Welcome to Year 1, Week 14, Lesson 1.14.3. Today we will work on your English conversation and reading skills. We begin dialogues 10-12 from our English course, American English Conversations 2. 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.
Dialogue 10 – After the Game
- Gloria: Did you watch the game last night?
- Roy: I sure did. I wouldn’t have missed it for anything?
- Gloria: I think it was one of the best games I’ve ever seen.
- Roy: Me too. I thought both teams played super ball. Too bad one had to lose.
- Gloria: Yeah. I thought they were evenly matched. It could have gone either way!
- Roy: That shot that won in the last fifteen seconds was really something.
Dialogue 11 – Going for a Walk
- Roger: What did you say?
- Claire: I said that it’s a lovely day. Why don’t we go for a walk?
- Roger: Can you wait a few minutes? I have to finish this letter.
- Claire: Don’t take too long. It would be a shame not to take advantage of such lovely weather.
- Roger: I won’t be long. No more than ten minutes. Why don’t you go on ahead and I’ll meet you in the park.
- Claire: Believe I will. Look for me near the rock garden.
Dialogue 12 – What’s for Dinner?
- Mother: I wonder what we should have for dinner this evening?
- Mona: Are you asking me?
- Mother: Yes, I am. I really don’t feel much like cooking, but the family must eat.
- Mona: Well, you know me. I can always eat pizza—or spaghetti.
- Mother: So I’ve noticed. You’re putting on a little weight, aren’t you?
- Mona: I know. Don’t mind me! I’m starting a new diet day after tomorrow.
- Mother: It’s about time!
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.

To be honest, I am not very familiar with the sport. I’ve got the usage of language in the conversation about sport.
” It would be a shame if you take advantage of such a lovely day is”, “why don’t you go on ahead” “I wonder what we should have for dinner this evening” “I am starting a new diet day…”

All of the lessons are very helpful. I got new sentences like:
Don’t mind me. It’s about time. I really don’t feel much like cooking. It would be a shame not to take advantage of… You’re putting on a little weight, aren’t you? I wouldn’t have missed it for anything.
Thank you very much.
I wouldn’t have missed the opportunity for taking American English classes.
Here I am learning some new phrases like “evenly matched”, “either way”, “feel like”, “putting on”, “It’s about time”.
I need to use those and be able to include in my vocabulary.
