Christmas Scene 1 Language Focus
音量
S: We'll be back with our Christmas celebrations a bit later. But first, let's have a quick look through all of that with our English language expert, Rob, from the British Consul. Hi, Rob.



R; Hi, Stephen. The Christmas tree looks, uh, colorful.



S: Well, I like it.



R: Well I really like Christmas. You know, the presents, the tree, the decorations.



S: Me, too.



R: In fact, that is what I want to talk about first. Christmas words. We saw lots of Christmas things there. Things that we only really say at that time of the year.



S: Like Father Christmas.



R: Like Father Christmas, yeah. And like Father Christmas, I've got this big sack here with some Christmas things inside. Let's have a look. A hat, a beard, that's all for now. The beard looks really good. And you suddenly look a part of that, Stephen.



S: I suddenly feel that.



R: And of course, the Christmas tree.



S: Not the one as good as mine.



R: Well, many homes in Britain put up a Christmas tree like that one on Christmas. Under the tree we put Christmas presents. And who brings the presents?



S: Father Christmas.



R: Right, we also call him Santa Claus. Santa Claus arrives by coming down the chimney. he comes down the chimney and puts the presents in a Christmas stockings. Now, how does Father Christmas travel?



S: In his sleigh, pulled by reindeer.



R: Reindeer. Reindeer pull Father Christmas' sleigh. And that's why you and Ashley left some food for the reindeer to eat. Now, what did you say about that Christmas tree, Stephen?



S: I said, it's not as good as mine.



Not as good as yours. OK, watch this.



S: It's as big as the tree Dad and Mom had last year, but it looks even better.



S: It's not as difficult as it looks.



I want you to look at that as as. It's a way of comparing things. First of all, you said, your tree is as big as the tree your mom and dad had.



S: It's as big as the tree Dad and Mom had last year, but it looks even better.



R: So it the tree is as big as your mom and dad's tree.



S: It's the same size. Let's say, I'm as tall as you.



R: But what about not as something as. As you said, for example, ice skating is not as difficult as it looks.



S: It's not as difficult as it looks.



R: That's means it's easier than it looks. if I say Ashley's not as tall as you, it doesn't just means you're different, it means Ashley's shorter than you. Let's look at one more as as example here.



S: Oh, come on, Ash, let's choose some Christmas decorations.



A: Well, I suppose so, as long as you don't get too much.



R: Ashley said, as long as you don't get too much. But that time, she wasn't comparing two things. As long as means only if. So she was saying, only of you don't get too much. Watch it again.



S: Oh, come on, Ash, let's choose some Christmas decorations.



A: Well, I suppose so, as long as you don't get too much.



S: I think I did get too much, didn't I?



R: Yes, maybe a little bit too much. As long as you remember that for the next year.



S: Absolutely, thanks, Rob.
