动词 (1) Verb (1)

RUTH: Hello and welcome to another programme in the series 'Say It Again'. My name is Ruth. I hope that you will stay with Lee Kee and me until the end of today's programme. Yes, I said Lee Kee. She has taken Aries' place today as my student. Lee Kee is also from Singapore. Lee Kee, were you born in Singapore?

LEE KEE: Yes, I was borne in Singapore about 43 years ago.

RUTH: Thank you. And are your family still there?

LEE KEE: Yes, I have a mother at home, with a brother and three other sisters, of which three of my sisters are married.

RUTH: And how long since you came over from Singapore?

LEE KEE: I've been in England for 14 years now.

RUTH: Lovely, and I'm sure that we'll be hearing more from you over the next few weeks.

LEE KEE: Yes, I'm looking forward to being with you over the next few weeks.

RUTH: There will be a chance to hear more from Lee Kee later in the programme. But first, it's Grace and Jim. They just don't seem to change, do they? Listen to this short piece from today's drama.


RUTH: Clothes! Yes, Grace is still talking about clothes. Grace and Jim are talking together about an English wedding they've been invited to. It will be in a few weeks' time. So it takes place in the future. 'It will be.' 'It will happen.' In English, when we talk about the future, we say it 'will be'. Listen then to the drama. Listen out for all the 'will' sentences.


RUTH: Lee Kee, did you notice whom Robert will marry?

LEE KEE: Yes, Ruth I did. Jim said that Robert will marry Jill Green.

RUTH: Yes that's right. Who is going to the wedding?

LEE KEE: The invitation was for Jim and Grace.

RUTH: Yes, that means that they will both go to the wedding. Were they both invited to the wedding meal?

LEE KEE: Yes, they were. They were replying to Jill Green's parents saying that they will be pleased to go to the wedding meal.

RUTH: When we use the verb 'will', it is often shortened. Let me say a sentence to explain what I mean. I could say, "We will go to see a film after the meal." The shortened form of the verb would allow me to say it like this, "We'll go to see a film after the meal." So instead of saying "We will", I said "We'll". Lee Kee, can you think of a sentence that uses the shortened form for 'They will'?

LEE KEE: 'They'll really enjoy themselves when they go swimming.'

RUTH: Yes, that's right. As Lee Kee says that sentence again, why don't you say it with her?

LEE KEE: 'They'll really enjoy themselves, when they go swimming.'

RUTH: 'They'll' is the shortened form of the verb 'will' using the pronoun 'they'. I am sure you know that 'we', 'they', 'he', 'I' and 'she' are all pronouns. Using the verb 'will' with for example, 'he', shortens it to 'he'll'. Lee Kee, can you give me one more sentence using the pronoun 'she' and the verb 'will' in the shortened form?

LEE KEE: 'She'll look gorgeous in the pink dress.'

RUTH: That's right. Say it again with Lee Kee now.

LEE KEE: 'She'll look gorgeous in the pink dress.'

RUTH: Lee Kee and I will repeat these sentences again at the end of the programme.

RUTH: Our true story today is that of Matthew from India. His story tells of when he was driving his car with a friend as a passenger. He was made to stop the car at gun point and forced to give the robbers his watch, wedding ring and money. Matthew was a Christian and in his story today, he tells of how one of his attackers became a Christian because of what Matthew had said. Matthew's story is being read by Christopher.

Story Testimony

"They have guns - look, they are pointing this way!" I cried. The men stood in the middle of the road, and we had to stop the car. Then they rushed at us, forcing us out onto the street. With a gun at my chest, they took my watch, my wedding ring, and my money. Then they jumped in the car and drove quickly away. They left us standing in the middle of the road.

As they drove off, I saw one of the robbers pick up my Bible. So I cried after him - "Read that book, it can help you."

Six months later I received a letter. It said, "I am one of the men who attacked you. I still remember your peaceful quiet face looking at me over the barrel of my gun. I write to tell you that I read your Bible. What I read in this book changed and saved my life. I realised that the living God could give me a better life. So I ran away from the gang of thieves. Some time after this, I heard that three of the gang were killed as they attacked a bus. Someone else pulled out a gun and shot them. I realised that if I had not read your Bible, I would be dead now. Please forgive me for all I did wrong in robbing you that day. When I read this, I forgave him. I was glad that this man has found the living God's peace and joy.

RUTH: I said at the beginning of the programme that I'll ask Lee Kee some more questions about herself. Lee Kee, you are a Christian, aren't you? At what age did you become a Christian?

LEE KEE: I became a Christian when I was 29 years old, when I was in England.

RUTH: And what job do you do here in England?

LEE KEE: I'm a midwife at the moment.

RUTH: And what are some of your hobbies?

LEE KEE: I love watching sports programmes and playing Scrabble and reading.

RUTH: I am sure we'll hear more from Lee Kee in future programmes. Did you notice I used 'we'll'? This was part of our lesson for today. I told you that in English, when we talk about the future, we say "it will be". Remember that we use the shortened version of the verb after a pronoun. Let's practice some sentences. 'They'll really enjoy themselves, when they go swimming.' Repeat this sentence with Lee Kee.

LEE KEE: 'They'll really enjoy themselves, when they go swimming.'

RUTH: In that sentence, Lee Kee used the pronoun 'They' and the shortened ending to the verb 'll', saying 'They'll'. Now Lee Kee, please repeat the sentence we practised earlier using the pronoun 'she'.

LEE KEE: 'She'll look gorgeous in the pink dress.'

RUTH: As Lee Kee says that sentence again, why don't you say it with her?

LEE KEE: 'She'll look gorgeous in the pink dress.'

RUTH: Next week we'll continue looking at 'will'. There will even be the chance to practice 'won't'.

RUTH: Lee Kee and I will be back with you next week. We hope that you will join us then for another programme of 'Say It Again'. Goodbye from us both.

BOTH: Goodbye.
