Welcome to Year 1, Week 41, Lesson 1.41.3. Today we will work on your English listening, conversation and reading skills. We begin with a dialogue-related Conversation Topic for English Learners to help with listening and reading comprehension. Then, we continue with Dialogue 19 from our English course, American English Conversations 3. Designed for beginners, each dialogue helps English Learners improve their comprehension and communication skills. You’re encouraged to read along and pronounce together with the video below. Once you finish, don’t forget to share what you’ve learned via the comments section below.

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

Most people depend on transportation to go to work, go to school, go shopping, or go on vacation. Today’s conversation topic is “Transportation”. Imagine you’re in an English speaking country where you need to have conversations about transportation. What would you do? What would you say? What would others say to you? Here are a few suggestions:
— You’re trying to get on a public bus, but you need to pay your bus fare first. What would you say to the bus driver? What would the bus driver say to you?
— You’re on a train on your vacation. You’re admiring the views and share your thoughts with others in your cabin. What would you say? What would the other travelers say?
— Your car doesn’t start and you have a big job interview in one hour. You call a taxi company. What would you say? What would the taxi company receptionist say?
Since so many of us have to travel large distances, we all need dependable transportation. What modes of transportation do you use?

PART 2 — DIRECTIONS: Read the dialogue below in English, then translate it and read it in your primary language.

Dialog 19: Transportation

  • Joyce:  Should we take a taxi or a bus to the mall?
  • Bill:       Let’s take a bus. It’s impossible to get a taxi during rush hour.
  • Joyce:  Isn’t that a bus stop over there?
  • Bill:       Yes … Oh! There’s a bus now. We’ll have to run to catch it.
  • Joyce:  Oh, no! We just missed it.
  • Bill:       No problem. There’ll be another one in 10 minutes.

PART 3 — 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.
