第3课 NIGHT CLASSES

2006-07-29 09:59

  In yesterday's lesson, Jane wanted to know how long Nora had worked for HotDotCom. She asked: 'How long have you been working……'. Jane's question was correct, but Nora gave a strange reply: 'Since 9 a.m.'. Nora should have said, 'Since 1999', or 'For two years'.

  Gary enters Mei Ling's office for an interview. Jane is already there.

  Mei Ling: Welcome, Gary. Please take a seat.

  Gary: Thank you.

  Mei Ling: I'm Mei Ling, the Managing Director of HotDotCom - and this is Jane, the Marketing Manager.

  Jane: Hi!

  Gary: Nice to meet you.

  Mei Ling: So, tell us a bit about yourself.

  Gary: Well, I am graduated from St Vincent's with my N levels. But I am upgrading myself. Mus upgrade all the time. I am studying night classes. I did a test last week, but they never tell the result. But I lucky, ah. The lecturer leave the mark sheet open and I got see.

  Jane: Oh! You got a C? That's not very good.

  Gary: But I got A.

  Jane: You just said that you……

  Mei Ling: So you are a good student.

  Gary: Yes, I always get 25 upon 30.

  Mei Ling: Good. Well, we are looking for an administrative assistant. You will be……

  We leave the interview and later find Mei Ling and Jane alone. Gary has just left.

  Jane: He wasn't very good.

  Mei Ling: I think he was perfect.

  Jane: But he lied to us. He said he got a C, then he tells us he got an A. I mean really!

  Mei Ling: No, no. He didn't lie. He meant he had seen his results. He got an A.

  Jane: Oh! I thought……

  Mei Ling: Yes, I know. Singlish!

  Jane: Oh! I must have seemed very rude. Maybe I can catch him before he leaves.

  Jane runs after Gary and catches up with him at the elevator.

  Jane: Gary! Gary!

  Gary: Yes?

  Jane: Look, I just want to say sorry.

  Gary: For what?

  Jane: I didn't understand you back there. I haven't been here long.

  Gary: What didn't you understand? I am very eager to upgrade all the time.

  Jane: Well, when you said, 'I got see,' I thought you meant that you got a C grade.

  Gary: Oh! No! I got A grade. I am sorry. What should I say?

  Jane: I have seen my results.

  Gary: Alamak!

  Jane: What?

  The narrator now explains where the confusion was.

  Narrator: That's not the only mistake that Gary made. Remember this?

  Replay……

  Gary: Well, I am graduated from St. Vincent's with my N levels. But I am upgrading myself. Mus upgrade all the time. I am studying night classes.

  Narrator: Grammatically speaking, 'I am graduated' should be, 'I have graduated'. So, Gary should have said 'I've graduated from St. Vincent's'.

  Replay……

  Gary: But I am upgrading myself. Mus upgrade all the time.

  Narrator: Usually, when we talk about upgrading someone, we mean that his or her position has changed. For example, 'Say Chian has been upgraded to head teller.' Gary could have said……

  Gary: I am always improving my skills.

  Narrator: He is, too. He's going to be a good administrative assistant. But did you hear his other mistakes?
