  1. 1. My first Three weeks Orlando Martinez Alicea Dr. Mario Medina Basic English
  2. 2. My First Week
  3. 5. <ul><li>Talk English: Greeting - Someone You Know Poor Best  </li></ul><ul><li>Greeting someone you already know: </li></ul><ul><li>“ Hey John, how have you been?” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Hi Bob, how are you?” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Hi Nancy, what have you been up to?” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Andy, it’s been a long time, how are you man?” </li></ul><ul><li>If you meet someone unexpectedly, you can say, </li></ul><ul><li>“ Hey Jack, it’s good to see you.  What are you doing here?” </li></ul><ul><li>Or </li></ul><ul><li>“ What a surprise.  I haven’t seen you in a long time.  How have you been?” </li></ul><ul><li>If you see the person at a restaurant, you can say, </li></ul><ul><li>“ Do you come to this restaurant often?” </li></ul>

  5. 8. My second week
  6. 9. <ul><li>Talk English: Weather I - Summer and Autumn Poor Best  In this section, we will learn about the four different seasons along with the difference between Celsius and Fahrenheit. Also, we will learn about weather in different parts of the world. In the next session, we will practice more dialog. But this is a good starting point when learning to hold a conversation about the weather . Summer: Depending on the location, summer can be warm and pleasant or unbearably hot and humid. Although you will describe summer in one particular way, you should be aware of how other people describe summer in different parts of the world. In Nevada, Arizona, Egypt, or other places that are like deserts, people might say, </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Summer is very hot and dry. It is not so bad when we are in the shade.&quot; &quot;Summer is extremely hot. The sun will burn you if you don’t wear sunscreen.&quot; &quot;Because it is not humid, it is easy to get used to.&quot; In Seattle, the summer is the best season, </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Summer is the only time of year that it doesn’t rain much.&quot; </li></ul>
  7. 10. <ul><li>General Phrases </li></ul><ul><li>“ I’m dying from boredom.” “I hate being bored.” “I don’t have anything to do.” “My life is so boring.” “Life is so boring.” “I’m just watching TV until I find something to do.” </li></ul>
  8. 11. <ul><li>“ I was bored all weekend.” “I am so bored today.” “I get bored very easily.” “I get bored all the time.” </li></ul>
  9. 12. <ul><li>Talk English: Weather V - Long Description Poor Best  Being able to speak specific sentences is good, however, it is more important to be able to say a whole paragraph when talking about topics such as the weather. I’ll have a specific lesson about putting sentences together in a future lesson. But I’ll give one advice now. Basically, make about 10 sentences. After you know your ten sentences about this question, you can say all of them one after the other so it is a long answer. The ten sentences should be in a list format. We will learn how to speak longer in a future lesson, but if you want to give it a try now, here are two examples. </li></ul><ul><li>Question: &quot;What is the weather like in Korea?&quot; Answer: &quot;Well, the weather in Korea is unique with four distinct seasons. In the winter, the temperature is about zero degrees Celsius. But, because it doesn’t rain much in the winter, there isn’t much snow and the air is very dry. In spring, the days warm up significantly but the night gets a little chilly. The summer has two characteristics. It is very hot and humid most of the time, and for about 3 weeks or so, we have a rainy season called monsoon. It gets very rainy and windy during that time period. But we all look forward to autumn. It is a beautiful time of year and the temperature is very pleasant. If you plan on visiting Korea, I highly recommend visiting during autumn.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>Question: &quot;Which season do you like the most?&quot; Answer: &quot;I like summer the most, but at the same time, I hate it. I like summer because it’s warm. I don’t mind the heat and I like the longer days. So, I can do more activities like swimming, bicycling, rollerblading, and many other outdoor activities. I usually take a short vacation during the summer so I always look forward to that. However, the part about summer I hate the most is during the monsoon season. I can tolerate the humidity, but when it gets hot and humid along with the rain and the wind, then it gets terrible.&quot; </li></ul>

  11. 15. Mi third Week
  12. 16. <ul><li>Talk English: Types II - Comedy and Horror Poor Best  Comedy: Funny movies with many jokes or actors acting in a funny way. </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;I love all types of comedy because I love to laugh.&quot; &quot;Comedy is my favorite because it is very entertaining to me.&quot; &quot;I like comedy that makes fun of political things.&quot; &quot;Comedy is so hilarious that I always enjoy watching them.&quot; </li></ul>
  13. 17. <ul><li>Romantic Comedy : Funny movies with a strong romantic theme. Opposite to action because usually guys like action and the ladies like Romantic comedies. &quot;Many people view romantic comedy movies as chick-flicks.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>Chick = girl Flick = movie Chick-Flick = a girly type of movie; a movie a girl will like; ‘take your girlfriend to’ type of movie, or something like that. &quot;Romantic comedy is funny movies that involve a lot of romance.&quot; &quot;I love all the story lines of romantic comedy movies.&quot; </li></ul>
  14. 18. <ul><li>Horror: Scary movies that will give you nightmares for 3 months. &quot;When I was a little kid, I couldn’t sleep because of horror movies.&quot; &quot;Horror movies are not scary anymore.&quot; &quot;I have yet to see a movie that really scares me.&quot; &quot;I hate horror movies because I cannot sleep.&quot; &quot;I always have nightmares after watching horror movies so I try to avoid them.&quot; </li></ul>
  15. 19. <ul><li>Spring and Fall / Autumn From my perception, I noticed that spring and autumn are generally pleasant seasons for many areas of the world. I haven’t heard enough to say one way or another, so I can only write down what I know. &quot;My favorite season is autumn.&quot; &quot;The only reason I don’t like the fall is due to all the leaves I have to rake up.&quot; &quot;Fall is so beautiful because of all the different color leaves everywhere.&quot; &quot;It rains a lot around here during the fall.&quot; &quot;It gets cold in late autumn.&quot; &quot;In our country, autumn is just like summer. It’s hot and humid.&quot; &quot;My favorite season is spring because of the budding flowers.&quot; &quot;I love the spring because it’s not cold nor hot.&quot; &quot;The spring season here causes a lot of people to sneeze due to all the flowers appearing. Many people with allergies hate the spring.&quot; </li></ul>
