基礎英語３ Review 25 Maybe I like making people laugh
Listen to this week's stories and fill in the blanks.
Lesson 101 Why won't Kozo tell the truth?
Sylphie: So, Kozo wants to become a rakugo-ka, but he cannot tell his parents about it.
Jukichi: I see.
Lex: Sylphie! That’s what I was going to find out! Don’t steal my job!
Sylphie: Sorry, RoboCorpus asked me.
RoboCorpus: But I don’t understand. Why won’t Kozo tell the truth?
Jukichi: Because his wish is not the same as his parents’. He doesn’t want to disappoint them.
Sylphie: Kozo is a very smart boy, but he’s not happy about his future, I guess.
Lex: Humans sometimes sacrifice themselves to make others happy. But in my opinion, that makes the situation even more complicated.
RoboCorpus: I wonder if there is any way to make both of them happy.
Lesson 102 You can practice in front of me
RoboCorpus: Hi, Kozo. How are you?
Kozo: Oh, hi, Robo. Why are you here?
RoboCorpus: I want to see your rakugo performance.
Kozo: I’m still practicing.
RoboCorpus: You can practice in front of me. Look, my friends are also listening.
Kozo: What? A turtle? And a dictionary? Are you kidding? Well, I guess it’s OK. Let’s do it.
Kozo: Thanks, Rob. It was good for me to practice, but I have to go now. Bye.
Lex: What do you think?
Jukichi: He is still young, but I think he is very talented.
RoboCorpus: I didn’t understand the main point of the story very well....
Lex: Come on, RoboCorpus. You should have laughed more!
Lesson 103 Honesty is more than just not lying
RoboCorpus: I think you have improved your rakugo a lot, Kozo. By the way, I have an idea.
Kozo: What is it?
RoboCorpus: Why don’t you show your rakugo to your parents?
Kozo: What? What are you talking about?
RoboCorpus: Here’s quote from my corpus.
Honesty is more than just not lying. It is speaking the truth, living the truth, and loving the truth.
Kozo: RoboCorpus.... I think you’re right. But I’ve never talked with my parents about rakugo. How can I show them?
RoboCorpus: Leave it to me. Take care, Kozo. Bye.
Lex: RoboCorpus! Are you sure about this?
Lesson 104 watch out for the Negatives
RoboCorpus: How can we show Kozo’s rakugo to his parents?
Sylphie: There is no rakugo club at his school, so he can’t perform there.
Jukichi: How about bringing his parents to the park?
Lex: To the park? You mean Kozo is going to perform in the park?
Jukichi: That’s what he always does.
RoboCorpus: I think that’s a good idea.
Sylphie: If it’s in the park, we won’t have to prepare anything special.
Lex: OK, let’s do it. But how can we bring his parents there?
RoboCorpus: I will ask Kozo for his opinion.
Sylphie: OK. But remember, watch out for the Negatives. I have a feeling they’re going to come back soon.
