Hey, what’s up?!
It has been a busy week here with lots of activity and new starts. New students coming. Halloween party planning. etc….. etc…….
I love it when there is lots to do and I am faced with many new challenges and adventures.
Last week I asked you to fill in the blanks on a telephone conversation. Please see below for one example.
A: Hello. ABC Company. How may I help you?
B: Hello. I would like to speak with Mr. X in the marketing department, please.
A: Yes, you would like to speak to Mr. X in marketing. May I have your name please?
B: Yes, it is Bond, James Bond. I work with MI6 in London.
A: Please hold the line. I will transfer your call.
B: Thank you.
C: Hello. Marketing Department. Mr. X speaking.
B: Hello Mr. X. This is James Bond calling.
C: Oh, yes. Thank you for calling me back Mr. L. I wanted to ask you if you were free to have a meeting this Friday in the morning.
B: Yes, what time would suit you?
C: Are you available at 9:00 on Friday morning?
B: No, I am afraid that I am tied up at that time. How about 11:00?
C: Yes, that would suit me. Could you come to my office at that time?
B: Yes, certainly.
C: Great. So, I will see you on Friday at 10. Thank you.
B: I look forward to seeing you on Friday. Thank you and good- bye.
C: Good bye.
How did you do? There are many different ways to have this conversation so if yours was a little different it is also OK.
For today, I have another challenge for you!
The use of USED TO and WOULD referring to past usual activities that do not happen now.
When I was a child, we used to go to the cottage and we used to go swimming and hiking.
When I was a child, we would go to the cottage and we would go swimming and hiking.
USED TO is used for __________________________________________.
WOULD is used for ___________________________________________.
Good luck and see you next time.
Don’t forget that our HALLOWEEN party will be on SATURDAY OCTOBER 29th. See you there!!
