triangle Listen & Repeat 듣고 따라하기 Escuchar y repetir [ ? ]

Listen & Repeat


This activity has two purposes.

The first purpose is to improve listening accuracy. Learners can often understand the general meaning of a video but still not hear and understand many of the words that are said. This is because native speakers tend to say the functional words unclearly. (eg. don’t know, going to, want to, can’t, must have) This activity is designed to help learners improve their ability to hear these words.

TIP: Learners should listen, and then try to repeat exactly what they hear. Then they should click “Show” and read the sentence. After reading the sentence, learners should listen again and try to hear each word.

The second purpose is to improve pronunciation.

TIP: Learners should listen to and read the sentences at the same time. Then learners should try to copy the pronunciation and intonation of the speaker exactly.

TIP: Exaggerating the intonation and feeling of the speaker is useful. It may feel awkward or funny, but it will help you sound more natural.

Escuchar y Repetir

Esta actividad tiene dos propósitos separados.

El primer propósito es mejorar la precisión auditiva. Los estudiantes a menudo pueden comprender el significado general de un video, pero aún no escuchan ni comprenden muchas de las palabras que se dicen. En particular, los hablantes nativos tienden a decir las palabras funcionales (p. Ej., No sé, voy a, quiero, no puedo, debe haberlo hecho) de manera poco clara. Esta actividad está diseñada para ayudar a los alumnos a mejorar su capacidad para escuchar estas palabras.

CONSEJO: Los alumnos deben escuchar y luego intentar repetir exactamente lo que se dijo. Luego deben hacer clic en "Show" y leer la oración. Después de leer la oración, los alumnos deben volver a escuchar e intentar escuchar cada palabra.

El segundo propósito es mejorar la pronunciación.

CONSEJO: Los alumnos deben escuchar y leer las oraciones al mismo tiempo. Luego, los alumnos deben intentar copiar la pronunciación y la entonación del hablante.

CONSEJO: Es útil exagerar la entonación y el sentimiento del hablante. Puede parecer incómodo o divertido, pero te ayudará a sonar más natural.

듣고 따라하기

이 액티비티에는 두 가지 목적이 있습니다.

첫 번째 목적은 청취 정확도를 높이는 것입니다. 학생들은 종종 비디오의 일반적인 의미를 이해할 수 있지만 여전히 많은 단어를 듣고 이해하지 못합니다. 특히 원어민은 기능적 단어 (예 : 모르겠다, 갈 것, 갖고 싶어, 가질 수 없어야 한다)를 불분명하게 말하는 경향이 있습니다. 이 액티비티는 학습자가 이러한 단어를 듣는 능력을 향상시킬 수 있도록 고안되었습니다.

팁 : 학습자는 듣고 나서 말한 내용을 정확하게 반복해야 합니다. 그들은“Show”를 클릭하고 문장을 읽어야 합니다. 문장을 읽은 후 학습자는 다시 듣고 각 단어를 들어야 합니다.

두 번째 목적은 발음을 향상시키는 것입니다.

팁 : 학습자는 동시에 문장을 듣고 읽어야 합니다. 그런 다음 학습자는 화자의 발음과 억양을 따라 해 보아야 합니다.

팁 : 화자의 억양과 느낌을 과장하는 것이 유용합니다. 어색하거나 재미있게 느껴질 수 있지만 더 자연스럽게 들리는 데 도움이 됩니다.

Clip 1

I didn't even know they had an Employee of the Month thing here.



Clip 2

I don't know, Jen, sometimes I think it's because I just want it so damn much!



Clip 3

And yet, to a casual observer, it would appear that you do very little around here.



Clip 4

They must have seen through that.



Clip 5

I think someone up there must have sensed something in me.



Clip 6

I thought I needed some new furniture, so I got some stuff from upstairs.



Clip 7

Every Employee of the Month has to give a speech in their area of expertise.



Clip 8

You know what, Jen? I'm actually... I'm snowed under here.



Clip 9

Oh, what are we doing?!



Clip 10

You have to. I can't do it.



Clip 11

She will know something is up if I do it. You have to do it.



Clip 12

Well, I suppose we could write the speech so that, you know, you look like you know what you're talking about.



Clip 13

So now you understand why we have to write that speech for Jen.

triangle Script 대본 Texto


Roy: Wow! That's quite something. Quite an honour.

Jen: I know.

Roy: They must be very impressed with you.

Jen: I didn't even know they had an Employee of the Month thing here.

Roy: Really? I thought you won it once.

Jen: No, everyone thought I was dead.

Roy: Aha.

Jen: Employee of the Month.

Roy: Yeah, it's a valued title.

Jen: Have you ever won it?

Roy: Er, no. No, I haven't. I don't know, Jen, sometimes I think it's because I just want it so damn much!

Jen: I am the Employee of the Month.

Roy: And yet, to a casual observer, it would appear that you do very little around here.

Jen: Yeah. They must have seen through that. I think someone up there must have sensed something in me, something I've always known was there - a greatness?

Jen: Sit down.

Moss: Is this a new desk?

Jen: Yeah. I thought I needed some new furniture, so I got some stuff from upstairs. Sit down please.

Moss: So, what's your speech going to be about?

Jen: What speech?

Moss: Every Employee of the Month has to give a speech in their area of expertise.

Roy: Which for you is "compu-ters".

Jen: Where do I have to--?

Moss: At the monthly shareholders' meeting.

Jen: When do I have to...?

Moss: Friday.

Jen: What time...?

Moss: Morning.

Jen: I think maybe it'd be a good idea if you two contributed to this.

Roy: Oh, yeah? Why?

Jen: I think it would give you experience in writing a speech for a public figure.

Roy: Well, obviously, in our line of work that would be handy. But you know what, Jen? I'm actually snowed under here.

Roy: Wait a second. Wait a second! Oh! Oh, what are we doing?!

Moss: Huh?

Roy: We should totally write that speech!

Moss: What? Why?

Roy: OK, offer to write the speech for Jen.

Moss: No.

Roy: You have to. I can't do it. She'll know something's up if I do it. You have to do it.

Moss: Why would I do that?

Roy: Moss, do you trust me?

Moss: No.

Roy: If you trust me, then offer to write that speech.

Moss: I. Don't. Trust. You.

Moss: Hello?

Jen: I feel really bad, having all the fun writing this speech.

Moss: Do it. Offer, offer, offer.

Moss: Well, I suppose we could write the speech so that, you know, you look like you know what you're talking about.

Jen: Thanks. I'm off for lunch. Leave it on my desk.

Moss: My God!

Roy: I know.

Moss: That's brilliant!

Roy: So now you understand why we have to write that speech for Jen.

Moss: She will say anything we tell her to.

Roy: She will say anything we tell her to. We can put any old bollocks in that speech, and she shall repeat it. It's going to be hilarious.

Moss: Sometimes I could kiss your mind, Roy!
