Hello.
And welcome to Living English.
Last time in our drama Anne got a letter from her brother...
... telling her that they doesn't want her to look for him.
Today Anne gets advice from a professor about what she should do.
Here.
I don't know what to do.
I think you should go to the police.
But he says I shouldn't look for him.
[...].
But a year is a long time.
If I were you, I'd report your brother missing.
Should I tell my parents about the letter?
Oh, your poor parents.
They must be so worried.
I think you should tell them what you know.
What if I can't find him?
Have faith.
I'm sure you will.
You know your brother.
You'll find him.
All then. [...] out.
Well.
Good luck, miss Lee.
But I don't want to do it.
Um.
Why don't you advertise in the newspaper?
Put a photograph of your brother there. Somebody might recognise him.
[...] that.
My advice is, never give up.
Thank you for your hope.
When you find your brother...
... say 'hello' to him from me.
I will.
So Anne will keep looking for her brother.
The professor Gram told Anne some things she could do to find her brother.
Telling people things in this way is called giving advice...
... or making suggestions.
Let's listen to the advice Gram gives Anne.
I think you should go to the police.
Gram makes it clear that this is his openion by saying 'I think'.
It's what he thinks is the best thing to do.
What other word that he uses that shows that he is giving advice?
Listen again.
I think you should go to the police.
He says 'should'.
We use 'should' to give advice or make suggestions.
Try saying 'I think you should go to the police' with him.
I think you should go to the police.
Another way of saying this is
I think you ought to go to the ppolice.
'Ought to' has the same meaning as 'should'.
We use it for things we think are good or right to do.
What word do you use for things that are wrong to do?
Listen.
But he says I shouldn't look for him.
The opposite of 'should' is 'shouldn't' or 'should not'.
We use it to advice against doing things ...
... such as 'You shouldn't smoke'.
We can also use 'should' in questions if we're asking for advice.
Listen to Anne.
Should I tell my parents about the letter?
Know that when we ask a question 'should' comes before the pronoun -- words like 'I' and 'you'.
When you say 'should' after a pronoun ...
... such as 'I' -- 'I should tell my parents'...
... it is a statement ...
... saying what you think is a right thing to do.
When you say 'should' before 'I'...
... 'Should I tell my parents?' ...
... it's a question...
... asking if that is the right thing to do.
Let's listen to Gram's answer.
Your poor parents,
... they must be so worried.
I think you should tell them what you know.
Again Gram gives his advice in the same way.
I think you should.
Now it's your turn to give me some advice.
I'm hungry.
What should I do?
I think you should eat something.
I'm thursty.
What should I do?
I think you should drink something.
My hair is too long.
What should I do?
I think you should have a haircut.
Should Anne keep looking for her brother?
I think Anne should keep looking for her brother.
Gram suggests some ways that Anne can keep looking.
Listen.
Why don't you advertise in the newspaper?
Put a photograph of your brother there. Somebody might recognise him.
Gram says 'Why don't you?'
This is not a question he wants an answer to.
It's a way of offering a suggestion or an idea.
Why don't you advertise in the newspaper?
Say it with Gram.
Why don't you advertise in the newspaper?
Anne doesn't answer 'yes' or 'no'.
She just accepts the advice.
Listen.
[...].
Here is Michelle. Hello, Michelle.
Hello, Brenton.
Hello, everyone.
What should we do today?
Why don't we look at how to give advices?
What about?
How to look after a plant.
I just happened to have a plant here
Well, what do you need to do to keep a plant like this alive?
You have to water it.
If you don't water it, it will dye.
You have to.
That means you have no choise.
It's the only thing to do.
What's another way of saying 'have to'?
Must.
You must water the plant to keep it alive.
What else must you do?
Well.
You can just water it and it will live for a long time.
But if you want it to look healthy and keep growing you should feed it.
Feed it?
Give it a fertilizer.
You should give it a fertilizer like this
In the water.
Every month or so.
What else should you do?
You should put it in a bigger pot...
... when it's grown a bit more.
That's the advice, Michelle.
And now let's listen to some more good advices from Gram.
My advice is, never give up.
Never give up.
What does that mean Brenton?
It means 'don't stop trying' or 'keep doing'.
Let's keep going with what to do with plants.
See if you can remember.
You ...
... water a plant.
You must water a plant.
You could also say that you have to water a plant.
Yes, and you...
... feed a plant.
You should feed a plant.
Sometimes you...
... put it in a bigger pot.
You should put it in a bigger pot.
I just remember something.
What?
I should have watered my plants at home.
You don't have to water them everyday.
You can do it when you get home.
But they've shown us that you can use 'should' to talk about the past...
... as well as giving advice about the future.
How?
You said 'I should have watered my plants'.
We say 'should have' to things that would have been good to do in the past.
Or like saying 'I should have stop smoking years ago'.
Yes.
We use 'should have' to say we regret something...
... or we wish we had done something.
Like saying when you have done badly in an exam...
... 'I should have studied more'.
Or when a costomer's going...
... I should have put fuel in the car.
Yes.
And --
What do you say about this?
Someone...
... watered it.
Someone should have watered it.
Now let's think about another word that sounds like 'should'.
See if you can hear it in this clip.
If I were you, I'd report your brother missing.
"I'd" means 'I would'.
He said he would report her brother missing.
Yes, and he also says 'if I were you'.
What does that mean?
It's a way of giving advice again.
He means that it's what he would do if it were his problem.
Listen again.
If I were you, I'd report your brother missing.
Let's practice using the phrase 'if I were you'...
... about the plant.
You give me your advice.
First...
... about watering the plant.
If I were you...
If I were you I would water the plant.
Next about feeding the plant.
If I were you...
If I were you I would feed the plant.
Let's say I'm sick.
I should go home to bed.
What would you say to me?
If I were you...
If I were you I would go home to bed.
Let's say I'm thursty.
I should drink some water.
What would you say?
If I were you...
If I were you I would drink some water.
'Would' is a form of 'will'.
Remember that we use will for things we're going to do.
Yes.
We use 'will' for things we intend to do.
We use 'would' in a similar way...
... but to talk about situations we wish or imagine were going to happen.
The professor isn't going to report her brother missing.
It's not something he will do.
It's something he imagines he would do if he was in the same situation then.
Now see if you can use the right word -- 'will' or 'would'.
I wish it...
... stop raining.
I wish it would stop raining.
I... drive home later.
I will drive home later.
It...
... be good to be very rich.
It would be good to be very rich.
You can also use will to reassure someone...
... to make him feel better about what is going to happen.
Listen to Gram reassures Anne.
What if I can't find him?
Have faith.
I'm sure you will.
You know your brother.
You'll find him.
Gram uses 'will' in this way to say to Anne that he is sure...
... she will find her brother.
Today we learned some other things to say when giving advice.
And how to use the words 'should' and 'would'.
Next time we'll find out what to say when you're giving your oppenion about something...
... and the words we use to compare things.
Until then enjoy another look at today's episode of 'Sisters and Brothers'.
Bye.
Bye.
I don't know what to do.
I think you should go to the police.
But he says I shouldn't look for him.
Yes, [...] then.
But a year is a long time.
If I were you, I'd report your brother missing.
Should I tell my parents about the letter?
Your poor parents.
They must be so worried.
I think you should tell them what you know.
What if I can't find him?
Have faith.
I'm sure you will.
You know your brother.
You'll find him.
All then. [...] out.
Well.
Good luck, miss Lee.
But I don't want to do it.
Um...
Why don't you advertise in the newspaper?
Put a photograph of your brother there. Somebody might recognise him.
[...].
My advice is, never give up.
Thank you for your hope.
When you find your brother...
... say 'hello' to him from me.
I will.
