Level 1

Guided Program


There are a few huge takeaways from this short exchange, that you will want to pounce on, and that you will find plenty of opportunities to put to use when it comes time for real world communication.

  1. The polite practice of asking a newly met acquaintance for his or her family name.
  2. How to return a question to the person who asked it - In this case, the man asks the woman for her surname, and she in turn will ask 'and yours'?
  3. How to say 'nice to meet you'.

But that's a lot to listen for on the first time round. For starters, on that first listen, just see if you can identify the short utterance where the female speaker returns the request for a family name. ('and yours?')
