Astfel de exemplu ntr-unui din capitole cum ntrebi pentru a afla drumul corect sau n altul cum se vorbete despre hobby-uri i interese comune. n prima coloan gsii traducerea n limba romn a dialogurilor. Cu acestei traduceri putei fi mereu siguri c ai neles totul corect. La dialogurilor exist, acolo unde este cazul, probleme de gramatic. 2.

CUM FOLOSII MANUALUL?


n primul rnd, ascultai dialogurile de pe casete pentru a v putea concentra asupra textului englez, fr a v folosi de manual. La a doua ascultare, citii din manual textele dialogurilor. De ori simii nevoia, apsai

pe butonul pauz, oprii caseta i citii n linite. Dac dorii s revenii, derulai caseta i reluai partea dorit! n al doilea rnd, dublai cu voce tare dialogul de pe caset, lecie cu lecie. Oprii banda i reluai de cte ori este nevoie, dac dorii s ascultai o secven anume. Urmrii cu atenie preluarea exact a pronuniei i intonaiei. Cnd sntei sigur c putei repeta dialogul, din nou cu voce tare din manual. n al treilea rnd, axai-v pe acele pri din lecii intitulate Cum se exprim. cu i aflai ce nsemneaz. Eventual ascultai din nou dialogurile de pe casete, cuprinznd situaiile respective. Gsii moduri de exprimare i reguli gramaticale simple, pentru a v constitui o baz a limbii engleze. al patrulea rnd, folosii componenta exerciii din fiecare lecie. n majoritatea cazurilor avei de-a face cu o convorbire. Citii indicaiile cu atenie pentru a ti la care parte a exerciiului v referii. Soluiile exerciiilor le gsii pe casete. Lucrai exerciiile pasaj cu pasaj. Dai rspunsul cu voce tare. Ascultai rspunsul de pe caset ori utilizai soluiile oferite de manual, soluia proprie. Dup fiecare soluie, pe caset este o scurt pauz. Dac acea pauz nu v este suficient pentru soluionare, acionai butonul pauz" al Acordai atenie exprimrii i i cutai s le reproducei. Repetai de cte ori simii c este necesar. n al cincilea rnd, ascultai nc o dat dialogurile. Vei remarca faptul c nelegei sensurile fr nici un efort. Repetai operaia de cte ori este nevoie pentru a nelege i a v exprima corect. Nu v sfiii s vorbii cu voce tare. Este cea mai bun formul de nvare. n partea a doua a manualului, gsii un grup de scenete al cror coninut este astfel dozat nct numrul vocabulelor s creasc de la prima spre ultima scenet. Este vorba de vocabule pe care nc nu le-ai nvat. Nu v alarmai, dac nu putei rspunde imediat unei ntrebri. Reascultai sceneta de cte ori este nevoie. Dac socotii necesar, derulai puin caseta napoi i ascultai din nou, pn ce, cu ajutorul vocabulelor deja nvate, putei descurca lucrurile i putei da rspunsul. Nu uitai s vorbii cu voce tarei

"e" n cuvinte ca: and i; bad ru; flag steag; map [maep] hart.

"e" n cuvinte ca: [bed] pat; less [Ies] mai puin; red [red] rou. 3. n cuvinte ca: her ei (dativ, acuzativ); certain sigur, nerve [nov] nerv; service serviciu. 4. " i " n cuvinte ca: English englez(esc); begin [bigin] a ncepe; repeat repeta. NOTA: Semnul / ntlnit mai sus n cuvntul English [ingli/] reproduce sunetul romnesc "". 5. "" n cuvinte ca better mai bun, member membru, never niciodat.

se n cuvinte ca big mare, bill fish pete, milk lapte, till pn. Aici nu am folosit transcrierea fonetic, cuvintele se pronun aproape la fel cum snt scrise. 2. n cuvinte ca: Friday vineri; ice ghia; [naif] cuit; Ine [lain] linie; time timp. 3. " lung" n cuvinte ca: bird [b :d] pasre; dirty [d :ti] murdar; first [f :st] primul; girl [g :l] fat; shirt [f :t] cma.

Snt acestea cuvinte n care sunetul "r" nu se aude aproape deloc, fiind aproape aspirat de o. 3. "ou" n cuvinte ca: singur; close nchis; gold aur; moment [moument] moment; open [oupn] deschis 4. Ca un fel de "a" nchis i scurt, marcat n englez cu semnul fonetic A, n aa fel nct s se ating cu limbii partea posterioar a cerului gurii; done [dAn] fcut, glove v] mnu, money ni] bani, sometimes uneori, tongue limb. 5.
