🍎 Let’s Describe | The Reporter | Themed LIVE English Lesson + Quiz


hello I should be live wonderful all
right let me put my welcome in the comments hello and welcome to this live
English lesson today we’re going to work on our describing skills that’s right so
the title of this lesson is let’s describe the reporter hmm so this
picture will be the basis for the entire lesson there’s lots of opportunity here
for vocabulary and pronunciation let’s take a look so this is a let’s describe
lesson we’re going to do the summary we’re gonna describe the setting we’re
gonna describe the action we’re gonna describe the story and we’re going to
have a quiz and it’s all from this picture right here uh-huh Leila Almeida
says hello in the comments hello hello alright let me adjust something here
wonderful alright so let’s get started with the summary
all right the summary is a short explanation of the picture right so
we’re not giving a lot of details we’re giving just enough to get a good idea of
what’s going on in the picture okay here we go
we can see a partially bald man near some train tracks in the daytime
okay so partially means not completely just partly so we’re going to be talking
about right now we’re talking about a
partially bald man it’s gonna be this guy right all right let’s see someone in
the comments shitty super antenna says hey you are a kind and crazy teacher yes
I am okay so right now we’re talking about this
bald guy and if we put the arrow over I’m pointing right to his bald head
right so we can say partially bald because he has some hair around the
sides right and when we talk about a completely bald person they don’t have
hair at all and right so this guy is near some train tracks so these are the
train tracks just where the the train rides on top of right there steel or
iron okay garden says hello in the comments
hello hello right moving forward he is facing away from us and kneeling down on
his left knee alright so that’s describing how his
legs are right now he’s kneeling down on the left knee he is wearing black pants
a jean jacket and tennis shoes a black bag is hanging over his right
shoulder he’s trying to take a nice picture right
Varick a lagina says hello hello hello hello
alright so let’s do some pronunciation same as always if you’re doing
pronunciation put some apples in the comment lets me know you’re
participating and it’s wonderful here we go repeat after me we can see a
partially bald man near some train tracks in the daytime he is facing away from us and kneeling
down on his left knee he is wearing black pants a jean jacket
and tennis shoes a black bag is hanging over his right
shoulder he’s trying to take a nice picture okay so this is the summary of the
picture not a lot of details but enough to know what’s happening right we have a
good idea of what’s happening in this picture okay so we are going to go even
deeper more details and describe the setting so this is the time the place
the weather the environment right okay Leyla Almeida says kneeling yes
so kneeling is what the guy is doing when we point at his
and his legs he’s kneeling down right so one of his knees is touching the ground
he is kneeling down but only on his left leg okay all right here we go with the
setting the location of this picture is outside
near train tracks all right so we have the train tracks running right here on
both sides of the tracks there is a forest of trees all right so there’s a
lot of trees and we can see on both sides of the tracks okay it is autumn
and most leaves have already fallen off all right autumn is another way to say
fall you know winter spring summer fall or you can say winter spring summer
autumn right okay and most of the leaves have already followed up have already
fallen off the remaining leaves are brown red or orange all right and it’s
very common in the fall depending where you live right what part of the world
you live in but if you’re from where I’m from let’s see I’m from Minnesota
so Minnesota in the fall and let’s look I don’t want to go over
there I want to go to images there we go Minnesota in the fall and it’s it’s
beautiful in the fall in the winter this is where I’m from
the leaves are incredible they’re brown they’re orange they’re red they’re
different shades right so this is where I’m from in the fall and it’s very
common when you drive through the country that you have these beautiful
views right okay so if we go back to the picture I would say it’s probably late
fall here because most they’re highly any leaves on the trees anymore right
all right let’s see we can see a small patch of blue sky in the background
above the trees so let me get my my arrow here and a small patch of blue sky
which means just a small section right so we can see this blue part right here
we could say it’s a patch of blue sky write the word patch can also be used
for clothing right so let’s see if you have pants or something and you have a
rip you might sew on a patch so on a patch all right so if you have a hole in your
clothing you might put a patch on top of it sometimes they have patches with lots
of different designs and pictures and stuff like that but the whole point is
it covers up the hole right or there’s another word for patch a patch work
quilt a quilt is just a blanket but it’s all these different squares sections and
they’re called patches and whoever makes them soules them together and it’s
called a patchwork quilt mmm all right so this is a patchwork quilt
okay let’s see dr. Varick a lagina says oh
and serious soup on terraces today I don’t hear music uh I have it here I
just haven’t turned it on yet mmm I will turn it on but it will be quiet all
right I plist I started the music Varrick a
Louganis says thanks no music your voice is music hmm I think that’s a very nice
compliment I’m gonna play the music because I like it in the background I
think it’s very soothing and relaxing okay so let’s do pronunciation and if
you’re doing pronunciation apples in the comments here we go repeat after me
the location of this picture is outside near train tracks on both sides of the
tracks there is a forest of trees it is autumn and most leaves have
already fallen off the remaining leaves are brown red or
orange oh boy I got a switch the screen back thank you uh-huh
well bye goodness we will do it again Thank You Leah hooter for saying where
is the text in Bukavu Gina right well let’s pretend that never happened
hmm let’s do it again thank you for telling me here we go
this setting repeat after me the location of this picture is outside near
train tracks on both sides of the tracks there is a
forest of trees it is autumn and most leaves have
already fallen off the remaining leaves are brown red or
orange we can see a small patch of blue sky in the background above the trees okay so let’s do more about the setting
here we go whoever took this picture was standing in the middle of the train
tracks behind the man it is probably autumn and the time of
day might be midday or early afternoon the man’s clothes indicate that it is a
bit cool outside all right and the word indicate just means show it’s giving us
information and we’re talking about this guy’s clothing right his clothes and
because he’s wearing like long sleeves long pants makes us think it might be
kind of cool outside so the temperature is not like really cold but it’s not hot
it’s not warm it’s kind of cool all right let’s see Lia Huda says what’s
patched please and I think I explained it but you must have just shown up let’s
see a patch is a small section right so if we look here this section of sky is
just a small section a small piece right and before I had showed a quilt a quilt
this is called a patchwork quilt because it has many patches that are sewn
together all right so let’s go back here we go there are dead leaves scattered
over the ground all right scattered means there are some here there’s some
there there’s some over there everywhere so maybe if you grow up like on a farm
or something and you have the feed that you’re going to feed the chickens you
scatter it you throw it on the ground so the chickens can run around and they can
eat it and they can right they can get it all right okay so
let’s do pronunciation repeat after me before I start serious upon supalen
tanis’s thank you for the music you’re welcome
I like it okay here we go repeat out loud whoever took this picture was
standing in the middle of the train tracks behind the man it is probably autumn and the time of
day might be midday or early afternoon the man’s clothes indicate that it is a
bit cool outside there are dead leaves scattered over the
ground okay and Leila meter says autumn autumn is just another way to say fall
like spring summer fall I’ll show you a picture we take a look
so if we say autumn leaves we’ll have these if we say fall leaves we’ll have
something similar right so autumn is just another way to say fall right right
Leah hooter says autumn the season before winter yes and sometimes they’ll
say fall okay right let’s do some more of the setting
lots of describe the section of tracks that we see in this picture do not bend
and there is no curves or there are no curbs all right so we’re talking about
the tracks right here the train tracks there’s no bend as in there’s no curb a
bend is just another way to say curve where it’s not going straight so if we
try to find a picture we could say a bend in the train tracks all right so if we look at this picture
it gets big we can see that it starts to bend it starts to curve up ahead but in
our picture there is no bend it’s just straight right there are no curbs in the
train tracks the tracks runs straight into the distance right we can say into
the distance ahead of us in front of us and it keeps going until we probably
can’t see anymore the foreground of the picture is covered in a full shadow all
right so we have foreground and we have background right so we could say the
background is kind of blurry but the foreground which is the front foreground
just means the front part of the picture and we can see that there’s a shadow
here this whole section right here is covered in a shadow and up here there’s
no shadow all right perhaps there is a large building on the left side of the
tracks blocking the Sun so if there’s a big building on the left side of the
tracks then that would explain why there is so much shade over here or why the
shadow is so huge because the the building is blocking the Sun okay here we go pronunciation Yahoo
repeat after me the section of tracks that we see in
this picture do not bend and there are no curbs the tracks run straight into the
distance the foreground of the picture is covered
in a full shadow perhaps there is a large building on the left side of the
tracks blocking the Sun okay and I see some apples from Leah
hooter that means doing pronunciation wonderful okay so we just finished the
setting the time the place though the the weather all right now it’s time for
the action hmm this means the people all right here we go the people and the
movement the motion stuff like that here we go
we can see a partially bald man crouching down to the right of the train
tracks okay so crouching down means in this
position all right it doesn’t mean that you’re kneeling necessarily but your
body is down it’s down towards the ground well let’s see if we can find
some pictures of crouched down all right here we go so this guy is crouched down
this guy is crouched down so this is the body position for crouched down right
and Leah hooter says on his knee perhaps yes that’s right he is on his knee all
right let’s see he is kneeling on his left knee for
support right so maybe he’s trying to balance right so he’s holding his camera
and he doesn’t want to shake too much so he puts his knee down he kneels with his
left knee right he’s kneeling for support if we say for support it means
that it helps you stay in your position without shaking
maybe you’re dizzy and you grab the wall or you put your hand on the wall for
support it helps hold you up his hands are holding a camera up to his face
right we can’t see exactly but it’s a pretty safe guess to say that he’s
holding the camera and he’s probably aiming it he’s going to take a picture
the man is in the foreground of the picture and in the shade of the building
on the left side of the tracks all right this is a longer sentence but the man is
in the foreground of the picture but once again foreground is the opposite
of background so if something is in the foreground it’s up close while the
background is farther away and the man is in the shade of the building on the
left side of the tracks so on the left side we can’t see the building but
pretty sure there’s one because it’s completely blocking the Sun Celia Hooda
says most of the photographers take this position while taking the picture sure I
guess maybe it’s a comfortable way and they can be stable if they don’t have
their tripod or something they can hold it and be very steady stable and
comfortable while they take pictures okay wonderful
let’s do pronunciation here we go repeat after me we can see a partially bald man
crouching down to the right of the train tracks he is kneeling on his left knee for
support his hands are holding a camera up to his
face the man is in the foreground of the
picture and in the shade of the building on the left side of the tracks okay so let’s do some more action here
we go the man is wearing a blue jean jacket
black pants and black sports shoes all right so a jean jacket like this think
that used to be very common in the 80s and the 90s I don’t know how common they
are now but when we’re talking about a jean jacket let’s take a look it’s just
the same material that you use from jeans right the pants but they make it
into a jacket and yeah I don’t know how stylish they are now or how popular they
are but I remember when I was younger I had a jean jacket it was comfortable and
warm when it was cool out all right okay so he has a jean jacket black pants and
sports shoes you could say tennis shoes you could say athletic shoes sports
shoes but they’re comfortable and they probably have a very thick sole which is
the bottom part of the shoe his pants are hanging down in the back and we can
almost see his butt crack okay so this is a kind of informal English but it’s a
really good way to describe the guy so when we talk about his butt crack we’re
talking about this right here right so if your pants go down sometimes when so
sometimes when people are a little bit overweight they’re not even always
overweight just when they bend down and they don’t have a belt on then you can
see like their butt crack so it’s very common mm-hmm excuse me for a plumber
plumber butt crack but when the plumber is like underneath or working on
something this is called the butt crack hmm it’s not something we want to see
but sometimes they don’t wear their belt tight enough or they don’t pull their
pants up or something and you see the butt crack ha ha horrible okay let’s see Lia Hooda says we can see
some skin from his back right so it’s right above his bottom or his butt and
just a little bit more we would see his butt crack mm-hmm all right
because it is a cool day he feels a cold draft at his lower back when we talk
about a cold draft we’re talking about a cool breeze so if the wind blows or if
the air is cold because his skin is not covered then it feels he can feel a cold
draft and he probably also feels a cold draft draft on top on top of his head
right because it’s just the skin right there’s no hair to cover it and keep it
warm okay so a cold draft is just a cold breeze of air or cold air right the man
has a large black bag slung over his right shoulder
so if we say slung it’s similar to hanging right so if we look at his right
shoulder which is right here we can see that there is a strap from the black bag
and slung over his shoulder just means it’s hanging from his shoulder mm-hmm
okay all right let’s do some pronunciation
here we go repeat after me the man is wearing a blue jean jacket black pants
and black sports shoes his pants are hanging down in the back
and we can almost see his butt crack because it is a cool day he feels a cold
draft and his lower back the man has a large black bag slung over
his right shoulder okay alright moving forward more to
describe here we go the man is pointing his camera away from
us and preparing to take pictures alright so pointing this means that
you’re making it see towards a certain direction you’re pointing it and there
must be something down here down there that he wants to take a picture of his
bag has a wide shoulder strap which makes it easy to carry alright so this
is the shoulder strap see if we can find a picture and we’ll put a goodbye
goodbye plumber but cracking hello a wide shoulder strap okay so the shoulder
strap is just the part that goes over your shoulder and usually if it’s a
little bit wider it’s more comfortable right let’s see wide shoulder oh that
will try luggage maybe we’ll just do a camera bag camera BAE know this put in camera bank and see
what shows up okay well we’re looking for some straps well I guess we’d use
backpack we could say the straps the black backpack straps if they’re thicker
and wider they’re usually more comfortable okay all right and if it’s a
wide shoulder strap it makes it easier to carry right uh-huh
Leah hooda says it’s more comfortable when the strap the strap is wide right
he’s probably not alone because we’re looking at him right now
so someone else was probably there and took a picture of him and I suppose it’s
possible that he set up a tripod and put the camera on a timer and then took a
picture of himself but maybe kind of unnecessary I’m gonna guess that there’s
some where someone with him there right now in a few moments he’ll probably
stand up and stretch his legs right so if you crouch down for a long time and
if you kneel down for a long time it gets kind of uncomfortable and your your
body your joints your legs that get kind of stiff and difficult to move and he’s
a little bit older I think so he probably gets stiffer easier and quick
more quickly so he’s probably gonna stand up after a while and stretched his
stretch his legs stretch just means to extend them out to their full length
kind of stretch oh yeah feels better all right repeat after me
here we go the man is pointing his camera away from us and preparing to
take pictures his bank has a wide shoulder strap which
makes it easy to carry he’s probably not alone because we’re
looking at him right now in a few moments he’ll probably stand up
and stretch his legs okay so we just finished the action part
oh right garden says he has to pull up his pants
– I agree he should pull up his pants – good point okay let’s do the story hmm a
little bit of information from my imagination about this picture alright
so we described what we can see now I’m going to give you some information about
maybe the history behind this picture here we go
the man’s name is Richard and he’s a reporter for the local newspaper all
right so a reporter you could say a newscaster maybe a correspondent right
so he works for the local newspaper and when you say a local newspaper it could
be a small-town newspaper so maybe it’s not a big city but it’s a smaller paper
or something like that he received a juicy tip from an
anonymous source about a possible drug deal in this location whoa okay so here
we go he received he got someone sent something to him a juicy tip whoo all
right a juicy tip so first a tip is just a small piece of information maybe some
evidence or hey I heard some information you might want to check it out and juicy
means like extra interesting something that you really want to know about so if
it’s a juicy tip oh it’s a great piece of information and I want to know more
about it so he received a juicy tip from an anonymous source okay so a source is
just a person or a place or location where you got the
information right your source could be the Internet
your source could be the dictionary your source could be an encyclopedia your
source could be a person right someone who saw something maybe a witness
however this source is anonymous hmm what does anonymous mean well we have it
went to the dictionary yet in this lesson so let’s go to the dictionary and
we’re gonna look up anonymous and see if there are any synonyms as well all right
let’s do the pronunciation anonymous anonymous one more time anonymous
anonymous okay so of a person not identified by name or of unknown name
right so here we go synonyms unnamed of unknown name nameless incognito
unidentified unknown da da da da so if you have an anonymous source or like a
newspaper or even for maybe a police investigation someone has a piece of
information and they they send it in right maybe they send an email maybe
they write a note or they do something I see what visual show up if we put
anonymous source okay so anonymous source you just don’t
know who it’s from right anonymous means unidentified all
right that’s Laila Almeida says is he an investigator I don’t know I think he’s a
reporter so part of his job is to investigate but it doesn’t look like
he’s part of law enforcement I don’t think he’s from the police department all right and Liahona says anonymous is
not known that’s right okay so he received a juicy tip some information
about a possible drug deal all right so a drug deal is just where the gangs or
whoever the people they sell drugs probably illegal drugs we’re not talking
about Tylenol or panadol we’re talking about marijuana cocaine PCP
methamphetamines all right so he received information about a possible
drug deal in this location Richards last story was about a cat being saved from a
tree so he thought this might be more exciting mm-hmm and when we say Richard
Richards last story so that’s the last story that he wrote for the newspaper
was about about a cat being saved from a tree not very exciting so he thought
that this a possible drug deal might be more exciting that’s why he came here
all right let’s do pronunciation here we go repeat out loud the man’s name is
Richard and he’s a reporter for the local newspaper he received a juicy tip from an
anonymous source about a possible drug deal in this location Richards last story was about a cat
being saved from a tree so he thought this might be more exciting okay so let’s move forward with the
story the city has been having trouble with criminals lately so Richard thought
he would investigate and write a news story hmm
so we have investigate and if you investigate it doesn’t necessarily mean
that you are investigator but investigate just means to look for
information right to get information and find do research stuff like that so his
way of investigating is to come here and witness things see things and take
pictures and then eventually if he thinks the information is good he will
write a news story that will appear in the newspaper he came alone to this
location about three hours ago hmm he came alone we don’t know if that’s a
good idea Richard was about to leave but noticed
some people and vehicles moving farther down the tracks hmm
so he was thinking oh man I’ve been here for so long nothing’s happening I’m
gonna take off and all of a sudden he heard he noticed he saw right he
perceived he’s used his eyes and he or he heard or he saw something he took in
the information some people and vehicles but could be cars trucks motorcycles
something like that moving farther down the tracks a ways up ways down the
tracks okay all right repeat after me
the city has been having trouble with criminals lately so Richard thought he
would investigate and write a news story he came alone to this location about
three hours ago richard was about to leave but noticed
some people and vehicles moving farther down the tracks okay moving forward here we go Richard
saw some men with guns farther down the train tracks and raised his camera hmm
so he probably wants to take pictures uh-huh ooh and I see lots of apples in
the comments great guys are doing pronunciation wonderful suddenly a voice
behind him said don’t move buddy okay so we don’t know what person but
suddenly immediately suddenly unexpectedly he heard a voice saying
don’t move buddy Richard’s heart jumped into his throat
and he froze hmm so here’s the interesting saying if your heart jumps
into your throat it means suddenly you’re freaked out you’re scared like
crazy you’re shocked and if you freeze you mean suddenly it’s like you’re
paralyzed you can’t move you’re just stuck you’re froze with fear so it’s a
fairly common saying that that his heart jumped into his throat or her heart
jumped into her throat and it’s not literal right it doesn’t actually happen
but it’s a sane to express or to communicate someone is shocked like
freaked out really scared right and it just means her heart is probably beating
really fast thump-thump thump-thump thump-thump
right is it really nervous and scared unfortunately Richard was never seen or
heard from again hmm Lea who – says gate gangster behind
the poor photographer mm-hmm I think Richard got in over his head
that’s a nice idiom to get in over your head means that you get involved in a
situation that you’re not prepared for it’s too much for you to handle okay
so Richard was never seen or her from again and heard from just means
nobody has communicated with him since it’s like poof he disappeared hmm all
right let’s do pronunciation and then we’re gonna get to the quiz that’s right
repeat after me Richard saw some men with guns farther down the train tracks
and raised his camera suddenly a voice behind him said don’t
move buddy Richard Richard Hart jumped into his throat and he froze unfortunately Richard was never seen or
heard from again and if you hear this that someone was
never seen or heard from again it’s another way as they disappeared right
whether someone kidnapped them abducted them stole them made them go where they
didn’t want to or maybe they’re just hiding and they disappeared okay
all right so we just finished the story behind this picture all right so the
reporter taking a picture like Leah hooda says the gangster behind the poor
photographer don’t move buddy all right guard who says rip our IP rest
in peace mm-hmm oh boy it’s time for a quiz hmm Varick a lukina says wow what a
sad story yes and and maybe you sad relaxing music to listen to at the same
time ah but now we get more excited because we have a quiz ah I gotta put on
my glasses what am I thinking all right I’m focused ready to go
question number one what does the man probably
have inside his bag a camera equipment and lenses be a laptop computer and milk
see extra clothes in a flashlight D groceries and a birthday gift right what
do you think let’s hear the music you you okay what does the man probably have
inside his bag well a is the best answer camera equipment and lenses all right
let’s take a look at the word lenses to make sure we understand what it means so
if we look for camera lenses okay so camera lens is there we go so we’re not
talking about the camera on your iPhone or your samsung phone this is like a
serious camera right and you have all these different lenses or whatever
situation that you want telephoto lenses zooming in just getting the perfect
picture that you want so these are camera lenses right okay let’s go back
all right let’s see so let’s take a look at the wrong answers a laptop computer
well that’s possible and milk probably not so much I would guess that he has
maybe a bottle of water if anything but he might not want his lenses to get wet
right so he might not put definitely not milk extra clothes and a flashlight well
that’s possible but because we can look at the picture and see what he’s doing
and holding in his hands and a sounds better groceries and a birthday gift
well that sounds nice but probably not if he bought groceries he wouldn’t bring
them all the way out here okay here we go
question number two there is a small hmm of sky above the trees
a batch B hatch C patch or D latch hmm what do you think you okay so here we go there is a small
patch of sky above the trees so we talked about patch before it’s just a
small section right let’s take a look at the wrong answers just so we can get a
good idea of what they are I mean all these answers rhyme which means they
sound alike but they all have quite different meanings so let’s see a batch
it’s very common to say like a batch of cookies so a batch of something is just
like a group of something right a batch of cookies something like that another
one was a latch latch is something that you use to keep a door closed right so
okay when you leave remember to close the latch something like that and let’s
see we had hatch as well hatch I think hatch is just a brand name oh
I’m sorry it could be a verb the egg will hatch hatch an egg right so if an
egg hatches then we treat the chicken comes out or the bird comes out so an
egg hatches I’ve already heard it to close the hatch uh-huh like a submarine hatch here we go there you go so this is like a hatch one
kind of hatch and it’s watertight right so they close it they turn the wheel and
it’s super tight so it doesn’t let water in so this can be a hatch okay go back
alright so the answer is C there is a small patch of sky above the trees
question number three ooh two parts on this one the man is wearing a hmm
because it is hmm outside a mean jacket spicy B jean jacket cool
C cool jacket warm the creepy jacket fresh what do you think you okay so the man is wearing a jean jacket
because it is cool outside all right so we talked about the temperature that
it’s in the autumn it’s fall so the leaves are either off the trees or just
brown leaves left and it’s cool outside so it’s kind of cold and he’s wearing a
jean jacket that’s just the kind of jacket he’s wearing right there all
right a mean jacket doesn’t really make any sense and spicy it’s spicy outside
spicy we’re gonna be using for food hmm Lia who de says what’s the difference
between cold and cool well we’re both taught they’re both talking about
temperature right so cold you see if you tell me that you have
cold water and then you tell me that you have cool water I will understand that
the the cold water has a lower temperature in the cool water is not
quite as cold as the cold water does that make sense so if I say it’s
cool the weather outside it’s not really cold yet but it’s not warm either so
cold is like a lower temperature cold means it is colder it’s it’s gonna be
real cold and like who you probably need a thicker jacket if it’s just cool
weather out maybe you put on a sweater or a light jacket but yeah so cool is
like a higher temperature than cold see Varick colleague Anna says cold is minus
2 minus 3 cool that means plus 10 plus 11 plus 12 sure it’s possible and it
depends where you’re from right so let’s see some people that are from like a
tropical country they might come to my home where I’m from in Minnesota like in
Minnesota winter and you’d say this is cold right you would not say this is
cool say this is freezing cold right and I found usually that people that are
from a colder temperature they can withstand they can handle the cold
weather much easier and when they go to a hot temperature sometimes it’s
difficult but right ok so let’s move forward here we are let’s see a cool
jacket warm oh not doesn’t quite work as if it’s cool outside here a cool jacket
would mean like it’s like yes it’s awesome it’s cool it’s a wonderful
jacket and we didn’t say that it was warm outside we said it was cool a
creepy jacket which means kind of like a scary jacket or a weird jacket does it
really make sense and fresh well it might be fresh might be have a fresh
smell in the air but fresh would probably be more with spring with new
flowers maybe in the summer Varick a lagina says I am from Russia
the winter is minus 30 – 45 uh-huh yes all right so let’s go to question number
four the last news story Richard wrote was about a an ecstatic cat be a violent
cat see a happy cat or D a distressed cat hmm what do you think okay so the last news story Richard
wrote about hmm this question is a little more difficult okay so here we go
the answer the last news story Richard wrote about was a distressed cat hmm
okay so first what does the word distressed me it means like upset
something’s wrong you’re stressed out you’re frustrated
maybe you’re scared maybe you’re upset something’s wrong so if you remember
from the story the last story that he wrote about was a cat that was stuck in
a tree or they had to save a cat from a tree so the cat might have been like a
kitten or something and was up in the tree it was scared to come down so it
was probably distressed right let’s take a look we’ll look at distressed in the
dictionary to make sure that we know it means and so there may be there will be
some synonyms okay distressed distressed okay distressed means suffering from
anxiety sorrow or pain hmm it could also be impoverished of furniture leather
clothing having simulated marks of age and we’re okay well in our situation
we’re looking for anxiety nervousness stress sorrow or pain okay so we’re
talking about the cat right all the choices are the cat and this last story
he wrote about was the cat that was stuck in the tree okay very cool Agena
says yeah I’m right okay all right so an ecstatic cat just means a really happy
cat like super happy but that doesn’t work a violent cat a cat that wants to
hurt people or hurt things not and a happy cat no we were looking for
distressed cat because the cat was stuck in the tree and couldn’t get out all
right question number five there we go why was Richard never seen or heard from
again eh he was congratulated B he was abducted C he was promoted D he was
depressed what do you think here we go you okay
why was Richard never seen or heard from again
we have to pick the answer which works best in the situation and the answer is
B he was abducted hmm abducted is another word for kidnapped right and
let’s just make sure we all understand what abducted means all right so it’s
the verb to abduct abduct abduct okay take someone away illegally by force or
deception kidnap right so you force someone to go somewhere with against
their will and so abducted all right abducted is the only one that works
because he was congratulated means that they’re like hey way to go
congratulations wonderful but that doesn’t fit he was promoted well that
would mean that he was seen and heard from because if he was promoted he would
still be working and he got a higher position so that doesn’t work and he was
depressed well as possible especially if you’re kidnapped that would probably
make you depressed or a when you’re abducted but that’s not the best answer
mm-hmm so the best answer we have here was he was abducted remember the last
thing he heard was a voice that said what is it don’t move buddy
right the gangster uh-huh okay so we just completed the quiz wonderful all
right let’s review what did we cover in this lesson well in this lesson we this
