28 金 Lesson180 今週のREVIEW
Hey everyone. Rosa Akino here. Are you ready for Friday’s review? I know I am.
Hi, everyone. I’m Chris McVay. As I’ve said before repetition is the basis of all the learning. So let’s review.
-Starting off Monday’s dialog.
Honey, did you know that Cindy called “TV Mrcket Now”?
Who did you say Cindy called?
“TV Market Now,” the home shopping TV channel. She wanted to order some sneakers.
WHAT? I can’t believe she did that without our permission. Where is she now?
Calm down. She wasn’t actually able to buy them because the operator sensed that Cindy was just a little girl. He told her to ask her parents first.
Well, that’s very good of the operator to do that. But we should still have words with Cindy to make sure she never does it again.
Who did you say Cindy called?
-Moving on. It’s Tuesday’s dialog.
Ivy, you’re going to Carl’s Christmas party in Ebisu, aren’t you?
Yes, I read the email invitation. It says there is going to be a present exchange. We’re supposed to bring a gift that costs no more than 1,000 yen.
Did you buy your gift already?
Yes. I bought a loofah.
You bought a what?
A loofah. It’s a kind of sponge made from a tropical plant. It’s good for washing your body with soap when you take a shower.
That’s the first time I’ve heard of it.
Well, I think more women know about it than men.
l bought a loofah. You bought a what?
-Continuing on. It’s Wednesday’s dialog.
Ian, that was a wonderful Christmas dinner. I am so full.
Well, you can never be hungry after a traditional Christmas dinner.
It was my first time to eat a mince pie.
Did you like it?
Yes, it was interesting. I’m not so used to spices in pies. Anyway, I’m sorry, but I have to be going now.
The night is still young. Why don’t you stay longer?
I have to work tomorrow.
But it’s Christmas Day!
Yes, but in Japan, Christmas Day is not a holiday.
Why don’t you stay longer?
Why don’t we -?, Why not?
-Finally, let’s listen to Thursday’s dialog.
Mom, I’m hungry. Do we have any snacks? Snacks?
We’ll be having dinner in just an hour or so. By the way, have you done your homework yet?
It’s the first day of my winter vacation. I have lots of time to do it.
You promised to do one hour of homework every day. That means every day.
OK, I’ll do it, but only if I can have some potato chips.
Excuse me? Who do you think you are? Just get started on that homework right now, young man! Or you won’t have any dinner, never mind snacks. Understood?
OK, OK, I got it.
Who do you think you are?
Who knows?, 反語 What do you say? 提案, What are you waiting for? さっさとしてくれ。 What are you doing? 何をやってんだよ。
So guys, today’s challenge will allow you to to get emotional. So my suggestion is to enjoy it and just let your English flow. Remember! Don’t hesitate.
And we strongly recommend that you get used to these questions that are not real questions. In other words, they don’t require an answer. Why? Because native speakers use them all the time, So get to use to them.
talk to〜like that 〜にそんな口の利き方をする
I can’t believe you said that. Who are you to talk to Mom like that? Think about it. Who do you think takes care of you every day? Why don’t you apologize to her right now?
Hey, how dare you insult Mom like that! Who the heck do you think you are? Why don’t you learn to control yourself? Go and apologize to her right away. Just do it!
「how dare +主語+動詞」は「よくも〜できるものだ」
the heck, the hell（地獄）の婉曲表現で「一体全体」。
control oneself 自制する・自分を抑える
go and -「〜しに行く」
Just do it.（とにかくやれ）
Wow! So our listeners have been with us for nine whole months. Isn’t that amazing?
It’s amazing. Look at their level they’ve reached.
You know, I think these questions ??? we’ve been studying today. All this week, actually, they’re really useful.
I would say there’s no questions about it.
