Change is all around us. I love the kind of change that allows people to shine. 2015 and there is still a long way to go towards equality. Change is all around us. Change is a beautiful thing for some. Change is very difficult for others. It depends on which end of the stick you are holding! Power vs No power. Change is all around us. I for one value the change that equality brings!

Hi! Welcome to English w/Katie. I’m Katie, Katie Adler, and it’s Video Monday time to begin our “Five Ways To Say It” week, because there is more than one way to say the same thing. That’s the truth.

So, this week we’re working with Change is in the air. Change is in the air. Lots of times there’s just a feeling in a neighborhood, a family or world-wide where lots of things are changing. Change is in the air! I think change is in the air.

This week we’re working with “Change is in the air!”  Take care and have a good one! Bye.

Change is in the air.

Change is in the air.

Change is in the air.

Sincerely,

Katie Adler

Katie Adler’s A++ Saturday!

5 ways 1 Hi! Welcome to A++ (Answer plus, plus) Saturday!

A++レベルの会話ができるためには、人からの質問に最初に答えるとき、少し多めに情報を与えることが大切です。 最初の答え 追加情報 更なる追加情報

A++ is giving extra information in your responses to questions or comments. Here are three examples:

Question/Comment Answer + +
1) How are you? Fine! I went for a walk this morning. I saw so many beautiful flowers!
2) That looks delicious. It is! I got it at the bakery near the station. It was my first time to go to that bakery.
3) Can you play tennis? No. I don’t really like sports. I like reading!

  This week’s Five Ways To Say It:

http://englishwithkatie.com/five-ways-to-say-it-video-monday-its-hard-to-not-have-an-opinion/

  • It’s hard not to have an opinion.

  • It’s hard to be neutral.

  • It’s hard not to weigh in.

  • Usually there’s a point of view.

  • It’s difficult not to be biased.

The answers will be in next month’s newsletter!

答えは来月のニュースレターになります !Screen Shot 2015-06-27 at 8.58.57 PM

Where do these go?

There are three sentences that are missing in the dialog. Can you put these three sentences in the right place in the dialog? Have fun! (この会話から3つの文章が抜けています。その3つの文章を会話の中の正しい場所にいれてください。それでは楽しくやってみましょう!)

The choices:

1) Well, you’re right.  (+) It’s difficult not to be biased. (+) We sure are!

2) Oh my! (+) It’s hard to be neutral. (+) I have to hold my tongue.

3) Me too. (+) The environment is another. (+) It’s hard to not have an opinion.

==========================================================

A++ is giving the initial response and adding detail. Here are some ideas for how to think A++ for some of this week’s sentences. Pay attention to the (+) (+). (A++は最初の返答と、会話に詳細を加えるお手伝いをします。どのように今週の文章にA++の方法を使えるかをご紹介します。(+) (+)に注意してください。

A) 1, 2, or 3?

B) I know what you mean. (+) Especially when it’s a heated topic. (+) For me it’s animals.

A) 1, 2, or 3?

B) I would love it if one day could be a “no car” day. (+) Public transportation only. (+) Once a month would be a great start!

A) I know. (+) Good idea. (+) Public transportation and emergency vehicles only. 

B) 1, 2, or 3?

Usually there’s a point of view. We grow up knowing about animal testing and usually there’s a point of view. An informed point of view needs effort. People who have an investment in the outcome want their point of view to prevail. With the hot topics usually there’s a point of view.

It’s hard to not weigh in. Most people familiar with American history and slave history have an opinion about the Confederate flag. With the rights of a people squashed for the sake of a way of life, for economics, it’s hard to not weigh in. Opinions are polarized. It’s hard to not weigh in. The Confederate flag is a hot topic.

It’s hard to be neutral. How old girls should be when they marry is a topic that most people have an opinion about. It’s hard to be neutral. With the rights of children advancing globally, it is very hard to be neutral. I seldom hear, “Well, it’s none of my business.” It’s hard to be neutral on the issue of marriage and age.

Hi! Welcome to English w/Katie. I’m Katie, Katie Adler, and it’s Video Monday time to begin our “Five Ways To Say It” week, because there is more than one way to say the same thing. 

This week we’re working with  “It’s hard to not have an opinion.”  It’s hard to not have an opinion. So for example, topics like the death penalty, nuclear power, topics that are hot. Topics that most people have an opinion about, it’s hard to not have an opinion. To say I don’t know; I’m not sure. Most people have an opinion on hot topics. 

I hope all of your opinions are well-thought out, researched and come to a reasonable conclusion. Although, reasonable is personal…reasonable is personal for all people! Take care and have a good one! Bye. 

It’s hard to not have an opinion.
