Some signs are instructional summer directional and others are informative. Make thes three words inte words sums and say them aloud into your recorder. So many signs, so much confusion. It's very, very important that you understand signs and their directions. Look at the following slides. Pulls the sides to repeat the word use words sums on right thumb in your workbook.

The started your journey, and you must tap it again at the end of your journey. Otherwise, you could be fined or end up paying a lot of money, and this is the oyster card. As it says there, this card must be tapped in at the start of a journey and tapped out at the end. Tapped means swiping it on the yellow disc that we saw previously. Project Work, right?

It's from a London term and or to a country place just outside London called Swan Lee on the date. It's valid for now. This is a ticket office. Every station has a ticket office where you can buy tickets for your journey. You can also access other information. The ticket office is also an information center where it is possible to get leaflets about places to visit times of trains on prices of tickets. There's normally a taxi stand outside the ticket office as well. A collection off leaflets at the information rack. Now you've seen these ticket machines before on a previous slide.

Another lecture well done to get this far. How you doing? Where? I hope this lecture is about the ticket office on how to buy your ticket. The conversation in this lecture is a real life conversation heard at the ticket office. Look at the grammar in the conversation. It will give you an indication off the tone of voice used. Notice the question marks and exclamation marks. They both produce a different pitch and tone in a sentence and conversation. Change your voice to suit the sentence, and don't forget to change your voice to reflect what is being said. Question marks thes will raise the tone of your voice. Exclamation marks indicate excitement, surprise and shock in really every day spoken English. There is a natural flow, which helps to give meaning and emotion to the spoken language. It stops it from being flat on Boren. Read through the conversation aunt, Think about where the stress is placed. Stress is usually placed on the now owns adverbs and adjectives emphasized these words. It will make your spoken English sound natural and interest in. Remember, you do not always have to know the meaning of every word. Pick out the key words you don't know and guess the meaning by watching the speakers. Facial expressions, hand movements, emotional responses, word stress on a pitch of their voice. Read and listen to the following conversation. Do this until you feel confident. Look, listen, read. Say repeat. Listen to the up and down off the words A real conversation heard at the ticket office. Now read along with May pulls the slide to listen to the conversation. Hello. I'd like to buy enough peak return travel card to London. Victoria, please. Hello. That being 942 please. Are you paying by card? Yes. Please put your card in the machine.

Read these allowed. It's a day travel card. The ticket is for the 17th of July, on it cost £9.40 pay. Project work reads the conversation again. Did it sound better this time? Recalled the conversation. Listen to it was easier to read this time. Did you feel more confident? Do you think you sound fluent? Repeat this exercise until you feel confident, Well done for getting this fall student evaluation. I feel I'm progressing well with my study. I'm pleased with my progress. My confidence is improving. My listening skills are improving. My speaking skills are improving. I am keeping my reflective diary up to date. 9. Speak English Lecture 8 Using Contractions: Hello. Welcome back for another lecture. This one is on using contractions. When speaking, contractions were known as short forms and long forms. But now, in recent times there, known as contractions, contractions are, as I said, are also called short forms. On example is Do not is shortened to don't in informal speech. It is natural to short words. It sounds friendly and makes pronunciation easier than using the more formal long form. Short forms should not be confused with slang, which is not correct English and should not be used in written work, formal situations or in examination work. Examples of changing long forms to short forms are you have equals. You've I have to Iive. Oh, I had all right. I am I'm not nut would have would of should have. Should have. Could have could off look through the conversation in lectures. Seven. On underlined the short forms. Read and sound out. The short forms. Look, read, say, repeat and practice saying them aloud. Speak slowly but loudly. Record your voice saying the words. Do this several times until you feel confident here in your own voice, writes them down and learn them. Change The following long form words too. Short forms Remember On apostrophe it means there is a letter missing. Examples are not equals, aren't Cannot is count You do The following could not. Did not, has not have no is not. Must not should not we for back to your notes or your phrase book If you need help two more shall not waas not on the answers are Can't couldn't Didn't. Hasn't haven't isn't mustn't shouldn't Shante. And wasn't how many did you get right grade Your work for every correct answer have 10%. So for one correct answer is 10% for to 20% 3 30%. And so on your skull 10% to 30% are really good. Try 40 to 60 Well done on 70 to 100 is excellent on Make a note of your score in your workbook complete the following sentences Speaketh e answers loudly, clearly and with confidence. Shout them out if it helps change the sentences from long form to short form. I could not find my glasses. You did not put the rubbish out last night. We must not eat too much cake. You should not speak with your mouth full. I cannot drive a coal well. How did you Dough? Well done. Well done. Short form slang. You will often hear English speaking people using a type of short form slang. It is not correct English, but you need to be aware off its use. Words are often shortened and give in on a A a Why or said ending some examples. All Wallner, Meaning Want to Goethe? Meaning got to I ain't has not watch our Hello name. A. Let's May gona going to or gone to Mars tomorrow on footy football project work. Read through an English book or newspaper, and in your workbook, write down all the short forms you can say. Put them back into their long forms. Now practice doing this. Read, say right, until you feel confident that you can shorten, ah longer form a longer world into it. Shorter foam.
