Conversation 对话


Anna: Last time on Let’s Learn English, Marsha and I invited friends to a dinner party but I shopped with the wrong list. Guests are coming soon. Marsha is worried but I have a plan. Let’s see what it is.
Anna: I just need a couple of ingredients. Marsha, please hand me the flour.
Marsha: Anna, where is the flour? It's not in the cabinets.
Anna: I put the flour inside the refrigerator.
Marsha: Why?
Anna: It’s cold and dry in the refrigerator. See, it says: “Put in a cold, dry place.” Okay, now, Marsha, please hand me the eggs.
Marsha: Anna, where are the eggs?
Anna: The eggs are inside the cabinet under the sink.
Marsha: Anna, why are the eggs in here?
Anna: On the farm, we always put the eggs there. How else can the chickens see them? Okay. You clean the living room. I will make dinner.
Marsha: What are you going to make with these ingredients?
Anna: I have a plan.
Marsha: Okay, the apartment is clean. The kitchen is not. What are you cooking?
Anna: I made my favorite recipe: peanut-butter-banana pancakes!
Marsha: You made breakfast.
Anna: Yes! I call it let’s-eat-breakfast-for-dinner dinner!
Marsha: Anna! Mmm! Hey, this tastes good! Anna, you made it work!
Anna: That’s our guests!
Marsha: I’ll answer the door.
Anna: I’ll finish here.
Anna: Like I said, sometimes Marsha worries too much. When something goes wrong with your plan, just change the plan! Till next time!

Learning Strategy 学习技巧

Learning Strategies are the thoughts and actions that help make learning easier or more effective.

The learning strategy for this lesson is Substitute. That means using one thing instead of another. In using English, if you can't think of a word, you can use a phrase that means the same thing. Let's say you cannot remember the word "huge." You can say "very, very big" instead and communicate the same meaning. Or, you can use a gesture with your arms out to your side. Gestures are another way to substitute when communicating in your second language.

本课的学习技巧是替换。如果你在说英语时,忽然想不起某个词的说话,不妨换了用法来表达同样的意思。比如说,你不记得 huge 怎么说了,就可以说,very very big, 反正意思是一样的,或者也可以用手势比划。

In this lesson, after Anna makes pancakes for dinner, she says, "Yes! I call it let’s-eat-breakfast-for-dinner dinner!" She substitutes a breakfast food for a dinner food. Marsha agrees with Anna's substitution. She says, "Anna, you made it work!

本课中,Anna晚饭做了薄煎饼,用早餐的食物来做晚饭,就是替代的例子。

How about you? Do you ever substitute in speaking English? Write to us about it in the Comments section or send us an email. Teachers, see the Lesson Plan for more details on teaching this strategy.
