Hello.
And welcome to the program of Living English.
You'll learn how to speak English - work, travel, or study.
Each week we'll look at a short drama and practise our English.
For now let's look at the first episode of our drama 'Sisters and Brothers'.
Excuse me.
Anne Lee?
Yes. Hello.
I'm Sarah Taylor. I'm your new local buyer.
Pleased to meet you.
It's very kind of you [...].
I'm sorry. This is my husband, Mark.
Good morning.
How are you?
Very well thank you.
How was your flight?
[...] a bit tired with the very long flight.
Let's get your bags.
Oh, that's mine! The red one!
[...].
[...].
Don't worry. Mark's strong, aren't you dear?
No worries.
Come on. Let's go to hotel.
Poor Mark.
In that episode we saw how to meet people.
Let's look again at how Anne meets Sarah.
Excuse me.
Anne Lee?
Yes. Hello.
I'm Sarah Taylor. I'm your new local buyer.
Anne says 'Hello'.
Try at home with the clip.
Excuse me.
Anne Lee?
Excuse me.
Anne Lee?
Yes. Hello.
'Hello' is what we usually say when we meet people.
What does Sarah say?
I'm Sarah Taylor. I'm your new local buyer.
Pleased to meet you.
Sarah says her name.
And then she says 'Pleased to meet you'.
Let's look at this again.
I'm Sarah Taylor. I'm your new local buyer.
Pleased to meet you.
First Sarah says her name...
... because Anne doesn't know who she is.
We just say "I'm"...
... which is short for 'I am'.
And then her name.
In English we say a family name last.
Sarah's family name is Taylor.
So she says 'I'm Sarah Taylor'.
This is formal English.
You can just say your first name.
So Sarah could say 'I'm Sarah'.
My name is Brenton Whittle.
So I could say 'Hello. I'm Brenton Whittle'.
Now you try introducing yourself.
Say your name.
Hello, I'm...
Sarah says something else.
Watch again.
I'm Sarah Taylor. I'm your new local buyer.
Pleased to meet you.
She says 'Pleased to meet you'.
This is another way of greeting someone.
It's a formal way of greeting someone.
Practise with the clip.
Pleased to meet you.
Usually in Australia we shake hands when we say 'Pleased to meet you'.
Here is another way of greeting someone.
Look at the clip.
I'm sorry. This is my husband, Mark.
Good morning.
How are you?
Very well thank you.
Sarah introduces her husband Mark.
Let's look again at what she says.
I'm sorry. This is my husband, Mark.
She says 'This is my husband, Mark'.
Practise saying this with the clip.
I'm sorry. This is my husband, Mark.
Now look at how Mark greets Anne.
Good morning.
How are you?
Very well thank you.
How are you?
It is a very common way of greeting someone.
Sometimes we say 'How are you going?'
Anne says 'Very well thank you'.
Practise saying both of these phrases with the clip.
How are you?
Very well thank you.
Here's one more way of saying 'hello'.
Let's look.
Good morning.
How are you?
Very well thank you.
Mark says 'Good morning'.
Of course you can only say 'good morning' in the morning.
Try with the clip.
Good morning.
Let's look at how English works.
English is made up of sentences.
Let's look at sentences.
Firstly let's listen to Sarah.
I'm Sarah Taylor. I'm your new local buyer.
Pleased to meet you.
"I'm" is a way of saying "I am".
The word 'I' is called the subject of the sentence.
It comes first.
'Am' is called a verb.
It comes next.
And her name Sarah Taylor is called the object.
It comes after the verb.
Many sentences have this pattern.
Let's look at another one.
I'm sorry. This is my husband, Mark.
Can you work out what is the subject,
... the verb,
... and the object of the sentence?
That's right.
The word 'this' is the subject.
'Is' is the verb.
And 'my husband' is the object.
And this is Michelle Crowden
Hello Michelle. How are you today?
Hello Brenton. I'm good. Thanks.
How are you?
I'm very well.
Now, what have we got there?
I have some hats.
What are you doing with the hats?
I'll show you.
But first let's look at the saying again.
Anne is collecting her luggage.
Oh, that's mine! The red one!
Anne said that her bag was the red one.
Red is a color.
I have four hats here.
Now which is the red one?
This is the red one.
Do you know the colors?
Which hat is yellow?
This is the yellow one.
Which hat is blue?
This is the blue one.
So which hat is green?
This is the green one.
Brenton.
Which hat do you like?
This one.
Brenton likes the blue hat.
What about you Michelle?
I think I see you in red?
Ha, ha, yes.
Michelle likes the red hat.
Which hat do you like?
The blue one?
The red one?
The yellow one?
Or the green one?
You say...
... 'I like the...'
Which hat do I like?
That's right. I like the red hat.
Which hat does Brenton like?
He likes the blue hat.
So Brenton which hat is yours?
The blue one.
The blue hat is mine.
It's my hat.
The blue hat is yours.
It's your hat.
And which hat is mine?
The red hat is yours.
It's your hat.
The red hat is mine.
It's my hat.
So we've learnt four colors.
Red.
Blue.
Green.
And yellow.
And we've learnt 'your' and 'yours'...
... and 'my' and 'mine'.
But there's something else to look at in the saying.
Hear at our clips.
I'm sorry. This is my husband, Mark.
Oh, that's mine! The red one!
Sarah uses the word 'this' when she introduces Mark.
She said 'This is my husband'.
But when Anne points out to her bag...
... she uses the word 'that'.
She says 'That's mine'.
What's the difference?
Look again and see if you can tell.
I'm sorry. This is my husband, Mark.
Oh, that's mine! The red one!
What's the difference Brenton?
When Sarah says 'This is my husband'...
... she is standing right next to him.
But when Anne point to her bag...
... it's not next to her.
So Brenton, is that your hat?
This one.
Yes, it is.
Is that his hat?
No, it isn't.
This is your hat Brenton.
Thank you. Thank you.
And is that your hat Michelle?
Yes, this is my hat.
Remember in the clip.
Anne's red bag was heavy.
Is your hat heavy?
No Brenton, it's light.
This is heavy.
Yes, it's heavy.
Answer the questions at home.
Is it light?
No, it's heavy.
Is this heavy?
No, it's light.
And are you strong Brenton?
What do you think?
Is he strong?
Yes, he is I suppose.
And is Mark strong?
Let's look and listen to something else Mark says.
Don't worry. Mark's strong, aren't you dear?
No worries.
So is Mark strong?
I'm not so sure.
But Mark said something else.
Listen again.
No worries.
Mark said 'No worries'.
This is an Australian way of saying 'okay'.
And finally let's look at some different way of saying 'hello'.
Remember what Mark said when he greeted Anne.
He said 'Good morning'.
He said 'Good morning'.
Because it was in the morning.
Before twelve o'clock.
What would he say after twelve o'clock?
He could say 'Good afternoon'.
Try saying it after me.
Good afternoon.
And if it was in the evening he could say 'Good evening'.
Try saying it after me.
Good evening.
But he probably wouldn't say 'Good night'.
We usually only say 'Good night' when we're leaving or going to bed.
And I think it's time for us to leave now Brenton.
No worries Michelle.
