  1. 1. NOTICE: Les comento que una de las formas para grabar más fácil las palabras, es leyendo textos. A continuación redacto varios texto de fácil lectura. DIALOGUE : (The teacher gives the class practice with the past tense of the verb to be and also tells a " weak" joke. - Teacher: Henry, what day is today? - Student : Today is Tuesday. - and what day was yesterday? - Yesterday was Monday. - and what day was the day before yesterday? - The day before yesterday was Sunday. - Was there school the day before yesterday? - No, there was no school the day before yesterday. - You seem to know the names of the days of the week very well, Henry. Incidentally, can you tell me which day of the week is the " strongest" day. - No sir, I can't. Which day of the week is the strongest? - The strongest day of the week is Sunday. Because all of the other days are weak days. Isn't that a good joke, Henry? - Yes, it is, sir. - Helen, if this is the month of October, what was last month? - Last month was September. - and the month before last? - The month before last was August. - William, were you at school yesterday? - Yes, I was. - and were you at home last night? - No, I was at the movies last night. - John, were you at school yesterday? - No, I wasn't. I was absent from school yesterday. - Were you sick? - Yes, I was. - Don't you know that there was an examination in class yesterday? - Yes sir. Perhaps that is why I was sick. DIALOGUE: " AT THE HOTEL" <br />- Juan: I want a single room for tonight.<br />- Room clerk in hotel: Have you a reservation?<br />- No, I haven't.<br />- How long do you intend to stay in Washington?<br />- I expect to be here for three or four days at least.<br />- The only thing I have at present is a room on the eighth floor at <br />five dollars a day.<br />- Is it an inside room or outside room?<br />- It is an outside room with private bath.<br />- That will be all right.<br />- You can sign the register, and I will call a boy who will show you<br />to your room.<br />- Is there a dining room in the hotel?<br />- We have a very good dining room. We serve breakfast, lunch and<br />dinner.<br />- At what hours do you serve?<br />- We serve breakfast from eight o'clock to eleven. We serve lunch<br />from twelve o'clock to three, and dinner from five o'clock to <br />eight.<br />- Heavens! That doesn't leave me much time to see the city, does<br />it?<br />DIALOGUE:<br />" The class learns totell time" <br />- Teacher: Today we must learn to tell time in english. It is not difficult. What time is it now, John?<br />- Estudent looks at watch: It is exactly a quarter after ten.<br />- That is very good John. You may say a quarter after ten or a quarter past ten. Both form are correct.<br />- Is it possible, Mr. Smith to say it is ten-fifteen instead of it is a quarter after ten?<br />- It is possible to say it is ten-fifteen, but in everyday conversation we almost always say it is a quarter after ten. We use the forms ten-fifteen, ten-twenty-five, ten thirty only when we wish to be very exact as, for example, when we speak of the time when a train leaves or arrives. <br />- Helen, what time does our English lesson begin every day?<br />- Our English lesson begins every day at ten minutes after ten.<br />- And what time does our lesson end?<br />- Our lesson ends at eleven o'clock.<br />- Henry, what time does your last class end every day?<br />- My last class end every day at half past three in the afternoon.<br />- And what time do you arrive home every afternoon?<br />- I arrive home at about a quarter to four or perhaps ten minutes to four.<br />- That is very good, Henry. Incidentally, you may say ten minutes to four or only ten to four. It is perhaps more clear to say ten minutes to four, but very often we say only, " it is ten to four" , it is twenty after five" , etc. But you must be careful of one thing: When you tell the time in English you must always use the word it. You must say, " it is ten o'clock" . It is a quarter after three, etc. <br />" Food" <br />Food is usually associated with a region or country. Many people like their own national dishes and a variety of foreign ones. You can find European and Asian restaurants in most large cosmopolitan cities. You can find Italian, French, Chinese and Mexican restaurants in New York, Washington, San Francisco, and many other cities in the United States. You might also find Greek, Middle Eastern, and " soul food" (black American) restaurants in some cities in the U.S.<br />American hamburgers and hot dogs are popular in Tokyo and Paris.<br />In almost every country you will find rice, potatoes, eggs, bread, soup, meat, vegetables, milk, fruit and other basic foods. People cook them differently in the united States, Brazil, India, Thailand, Sweden, Japan, Germany, and in all the different countries.<br />People all over the world also prefer different things to drink. They drink a lot of tea in England and a lot of wine in France. Americans prefer coffee, beer or soda. german beer is now completely international.<br />Children are often very conservative about new foods. In the United States they often prefer to eat the same three or four favorite dishes: hamburgers and french fries, hot dogs, fried chicken and ice cream.<br />" Planning to buy groceries" <br />Lee Fong has four children, so there are a lot of people at his dinner table. Lee is going to buy some groceries today. First, he checks his cupboard. How much bread does he need? How much butter? What kind of vegetables? Is there enough fruit?<br />Next, Lee makes a shopping list. He's planning to buy two chickens, two heads of lettuce, four tomatoes and two loaves of bread. He's also going to need two quarts of milk and dozen eggs.<br />Then, he thinks about money. How much money does he need? Ten dollars? No, twenty dollars. Maybe fifty. There isn't a lot of money in his wallet.He'll have to stop at the cash machine on his way to the supermarket.<br />...In The World <br />View more documents from bautista70.<br />
