Hey everyone, I’m Teacher Tiffani and I want to thank you so much for joining me for another episode of the Speak English with Tiffani podcast. In today’s lesson we are going to listen to one English dialogue and learn 2 new English Vocabulary Words.

DIALOGUE

Ok, let’s begin with the dialogue:

This morning my father woke up early to get some work done. He wanted to delete all of his old emails and complete a few projects. Then he decided to build a fence in our backyard. He said that we needed a fence to delineate our property from our neighbor’s property. It was quite a busy day for him, but he accomplished all of his goals.

Again

This morning my father woke up early to get some work done. He wanted to delete all of his old emails and complete a few projects. Then he decided to build a fence in our backyard. He said that we needed a fence to delineate our property from our neighbor’s property. It was quite a busy day for him, but he accomplished all of his goals.

Ok great, now let’s go over the two new vocabulary words that were in the dialogue.

FIRST VOCABULARY WORD

The first vocabulary word was…
“Delete” (repeat)

Now, repeat after me…
“Delete” (repeat twice)

Ok, now let’s say it at a normal pace…

This vocabulary word means to remove or obliterate (written or printed matter).


EXAMPLES

So, let’s look at five examples using this vocabulary word.

The first example is…

“Who deleted the file?”
[Once again, this time repeat after me]

“Who deleted the file?”
