基礎英語３ Review 19 We have to fight them
Listen to this week's stories and fill in the blanks.
Lesson 073 Tell me your schedule
Ms. Saito: Good morning, class! I have good news! It's about the English Vocabulary Contest. Boon won the preliminary round and will go to the national contest!
Class: Congratulations! Amazing! Wow!
Boon: Thanks, everyone.
Ms. Saito: Boon, let’s start practicing tomorrow.
Ms. Saito: Tell me your schedule.
Boon: I get up seven, and come to school by bus around eight. I have four classes in the morning.
Ms. Saito: What about lunchtime?
Boon: I usually eat lunch quickly, so I have at least 30 minutes for practice.
Ms. Saito: And how much time do you have after school?
Boon: I have to go home early on Wednesday, but I can practice on all the other days.
Lesson 074 We have to fight them
Lex: How are you doing, RoboCorpus?
Jukichi: You might need another repair after running 1,500 meters.
RoboCorpus: I’m OK, thank you.
Lex: Boom seems to be ready for the next contest. He is much more prepared. Don’t you think it’s time to go?
RoboCorpus: Yes, maybe.
Jukichi: I’ll really miss all these old books, but we can’t stay here forever.
RoboCorpus: What happened, Sylphie?
Sylphie: They’re coming. I can feel it.
Lex: Who are they?
Sylphie: The Negatives. They’ve found out that I am free!
Lex: Oh, no! We have to go. Now!
Sylphie: We cannot escape. We have to fight them.
RoboCorpus: That’s right. We must protect the humans from dark forces.
Lesson 075 Are you ready for practice?
Ms. Saito: OK, Boon. Are you ready for practice?
Ms. Saito: The national contest consists of two parts. One is the vocabulary contest that is similar to the last one. The other is the chunk contest.
Boon: Chunk? That sounds more difficult than memorizing single words.
Ms. Saito: Yes, but the training method is the same. RoboCorpus, can you show him an example?
RoboCorpus: OK. Let’s try chunks using the verb “take.” Ready？ 電車に乗る。
Boon: Take a train.
RoboCorpus: Correct! 昼寝をする。
Boon: Take a.... I don’t know.
RoboCorpus: Take a nap.
Lex: I think we are going to be here for a while.
Lesson 076 He's suddenly lost his confidence
Ms. Saito: Hi, RoboCorpus.
RoboCorpus: Hi, Ms. Saito. Where is Boon?
Ms. Saito: He’s not coming today. He says he feels sick.
RoboCorpus: I’m sorry to hear that.
Ms. Saito: There’s something wrong with him. It’s not just a cold or a fever.
RoboCorpus: What do you mean?
Ms. Saito: He’s suddenly lost his confidence. He is so worried about losing the contest and losing face.
RoboCorpus: Can I talk to him? I want to encourage him.
Ms. Saito: Sure. But you must come to school to see him tomorrow.
Sylphie: Oh, no. Maybe Boon is being influenced by the Negatives.
Jukichi: Yes, that’s probably why he started thinking negatively!
Lex: We must rescue Boon!
