Dear Ms. Vicki Hollett,
How are you? I have seen your video I like it. I would like to discuss a lot of things about your videos as I am developing one mega software on English Speaking. Add me in your list and let me have your skype id.
I forgot to say. I like your challenge, Tara.
I'm British by birth but I've been living in the US for about 12 years now. I've found there are pockets of vocabulary that differ, and the language used to make appointments is one of them.
I once had to 'translate' a book I'd written for Oxford University Press (a British publisher) into American English and these are some of the changes we had to make:
When would be convenient for you?
Can you make 4.30?
Yes, that suits me.
What time is good for you?
How does 4:30 look?
Yes, that works for me.
I love that you used phrases like "Friday works" and "I can do Monday"! Let's add a little challenge to this video for learners.
Challenge: Write a short dialogue (3-6 lines) in the comments below. Set up a coffee date with a friend. Use some of the phrases from the video.
I made this video with my son, hoping it would help English students learn the days of the week and some useful expressions for making appointments. Do you like it?
