Let's Learn English - Lesson 50: Back to School:


AnnaHello, and welcome to Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.! I am going back to school! Georgetown is the oldest Catholic and Jesuit university in the United States. The Jesuits are a religious order known worldwide for their many colleges and universities. Students have been studying here since 1792!
SarahHey, are you finished with your report?
TaylorAlmost. I have been writing and re-writing since last night! The subject is really interesting to me.
SarahMe too! I have been studying this topic* for a long time.
AnnaAm I late?
SarahYou’re a little late. But don’t worry. The professor isn’t here yet.
AnnaHow long has the class been waiting?
TaylorWe’ve only been waiting for about 10 minutes.
AnnaOh good. Oh, no! I forgot my pencil sharpener. Excuse me, do you have a pencil sharpener I can borrow?
TaylorNo, sorry.
AnnaOh wait. I found my extra one! Whew, that was close.
AnnaSo, how long have you been studying at Georgetown?
AndrewI’ve been studying here since 2015.
AnnaAwesome. You know, I've been wanting to go back to school for a long time. So, here I am!
AndrewWell, you picked a great school. I’ve been really happy here.
AnnaAwesome. See, I’ve been working for several years now. So, going back to school makes me a little nervous.
RandallDon’t be nervous. Just pay attention and do your best!
AnnaThat is great advice. You know, I have been paying attention. But sometimes I still feel like I don’t understand. Like last week …
AnnaWhat’s that?
JadaThis is my draft.
AnnaWhat draft?
JadaThe professor told us to bring our drafts.
AnnaI think she said “giraffe.”
JadaNo. She didn’t.
AnnaHere comes the professor.
Dr. JonesHello class! Sorry I'm late, but the snow storm made getting here really difficult. I see you’ve been waiting very patiently. So, let’s get started! Who wants to give their talk first?
AnnaOh! Oh! Please, please pick me.
Dr. JonesAnna?
AnnaWho me? Sure. Thanks.
AnnaHere is my report on “Violins in the City.”
AnnaPeople have been looking for a solution to the problem of violins in the city. I say stop! Stop! They are not the problem! In fact, violins are part of the solution!
AnnaViolins create beautiful music that can fill a city with hope.
Dr. JonesAnna …
AnnaIf we put a violin in the hands of every child …
Dr. JonesAnna! The topic is “Violence in the city.” Violence. Not violins.
AnnaUntil next time …Like I was saying, many people are saying that violence in the city is a problem. A very big problem.
