(風暴中,天氣報告錄影)
記者: 準備好就拍得喇! In 5 seconds, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. I am reporting live from Central. As you can see, it is very windy. And…Excuse me. Sir. Why are you going out in this weather?

男途人: I very afraid of the wind. I aware of the dangers but I must back to be with my child. He so frightened.

記者: Well…

主持:陳淑莊

陳:嘩!原來我們隨時有機會用英文接受訪問, 錯在用了一些形容詞 (adjectives), 與 介詞 (prepositions)作為動詞; 正確的句式就是Adjectives , 或 prepositions加上 ‘be’! 例如現在式的: is, am, are與過去式的: was, were等等…英文的形容詞就是要靠它們去帶出發生的時態。

同學可以多閱字典, 去分別每個字是形容詞還是它本身已經是一個動詞, 從而決定是否需要加”Be”這些 Verb去帶出時態。再看片…

(天氣報告完畢)
記者:可以收工啦! 執野啦!

男途人:吓! 完架喇! 頭先我太緊張, 可唔可以比多次機會我答呀!

記者:個電視直播唻個喎! 邊有得再唻過架! 你即管試多次啦, 練習都好!

男途人:I am very afraid of the wind. I am aware of the dangers but I must be back to be with my child. He is so frightened.

記者: 咦! 咁你仲唔去睇你個仔!

男途人:oh! I forgot!!
