Listen to this week's stories and fill in the blanks.
Lesson 057 Running on sports day?
RoboCorpus: Hello. Boon.
Boon: Oh... Robo.... Why are you here?
RoboCorpus: I’m here because I want you to participate in the vocabulary contest.
Boon: I don’t know.... I hate competition.
RoboCorpus: I will help you. Also, I will learn how you run, and participate in this town’s sports day.
Boon: You? Running on sports day? You’re joking, right?
RoboCorpus: I’m serious. Let’s try our best.
Boon: I don’t think a robot like you can run fast.
RoboCorpus: Here’s a quote from my corpus.
Don not fear failure but rather fear not trying.
Boon: Hmm.... I think you’re right, Robo.
Lesson 058 Am I running?
RoboCorpus: Lex, look! Am I running?
Lex: No. You’re walking.
RoboCorpus: I am trying to move faster, but I can’t.
Lex: It’s impossible for machines to run like humans, RoboCorpus.
RoboCorpus: How do you know it’s impossible?
Lex: Because we’re machines! We don’t eat. We don’t sleep. We don’t run!
RoboCorpus: Cars and trains can run faster than humans.
Lex: Because they are machines which are designed for that purpose!
Jukichi: Hey, you two! Come back. Boon is here.
Ms. Saito: Oh, hi, Boon. What’s up?
Boon: Ms. Saito, I think I’ll take part in the vocabulary contest. I have no confidence, but at least I should try.
RoboCorpus. Lex. Jukichi: Wow, great!
Lesson 059 She’s a great teacher
Ms. Saito: Boon, read the English word, then tell me its meaning in Japanese, OK?
Ms. Saito: RoboCorpus, are you ready?
RoboCorpus: Yes, ma’am. “Vegetable.”
Ms. Saito: Correct. Next.
Boon: Um.... I don’t know.
RoboCorpus: It’s kyabetsu.
Ms. Saito: There are many katakana loanwords which come from English. But some words like “cabbage “ have different pronunciations.
Boon: Thanks, Ms. Saito. Now I can remember “cabbage.”
Ms. Saito: Good. RoboCorpus, help him practice 50 words a day. Boon, when you memorize words, use all four language skills. Listening, reading, speaking, and writing.
Jukichi: Impressive. She’s a great teacher.
Lesson 060 Please open this book
Lex: It’s been a long day. I need to charge my batteries.
RoboCorpus: Me, too. Goodnight.
Jukichi: Oh, it’s so peaceful. I feel great with all these old dictionaries.
Spirit: Please open this book. Let me out.
Lex: Did you say something, RoboCorpus?
RoboCorpus: No, not me....
Spirit: Please open this book.
Jukichi: There is someone hiding in the books.
Spirit: Take the red book from the bottom shelf. It’s in the left-hand corner.
RoboCorpus: Oh, this must be it.
Spirit: Thank you all. Now I’m free!
All: Who are you?
