<Listening>

耳慣れている
“How much does it cost ….?”
は、”does”を “will” や”would”に置き換えられている
場合が多くあります。
意味に違いはありませんが、すこしスマシタ表現です。

<Reading>

過去進行形は、単純に現在進行形の過去バージョンでしょうか?
次の文章を読んで、じっくり考えてみて下さい。
When my sister opened the door, I was studying.
ドアが開かれるのは一瞬で完結する行為、学習は、それ以前に
始まりドアが開かれた時にはまだ続いています。
過去進行形の示す所は、行動の持続時間の(ある程度の)長さです。
では、次の文章は?
While I was watching TV, my brother was sleeping.
この場合は、二つの異なる行動が同時進行していた事を表しています。

Thank you for you attendance!
See you shortly<3
