Here‘s a great video that I practiced to today. I LOVE practicing to these “learn English” videos. In this particular video there are 4 voices. However, the conversation is spoken in 3-voice; a narrator is also present.
While practicing to this video, I used the following designations:
The question bank= Elena
The answer bank= Agatha
The Judge (KORT/KORT)= Gabrielle, the narrator
Here are some briefs from some of the terms and phrases spoken in the video:
I’m sorry= AOIMS
good night= GAOIT
somebody else= SBLS
good morning= GORNG
part time= POIM
Washington, D.C.= WARBDZ
how old= HOLD
thank you= THAUNG
do you remember= DOURM
in my opinion= NAOIP
[SIDEBAR: At approximately the 13 minute 20 second mark, there is practice for the days of the week. At approximately the 14 minute 30 second mark, there is practice for numbers one through twelve.]
It feels great to be officially back from vacation. I got a decent amount of practice in amongst all the resting and relaxing…My husband had me practicing to old episodes of Perry Mason during our vacation. It was great practice too. I guess I know what DVD box set I’m getting for Christmas as a stocking-stuffer. Lol.
