If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head.
If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.
Nelson Mandela

Anna: Hello! People from all over the world come to Washington, D.C. When I’m at work, I love eating lunch outside. I like to watch people walking by. They all look very different. Today, my friend Ashley is eating lunch with me.
Anna: Ashley, today the weather is beautiful, isn’t it?
Ashley: Yes, it is. Ahh. Ooh, we have to return to work!
Anna: No, we have time! Let’s people-watch a little more.
Ashley: Okay.
Anna: Oh, I know her. She works in my office! Keyana, hi! Come and join us!
Keyana: Hi Anna, how are you?
Anna: I’m doing great! Keyana, this is my friend Ashley.
Keyana: Hi, Ashley!
Anna: We need to return to work. But the weather is beautiful and people-watching is fun!
Keyana: I love people-watching too!
Anna: Well, have a seat! It is fun to see how people are different or the same.
Keyana: It is. For example, Anna, you are tall. But Ashley and I are short.
Anna: And Keyana, you and Ashley have brown eyes; I have blue eyes.
Keyana: You two have light skin and I have dark skin.
Anna: Ashley, you have straight hair. Keyana and I have curly hair.
Ashley: You have very curly hair, Anna.
Keyana: I need to return to work. See you, Anna! Nice to meet you Ashley!
Ashley: Bye, Keyana!
Ashley: Anna, I have to go, too. Are you returning to work?
Anna: I still have time. And this sun feels so good!
Ashley: Um, Anna, what does your boss look like?
Anna: She is short. She has straight, light hair.
Ashley: Does she wear glasses?
Anna: Yes. Yes, she does.
Ashley: Is she wearing a blue sweater today?
Anna: How do you know that?
Ashley: She’s coming this way.
Anna: Oh no! Hide me!
Ashley: Um, bye, Anna. Call me later.
Anna: Bye, Ashley! Talk to you later!
Caty: Anna? Is that you?
Anna: Ms. Weaver! Hi!
Caty: What are you doing behind that bench?
Anna: I am looking for my, my … stick. Here it is.
Anna: I am people-watching. Oh! But it’s time to return to work!
Caty: No need to hurry. I love people-watching too! Let’s sit!
Anna: Sure! Ahh.
Caty: It’s a beautiful day, isn’t it?
Anna: Yes. Yes, it is, Ms. Weaver.
Anna: People-watching in D.C. is fun. It makes me forget the time!
Anna: Until next time! Ahh.

Грамматика урока:

Никакой особенной новой грамматики в данном уроке нет. Просто тренируем употребление описательных прилагательных, учимся описывать людей. Наполняем свой словарный запас. 

И помните,  на седьмом уроке мы упоминали конструкцию have to? Попробуйте вспомнить, что означает данное выражение. Получилось?

Если нет, давайте посмотрим в диалоге: 

Keyana: I need to return to work. 
Ashley: Anna, I have to go, too.

Теперь вы наверняка вспомнили, что конструкция have to + глагол в инфинитиве означат форму долженствования - мне нужно, я должна/должен.

Кеяна говорит, что ей нужно вернуться на работу. Эшли вторит ей: мне нужно идти тоже. (частица too в конце предложения переводится как тоже)

Всем хорошего настроения и отличной учебы!
