Lesson 3 Dialogue Assignment

PART 1: If you’ve practiced the phrases from Lesson 3 (check out pages 133-141 of the book), you’re ready to see these phrases in a real-life context.

PART 2: You should also practice these sentences, with correct pronunciation.(All of these sentences are from the dialogue above, so you can hear how they’re pronounced in the video.) We haven’t learned the meaning of every word yet, but it’s important to start pronouncing whole sentences, even before understanding them.

PART 3: If you’re a member, record yourself saying the sentences below at this link so that we can critique your pronunciation.
