All right. Let’s take a listen to Monday’s dialog.
-Moday L86
Nicole, what are you watching?
Oh,hi, Travis. It’s a video on crows.
I don’t like crows. They make a mess of the garbage on the streets.
Travis, crows are very intelligent. Did you know they can use tools? See, this crow is using a stick to pull out some food from a bottle.
Wow, they must have big brains!
Yes, in fact they do. In relation to their bodies, their brains are huge. Anyway, people are creating the garbage problem, not the crows.

Crows are very intelligent.
カラスはとても賢い。

Can you give an example?

Thank you, Mom. But why do you look so worried?
You’ve done all you can here in Japan.
What do you mean?
I have a proposal for you. How would you like to go to a tennis academy in San Diego?
San Diego? Wow! For how long?
The training will take three years. This is a once-in-a- lifetime opportunity. What do you say?
I’d love to. I’m so lucky!

Lastly, let’s listen to Thursday’s dialog.
-Thursday L89 形容詞の後ろ置き
Jane, is something wrong?
Well, at lunch, a waiter at the restaurant told me off.
Why? What happened?
He spilled some water on the floor, and I slipped because the floor was wet. He said I needed to be more careful.
Wait a minute. He spilled the water and told you that you needed to be more careful?
Yes. Can you believe it? I’ve never met anyone so rude.
Well, I guess you won’t be going to that restaurant again.
That’s for sure.

I’ve never met anyone so rude.
私はあんなに失礼な人に会ったことは一度もありません。

-Okay, Let give you my advanced version.

While jogging in my local park, I came upon an adorable, fluffy baby bird that had fallen out of its nest. I tried to find someone capable of nursing it, but it was too badly injured and soon died in my hands. I was so sad.
