Part 1: Directions: Watch the video, read the text below, then translate the text in your primary language and read it again.

Hello English Learners! How do you start a conversation? Usually, conversations start with a greeting. Today’s conversation topic is “Greetings.” Imagine you’re traveling in the United States of America and you greet many people. What would you say? What would others say? Here are a few suggestions:
— You’re at a gas station and need to pay for gas. How would you greet the gas station attendant? How would the attendant respond?
— You’re meeting a friend for lunch. How would you greet your friend? How would your friend respond?
— You’re at a party, and someone introduces you to someone else. How would you greet that person? How would that person respond?
Greeting before asking is common courtesy. When you greet people properly, you are more likely to start a positive, long-lasting English conversation.

Part 2: Directions: Watch the video, read the text below, then translate the text in your primary language and read it again.

Hi English Learners. How are you today. How do you usually communicate in the morning with others? Today’s conversation topic is “Early in the Morning”. Who do you usually speak with early in the morning? What do you usually talk about? Here are a few suggestions:
— It’s early in the morning and you’re in line at a local Starbucks to get your morning coffee and croissant. How would you greet the barista? How would the barista respond?
— You just woke up and walked into the kitchen. Your father is sitting down, drinking coffee and reading a newspaper. How would you greet your father? How would he respond?
— You’re staying at a fancy hotel and wake up early morning. You want to ask the hotel clerk where is the exercise room. How would you ask the hotel clerk? What would the hotel clerk say?
Initiating a conversation during the early morning starts with a greeting. Knowing how to start a conversation in different situations during early morning hours is important.

Part 3: Directions: Watch the video, read the text below, then translate the text in your primary language and read it again. Finally, add a comment about what you learned from Parts 1, 2, and 3 in the comments section below.

Hello, English Learners! Sometimes we run out of food and we need to go shopping. Sometimes our car is out of gas, and we need to fill it up with gas. These are examples of daily needs. Imagine having conversations about daily needs. What would you say? What would others say? Here are a few examples:
— You’re driving down the street, and hear one of your tires explode. Luckily, you’re in front of a tire shop and you drive up to the service bay. What do you say to the tire shop mechanic? What does the mechanic say to you?
— You’re at home, and check your refrigerator. You’re shocked to see that your refrigerator is empty. What would you tell your family? What would your family tell you?
— You ran out of shampoo and went to the supermarket to buy your favorite brand. Unfortunately, you can’t find the shampoo you’re looking for. What would you say to the supermarket stocking clerk? What would the clerk say to you?
It always helps to make a shopping list of what you need to buy, so that you don’t run out of what you need. What are some things that you need to buy?

    My father hugs me and told me, I’m proud of you.
