(Beginner - Conversation, Reading)

Dialogs for everyday use. Short situational dialogs for students of English as a Foreign (EFL) or Second (ESL) Language.

Peter: There’s the shoe store we’ve been looking for. It’s just across the street.

Gail: Wait! You can’t cross the street in the middle of the block! You have to cross at the corner.

Peter: Oh, come on. Let’s go across here.

Gail: Look out! You nearly got hit by that car! Now do you see why you should cross at the corner?

Peter: I guess you’re right. I’ll be more careful after this.
Conversation Notes
  • There’s the
  • This is the “pointing out” there (the adverb, not the introductory function word), and therefore it receives a strong stress.
  • shoe store
  • A compound noun; therefore the first word is singular and receives the principal stress.
  • the shoe store we’ve been looking for
  • This is the usual, natural way to say this, omitting the relative pronoun and putting the preposition at the end. The shoe store that we’ve been looking for is also possible. However, for which we’ve been looking is extremely unlikely in this natural conversational context. Notice how the present perfect progressive emphasizes the immediate, continuous nature of the activity.
  • just across the street
  • Meaning is directly across the street, exactly across the street.
  • Oh, come on
  • As used here, means something like Oh, don’t be so careful and scrupulous! The phrase come on is frequently used to mean Hurry along. Don’t delay! Note that the two­word verb come ON has the stronger stress on the adverbial element on.
  • Look out
  • Meaning is be careful! Be alert! The phrase Watch out means the same thing.
  • see
  • Meaning is understand.
  • why you should cross
  • Note that the indirect question has the normal word order of a statement, with the subject before the verb. (In the corresponding direct question the word order would be: Why should you cross…?)
  • I guess
  • Meaning is I think (that).
