15 金 Lesson230 今週のREVIEW
Hey, everyone. Rosa Akino here. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, it’s Friday. That means it’s time to review, right, Chris?
That’s right. Chris McVay here. And I’m glad Rosa learned the name of the days in English. That’s pretty good. Let’s review.

What time does the mountain bike race start?
It starts at 9 a.m., so staffers need to be in their designated positions by 8:30.
OK, I’ll try to be there a little early.
Good. We had some accidents resulting in injuries at last year’s race, so I need you ready to act. Please have the emergency medical kits open just in case.
I’m getting a little nervous now.
Relax. All you have to do is remember the basic treatments. If you get into trouble, contact me by phone, not email、as soon as possible.
OK. See you tomorrow

I need you ready to act.
あなたにはすぐ行動に移れるようにしておいてほしいのです。

Why do you keep checking your phone?
We’re having dinner together.
I’m just checking my messages.
My parents never let me use my phone at the dinner.
Really? Your parents are too strict. My parents don’t mind my using m phone at dinner.
That’s unbelievable. My parents would get so mad. They always say dinner is a time to talk with each other as a family.
They have a good point, but my friends always send me messages even during dinnertime.
Why don’t you just reply later?
They expect me to reply quickly.
I disagree with that attitude.

My parents never let me use my phone at the dinner table.
両親は決して夕食のテーブルで私にスマートフォンを使わせてくれない。

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.
残念ですが今は時間がありません。

Here you are, Lyla! Look. I baked a carrot cake.
It looks good, Christian, but look at the mess in the kitchen. Cleaning up after you is not my job.
I need to use a lot of cups and bowls when I bake.
Can’t you clean up as you go along.
I’ll wash the dishes in a few minutes. I still need to make the cream cheese frosting.
So you’re going to make more of a mess?
Yes, sorry. But anyway, have a slice of the cake and tell me what you think, OK?

Cleaning up after you is not my job.
あなたの後ろをついていって掃除して回るのは、私の仕事ではありません。

So, like we always say, English is all about the order, right? So, as long as you have the order down, you’ll be fine.
That’s right, and if you get the order down, you will begin to feel the native speaker’s intuition. 直感 That will help you speak more naturally as well. Good luck.
have – down 会得する、マスターする
= get – down


マートフォンを駅のプラットホームで使うのってすごく危険じゃないかな?ほかの人を危険にさらすことだってあるよ。私の両親は決して私に歩きながらスマートフォンを使うことを許したりしない。それって絶対正しいよ」
train platform 駅のプラットフォーム, put – at risk 〜を危険にさらす

Using a smartphone on the train platform is very dangerous, don’t you think?
It can put others at risk.
My parents never let me use my smartphone while walking. And they are definitely right.


This morning, I was waiting to catch the train when suddenly this high school student chatting on his smartphone bumps into me.
Using a smartphone while walking along the train platform is asking for trouble, right? I made him apologize and stop using his phone.

Yes, keep practicing, but remember how you practice is important. You have to imagine the situation, and then practice much more naturally.
That’s right. And if you ever feel lost, remember!
