier than that, don’t you?
  • Lois: Well, I don’t know. I like them both. Why do you like that one better?
  • Jean: Well, the design is more interesting, and the colors are brighter. And it’s not as expensive, either.
  • Lois: Oh, I see what you mean. And besides, these colors are more becoming to you.
  • Jean: Do you really think so? I’ll buy it, then.

PART 2 — DIRECTIONS: Watch, read-along, and pronounce with the video below a minimum of 2-3 times. After you finish, let us know what you learned via the comments section below.

  1. Hello, good afternoom.
    Here there are some sound where I’m paying attention:
    “They’re”, in “and they’re washable, too”.
    “Them on”, in “I’ll try them on”.
    “That’ll”, in “That’ll be five dollars”.
    “There’ll”, in “There’ll be another one in ten minutes”.
    I can repeat and learn these sounds with the practice.
    Thanks,
    Nelson from Vzla.

      1. Hello!

        For shopping:
        – I’m looking for a pair of white gloves. I think I wear size six. How much are they? All right. I’ll take them.

        For transportation:
        – We’d better take a bus. It’s almost impossible to find a taxi during rush hour. We’ll have to run to catch it. Never mind. There ‘ll be another one in ten minutes.

        For comparing:
        I think this material is much prettier than that, don’t you?
        Why do you like that one better?
        Well, the design is more interesting, and the colors are brighter. And it’s not as expensive, either.
        Oh, I see what you mean. And besides, these colors are more becoming to you.

        I got more grammar through those three dialogues. Thank you so much.
