Let's Learn English 2- Lesson 6: Will It Float?:

PenelopeAnna, thanks for taking me on a tour of D.C. today.
AnnaSure thing, Penelope. You are new to town. And a tour is the best way to see more of the city!
PenelopeSo, which tour are we taking – the one that goes through the city on a bus? Or the one that goes along the river in a boat?
PenelopeWhat? Anna, this isn’t going to be one of those trips, is it?
AnnaNo. Follow me.
Professor BotIn this lesson, you are going to hear lots of prepositions! What’s a preposition, you ask? It’s a word that shows relationships between things. Anna says they are going on a tour through the city and along the river. Through and along are both prepositions. Watch for more!
AnnaWell, Penelope, there’s our ride!
PenelopeWhat is it?
AnnaIt’s the famous DC Ducks -- the boat with wheels! We will ride on the road and then sail on the water!
PenelopeWho thinks of these things?
AnnaI don't know. But I’m glad they do! Let’s get aboard, Sailor!
Penelope(looking at a brochure about the boat) Hey, did you know that this bus … um, boat was created during World War II to carry people and supplies?
AnnaWow. You know, a tour is so much more interesting with Fun Facts, like that one.
PenelopeI agree. I love Fun Facts!
BoyDid I hear you say you love Fun Facts?
Anna & PenelopeYeah.
BoyWell, I have tons of Fun Facts for this tour!
Anna & PenelopeGreat!
AnnaPenelope, where are his parents?
PenelopeMaybe - maybe he’s the Captain’s son and he helps his dad on tours!
AnnaOh yeah! It would be so awesome to ride around the city in a boat all day with your dad!
PenelopeThis is amazing, Anna. There are so many beautiful buildings along this road!
AnnaHey, the Washington Monument is on the left!
Professor BotI have a Fun Fact too! Did you know that the Washington Monument was damaged in an earthquake? Whoa. Did you feel that?!
I heard"around the city in a boat," "along this road and "on the left." All of these are prepositions showing place. Let's watch for more places and prepositions!
PenelopeLook, Anna, we’re across from the White House!
AnnaPenelope, the only thing between us and the President is the street … and a park … and a security gate .... and police officers … with guns.
BoyExcuse me, do you want to know a Fun Fact about the White House?
Anna & PenelopeYes!
BoyInside the White House there is a swimming pool, a movie theater and 32 bathrooms!
PenelopeThirty-two bathrooms! That’s a lot of bathrooms!
BoyI’d be happy with two. I live in a house with my mom, four sisters, two aunts and only one bathroom!
PenelopeOh my! You know, Anna, we should give him a tip!
AnnaOf course! It is polite to tip your tour guide! Luckily, I have lots of dollar bills!
PenelopeThat was a great Fun Fact! Here you go!
BoyThank you! I can tell you Fun Facts all day!
Professor BotDid you hear any more prepositions of place? I heard "between us and the president" “inside the White House" and "in a house."
And did you hear that the Duck Boat can go on the river? I don't believe it. Join us next time to find out which preposition we will use. The boat went ON the river or The boat went INTO the river?
