Are you ready for the Practical challenge?
Remember, don’t think too hard about it.
Just relax and use the phrases that you learned all this week.
And talking about phrases.
The phrase in the dialogue this week was “That’s a great attitude.”
And I think for learning a language, it’s really important to have
the right attitude like, I can do it if you want to be successful.
Partner – It’s me. I just noticed that…
You – Sorry. I didn’t catch you. Actually, I’m in a restaurant, and it’s a bit noisy, so I can’t hear you well.
I’ll call you back as soon as I get out of here.
Can you wait until then?
hear 聞こえる ※音が向こうからやってくる感覚 ⇆ listen 耳を傾ける
until ～まで ※その時点まで同じ状態が続く
You – I’m sorry. There’s too much noise in this restaurant, so I can’t catch what you’re saying.
How about I call you back in ten minutes or so?
We should have finished our business lunch by then.
How about ～してはどうでしょう
in ten minutes 10分ぐらい後で ※inが10分後という「時点」を表す
should have- 〜しているはず ※その時点までに完了している出来事を表す
So, Chris, what would you do if you received a phone call
in the middle of the business lunch?
If the business lunch were really boring, I’d be happy to escape.
But, in real life, I’d probably apologize sincerely
and then take the call outside.
How about you, Hiroto?
I never receive calls. I’m not popular.
