Some students think they never tell stories, but that is not true. Any time we talk about an action or an event, it is a story. If you describe a book you have read, or a movie that you have seen, that is a story too. This lesson we will learn how to tell a story in English.
|1. Tell us about your trip.
|It was the most horrible five days of my life. First, we missed our flight; then we had to wait four hours for our luggage. The food on the plane was terrible, and there was no shower in the hotel.
|2. What happened to your ankle?
|Well, my best friend and I went skiing over the weekend. I wanted to try something exciting, so I took the most difficult trail. I hit a bump and fell. Then I slid 500 meters before I could stop.
|3. What did you do last summer?
|We went scuba diving in Malaysia. It was my first time, so I learned a lot. We took a boat out to a tiny island, found the perfect spot, and swam for hours among the fishes.
