Продолжение «календарной» темы: дни недели. Послушайте разговор Дженнифер и Наташи.
Jennifer: —We know that today is… February 29. What’s the year?
-February 29, 2012. But this is the month, the day, and the year. But I also want to talk about which day of the week it is. If I focus on this, the question is “What is today’s date?” February 29. Can you ask this question?
-What is today’s date?
-But today is Wednesday. That question is different: “What day is today?”You can say “What day is today?” or “What day of the week is it?” Usually in conversation we ask, “What day is today?.. Is today Wednesday?” “What day of the week is it?” is also possible. So what day is today? (Вопрос о дне недели звучит иначе. Дженнифер дает разные варианты).
-Okay. We have twelve months, four seasons, three hundred sixty-five days… How many days of the week are there?
-Okay. That’s how many days in a month but I want to know how many days in one week.
-Seven. So we need to practice the seven days of the week. When we talk about seven days of the week here in the United States, for us the first day of the week is Sunday. It’s different. In Russia what’s the first day of the week?
-Monday. So here the first day of the week is Sunday. And just like with month, when we wright days of the week, we start with a big letter, capital letter. Sunday. What’s next? (Первый день недели в Америке — воскресенье. И названия дней пишутся с заглавной буквы).
-And finally? Back to Sunday. So listen and repeat. Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday. How many days are there in one week?
-Seven days. And what day is today?
-Wednesday. So what day is tomorrow?
-Okay. And what day was yesterday?
-Tuesday. You heard: today… Before that comes yesterday… And? Tomorrow.
-But this is the focus: What day is today? Today is Wednesday.
