This week, we’re talking about birthdays and birthday party in English. Now yesterday we found out who is a September baby. Do you remember who? I hope you do. Well friends, our lesson today is called getting a present.
Well, here is your Find It question for today: who is Amy buying a present for?
今天开场时,Andrea老师说本周我们学习关于生日和生日聚会的句法。昨天我们知道了谁是九月婴儿,我们今天的课程叫做收到一件礼物,今天的问题是:Amy买礼物发送给谁?

今天的Information Desk,还是这些相关的词。
1、present  n.礼物
2、pick out  挑选出
3、guy    n.人;家伙
4、T-shirt   n.T恤(短袖圆领运动衫)
5、prepare   v.准备;使。。。准备好

Conversation A
Amy: Hi, Jason! Can you help me?
Jason: Sure.
Amy: I need a birthday present for a friend. Can you help me pick out something?
Jason: Is your friend a girl or a boy?
Amy: He is a guy. What do guys like?
Jason: Tell me more about your friend. When is his birthday?
Amy: It’s September 30th.
Jason: Really? How do you know this friend?
Amy: He works here at the mall.
Tom老师在此讲了present、pick out、guy等的简单用法。What present will you get for your friend on their birthday?
be friend with somebody.和某人做朋友

Conversation B
Jason: What does he look like? Is he tall?
Amy: Yes. What do you think about this T-shirt?
Jason: It’s nice.
Amy: Oh maybe I should get something else.
Jason: How about this artwork?
Amy: Maybe. Or what do you think about this hat?
Jason: I like that hat.
Amy: How about this cup.
Jason: I like everything. Thanks for buying a brithday present for me.
Andrea老师继续讲课中。A T-shirt is something you wear on top part of your body.
讲到了T-shirt,顺便记另一个词:sleeve  名词,袖子

Conversation C
Amy: A birthday present for you?
Jason: Oh, you aren’t buying a present for me.
Amy: Well, just kidding. I am buyina a present for you. Your birthday is tomorrow. Emma told me.
Jason: Thanks Amy.
Amy: You’re welcome. I also need to prepare some games for the party. Emma asked me to help.
Jason: Great. I’m really looking forward to this party.
Amy: Me too. Happy early birthday, Jason.
本段给出来本课Find It问题的答案,Amy is buying a present for Jason.
本段还提到了happy early birthday,如果别人的生日并非今天而又快马上来了,你可以提前跟他她这样说。如果别人的生日已经错过了,你仍要给他她祝福,可以说Happy belated birthday. 此处,belated是“误期的,迟到的”意思。

Christina老师在Information Desk讲了else的用法。一是放在something/anything这些不定代名词之后,另一种是放在who/what/when/where等疑问词之后。
artwork,名词,艺术品、美术品。常用a piece of artwork,一般都要有piece。

今天的Super Sentence讲了Can you help me 的用法。Calendar Phrase讲的是I’m looking for a birthday present.我正在找一样生日礼物。

经过周日的休息,我们的大家说英语节目又要继续了,今天是周一。

We’re learning how to talk about birthday and birthday party for the next few days together.The title of today’s lesson is “a September baby”.Now I wonder who is a September baby? Well, we’ll find out in our lesson today. I do have something for you to find it, here it’s your Find It question: What do all September babies get?一开场,Andrea老师就表明了接下来几天,我们将一起学习如何表达生日和生日聚会的相关事情。

接下来在Information Desk,Christina老师给大家预习一些本课的单词。Let’s take a look at some keywords.这是老师常说的一句话。
1、birthday n.生日
2、party n.宴会、聚会、派对
3、invitation n.邀请函 属于invite家族的词
4、gift n.礼物
5、free adj.免费的
还有个组合也比较常见,buy one get one free, 就是“买一送一”的意思。

今天的对话正式开始了。
Comversation A
Emma: Jason, when is your birthday?
Jason: My birthday is September 30th.
Emma: Great, I’m inviting you to a birthday party. It is at Jungle Cafe.
Jason: Is the party for me?
Emma: Well, the party is for all September babies.
Jason: Who?
Emma: Many people have birthdays in September. We call them “September babies”.
Jason: Then, I’m a September baby.
Emma: Great, here is the invitation.
Tom又来给大家讲析了,结果他说他自己也是个September baby。当Andrea问Tom你过了你的生日了吗,她说Tom, did you already have your September birthday?
birthday: is the day you were born.
Every year you have a birthday, and with every birthday,you get a year older.

Conversation B
Emma: To all Jungle Cafe friends:
Come to a fun birthday party for September babies. If your birthday in September, then come and bring your friends.
Who: September babies, their families and friends.
Where: Jungle Cafe.
Whem: September 30th, at 6:30 P.M.
Dinner is only $12.99 per person. All September babies get a birthday gift.Come for great food and fun.
站长听完这一段对话,有个新的发现,Emma在讲$12.99时,说的是twelve ninety nine,并没有讲dollars和point。
Andrea说We found the answer to today’s question on the invitation.本段也提供了今天问题的答案,All September babies get a birthday gift.
老师也提到了gift card,就是相当于你在店里消费用的钞票礼品卡。

Conversation C
Jason: So each person pays for his dinner?
Emma: Yes, but the birthday cake and gift are free.
Jason: Well, I like cake and gifts. OK, I can come.
Emma: Wonderful! Bring your friends too.
Jason: OK! I’m looking forward to the party.
Emma: Me too.
Jason: Thanks Emma.
Emma: You’re welcome. See you at the party.
这次讲解时,Tom把$12.99讲成了twelve dollars and ninety nine cents.

再次来到Information Desk,Christina老师强调了序数词的用法,除了first second third之外,其它数字都要在词尾加上th表示“第XX”,而且还专门强调了这个发音。
look forward to之后可以名词或动名词。

Word Power记录:This week, we’re learning about birthdays. When is your birthday? How will you celebrate it? Let’s talk about birthdays.
How will you celebrate your birthdays? Many people have a party to celebrate their birthday. Parties are fun. At birthday parties, you often see lots of balloons. The balloons can be different colors, red blue orange,,, so many colors.
A good cake can make a birthday party even better. What’s your favorite kind of cake? Mine is chocolate. How old will you be on your next birthday? I’ll be 28 years old. So I’ll have 28 candles on my cake.There is one candle for each year on my cake. My friends sing the birthday song to me. After they sing, I blow out all of my candles.
Wow, look at all the presents. Are these all for me? Opening presents is fun. Thank you for all the presents. Birthday parties are a lot of fun, and learning birthday words is fun too. Remember all these words, and you have word power.
这一段话,站长竟然在记录candle的时候,多次写错,最后无耐还是查了查词典,真是太衰了,长时间不抄笔写字,站长的英文字和中文字一样变得生疏了,这点要当心。
还要记得的一个动词组合是blow out,是吹熄的意思。其它的present/balloon之类记住即可。

最后的Calendar Phrase提供的是Happy birthday.估计国人全都认识这个吧。See you!
