Hello.
Today on Living English we're going to look at the words we use...
... to plan when we should meet someone.
We call this making arrangements.
First watch our drama to see how Anne and Sarah make arrangements to visit the wineries.
Come in Anne.
Good morning.
Good morning. [...] this day.
Yes, thank you.
What's our agenda?
What I'm speaking about is our trip to the wineries.
I wanna make [...] talk about the market.
Great!
[...] to meet you.
And when do you want to go?
As soon as possible. How about tomorrow?
I can't tomorrow. I've got some other appointment.
Er, what about the day after tomorrow?
Yes, that's good.
It's Monday today. So that will be Wednesday.
What date is that?
The fifth of November.
Okay. What time shall we meet?
I'll pick you up at nine o'clock.
Good.
How many wineries [...]?
I'm not sure. Four, five.
And definitely I begin suppliers.
And maybe a few surprises.
[...].
Will that take all day?
Most of the day.
[...] very important [...] all the way from Singapore.
Thank you.
I'm looking forward to it.
Me too.
Let's take a closer look at how to plan something.
Anne and Sarah have to plan the best day for both of them to visit the wineries.
Listen to how they find out what the best day is.
When do you want to go?
As soon as possible. How about tomorrow?
First Sarah asks 'When do you want to go?'
'When' asks about the time.
'Want to' asks about what Anne hopes to do.
Practice with the clip.
When do you want to go?
Anne replies 'As soon as possible'.
This means that she wants to go very soon.
Even in a few days.
It's a common expression.
Try saying it with Anne.
When do you want to go?
How about tomorrow?
When do you want to go?
As soon as possible. How about tomorrow?
Tomorrow is the day after today.
Anne does want to go soon.
What does Sarah say to that?
I can't tomorrow. I've got some other appointment.
She can't tomorrow.
She's not able to go tomorrow.
"Can't" is the usual way of saying 'cannot'.
She cannot go tomorrow.
Practice with the clip.
I've got some other appointment.
I can't tomorrow. I've got some other appointment.
Now listen to what Sarah suggests.
What about the day after tomorrow?
What about?
We say 'what about' or 'how about' when we're making suggestions.
Here's Anne's first suggestion again.
How about tomorrow?
And here's Sarah's suggestion.
What about the day after tomorrow?
And what does Anne think about that suggestion?
Yes, that's good.
It's Monday today. So that will be Wednesday.
So Wednesday is the day to go to the wineries.
Not tomorrow.
But the day after tomorrow.
A quick question.
If today is Monday what is tomorrow?
Tuesday.
But Anne needs to find out about the day after tomorrow.
Wednesday.
Listen.
What date is that?
The fifth of November.
Okay.
Okay. What time shall we meet?
I'll pick you up at nine o'clock.
It's time to say 'hello' to Michelle.
Hello Michelle.
Hello Brenton.
Hello everyone.
Today we're going to learn about the words we use to talk about days.
Here's Sarah [...] of the date Anne would visit the wineries.
The fifth of November.
When we say a date we use 'the' and adjectival number for the day.
Repeat.
And say 'of' and then the month.
The fifth of November.
Let's have a close look at adjectival numbers.
Help me Brenton.
There are five things in this bag.
Take one out.
What is it?
It's a ball.
So the first object Brenton took out is a ball.
What's next?
It's a video.
That's the second object.
Next we have a cap.
That's the third object to appear.
And the next is a kangaroo.
That's the fourth object.
And here's the last one.
It's a book.
It's also the fifth object.
This type of numbers tells us the order of things in time.
What was before something else?
So can you remember which object was third?
You help me.
What was third?
The cap was third.
What was the cap after?
The cap was after the video.
What was the cap before?
The cap was before the kangaroo.
And what was second?
The video was second.
What was the video after?
The video was after the ball.
What was the video before?
The video was before the cap.
What was fourth?
The kangaroo was fourth.
What was first?
The ball was first.
And what was fifth?
The book was fifth.
And we can also say the book was last.
Because there was nothing after the book.
It's not easy to say fifth.
Have a look at saying 'the fifth of November' with Sarah.
The fifth of November.
Which program are we doing today Brenton?
It's our twelfth program.
All of the adjectival numbers except the first, second and third have this 'th' sound on the end.
Such as ninth and sixteenth.
Often we just write the number followed by the 'th'.
The ones with the 'v' sound five and twelve change their 'v' sound to 'f' sound.
Fifth.
Twelfth.
Now let's see if you can remember what number program this is.
It's the...
... twelfth.
There can be thirty one days in a month.
How do you say twenty and thirty?
Instead of just the 'th' sound we add an 'eth' sound.
Twentieth.
Thirtieth.
I see the spelling changes too.
The y-s on the end change to i-s.
What about twenty three?
That's the twenty third.
And thirty one?
That's the thirty first.
Let's try some on our viewers.
How do you say this date?
The twenty second of June.
How do you say this date?
The thirtieth of June.
And this one?
The fifteenth of May.
And this one?
The second of July.
Let's listen to the date Sarah and Anne would visit the wineries one last time.
The fifth of November.
When is your birthday Brenton?
The nineteenth of June.
His birthday is on the nineteenth of June.
When is your birthday?
Oh!
I'm sorry your birthday is not today Brenton.
Because I've made you a cake.
Thank you, that's a beautiful cake.
Would you like some?
Yes, please.
Okay.
How much?
Oh, that's too much.
That's a half of the cake.
Okay.
That's still too much.
That's a quarter of the cake.
Alright.
Can you manage this?
I'll try.
That's an eighth of the cake.
We call these numbers fractions.
They're less than one.
Except for half and quarter the numbers are the same as the numbers we use for dates.
But we always say 'an', or 'a', or 'one' before the numbers.
So let's look at them again.
Repeat the fractions after me.
This...
... is a half of the cake.
I could also say 'It's one half of the cake'.
This is a quarter of the cake.
Or one quarter of the cake.
This is an eighth of the cake.
I say 'an' instead of 'a' because 'eighth' starts with a vowel sound.
Can we eat the cake now?
First let's review how we talk about time.
Listen to Anne and Sarah again.
What time shall we meet?
I'll pick you up at nine o'clock.
Did you hear the word Sarah used before the time?
She said 'at nine o'clock'.
Remember when we talk about the time we use the words 'at' and 'on' in different ways.
Repeat the phrase with Sarah.
I'll pick you up at nine o'clock.
I'll pick you up at nine o'clock.
But we use a different word when we say a day.
When are you working with us next week Brenton?
On Tuesday.
So we use 'on' if we're talking about the day.
What time will you be working on Tuesday?
I'm starting at nine o'clock on Tuesday.
So we use 'at' for the time and 'on' for the day.
I'll see you at nine o'clock on Tuesday Brenton.
I'll see you then.
And that's all we have for today.
