Intonation in Long Sentences – English Pronunciation with JenniferESL

{“en”:”In this lesson, we’ll focus on intonation patterns within longer sentences. Like the one I just said about boots. [title] My model sentences are getting longer now, so I’m using thought groups or intonation groups. Remember what those are? Sometimes our sentences begin with a longer thought. It could be a phrase or a whole clause (with a subject and a verb). We can use low-rise intonation to signal that we’re not done yet.

There’s more information that we’d like to add. There’s more than one intonation pattern we can use in longer sentences. – Either in that first thought group or a middle thought group. So I’ll share a second. It involves dropping our voice and then rising again. Some call it a fall-rise intonation pattern. We can use this fall-rise in many of the same places as the low-rise. You try. Let’s practice the fall-rise intonation pattern. Repeat after me. So what’s the difference between the low-rise and and the fall-rise? I don’t believe there’s a significant difference. Both patterns end with a rise, and that signals incompletion. You’re not done with your thought.

There’s more coming. Here’s where I think there could be a difference. Stating lists. Listen and compare. I have one pair of sneakers, a few pairs of boots, two pairs of sandals, and…several pairs of dress shoes. I have one pair of sneakers, a few pairs of boots, two pairs of sandals, and several pairs of dress shoes. When I used low-rise intonation the first time, I needed time to think. My statement sounded more hesitant, less certain. The second time I used fall-rise intonation. It sounded more certain. Perhaps even more authoritative. See if you can understand the difference when I count. First, I’ll use a low-rise.

1…2…3…4…5. Now I’ll try a fall-rise. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. Sounds more certain. I can make it even more certain and perhaps authoritative if I use that “angry parent” voice. 1, 2, 3, 4… Do you see how the meaning…and the expression changes? We can even put these two intonation patterns together in the same sentence. I did this at the beginning of the video when I said, …and then I add on. We might also use a fall-rise when we need to pause because we’re hesitating to add on. To finish our thought. We know what we’re going to say, but perhaps what we’re going to say is surprising or disappointing in some way. You’ll hear statements like, You could try, but it may not work. They’re good, but expensive. Let’s put everything together. We’ll read a short text. I’ll mark the thought groups, show the focus words, and also show where we rise and fall. If you want, I’ll tell you where I got these leather boots. Do you want to know? I got them in Texas. That’s all for now. Thanks for watching and happy studies.. “}

Study English – Series 2, Episode 6: Lasers

{“en”:”Hello. I’m Margot Politis. Welcome to Study English, IELTS preparation. Today we’re going to learn about lasers – what are they, and how they work. We’ll also practice structuring a description of how something works, and we’ll work on our vocabulary for describing colours. Let’s begin by listening to Imogen Jubb talk about the history and the science of lasers. Lasers are used in all sorts of settings like welding, cutting, surgery, communications, reading bar codes at the supermarket or reading the information stored on a CD or DVD. There are many types of lasers but they all have 3 main parts to them. They all have an energy source, such as a lamp, some sort of feedback mechanism, like this pair of mirrors, and also some medium, like the ruby crystal, which can amplify the light. Now the first laser was built in the 1960s. It was made from a ruby crystal, some lamps and 2 mirrors, one on either side of the crystal.

I’ve got a sort of model of it here. The lamp shines white light onto the crystal, which is represented by this tube. Pumping energy into the crystal actually gives off light at a particular frequency to produce a particular colour. Some of this light bounces backwards and forwards between the two mirrors, and passes through the crystal each time. Each time the light goes through the crystal, it gets amplified, stimulating the same energy release in other parts of the crystal. So after many times in between the two mirrors, and many reflections passing through the crystal, you end up with a very strong, narrow beam of light that is just one colour.

One of the mirrors is only partially reflective, so some light passes out as the laser beam. Before Imogen explains the laser to us, she starts with an ‘introduction’, or ‘orientation’. That way, we know what to focus on. If you’re describing a device or a tool, it’s a good idea to introduce it by naming it and describing what it’s used for. This is useful in spoken English, and it’s also a good way to begin if you are writing in formal English. Listen to how Imogen introduces the laser. Lasers are used in all sorts of settings like welding, cutting, surgery, communications, reading bar codes at the supermarket or reading the information stored on a CD or DVD. She talks about the function of the laser and lists a few of the things we use lasers for today. In formal writing, if you were to introduce a discussion of lasers, you could structure your opening paragraph in a few ways.

One idea would be to start like this: A laser is a device designed to intensify a beam of light. Or, you might choose to write: The diagram is of a laser designed to scan barcodes. But Imogen chooses to begin by telling us what lasers are used for. She begins: Lasers are used in all sorts of settings. In your introduction, you could give some background about the device. Once the device has been introduced, you can talk about it in more detail. Let’s listen to Imogen describe the parts of the laser. How many parts are there and what are they? There are many types of lasers but they all have 3 main parts to them.

They all have an energy source, such as a lamp, some sort of feedback mechanism, like this pair of mirrors, and also some medium, like the ruby crystal, which can amplify the light. She talks about three main parts. All lasers have: an energy source, a feedback mechanism, and a medium to amplify light. In formal writing, we could structure this information in a number of ways. We might say that: A laser consists of a number of parts. Or: All lasers are comprised of three parts. Both of these sentences are structured to include a subject, a verb, and an object. You would then follow with a list or another sentence detailing exactly what the three parts are, in order: These are the energy source, the feedback mechanism and, finally, a medium to amplify the light. Imogen then explains how each part of the device functions.

Let’s listen as she describes each part. The lamp shines white light onto the crystal, which is represented by this tube. Pumping energy into the crystal actually gives off light at a particular frequency to produce a particular colour. Some of this light bounces backwards and forwards between the two mirrors, and passes through the crystal each time. Each time the light goes through the crystal, it gets amplified, stimulating the same energy release in other parts of the crystal. So you can see how Imogen has built up a clear image of the device. In formal written English, you might finish off by explaining the ‘purpose’ of the device. You could say: The purpose of the laser is to generate an intense beam of light. Let’s hear how Imogen finishes her description. So after many times in between the two mirrors, and many reflections passing through the crystal, you end up with a very strong, narrow beam of light that is just one colour. She finishes by talking about what the purpose of the laser is, what it produces. She says: You end up with a very strong, narrow beam of light.

So let’s review how Imogen has structured her explanation. First, there was an ‘introduction’ to the object. Imogen told us that we were talking about the laser and then gave us some background. She then moved into the ‘body of the description’. She told us that it is made up of three parts, and listed those parts. In your writing, you might write three separate ‘body paragraphs’ – one for each of the parts. Then, you’d finish off with a ‘statement of purpose’ – what the object’s overall purpose is. Now let’s finish by listening to Imogen one more time, and then we’re going to talk about colours. The lamp shines white light onto the crystal, which is represented by this tube. Pumping energy into the crystal actually gives off light at a particular frequency to produce a particular colour. When energy passes through the crystal, it gives off a particular colour of light. Light contains all the colours of the ‘spectrum’, or the ‘rainbow’. These are: red orange yellow green blue indigo violet We talk about shades of colour in different ways – most commonly by using light and dark.

For example: light blue dark blue Or sometimes we refer to nature, for example: sky blue forest green fiery red We also use precious stones to describe colour. For example: sapphire blue emerald green ruby red And that brings us to the end of Study English today. But for more information on structuring descriptions go to our website. You will find notes, exercises and quizzes to help you. Just go to abcasiapacific.com/studyenglish. And I’ll se you next time for more IETLS preparation. Bye bye.. “}

10 Tips To Build Your Vocabulary | Ways To Learn More English Words

{“en”:”Hello! I’m Emma from mmmEnglish! What’s the best way to learn new English vocabulary? Ahh the million dollar question! If only I could give the ultimate answer to that question. It’s a question that I get asked daily – literally! There is no single best way. There is no quick solution, but I do have 10 tips or recommendations in this lesson that will help you to improve your English vocabulary. So you need to find the best way for you and to do that you need to take a few moments to think about YOU. Think about your interests. Do you like reading? The movies? Watching the news? How do you like to learn? Do you like to learn inside or outside, in a group or alone? What type of learner are you? How do you best take in information? And what’s your schedule like? When can you study? On the train or with your kids? Use this information to find the opportunities to learn and enjoy English.

The truth is that to successfully learn new vocabulary, you need to create really good study habits. You need to keep it interesting and you need to make sure that you’re having fun! It’s something that you need to be doing every day so you need to find a way to involve things that you love to do. Me? I get really bored reading grammar books and listening to words through dictionaries. I’m much more likely to stay motivated if I’m eating or drinking so I like to study around meals.

Hey, you may laugh but it works for me! Consistency is key when you’re learning new words. You can’t just learn them once and magically they’re kept inside your head forever. You need to hear them again and again. Understand how they’re used in different context or how they’re conjugated or used in different, in word families. You need to use them yourself. The truth is that we all learn differently.

So in this video I’m going to talk about 10 different tools and techniques that you can use to improve your vocabulary. You might not like all of them but you will definitely enjoy some of them and hopefully you can make them a part of your daily or your weekly routine. And if you’ve got any of your own suggestions about ways to learn vocabulary, then add them to the comments below! Share the love with everyone, people! So, the first suggestion or the first tip is get better at studying new words.

Keep a vocabulary journal. Don’t roll your eyes at me, you can do this in lots of different ways. If you think it’s dorky to carry around a notebook, then find a way that works for you. There are lots of apps that can help you to do this – apps on your smartphone. And it’s just as easy to make notes there. Your phone is great because it’s always with you but if you prefer to keep a notebook that’s just as good.

So neat ways of doing this are creating lists or by creating vocabulary maps. However, you do it you need to keep updating it and you need to keep building on this list and don’t just write the word down. Go deeper! If it’s a noun, learn whether it’s countable or uncountable. Learn the prefixes and suffixes so that you can build on those words. Learn synonyms for those words. You know, if you said “I felt angry”, there are so many other options.

Annoyed, irritated, furious, frustrated, or cranky. Learn if any of these words are used in phrasal verbs or idioms. Number two. When you do learn new words, don’t just learn them on their own. Learn them with the words that they are often used with. These are called collocations. Two or more English words that are often said together or used together. They sound right because native speakers often use them together.

For example, you throw or have or plan a party. You don’t make a party. Or instead of memorising the word, apply, learn the phrase “apply for a job” or “apply for a citizenship” or “apply for a visa”. You can learn hundreds of new individual words but you’ll be frustrated if you can’t put them together in a sentence that sounds correct and natural. When you learn words in groups, you’re learning the words with the verb, the nouns, the prepositions that they are commonly used with so you’ll sound much more natural when you speak.

Three. Learn new vocabulary through stories. Stories are full of new words, phrases and interesting expressions that show you how words come together in a really entertaining way. Just like the collocation method, you are learning new vocabulary in context. You’re not only learning what words to use but you’re learning how to use them. An important note to remember is that it’s important to challenge yourself but not feel completely overwhelmed and confused. Read stories that are fun, that are enjoyable and that help you to feel confident with English. Start with children’s books if you need to! “Emma are you serious? Start with children’s books?” Yes I’m serious! There are lots of great children’s books out there that are interesting, they’re funny, they’re full of adventure. Start with children’s books and when you’re reading them and it becomes too easy, you can try something a bit more challenging. In the description below I’ve linked to some great books that you can get started with.

In this wonderful day and age that we live in, you can also find audiobooks for almost any book that you can imagine and when you’re learning English, hearing how the words are pronounced is so important because English is not phonetic. In English, words are often not pronounced the way that you think they are, so listening and reading at the same time is even better! I use Audible to download my audiobooks and listen to them while I’m jogging, while I’m travelling, while I’m drifting off to sleep. And I’ve listed some really great books in the description box below. Plus, there’s a link down there to try your first audio book for free and I really recommend it.

Make sure you choose stories and topics that you love and that you’re interested in. On that note, TED Talks are also really great for this because there’s TED Talks on almost every topic imaginable and you can also follow the transcript as the speaker is speaking. I’ll link you to some of my favourite TED Talks in the description below too. Another great tip is to learn new vocabulary through songs. If you love listening to music, there is no doubt that learning new vocabulary through songs will help you to remember them. You need to find songs where the words are not sung too fast so that you can hear each word and how it’s pronounced. It’s more effective if you can download the lyrics and read them as you’re listening.

There are so many more benefits to learning vocabulary through songs! They get stuck in your head – if they’re good – so you’ll be singing them and practising them so often you won’t even feel like you’re doing it – in the shower, while you’re exercising, while you’re driving to work. Songs also use colloquial language or slang language that’s really common in English. You’ll also hear how words are contracted and reduced and it’s going to improve your speaking skills too.

If you’re singing out loud you’ll be improving aspects of your pronunciation. And the rhythm of music helps you to memorise new vocabulary. I’ll also link down there to some great websites where you can get lyrics for English songs and also, if you’ve got any suggestions about great English music that you like to listen to, make sure you add it to the comments. The next tip. Get better at using online dictionaries. Online dictionaries offer so many ways to practise and learn new English vocabulary. Let’s look at the word, produce, as an example.

When I look up this word in an online dictionary, I can read the definition, I can read and sometimes listen to the different verb forms, producers, produced, producing. I can read lots of example sentences that show how this word is used. I can also learn synonyms and collocations. You can also see the entire word family: produce, producer, production, productive, unproductive, productively, product, produce. You’ll also listen to the pronunciation and in this example, you’ll be surprised (maybe) to learn that the verb produce and the noun produce are pronounced differently. I recommend some online dictionaries below in the description box. I use Oxford online dictionaries and Macmillan online dictionaries. They also have really great apps for iPhone and for Android. So go and explore all of the amazing vocabulary building tools.

Plus, if you sign up to their email list you’re going to get sent a new English word every day and that’s just another way to get more practice with new vocabulary! OK, what about flashcards and labels? Flashcards have been a really favourite way of learning new vocabulary for years and years! But there are lots more options available for us today. You might prefer to hand-write English phrases on one side of a card and then translate them into your own native language on the other, but you can also use an SRS program such as Anki.

Now I downloaded Anki a few weeks ago and I think it’s amazing! It allows you to remember a large number of words in a short amount of time. And it also lets you work at your own pace so I guess it’s kind of like digital flashcards and as you practise, the program remembers what words you get wrong and it shows you them more frequently. So you get to practise some more! It’s a really efficient way of studying, I can’t recommend it highly enough! I use it while I’m studying Spanish.

Another tip – my favourite tip – is to describe the world around you, what’s happening around you. If you like using a dictionary to learn new vocabulary, getting into the habit of describing things that are happening around you in English is a really great way to study. When you’re unsure of words, look them up. It will help you to fill in the gaps in your vocabulary. So for example, when you’re at your local supermarket, ask yourself “Do I remember the names for everything that’s in the fridge?” or “How can I describe the woman waiting in line?” or “Do I know the English names of all of these vegetables?” When you can’t think of a word, you stop and you look it up.

Understand how it’s used, practise it and then use it again next time you’re at the supermarket. You can also do it on your way to work on the bus, as you’re going past things you can think of the vocabulary and try and fill in the gaps when you don’t know how to describe it or explain it. Number nine – my favourite – imitate a native speaker. Imitation and shadowing are great techniques to improve pronunciation and spoken English but they’re also awesome for learning new vocabulary, in context too. I have a huge range of imitation lessons that are available on different topics, so if you want to check them out you can go up here or I’ll link to them at the end of the video. And number ten. If you are confident enough, speak and practise being in conversations. By the time you’ve reached pre-intermediate to intermediate level, you already have enough vocabulary in you, you can communicate what you want.

The message might not be perfect but it’s enough and it’s at this point that practising real conversation is going to catapult your English skills and that means push them much further than if you just keep doing what you’re doing. In conversations, you’re developing core language skills simultaneously. You’re listening, you’re asking questions, you’re learning new vocabulary and context. You’re pushing yourself to find new ways to express your ideas. And if you’re not expressing yourself clearly enough, you have to find a new way of explaining yourself. And all of this is happening at once, there’s lots of pressure, there is no better way to build your language skills than immersing yourself inside an English conversation. There are so many different ways that you can do this. You can do it online, there are companies that connect you with people who want to study English like Cambly and Lingoda.

I’ll write a link to all of those in the description below too. Or in that link up there. I have a Facebook group that encourages conversation amongst women so if you’re a woman, you are welcome to join! It’s free and there is a link in the description below as well. So that’s it, my ten suggestions for improving your vocabulary. Try them out and let me know what you think! And if you’ve got some other suggestions about ways to improve your vocabulary, add them in the comments! Most importantly, you need to find ways to learn and practise vocabulary that will work best for you because hey, we all learn differently. We all have different priorities and different amounts of time to spend when we’re learning new languages. You need to create your own good study habits and find ways to enjoy English while you’re learning new words.

If you haven’t already subscribed to the mmmEnglish Channel, you should definitely do it! There’s always new lessons to keep you busy. Watch one of my imitation lessons right here to help you build your vocabulary and improve your pronunciation and become a better English speaker. If you want to watch some of the other mmmEnglish lessons, go right here. Thanks for watching and I’ll see you in the next lesson. Bye for now!. “}

The English Teacher DEMO

{“en”:”Levels Basic to Advanced Vocabulary Grammar Listening and reading Let’s view a typical study session Entering today, the platform informs me that I have 91 words or rules to review and that the review will take 26 minutes. Why review before seeing new material? This is due to principles of Spaced Learning Everyone has a forgetting curve, and Harvard studies have concluded that if you interfere with the forgetting curve at the proper times you are more likely to remember something for a lifetime Study is not the same thing as learning Learning is remembering for life. With spaced learning You learn more and study less Here the question is shown and the answer is requested This is the probability that I have of having learned the item. These are the seconds that I have to answer Using this option forces me to give responses only from my head and avoids the use of hand-written notes and copies This is the number of errors that I can make If I make many mistakes, the system realizes I have problems in learning it, and flags it for more frequent reviews.

I continue with my review of today I get to the last questions Letu2019s look at the history of the word that Iu2019ve just answered. The first time I saw it was on March 1 I answered quickly and correctly so the system scheduled it to be reviewed for two weeks later That day I also answered correctly and quickly so the review was set for April 14th After 30 days of not having seen the word I easily remembered it without help so now the system considered it learned and and removes it from the automatic review process In total, I saw the word “HAPPY” only 3 times Last question As you can see, this item is almost learned.

This is the history of this word on its way to be learned On November 5 I took the quiz and answered incorrectly so it was scheduled to be reviewed three days later I didnu2019t remembered that day either, so the next quiz was scheduled even closer As you see, the more I have trouble learning the more frequent are the rehearsals At later dates I answered correctly so the rehearsals were increasingly spaced out in days until the exam on April 14 This day is very important because if I answer the question correctly the system will consider it learned and will retire it from the automatic review process It would be considered learned because 62 days have passed since the last time I had seen it and if I answered correctly and unaided the likelihood of remembering it for life will be close to 100% The higher the probability of having learned something (i.e.

To remember for life) the more demanding the system is Let’s see why On November 5 I saw this word “teaspoon” which had a 37% chance of being learned and only had 35 seconds to answer and could not make more than 2 errors In contrast, when I reviewed it on January 11 I had 20 seconds to answer and I was allowed to make 0 errors Start a new lesson Now, we can study new material I choose how many items I want to study in this session Here I have what I must learn examples notes The notes try to make learning fun Voice Recorder Ability to record and compare pronunciation Most of the content is in English but the student can always get help in the native language to avoid getting stuck Two available dictionaries The course has two dictionaries obtainable by double-clicking any word If the student double-clicks a common word probably he or she is a student who is just starting to learn English and therefore the word is translated directly into Spanish If the word is not commonly used, the word is defined in plain English in order to have the student immersed in English for as long as possible Even when the dictionary of non-common words is shown the definition can be translated by clicking on it Sentence translator If getting the meaning word for word is not enough you can also select an entire sentence and get its translation clock This clock shows the total time of study today After three minutes of inactivity, the clock stops share remarks Students can also post comments on each word or rule studied for personal use or if they want to share them with friends or the community at large Personalized mp3 lessons After a few days of study the platform has already identified what material I have trouble remembering Then I may ask it to assemble an mp3 sound file so I can listen to it on my iPod, smart phone, DVD, etc This allows me to study while traveling to my school or university, before sleeping etc.

The mp3 file is personalized It contains only my mistakes I download it as many times as I want So I study wherever and whenever Besides studying using a Web browser you can also do it on iPhone, iPad, or Android based devices Finally, let’s consider the stats page This is the total number of lessons in the course which I have studied all I’ve learned 3,101 of them This is the progress of study, which is related to the two previous bars I may have studied the whole course, but have learned only a portion of it When the progress bar reaches 100% the course is already learned that is, the likelihood of remembering it for a lifetime is close to 100% Studying is not the same as learning The most advanced program to learn English”}

Get Up Early, Study English, and Build Momentum

{“en”:”Hello. This is Jack from tofluency.com. I help English learners reach a high level of English. Now, in this video I want to talk about a morning routine because getting your morning right usually means the rest of your day is going to be good too and a lot of people talk about the importance of a morning routine when it comes to success in any kind of field and this is the same for English learning too. A couple of complaints or a couple of things that English learners always say to me… first one: I don’t have enough time to learn english I don’t have enough time to learn English. Now, I made a video about that, which you can check out, but one way to get around this is to get up early and do twenty minutes in the morning… okay, so get up twenty minutes earlier than you normally do and to learn english for those twenty minutes There are a couple of reasons or really good reasons to do this…

Firstly, it’s going to give you more time on your English – it’s going to allow you to do more in English if you get up 20 minutes earlier. This can give you an extra 20 minutes each day to learn English. Secondly, if you do something in the morning, then you’re more likely to do it again later in the day. So, if you do something in English you feel motivated you feel like you have achieved something, and you’ll be more you’ll be more likely to do something again during your break, on the way to work, at lunch time, when you get home… because there’s something called the snowball effect and when you think about snowball or building a snowman… when you roll it down the hill it’s it’s hard to get started but once it gets moving it gets bigger and bigger and bigger because the snow gathers on the small snowball and you can think about this when learning English too.

If you do something in the morning and it gives you the motivation and the energy to continue learning English throughout the day. You might be saying, “I don’t want to get up earlier you know I don’t want to wake up earlier… wake up twenty minutes earlier.” What I can say to this: give it a try. Try it out… try to wake up twenty minutes earlier and see if it works for you – it doesn’t work for everyone, you know, and it depends on your schedule – you might have an incredibly busy schedule… you might have children (I know)… I have a son and I find it difficult to do something in the morning but when I do wake up a little bit earlier and do something my days are always much better.

I feel more motivated to continue doing what I want to do. And I’ve done this with Spanish in the past too… when I do something in Spanish in the morning, I know I’m going to do more for the rest of the day and I know that I’ve accomplished what I needed to do so it’s a very good thing to try and I really want to hear your thoughts on this, you know, are you going to try this and if you do let me know how it goes. So again, try to wake up or wake up twenty minutes earlier do English and then see how this is. commit to this for a week maybe even a month and see how it goes for you it can really help if you say things like I’m too busy to learn English and it can also help you to stay consistent to do something in English every day.

So, if you have enjoyed this video, please like it and share it. Thank you for watching and I’ll see you next time. “}

Learn English through Funny story Mr Bean (level 2)

{“en”:”It was Mr. Bean’s birthday, and he wanted to enjoy it! What could he do? ‘How can I make this important day a happy day?’ he thought. ‘I know. I’ll go out to a restaurant for dinner this evening! I’ll enjoy that. ‘ Mr. Bean didn’t often eat in restaurants. They were sometimes very expensive. And he sometimes did things wrong when he was in a new or strange place. Oh dear! Life wasn’t easy for Mr. Bean! That evening, Mr. Bean put on a clean shirt. He put on his best coat and trousers. He put on his best shoes. Then he drove to a restaurant in the centre of town. He arrived at eight o’clock and went inside.

It was a very nice restaurant. Everybody was wearing their best clothes, and there were flowers on every table. ‘I’m going to like it here, ‘ thought Mr. Bean. ‘This is a good restaurant for my birthday dinner. ‘ The manager met him at the door. ‘Good evening, sir, ‘ he said. ‘How are you? Would you like a table for one?’ ‘Yes, please, ‘ said Mr. Bean. ‘Follow me, sir, ‘ said the manager. He walked across the room to a table, and Mr. Bean went after him. ‘Here you are, sir, ‘ said the manager. ‘This is a nice table. ‘ He pulled the chair away from the table.

Then he waited for Mr. Bean to sit down. Mr. Bean looked at him. ‘Why is he taking my chair away?’ thought Mr. Bean. ‘What’s he doing?’ And he pulled the chair away from the manager and sat down quickly. When the manager went away, Mr. Bean sat quietly for a minute. Then he remembered something. He took a birthday card and an envelope out of his jacket. Next, he took out a pen and wrote ‘Happy Birthday, Bean’ inside the card. Then he put the card into the envelope and wrote his name on the outside of it. He put it on the table, and put his pen back into his jacket. After a minute or two, Mr. Bean pretended to see the card for the first time. ‘Oh! A card – for me?’ he said. He opened the envelope and took out the card. He read it carefully. ‘Now that’s nice!’ he said. ‘Somebody remembered my birthday!’ And he stood the card on his table.

The manager arrived with the menu and gave it to Mr. Bean. Mr. Bean started to read it. ‘Oh, dear!’ he thought. ‘Everything’s very expensive! What can I have?’ Mr. Bean got out his money. He had a ten-pound note and some coins. He put the money on to a plate. ‘How much have I got?’ he said, and he moved the money round on the plate. ‘Ten, eleven… And forty, fifty, fifty-five! Eleven pounds and fifty-five pence. ‘ He looked at the menu again. What could he eat for eleven pounds fifty-five? The manager came to his table. ‘Are you ready, sir?’ he asked. ‘Yes, ‘ said Mr. Bean. He put his finger on the menu. ‘I’ll have that, please.

‘ The manager looked at the menu. ‘The steak tartare, sir. Yes, of course. ‘ ‘Yes, ‘ said Mr. Bean. ‘Steak. ‘ The manager took the menu and went away. Mr. Bean sat and looked round the restaurant. There were a lot of people in the room. There was a man and a woman at the next table. They ate and talked. Suddenly, a waiter arrived at Mr. Bean’s table with a bottle of wine. ‘Would you like to try the wine, sir?’ he said. ‘Oh, yes please, ‘ said Mr. Bean. The waiter put some wine in Mr. Bean’s glass and Mr. Bean had a drink. It was very nice! He smiled, and the waiter tried to put more wine into the glass. Of course, the waiter was right. First, the customer tries his wine. When he is happy with it, the waiter gives him more wine. But Mr. Bean didn’t know this, and he quickly put his hand across the glass. ‘No, thank you, ‘ he said. ‘I don’t drink wine when I’m driving.’ The waiter looked at him strangely – and walked away.

He didn’t say, ‘Why did you try the wine when you didn’t want it, you stupid man!’ Mr. Bean took the knife from the table and started to play with it. He pretended to be a bad man. He pretended to push the knife into somebody. But he didn’t really want to kill anybody, of course. It was a game. The woman at the next table looked at him angrily, and Mr. Bean quickly moved the knife. Next, he hit the glasses and plate on his table with it. Ping, ping, ping they went! And after a minute, he played the song ‘Happy Birthday’ on the glasses. He smiled and thought, ‘I’m very clever!’ But the woman at the next table didn’t think, ‘That’s clever!’ or ‘Oh yes, that’s funny!’ She thought, ‘That man’s really stupid!’ And she looked hard at Mr. Bean. Mr. Bean put the knife down and looked at his napkin. ‘It’s a very nice napkin, ‘ he thought. The waiter saw Mr.

Bean looking at his napkin. He didn’t say anything, but suddenly – flick! – he opened it for Mr. Bean. ‘That’s clever, ‘ thought Mr. Bean. ‘I’ll try that!’ And he began to move his napkin. Flick! Flick! Flick! Suddenly, the napkin flew out of his hand. It flew across on to the next table. The woman at the table looked round again. But Mr. Bean pretended not to see her. His face said, ‘It’s not my napkin!’ A minute later, the waiter arrived with his food. There was a large cover on the plate and Mr. Bean couldn’t see the food. But he gave the waiter the money on the table. Customers don’t usually give a waiter money when he arrives with the food. But the waiter didn’t say anything. He took the money and put it in his jacket.

Mr. Bean was happy. ‘I’m doing everything right, ‘ he thought. The waiter took the cover off the plate and walked away. Mr. Bean looked at the food in front of him. He put his nose near the meat and smelled it. Then he put his ear next to it. ‘What’s this?’ he thought. He put some of the meat into his mouth. Suddenly, the manager arrived at his table. ‘Is everything all right, sir?’ he asked. ‘Are you happy with everything?’ ‘Mmmmm, ‘ said Mr. Bean. He smiled. The manager smiled, too. He walked away – and Mr. Bean’s face changed. There was no smile now. ‘Aaagh!’ he thought. ‘They didn’t cook this meat!’ But he had to eat it. ‘I don’t want people to think that I’m stupid,’ he thought. ‘But I’ll never ask for steak tartare again! Never!’ He pushed his plate away. But then the waiter went past his table. ‘Is everything all right, sir?’ he asked. ‘Oh, yes,’ said Mr. Bean. He smiled. ‘Yes, everything’s very nice, thank you.’ He smiled and pretended to eat some meat.

But the waiter went away before Mr. Bean put it into his mouth. ‘What can I do with it?’ he thought. ‘I can’t eat this. Where can I hide it?’ Then he had an idea. Carefully, he put the meat into the mustard pot and put the cover on it. ‘Where can I put some now?’ he thought. ‘I can’t eat it, so I’ve got to hide all of it. Oh, yes, the flowers!’ He took the flowers out of the vase. But then the manager went past, so Mr. Bean pretended to smell the flowers. ‘Mmm, very nice!’ he said. The manager smiled and walked away. Quickly, Mr. Bean put some meat into the vase and pushed the flowers in on top of it.

He looked round the table. ‘Where next?’ he thought. ‘Yes! The bread!’ He took his knife and cut the bread roll. Then he quickly ate the middle of it. Now he could push some meat inside the roll. He did this, then he put the roll down. He looked at the meat on his plate. ‘There’s a lot of it, ‘ he thought. ‘Where can I hide it now?’ He looked at the small plate on the table. Perhaps he could hide some meat under the plate. He looked round. ‘Nobody’s watching me, ‘ he thought. So he took more meat from the big plate in front of him, and put it under the small plate. Then he pushed down hard with his hand. The waiter walked past his table again. Mr. Bean smiled at him and put his arm on the plate. After the waiter went away, he pushed down on the small plate again. ‘That’s better, ‘ he thought. ‘Now you can’t see the meat. Good. But there’s more meat. Where can I hide it?’ He looked round the table. ‘The sugar pot!’ he thought. ‘But it’s got sugar in it. What can I do?’ He thought quickly, then he put some sugar into a wine glass.

Next, he put some of the meat into the sugar pot. Then he put the sugar from the wine glass on top of it. ‘Good!’ he thought. ‘Nobody can see it in there. ‘ Suddenly, Mr. Bean could hear music. ‘Where’s that coming from?’ he thought. He looked round – and saw a man with a violin. After a minute or two, the man came across to Mr. Bean’s table and played for him.

Mr. Bean smiled. ‘This is nice, ‘ he thought. Then the man saw Mr. Bean’s birthday card, and the music changed. The man started to play ‘Happy Birthday’! The people at the other tables looked round when they heard the song. ‘Who’s having a birthday?’ they thought. Then they saw Mr. Bean and smiled at him. Mr. Bean smiled back at them. He pretended to eat some of the meat, but he didn’t put it into his mouth. The man with the violin walked round Mr. Bean’s table and watched him. He played his violin and waited for Mr. Bean to eat the meat. And he waited… and waited… and waited… ‘I’ll have to eat some,’ thought Mr. Bean. ‘He’ll only go away when I eat it. ‘ So he put the meat into his mouth. And the man with the violin turned away to the next table. The meat was in Mr. Bean’s mouth, but he didn’t want to eat it. He wanted to put it somewhere. But where? He looked at the man with the violin. He moved quickly. He pulled open the back of the man’s trousers and opened his mouth. The meat fell inside the trousers! He smiled.

‘That was clever, ‘ he thought. The man with the violin moved round the next table. He played a song to the man and the woman. The music was very beautiful. They listened and drank their wine. They watched the man with the violin, so their eyes weren’t on Mr. Bean. Nobody’s eyes were on Mr. Bean. He saw this, and he had an idea. Mr. Bean quickly took the woman’s bag from the floor. He opened it and pushed some meat inside it. Then he put the bag on the floor again. But when he did this, he accidentally put his foot out. The waiter walked past with some plates of food – and he fell over Mr. Bean’s foot! The plates fell on to Mr. Bean’s table, and on to the floor. There was a loud CRASH!, and the people at the other tables looked up quickly. ‘What happened?’ they said.

Then they saw the waiter on the floor. ‘Oh, dear!’ they said. Now Mr. Bean had another idea. Here was the answer to his problem! He moved very quickly. He pushed the meat from his plate on to the table with the other food. Then he pretended to be very angry. ‘Look, you stupid man!’ he said to the waiter. ‘Oh, look at this!’ The waiter got up from the floor. ‘I’m sorry, sir, ‘ he said. ‘I’m really very sorry. ‘ The manager arrived at the table. ‘I’m very sorry, too, sir, ‘ he said. ‘Oh, the food-!’ ‘Yes, it’s everywhere!’ said Mr. Bean. ‘Look! It’s in the mustard pot. It’s in the bread roll. It’s in the vase of flowers.’ He took the woman’s bag from the floor.

‘And it’s in here!’ He pulled open the back of the violin player’s trousers. ‘And here!’ The waiter couldn’t understand it. ‘Go back to the kitchen, ‘ the manager told him, and the waiter went away. Then the manager turned to Mr. Bean. ‘Please, sir, ‘ he said. ‘Come with me.’ ‘What?’ said Mr. Bean. ‘Oh, yes, all right.’ The manager took Mr. Bean to a clean table. ‘Sit here, sir, ‘ he said. Mr. Bean sat down. ‘Thank you, ‘ he said. The manager opened Mr. Bean’s napkin. Then he got the birthday card from the other table. He put it on Mr. Bean’s clean table. ‘Thank you,’ said Mr. Bean. The man with the violin came across and played ‘Happy Birthday’ to him again.

Mr. Bean smiled. Now everything was all right. ‘Now I can start again, ‘ he thought. ‘And this time I’ll do everything right.’ The waiter arrived at Mr. Bean’s table. He put a plate in front of Mr. Bean. The manager smiled and took off the cover. Mr. Bean looked down. And he stopped smiling. There, in front of him, was a very large plate – of steak tartare!”}
