  • Welcome to twominenglish.com.Teaching you English through two-minute lessons.

  • In this lesson you will learn how to refuse to do something.

  • Vera, will you return Mrs. Helena’s recorder?

  • Is that the recorder which wasn’t working?

  • Yup.

  • I think itll be better if you return it yourself.

  • But her house is on your way to university right?

  • Yes, but she might accuse me of breaking it.

  • You can tell her that it wasn’t working beforehand.

  • She won’t believe me. Last time, I borrowed a camera from her and I really broke it.

  • Hush... Alright! I’ll return the recorder then.

  • Becky is brilliant, but I’m not sure if she can take the strain of the hike.

  • Samuel, I think Max is a better hiking partner. I think you should take him along instead of Becky.

  • But Max is a boring guy. He just keeps on talking about his girlfriend.

  • At least he won’t be a burden to you during the hike.

  • No Samuel. I am taking this hike for fun. Max will bore the death out of me. I am not going to take him.

  • Hmm... So you find Becky entertaining.

  • Oh yes! I really like Becky. I won’t mind carrying her if I have to!

  • Rouf, what are you doing?

  • Nothing, just listening to my mp3.

  • Will you please walk Tiger for some time today?

  • Samuel, you know I don’t like pets

  • I have to prepare a presentation now. I’m asking you just for today.

  • I told you earlier that Tiger and I don’t get along!

  • But Tiger is an angel.

  • Well Samuel, your angel bit me last year so I won’t be taking him anywhere. And that’s final.

  • I think itll be better if you return it yourself.

  • But she might accuse me of breaking it.

  • Max will bore the death out of me. I am not going to take him.

  • You know I don’t like pets.

  • Your angel bit me last year so I won’t be taking him anywhere. And that’s final.
