イントロ

1. Learn Vocabulary - Learn some new vocabulary before you start the lesson.

2. Read and Prepare - Read the introduction and prepare to hear the audio.

You make think you’ve seen this before, but you haven’t. “Yeah, yeah, I know,” you’re probably thinking. “Amanda likes Mason and he doesn’t get it. This is just like the time he told her about a date he went on, or the time they cuddled on the couch and nothing happened.”

And, you know, you’d have good reason for thinking that. Even Amanda is about to give up on Mason. She’s starting to think it’s hopeless. But you’re both wrong. Watch and see what happens. The voices you hear are Mason and Amanda’s thoughts.

3. Watch - Watch the video without reading the dialog.

Dialog

Mason

Mason

Amanda

Amanda

Amanda:  Mason was so excited to come over here and watch a movie. I wonder if that means anything. I don’t really want to get my hopes up, but I’m kind of getting tired of him not noticing me flirting or sending him signals, ever.

Mason:  That Keira Knightley is hot. You know, come to think of it, she kind of looks like Amanda.

Amanda:  You know who I dig is Orlando Bloom. Probably because he looks exactly like Mason, that dirty, drug-addict look.

Mason:  Yeah, Amanda, is looking good. Like, really good.

Amanda:  You know, I’m just going to give up on this whole Mason thing and move on with my life. It’s never gonna happen. If it was going to happen, it would have happened by now, so forget it.

Mason:  Whoa, I am totally checking out Amanda. What the heck is up with that? Like, seriously, what if she knew. I mean, we’re such good friends…This is just messed up.

Amanda:  Where am I going to meet a cool guy? On the Internet? I don’t really want to go on a blind date and this whole thing with Jason was a train wreck. I mean, he’s nice and all, it’s just not gonna happen and he just doesn’t get it.

Mason:  OK Mason. Get a hold of yourself. You’re into Amanda. This is kinda big. So what do I do? What would happen if I uh, maybe if I just like uh…

ディスカッション

Oh my goodness! Did you see that! It finally happened! It wasn’t anything big, but it was there. Mason touched Amanda’s hand. He likes her.

It’s funny how it went down. Mason and Amanda were watching a movie and each was thinking about how the other looks like one of the stars of the film. Then it hit him. Mason was attracted to Amanda for the first time. At first it kind of scared him, but then he made his move.

What do you think is next for Amanda and Mason? How will Jason and Devan take the news?

Well, to be honest, I think that Mason needs to talk with her and be more direct. He should send more signals, because she probably dosen’t like to wait for a long time like me. I don’t like when guys just send signals and they never do nothing haha. Just go for it, and forget what she or he think about you.


They love the idea to be toguether. 


The next lessons will be love of Jason and Amanda :)
