购物 (3) Shopping (3)


LEE KEE: Welcome to another programme in the series 'Say It Again'. My name is Lee Kee. Are you surprised to hear me? I thought it would be different if I introduced Ruth! Welcome, Ruth.

RUTH: Hello, Lee Kee. I am pleased to be here with you on 'Say It Again'.

LEE KEE: You always ask me something about myself. This week, for a change, I thought it would be different for me to ask you some questions! So Ruth, please tell me a little bit about yourself.

RUTH: Well, I've lived in England all my life. I'm married to John and I have a little boy called Daniel.

LEE KEE: How many brothers and sisters do you have?

RUTH: I have three sisters but no brothers.

RUTH: That was fun - I enjoyed Lee Kee asking the questions. I was going to ask her about our drama from last week but if you remember, she wasn't here, so I'll have to tell Lee Kee about it instead. It was all about the shopping that Grace and Paul bought in preparation for Grace's birthday party. Let's hear it again. Listen out for some of the things that Bela practised last week. We talked about 'dozen' and we reminded ourselves that a dozen is twelve. Listen out today for how much meat they bought and all the references to 'dozen'.

Conversation

RUTH: Lee Kee, did you notice what quantity of rolls Grace and Paul asked for?

LEE KEE: I think that quantity means 'how many'. So I think that they asked for two dozen white bread rolls and two dozen brown bread rolls. That is in total 48 bread rolls. Is that right?

RUTH: Exactly! Can you remember how many bottles of lemonade they bought?

LEE KEE: Was it half a dozen?

RUTH: That's right. 'Half a dozen' is six. Can you think of something else you might buy half a dozen of, Lee Kee?

LEE KEE: Here in England we buy our eggs in boxes of either half a dozen or a dozen.

RUTH: Yes! In some supermarkets you can buy 18 eggs in a packet - that's a dozen and a half. Sometimes it can be difficult working out your 12 times table. Bela and I talked about this in our last programme.

RUTH: Let's change from numbers to talk about weight. How did Grace and Paul buy their meat?

LEE KEE: I remember they bought it cooked. I think they said 'roasted and sliced'. They asked for it by weight. Paul asked for a pound of roast pork. Is roast pork meat that is cooked in an oven?

RUTH: Yes it is. Any meat that is 'roasted' is cooked in the oven. Let's listen to that part of the drama again.

Conversation

RUTH: Do you know what the word 'delicatessen' means, Lee Kee?

LEE KEE: It's a type of shop. In supermarkets here in England, they have a separate counter called the 'delicatessen counter', and on it, they sell unusual or foreign food, like roast ham or maybe salami or different types of pat?.

RUTH: It's often on the delicatessen counter that I can buy Chinese spring rolls. They are a favourite for many people.

RUTH: We need to practice some of the phrases we've been talking about. I'll say the sentences first, why don't you say them after me with Lee Kee? 'How many white rolls did Grace buy?'

LEE KEE: 'How many white rolls did Grace buy?'

RUTH: 'Two dozen white rolls and two dozen brown rolls, please.'

LEE KEE: 'Two dozen white rolls and two dozen brown rolls, please.'

RUTH: 'I would like one pound of roast pork, please.'

LEE KEE: 'I would like one pound of roast pork, please.'

RUTH: We'll practice these phrases again at the end of today's programme.

RUTH: Now we have a true story. Harold Conell is from America. Today, it's the second and last part of Harold's story. Harold's life seemed almost destroyed. And yet even at the very depths of his life, he remembered God. Listen to how Harold's life was changed. Harold's story is being read by Andrew.

Story Testimony

How could this have happened? I had been sent to prison for a crime I didn't commit.

When I got to prison, I was very ill, so I was admitted to the prison hospital wing. It was there that I knew that God would use me, during my time in that prison.

A few years previously, I'd had everything a man could wish for: a lovely wife and family, new home, new cars, an excellent job - working as a salesman with an investment firm. Because I was good at what I did, I was very successful. Then one day, a federal marshal walked into the office with a cease-and-desist order and my world started to fall apart. Unknown to any of the workforce, the company had been under investigation by a government agency. One day, I had a heart attack, and had to go to hospital. While I was in there, the company director's wife resigned, and they put my name in her place as company treasurer. I didn't know about this, and basically this meant that if anything concerning their illegal dealings was discovered, that I could be used as a scapegoat.

They were found out, and so in February of that year, I was charged along with the owners, on twenty one counts of fraud and other violations. The trial was long and tedious, but the jury found me not guilty on all counts. The judge, however, said that if they found one man to be guilty, then they must find all three of us guilty! So, I went to prison.

Once there however, I found that I had a real ministry in helping the other inmates to get to know God and his love for them. It was in this way that I helped bring over one hundred people to know and accept the living God as their own personal Saviour.

RUTH: Over the last few programmes, we've talked a lot about food. Something else we've practised is making lists. In this shopping game, Lee Kee and I are talking about both. I'll start and I'll explain the rules as we play the game. As the starter I say, 'I went shopping and I bought a jar of jam.' Lee Kee now has to repeat what I've said and add onto the list some shopping of her own.

LEE KEE: 'I went shopping and bought a jar of jam and a can of coke.'

RUTH: I then have to repeat that sentence and add another shopping item. So I say, 'I went shopping and I bought a jar of jam, a can of coke and a packet of bread rolls.'

LEE KEE: So I now say, 'I went shopping and I bought a jar of jam, a can of coke, a packet of bread rolls and a bottle of fruit squash.'

RUTH: Did you notice that Lee Kee and I were not saying exactly the same as each other? Can you remember when we talked about making lists? When you make a list, you add the word 'and' just before the last item. Let me repeat the last shopping list Lee Kee said. 'I went shopping and I bought a jar of jam, a can of coke, a packet of bread rolls and a bottle of fruit squash.' This is a good game to play with your friends. You can also play it by starting with the sentence 'I went out on my cycle'. Or you could start by saying, 'I went out for a walk and saw...' I'm sure there are lots of things you could see.

RUTH: As always, there is a little time left to practice the sentences we were talking earlier. I'll say them first and you can repeat them after me with Lee Kee 'How many white rolls did Grace buy?'

LEE KEE: 'How many white rolls did Grace buy?'

RUTH: 'Two dozen white rolls and two dozen brown rolls, please.'

LEE KEE: 'Two dozen white rolls and two dozen brown rolls, please.'

RUTH: 'I would like one pound of roast pork, please.'

LEE KEE: 'I would like one pound of roast pork, please.'

RUTH: Don't forget you can also shorten the 'I would' to 'I'd'. That was something we practised in an earlier 'Say It Again' programme. So here we are at the end of another 'Say It Again'. Lee Kee and I hope that you've enjoyed spending this time with us. Please join us again next time. Until then goodbye from Lee Kee and me.

BOTH: Goodbye.
