I dont think thats right... I dont think so. You must be mistaken... No, you are wrong thinking about... Im afraid youre wrong...? Arent you confusing...? Im not so sure about that... Surely it must be... Yes, you are right, but... I believe that youve got it right. Yes, I agree with you. Sentence patterns: </li> <li> Slide 45 </li> <li> Speaking Sample dialogues: Situation 1: A: I dont think learning a language is so difficult. When you live in a country where you speak that language, you can hear it and practise it every day. B: well, that would certainly be helpful, but not everybody can go abroad. Besides, it should be possible to learn a language well before going to another country. C: I agree with A. B: I think it depends on yourself. Of course you have to spend enough time on learning. D: Do you think its a matter of time? B: Yes. You are right. Time is the most important. The more time you take to practise, the better youll be. A: That depends on you. Its hard to tell, but for easy languages such as English you can learn a lot in only a few hundred hours. </li> <li> Slide 46 </li> <li> D: Some people spend a whole lifetime without really learning much. C: Very funny! It sounds nice, but some languages are too difficult. Take Chinese, for example, how many hours does it take to learn that? B: Yes. Thats a good example. Chinese takes perhaps four or five times more time to learn than English or Spanish. D: You mean for somebody whose language isnt English or Chinese? B: Exactly. C: I disagree. I think you are wrong thinking that it will take anyone a short time to learn English, but a long time to learn Chinese. Both English and Chinese are very different. Thats why it takes Englishmen a long time to learn Chinese. But then it should work the other way around as well. Because they are so different, it will take Chinese people four times more time to learn English than for example somebody who speaks Spanish. </li> <li> Slide 47 </li> <li> Situation 2: A: Of course it is easy to learn geography by reading a book and studying a map. You just look at the map and remember where places are. Its as simple as that. B: Im not so sure about that. I havent really thought about it before, but I think the only geography I know very well is that of China. Of other countries I have some idea where places are, but it feels different from the way I know it for China. A: Surely it must be possible to learn it from maps. How else can you teach geography? C: Well. It sounds as if both of you are right, in a way. I agree that what you can learn from a map is not exactly the same as when you go somewhere. </li> <li> Slide 48 </li> <li> A: Oh heres another. Dont you think you can study a map and then find your way through the mountains? There, you see. D: Yes, you are right, but you wouldnt really know where the mountains are, how high they are and how broad. Isnt that what you are think of? B: Yes, you are right. C: Of course it should be like that. After all, maps are only representations of the country. They are a bit like a model. D: I believe youve got it right. Maps are not the real thing. You cannot learn everything from books. You have to experience things to make it real and meaningful. </li> </ul>
