Can I help?  Yes, please. Set the table, dear.  Set the table? I'll help you. That's a good boy. The plates. Is your boyfriend Harold eating with us? No. Harold is in Oxford. Harold's bank has an office in Oxford.  The knives and forks. Knife, fork and spoon.  Is the table set? Yes. Agatha.  Good. Sit down, please. Dinner is ready. Are we having dinner now?  Why of course, dear. What we are having? We are having soup and a salad. Do you like chicken soup, Elena?  Yes, thank you. Please, put the napkins on the table, Victor. Sorry. Here there are.  My silly Victor he forgets everything. Everything?  Here's your soup....help yourself to the bread.  thank you, Agatha.  You're welcome, my dear. It's so nice to have you here.  yes. It's ....It's nice to have you here. Thank you. That is very kind.  Nonsense. Now, let's eat.  How's your soup?  It's delicious.  What's wrong, dear?  Don't you like it? Well.  You don't feel well? No. I'm sorry. It is a bit early for me. I am not really hungry.  Not hungry?  What time does your family eat dinner back in Spain? We eat dinner at ten o'clock at home. Well, imagine that. We're usually in bed before midnight.  Elena, darling, you must forgive our stange English habits.  No, it is all a bit stange for me now. My poor dear? You must be exhausted.  Maybe you should go to bed soon, Elena.  Yes, please. I'm sorry.  No, Don't worry. You go and sleep.   Thank you both. Good night, Elena. Night.  Sleep well dear. Not again, Agatha. Don't do this to me again. Why, my darling brother, what are you talking about?  Hi, there, everybody. and welcome back to your English lesson with me, Gabrielle. I'm sure the sitcom is becoming easier for you to understand, isn't it.  Good. Now, we know that every country has its own traditions and customs. but poor Elena is very surprised to see how early the English eat dinner. Now, I don't mind eating early. especially when somebody else is preparing my dinner. Ok, today in our lesson, we are going to look at the possessive adjectives in English. Like my, your and his. We are also going to look at ways of apologizing to people.  To apologize means to say that you're sorry for doing something wrong. Ok? Let's get started. First of all let's go over the possessive adjectives. We have my.  this is my bag. then your, I am your teacher. His for masculine. This is his hat, Dylan is so handsome with his hat on. but let's continue with possessives. her for feminine, it's for things or animals, our, your and their. it's improtant to note that your and you're,  the contraction of you are have the same pronunciation. so make sure you don't confuse them. This is your book and you're very good students. Another improtant point is that the possessive adjectives never change, they stay the same whether the noun is singular or plural. So we can say my book or my books. Ok?  Let's look at some examples. My friend robert is American. Your friend lives in Madrid. His sister knows heather very well. Her mother is a good cook. Lady Coco, my cat, loves its ball. Our father works in Toronto.  Their house is beautiful. Remember that his sister is used to describe the sister of a man. for example. 'the sister of Sam'. his sister and her brother is used to describe the brother of a woman, for example 'the brother of jessica' her brother. Now, do you remember in the sitcom, Victor forgets to put the napkins on the table, so he says sorry to Agatha?  Well sorry is a way of apologizing in English.  We can also say I'm sorry or I apologize. which is slightly more formal. If you want to make the apology stronger you can say I'm so sorry. If you do something really bad you can say please forgive me. Now, if someone apologizes to you and you forgive them, you can say don't worry, like Agatha said to Elena 'don't worry. you go and sleep', or you can say that's ok. Well, I hope you don't have to apologize too much in English. Angway that's enough for today. thank you for working so hard and I'll see you next time. Goodbye everyone. Oh. Good morning. You're up early. Yes. I'm looking for ...for my......For your keys?  Yes. They are here. Thank you. Thank you , Victor. Do your classes start today? No. I start classes on Wednesday.  I'm looking for a job today. Oh. It's a good idea to get the paper early. Can I ....Can I make you some tea?  Do you have coffee? Sorry. I'm not sure if we have any coffee. Let me have a look. Darling. Good morning. Good morning Agatha. What a clever girl. You're doing morning exercises. Oh, yes, yes. Did you sleep well? Very well. Sorry, no coffee. Maybe we should add it to the shopping list. Yes, yes. tell me what you need. I'm going shopping with my sister. Betty. Coffe would be nice.  Well, what are your plans for today. sweetheart? She's job-hunting. She's looking for a part-time job. How industrious. Well, a pretty girl like you will have no trouble finding a job. Here's the paper. Thanks. And look, There's one. It's here in Kensington. 'Video Store on the High Street.' ' Young person with excellent communication skills'  that's perfect. And ..'Afternoon shifts Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. '  Where is the High Street?  Just make a left at the top of our road onto Hornton and then make another left onto the High Street. The store is on your right, next to the Tube Station. The Tube? I'll walk you up there, Okay? Thank you. That is very kind of you. Nonsense. My brother is a gentleman. Go get ready and I'll meet you downstairs in fifteen minutes. Okay? Okay. Well, good luck my dear. Have a nice day. Thanks. You too Agatha. I'll see you in a little while. Bye. Bye-bye. Hi, everybody. Welcome back. Are you ready for some serious studying? In today's sitcom elena looks in the newspaper for a part time job, with the help of Victor. That will really help her English working in a video store. Don't you think? Talking to people all day in english is a great idea. Now, in today's lesson we are going to talk about the possessive case. This is Gabrielle's scarf. Lady Coco, do you remember her? Lady Coco is Gabrielle's cat. Then we are going to study the days of the week. Monday, Tuesday. maybe you know some of them and then the numbers one to twelve. Does that sound ok? All right, Let's get started. So, I have a friend, Jade. she has gorgeous red hair and she's a very good friend of mine. Jade has a brother. He's a student. I can make life much easier by saying. Jade's brother is a student. Instead of using 'the brother of Jade.'  I can simply add's and say Jade's brother. It's much simpler, isn't it? Let's look at some more examples shall we? In English instead of saying the mother of Peter. we say Peter's mother. A native English speaker doesn't say the book of Sarah. they say Sarah's book. We can say Agatha's boyfriend is very handsome. the cat's toy is in the box. the President's house is in Washington D.C. You see? It sounds much better than the house of the President. You sound like a native English speaker already. Well done. Now what day is today? Thursday? Saturday? I can never remember. Poor me. Well. I know it's not Sunday, because I don't normally work on Sunday and I usually have a delicious dinner with Dylan, our Sunday roast. So, let's look at the days of the week. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. and the weekend Saturday and Sunday. Do you remember what day Elena starts class? She starts on Wednesday. And on which days is the job at the video store? Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Ok, let's look at some other words. If today is Monday, what day is it tomorrow? Tomorrow is tuesday. And what day was it yesterday? Sunday. Here's a tip-the second day of the week is Tuesday. which sounds a bit like the number two. Remember that in English we write the days of the week with a capital letter ok? Oh, I said 'two'   so let's have a look at the numbers one to twelve. One, two ,three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve. Ok let's see if you can do a little test. What is two plus three? Five. Good. And five plus four? Nine. What about six plus six? Twelve. Good job. Well, today was an English and a math lesson. You are multi- talented. That's all for today. I'll see you next time. Bye.  Hello?  Hello. How was your day? Fabulous. Fabulous? Fabulous is excellent. I had a fabulous day, too. Going shopping? Yes. Betty and i shopped all day.  Look at my new nail polish. And this blouse is new. It looks divine on me , don't you think? It's very beautiful. And I have a skirt to go with it and a pair of boots. lovely. Of course Betty is jealous. She says I spend too much money on clothes. Hi girls. It's getting cold out there. I think it's going to rain. I hope not. Had a productive day. Agatha? Yes. Delightful. And how was your interview, Elena? Productive . I start work on Thursday after the school. Congratulations. Well done, darling. And when do you finish work? My shifts are from 3 to 7.  And what will you do at the store? I put the videos on their shelves. and I find information on the computer for customers. I love movies.Do you know what my favourite movie is? No. What is your favourite movie? 'Butterfield 8'. Well, any movie with Liz Taylor. I don't know it. Agatha watches it a lot. Betty has the video. I would like to see the movie too.  You will love it. Liz wears the most briliant clothes. and Laurence harvey. Oh, What a man. Do you like it, Victor? It's a bit old for me. I prefer science fiction and fantasy stories.  When I finish my course, I'd like to try painting sets for films. That sounds exciting. Speaking of clothing. do you have a warm coat, Elena? This is my coat. You will die of cold in that coat. You will really need a warmer coat soon, Elena. It gets very cold in London. Not like sunny Barcelona. Madrid. We might get some snow at Christmas. snow? That would be a new experience for you. Yes. How wonderful. You don't have school tomorrow.  Let's go shopping. Okay. let's go shopping. Oh dear. Hello everyone and welcome again to your English lesson. Oops.. I've just been shopping. Do you like my dress? Do you think it suits me? It's new. Well Agatha certainly loves shopping doesn't she? Although I'm not sure that Victor approves. And how about Elena today. getting the job at the video-store? Clever girl. Well, enough of that , are you ready to hear what grmmar points we are going to look at today? Well, first we are going to learn some question words like 'what', what is it ? It's my new dress. And 'where'. where are you now? I'm in the studio, teaching my lesson. Then we will look at the verb to be in its interrogative and negative forms. Is it a new bag? No,it isn't.  We will also look at the negative form of some other verbs in the present simple tense. I don't go shopping very often. Vistor doesn't like shopping.  Uh... quite a lot to cover, so are you ready to begin?  First let's look at the question word how. A well -known example of this is how are you? I am fine, thanks. How is she? She? Oh, my mum Diane. she's very well, thank you. How old are you? It's not polite to ask a lady's age but I'm pretty young anyway. How old are they? They are....36 years old. Then we have the question word what. like in What's your name?  My name is Gabrielle. as you know. and what's your firend's name? My friend's name is Jade.  Do you remember the girl with red hair?  Then we have where. Where are you from? I'm from New Your. Where is he from? He's from San Diego. I love California. Do you notice how these questions are all useful when you are getting to know someone? They are great for discovering personal information. Then we have the word when, as in when is your birthday? My birthday is in July, yes, summer time. When is the party? Sure, my birthday party, Well, I haven't decided yet. And, as Victor asked Elena, when do you finish work? No, no...we have a bit more work to do today. So. let's look at some other types of questions, using the verb to be. Are you English? Is he German? Are they French? To make questions with the verb to be. we just invert the subject and the verb. So I am a teacher becomes Am I a teacher? You are a student. Are you a student? Do you see? To make sentence negative with the verb to be. we simply add the word not. I am not Italian. We are not Chinese. He is not Scottish. When we speak English we usually contract the negative form of the verb.  so I am not Italian becomes I'm not Italian. You are not Indian is you aren't Indian. He is not French becomes he isn't French.We are not is we aren't and they are not, they aren't. The final thing I want to look at today Is adding don't or doesn't to make prsent simple verbs negative. Here's an example. I speak Spanish. I do not speak Spanish. Do not is contracted to don't. I don't speak spanish. You don't speak German. Agatha says to Elena you don't have school tomorrow. Lucky girl. she can go shopping then. In the third person singular we say she does not or doesn't like pizza which in my opinion is impossible. He doesn't live in the city. Notice how we cut off the -s from the verb when we make the sentence negative. He likes tea-he doesn't like tea. Well. I think tea sounds like a great idea.I think I will go and relax with a nice cup of tea. You can relax too - you worked hard today. Well done and see you next time. Bye.
