How to echo: Part 2
Feedback on yesterdays question:
Yesterday I gave you a quiz. How to respond when you don’t understand the question:
Q)Yo dude! Sorry to get in your face, but can you tell me where I could hang a leak?
I chose this sentence because the only ‘easy’ word is the question word: ‘where’.
When you have trouble with English, focus on what you DO UNDERSTAND. It will help you guess the rest!!
I congratulate those who had a try at the question! It is always good to take a guess! And have a try! Then we all learn something!
It is great to have such smart people out there!
So, what does the sentence mean?
Sorry to bother you, but could you tell me where the toilet is?
This sentence uses slang. I did this to make the question more difficult.
- Yo dude: Hello, or excuse me
- Sorry to get in your face: ‘bother someone’ or ‘fight with someone’
- Hang a leak: Go to the toilet to do a wee or unrinate (look these words up in your dictionary)
I suggest you use slang carefully. Not everyone likes slang!
Hope you are having a good week!
Do you use slang? Who do you talk to that you don’t use slang with?
