Welcome to Year 1, Week 6, Lesson 1.6.3. Today we will work on your English conversation and reading skills. We begin dialogues 16-18 from our English course, American English Conversations 1. Designed for beginners, these dialogues help 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: Read the dialogues below in English, then translate them and read them in your primary language.
Dialog 16: Coincidences
- Allen: Haven’t I seen you somewhere before?
- Julia: No, I don’t think so.
- Allen: But your face is so familiar. Wait a second… I know… We were on the same flight to New York last month.
- Julia: Oh, yes. Now I remember. What a coincidence to meet in San Francisco!
- Allen: Well, you know what they say—it’s a small world.
Dialog 17: Safety
- Peter: There’s the shoe store we’ve been looking for. It’s just across the street.
- Gail: Wait! You can’t cross the street in the middle of the block! You have to cross at the corner.
- Peter: Oh, come on. Let’s go across here. (Sound of car screeching)
- Gail: Look out! You nearly got hit by that car! Now do you see why you should cross at the corner?
- Peter: I guess you’re right. I’ll be more careful after this.
Dialog 18: Musical Instruments
(Sound of piano playing)
- Anne: Listen! Somebody’s playing the piano.
- Betty: Yeah, it sounds nice, doesn’t it? I wish I could play a musical instrument.
- Anne: Don’t you play the violin?
- Betty: No, but my sister does. Actually, she’s pretty good at it.
- Anne: I took flute lessons for a couple of years, but I never learned to play very well. I guess I don’t have any musical talent.
- Betty: Oh, that’s not true. You sing very well. I can’t even do that!
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.

Hello. Good afternoom. I’m Nelson.
What a luck to meet on the same commercial center!
What a coincidence to wear the same shirt!
Haven’t I seen her in your office before?
Here’s the things we’ve been looking for years.
Let’s go across the street. Let’s cross the street. Let’s drink that juice. Let’s call your sister.
Now do you see why you should ask me before drive to here?
I’ll be more careful when go to the boss’s office.
This meal tastes very nice, doesn’t it? I gave you a reminder yesterday morning, don’t it?
I wish I could travel to Austria and know many castle.
That’s not true. You can get a lot of money.
Thanks for thislesson.
Great job, Nelson. Keep up the hard work! 🙂
these dialogues are a great way of improving my communication and speaking skills while practicing pronunciation of various words and lengths of sentences.
Repeating many times after the video I found that to speak English with confidence I must practice and
practice some more.
There’s a saying, Mongi – “Practice makes perfect.” Keep up the good work! 🙂

Hello. This is Wilber from Nicaragua.
These were new words and expressions for me:
I looked them up in the dictionary. Thank you.
Good job, Wilber. You can check http://www.dictionary.com and http://www.dictionary.sersea.com for definitions.
In this lesson I have learned some new word and new phrases like:
cross, across, corner, look out, pretty good, screeching, flute, somewhere, somebody.
This lesson is so helpful.
Thank you very much!
I’m happy you are progressing, Eta. Well done! 🙂
Hello, we are advancing very well, improving our comprehension and comunication skills. Particularly there are two expressions I think are helpfull:
I wish I could..
She is pretty good at it…
I usually pronounce the word “familiar” in wrong stress. Now, I’ve got the right one by practicing together with your lesson. And also the word “coincidence”. I like using the idiom “It’s a small world” because I have the same event.
I’ve learned the pattern “got hit by” from this. I am sure to use what I’ve learned in the proper situation.

Elizabeth, I’m glad you’re improving your English vocabulary with me. 🙂
Good evening. The first lesson remembered me several coincidences that I have had in my life, the truth is that the world is very small.
The 2nd. Lesson, teaches us the importance of following the rules, that avoids us many problems and dangers.
3rd. Lesson, this lesson made me think and analyze about what musical instrument I like, I really like all of them, but I did not learn to play any of them😔, although I do like to sing a lot.
There are 3 dialogues that connected with the previous lesson.
Thank you for this lesson.
Good evening everyone,
That’s very interesting online English course, and the way that you do it very good. I will never thank enough the friend who this website with me.
Thanks a lot Maestro Sersea

Today, I was learned three practicing videos. I read them out loud at least 3-5 times. Vocabularies and sentences are so strange for me. I learned a lot vocabularies. I learned cross, across, look out and somethings like that. They are very great learning videos, don’t they? Thanks a lot for your learning video and explanation.
