     When you apply for a job ( When you go to the interview) (When you seek employment) , your attire should be neat and tidy, hair and fingernails well groomed and your shoes moderate (fit)  ( comfortable). 当你去面试的时候,你的衣服要干净整洁,头发、指甲都要修剪好,要穿适合的鞋子。 apply =to interview or seek = to look for            seeking employment    ?????????

    apply=to put on          When you apply your make-up, it should look nice, not too much.   ??????????????

    Before the interview, one should prepare some of knowledge about the company one is seeking employment with. 

  It is extremely important for a job applicant to make sufficient preparations while seeking employment

          I clean and polish frequently, There is no dust in sight. Everything is neat and tidy. There is a big sofa near the big wall. There are beautiful pillows on the sofa. There is a large coffee table in front of the sofa. All the crafts are on the shelf which is on the left of the sofa. After a meal, I have to use a dish rag to wash the dishes by hand  and a dish towel to dry them,  I don't have an automatic dishwasher.   Before I go to sleep, I tie a soft piece of rope on my small bed to put my feet under and I do one hundred sit-ups. Then I take a shower and close the curtains, pull down the shades.  in the weekend, I have two days off work .Scrubbing the bathroom. I use a brush to clean the toilet bowl.  There is a big mirrow hanging over the sink in the restroom.   Using cleaner to clean the mirror and a dust cloth to wipe off the shelves , coffee table and window ledges. Using the mop to clean the floors.  I strip the bed clothing and wash them in the automatic washing machine, like sheets comforters=quilt, blanket and pillow cases. I spend every day happily.

Hello
 everyone and welcome to your first english lesson. My name is Gabrielle and I'm here wiht you to teach you some English. Did you see the first episode of our story? In our sitcom today. Elena, the Spanish student, arrives at Agatha's house. Elena is very brave-going to England , a new country to study the language! Don't you think? Anyway, are you ready to start the lesson? First  of all you are going to learn personal subject pronouns. like I, I am Gabrielle, you , you are my student.... Then we are also going to study the verb 'to be'. you are Pedro.  he is Marcel, she is Ute... and finaly, we will look at the contracted forms of the verb 'to be'.  you are , you're Pedro. he is , he's Marcel, She is , she's Ute. So, let's get started. our screen is going to help you understand everything.  Personal subject pronouns. We have the first person , 'I', I'm Gabrielle. and the second 'you' , you are my student. Then we have the third person singular'he', which is masculine. he is my father, my dad. 'She' which is feminine, She is my mom, she is Diane. and 'it' for things and animals. Then we have the first  person plural. 'we' we are friends now. And the second person plural, 'you' which is the same as the second person singular , you're my students. This is an important point. we say 'you' for one person and 'you' for many people. Finally we have the third person plural, 'they', they're our books. Excellent. Now it's very important to remember that with the first person singular, 'I' we always use a capital letter. ' I am your teacher. OK?  In English, we don't have different pronouns for formal and informal situations. You can use 'you' with a young boy or 'you' with the Queen of England. If you want to make a situation less formal, you can say 'call me by my first name' --like when agatha said to Elena ' call me Agatha, you're part of the family now. Do you remember? Now, are you a little tired? Maybe just a little. but we have a bit more to leran today. So let's look at the verb 'to be'. First we have 'I am', for example 'I am Gabrielle'. ' I am american.'. Then we have 'you are', 'you are French'. or 'you are tired'  Then 'he, she or it is ' for example. 'he is Jack'. ' she is Diane'. ' it is a cup of tea'.  Then 'we are', we are Brazilian, we are Italian. we are Spanish. Remember, 'you' in the plural form is the same as in the singular form. so we can say  'you are funny' to talk about one person or lots of people. Then finally we have 'they are' for example ' they are heavy, OK? Great. Now, when we are speaking in English, we often use the contracted form of the verb 'to be' . so instead of ' I am Gabrielle' we say ' I'm Gabrielle'. 'I am ' becomes 'I'm'  Do you remember in the sitcome today, Agatha said 'you're part of the family'? Well, 'you're' is the contraction of 'you are'. 'He is' becomes 'he's'  'she is' ' she's' and 'it is ' become  'it's ' --it's ... my tea. 'We are' is ' we're' 'You are', again becomes 'you're' and ' they are' 'they're', like when Elena in the sitcom describes her brothers... they're big boys.  Well, I don't know about you. but I'm exhausted after all this studying , and  I bet you're tired too. See you soon for our next lesson. Bye.
Hello there, and welcome back your English lesson! Did you enjoy the sitcome today? I like learning about people's families. do you? Elena certainly has a big family, doesn't she! What about you? Do you have a big or a small family? I have a small family , like Agatha. me, my husband , Dylan. he comes from sunny California. and he's a radio dj and Lady Coco, my fluffy cat!  But anyway ....to the lesson. Today we are going to talk about the conjugation of some regular verbs in the present simple and some city names in English. Well, before we start, let's have a look at ways of greeting people with the help of our screen. Greeting people is very important in any language. When we greet people in English. we can say 'hello' to everyone. or 'hi' to family and friends as 'hi' is less formal.  We can also say 'good morning ,good afternoon or good evening.' depending on the time of day. When people are leaving we say' see you, see you soon, goodbye. bye or good night' if it  is night time. When you leave someone, you can also say' have a nice day!' There are many ways of greeting people in English , aren't there? Now are you ready for some grammar? So, the conjugation of regular verbs in the present tense. With the verb to come we have I come, you come, he comes, she comes, it comes, we come , you come and they come. We always use the work 'come', apart from the third person singular where we use 'comes', This is the same in all regular verbs. you just add an -s to the verb with he, she or it, Easy, right?  We can say I come from London. he comes from Boston. we come from San Francisco. they come from Glasgow. OK, let's look at another verb, to live. We can say I live in Madrid. you live in Moscow. and he lives in Chicago. Remember what we do with the third person singular? We add an -s at the end -lives. Agatha's brother lives in Sydney-remember? Finally let's look at the verb to work .  I work, you work, he works, she works, it works. she works, it works. we work, you work, they work. Do you remember where Agatha's boyfriend works? He works in a bank. Dylan , my husband. works in a radio station. They work in a resturant. Now , resturant is a French word. we often use French words in English. Mary works in a boutique. Jack works in a hotel. OK. so now let's look at  some other city names in English. Do you know any? Well, we have New York, fabulous for its shopping,  Tokyo in Japan, Paris in Prance. very romantic. Saint Petersburg in Russia- brrrr it's very cold there. Florence in Italy- such a beautiful city. Barcelona in Spain and Berlin in Germany. Have you been to any of these cities? I want to visit them all. Well i think that's enough work for one day. well done for working so hard. I look forward to seeing you next time. Don't forget to practice those regular verbs. See you soon and have a nice day. Bye. 
Everyone, welcome back to your English course! I hope you are ready to study hard today. we have a lot to do. What about our sitcom?  Was it difficult to understand? Don't worry, it's always difficult at the beginning. In our story today. Elena meets Agatha's brother Victor. Victor is very surprised isn't he? and Agatha is very strange in this episode. I wonder why? Anyway, today we are going to review the personal subject pronouns. the present simple of regular verbs and then we are going to look at a new topic. the personal object pronouns. Listen you're good students and I like you. He's Dylan, my husband . he's very good -looking and I like him. We are also going to study how to say some countries nationalities and languages. Are you ready to start . Do you remember how to use personal subject pronouns and how to conjugate regular verbs? Of course you do. let's practise them again and look at countries nationalities and languages. I come from Australia so I am Australian and I speak English. You come from France so you are French and you speak French.  He comes from Italy so he is italian and he speaks Italian.  We come from Germany so we are German and we speak German. They come from Japan so they are Japanese and they speak Japanese. The nationality always stays the same-singular, plural, masculine and feminine. Do you see? so what do you think? Is your English improving or please. help me. the English language is too difficult. Well, actually this is very helpful for our lesson today. Have a look at this sentence 'please, help me'. 'Me' is a personal object pronoun. the object of the verb. So, let's look at all the personal object pronouns. We have me, you, him, her. it, us, them. Here are some examples. Anna knows James well, Anna knows him well. instead of Anna knows Nadia well.  we can say Anna knows her well. Instead of saying Anna knows French well. we can say Anna knows it well. Next we have us.  In the sitcom when Victor says to Elena 'what are you doing here?' Agatha replies 'she's staying with us .'  Finally we have them. Anna knows jack and Alice well. Anna know them well. Wow, Anna knows a lot of people. Well, that's all for today. well done. You're great students and you're going to learn a lot. I'll see you next time. Bye.
