13 水 Lesson228 リポート文
Hello, everyone. I’m Rosa Akino. And I’m here to report that we’re going to have a great lesson today.
Hi, everyone. Chris McVay here. I’m afraid we don’t have time right now for a long exciting greeting, so let’s get started.

I’ve been going to the recording studio every day this week
You’re so busy these days. I hope you’re not too tired.
Thanks, I was able to get some sleep last night. Sometimes I can’t remember which day it is.
Do you want to drop by a café somewhere before the recording?
I’d love to, but I’m afraid we don’t have time right now.
I guess you’re right. Do you mind if I get a canned coffee from a vending machine? I need something to wake me up.
Sure. I’ll get one too. It’s going to be a long day.

I’m afraid we don’t have time right now.
Is it normal to say, “We don’t have time right now, I’m afraid.”
Well, you know, if you put “I’m afraid” in the end of the sentence, it sounds a bit of afterthought.
Yeah, I mean, you could say it, but definitely not the normal position.

1). I wasn’t sure whether you would like my present or not.
So, Chris, could you explain the situation of it?
Well, you could imagine the situation where this guy is buying a present for his girlfriend for the first time. Then he hands over the present.
She gets it. And she likes it. So then he says, “I wasn’t sure whether you would like my present or not.” After seeing, she likes it. So, he is
really relieved. 安心した
2). I wondered why they were asking us so many questions.
So could you explain a bit about the nuance of wonder?
My image of wonder is being so surrounded by a cloud, full of question marks, Rosa?
I think that’s the perfect explanation of the word, wonder. So it’s “I’m wondering. I’m wondering. Why, why?”

Yeah, you’ve just got to a focus clearly on the order. And then practice, practice, practice, Rosa?
Yes. Practice needs to achieve that you,
Huh! Let’s have some order here.
Sorry, let me try again.
Yes. To achieve that order, you need to practice.
That’s better. Com’on.
