(Music).

Hello, everyone, and welcome to a new day of learning together right here at The Mall.

Let’s Talk in English.

My name is Andrea.

Now we are still learning how to talk about phone calls.

Now sometimes when you are on the phone with a friend, it’s not always easy to understand what you’re friend is saying.

When you’re making a phone call, it’s not always easy to know what the other person is saying.

So you might need to use this question: Can you repeat that?

Can you repeat that?

Well, friends, ”Can You Repeat That?” is the title of our lesson today.

Well, here is your FIND IT question.

What is Miss Bay’s order?

Can I repeat that?

Yes, I can repeat that.

Here it is again.

What is Miss Bay’s order?

Well, listen carefully for the answer.

Now let’s go to the Information Desk.

Hello.

(Chinese).

Hi, Jason.

What are you reading?

It’s an article about phone manners.

It’s interesting.

Can I read it?

Sure!

You are talking to someone on the phone.

But you have a problem.

You can’t hear the caller.

What can you do?

You can say, ”Can you please repeat that?” Then the caller will say the information again.

Sometimes a caller talks too fast.

You can’t understand him.

What can you do?

You can say, ”Please slow down.” Then the caller will slow down.

But have good manners.

Always say ”please” and ”thank you.” Hmm.

Maybe I can try these tips today.

(Music).

Hello again, everyone.

Hi, everybody.

My name is Tom.

Now in this conversation, Jason and I were talking, and Jason’s learning a little bit about phone manners.

Tom, Tom! Tom! Tom, please! Please slow down!

Was I talking quickly?

Uh, yes, you’re talking very quickly.

I just get excited because this is all about phone manners, and Jason needs to learn his phone manners.

No, no, no! Tom, Tom! You need to slow down.

Can you please repeat that again?

And slow down.

Ah, slow down.

OK.

Um, I was talking about manners.

Good.

Phone manners.

And friends, manners is one of our key words.

Say it with me slowly.

manners.

manners.

manners.

Good. Nice job.

Do you have good manners?

Your manners are how you act, especially how you act when other people are around.

What are your manners?

Yes, when you have good manners, you are very kind and polite.

You use nice words when you talk to people.

When you have good manners, you use words like ”please” and ”thank you” a lot.

Ah, those are very good manners.

And of course if you can’t understand something that somebody says,

then you could say, ”Please repeat that.” That is good manners, great manners to repeat something if you are talking a little...

OK, OK, Tom, Tom.

You need to slow down again.

Oh.

Yes.

OK.

Slow down.

Slow down.

Yes.

Why?

Because that’s a key word.

Let’s talk about it.

Our key words here are...

slow down.

slow down.

slow down.

Please slow down.

Now when you slow down, you are doing something very, very quickly, but then you stop being so fast.

You slowly down.

So if you’re talking too fast, then maybe you need to slow down.

Or if you are driving, you might be driving too fast.

Please slow down.

Be careful.

Well, we are learning about phone manners - how to be kind and polite on the phone.

And of course you don’t want to talk too quickly on the phone.

If someone is speaking too quickly, you can say, ”Please slow down.” OK.

I’ll try to remember that.

Friends, let’s review these key words.

The first one is...

manners.

manners.

It always has an ”s.” Here we go.

Robby has bad manners.

He never says ”thank you.” slow down.

slow down.

Don’t walk so fast.

Please slow down.

Well, please listen to Conversation A.

Yes, Miss Bay, we still have those necklaces.

Great.

I’d like five green necklaces.

OK.

Where should I send your order?

My address is 519 Village Road in Hope Lake.

Can you please repeat that?

519 Village Road in Hope Lake.

OK. How do you spell ”village”?

V-I-L-L-A-G-E.

The zip code is 87514.

87514.

Thank you!

I’ll send the necklaces today!

(Music).

Friends, in this conversation, Jason is on the phone with Miss Bay.

Hey, hey, Miss Bay.

She’s in our FIND IT question.

The question is - What is Miss Bay’s order?

What is Miss Bay’s order?

Miss Bay’s order is five green necklaces.

Oh, yeah.

Five green necklaces.

Well, necklaces are things that you can put around your neck.

And green is a nice color for necklaces.

Let’s talk about this key word.

green.

green.

green.

It’s a color.

It’s what color you get when you mix blue and yellow.

And I’m sure you know this color.

What is green?

What is green outside?

Well, a lot of trees are green.

The grass is green.

Today I am wearing a green shirt.

And my eyes are also green.

Your eyes are green?

My eyes are green!

And yes, you do have a nice green shirt on today.

Friends...

Thank you, Tom.

You’re welcome.

What else is green?

Talk about it.

Think about three things that are green and talk about them.

OK. Let’s look at our next key word.

It is...

village.

village.

village.

Now Miss Bay says, ”My address is 519 Village Road in Hope Lake.” A village is a small town or a really small city or a place where people live.

A village.

Right. A village is smaller than a town.

It usually goes village, town and city.

So a village is the smallest.

Now here, Village Road is the name of the road where Miss Bay lives.

But a place can also be a village.

That... um...

Can... can you repeat that, Andrea?

Uh, sure.

A place can also be a village.

Oh. Well, how do you spell ”village”?

Oh. Oh, OK.

Village.

V-I-L-L-A-G-E.

OK. Good.

That’s how you spell ”village.” Do you knew how to spell this word, friends?

Maybe some other words are hard for you to spell.

You can ask this question: How do you spell something?

How do you spell ”green,” Tom?

How do you spell ”green”?

OK.

G-R-E-E-N.

That is how you spell ”green.” I know you got it too, friends.

And that’s our key word, so let’s review it together now.

green.

green.

The trees are green.

And...

village.

village.

A city is big, but a village is very small.

Well, friends, let’s go and enjoy Conversation B.

Hello?

Hey, Jason, it’s Tom.

Hey, Tom.

What’s up?

I have a question.

What are you...?

What?

I can’t hear you.

Can you repeat that?

What are you doing tonight?

Tom, please slow down.

I can’t understand you.

What did you say?

I said, ”What are you doing tonight?” Oh. You’re here!

I don’t have any plans tonight.

Then let’s play basketball!

OK!

(Music).

Hey, everyone.

Good to see you again.

Hey, we have a key word to talk about.

The key word is...

hey.

hey.

hey.

Now hey is another word for hi or hello.

That’s right. Hey, how are you doing?

Hey, how is it going?

Wait, hey, hi and hello.

Mmhm.

So what’s the difference between hey and hi?

Well, actually, hey and hi mean the same thing.

But you usually use the word ”hey” with people that you know very well, like, ”Hey, there.” You would use this word with your friends.

You usually don’t use it with people you just meet.

OK.

It’s like the phrase: What’s up?

You use this phrase with your friends.

Now if someone asks, ”What’s up?” don’t say, ”I’m fine.” Tell them what you’re doing.

And right now we’re going to review our key word.

It is...

hey.

hey.

Hey, Daniel! How are you?

Friends, I hope you are doing great.

Right now it’s time for us to take a break.

We’ll be rightback.

(Music).

Hi, everyone.

I hope you had a great break.

Well, we learned some important things today.

Well, we learned important things to say and use in English.

And then, and then...

Please slow down.

He wanted money, but I said no.

And then, and then...

Please, please slow down.

And then he took all my money.

So what should I do?

You should slow down.

That’s what you should do.

Now what happened?

Please slow down.

Please slow down.

(Chinese).

Hi, everyone.

Let’s practice with our Question of the Day.

How do you feel when someone asks you to repeat something?

Well, let me repeat that.

Uh, Tom, how do you feel?

Uh, wait, sorry, Andrea, I... I wasn’t listening.

Can you repeat that?

No problem.

No problem at all.

I would love to do that.

How do you feel when someone asks you to repeat something?

Ah, a good question.

Uh, you know, I don’t like it when people ask me to repeat something.

I like for them to listen to me the first time so I don’t have to repeat it.

Really?

Yeah.

OK. Well, I actually don’t mind if someone asks me to repeat something.

What about you, friends?

Be sure to practice this question today.

And then we’ll see all of you again tomorrow right here at...
