Conversation, Listening, Reading)
In this lesson When Pete and Anna meet with Director
Kelly, they arrive late. Both tell very different
stories about their morning. A show begins.
Watch the video and then read the video script.
Anna: Today, Pete and I are meeting with a consultant who will help us with our
new show. Yesterday, Pete had promised to meet me here at 8:00 am. but he did
not come on time.
Prof Bot: Uh-oh. It’s bad to be late for a business meeting. But while we wait
for Pete, let’s talk about a new verb tense -- past perfect! You know the past
tense, right? Like, "Pete promised to meet me here at 8:00 a.m." Past perfect is
a little different. When we talk about two things in the past, we can use the
past perfect for the first event. Put "had" before the past participle. "Pete
had promised he would meet Anna." Here's your assignment: find sentences with
the past perfect tense. Remember, look for "had!"
Kelly: You two are late -- exactly 43 minutes late! What happened?
Anna: He had to get his "special" coffee -- SPECIAL coffee!
Pete: She had to feed her birds -- HER birds!
Kelly: Okay, I can see already that you need my help. You can’t both talk at the
same time. You have to take turns. Alright, Anna, you go first.
Anna: Sure. Kelly, see, Pete and I live in the same building. So, we decided to
meet at 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 a.m. to come to work together. I had waited 15 minutes
when Pete arrived!
Anna: After Pete had wasted time waiting for coffee, we were late. I left you a
Kelly: Hum. I didn’t get that message.
Anna: Oh. Sorry.
Prof. Bot: Anna left a message. That’s the right thing to do. Did you find some
examples of the past perfect sentences? I did. Anna said,
Anna: "After Pete had wasted time waiting for coffee, we were late.
Look at that coffee! It looks more like dessert! Okay, keep watching for past
Pete: Yeah, that’s not why we’re late. This is why we’re late: I had arrived on
time at 8:00 a.m. but didn’t see Anna. She was standing behind a tree. I think
she was hugging it. I always walk to work. But she said that would take too long
and that a scooter would be much faster. It was awful. I hated it. And it added
too much time to our commute!
Then Anna stopped by a pond to feed the birds. She had named them after
characters from books and yelled the names out loud … Romeo! Juliet! Sherlock!
By the time she had fed all the birds, we were late.
Kelly: This is what I think. You two see the same event very differently. Does
this happen often with you two?
Kelly: Okay. This is good. This is good! It’s good to see things differently. I
have an idea: we will call the show "He Said, She Said." For every story, you
tell a different point of view.
Anna: That is a great idea, Kelly! Pete, we are different. That’s why I thought
of you for this job!
Kelly: I think you two understand perfectly.
Anna: Let’s get to work!
Kelly: She named the birds? Really?
