ParaNorman: Greetings - Functional Language

I love this animated movie. I must say, though, that it is pretty scary. I used this scene for true beginners. By the way, this movie is a must!

I. Read the greetings below. Practice saying them out loud. Pay attention to intonation! You may watch the scene twice.

( ) Hello.
( ) Good morning.
( ) How are you?
( ) How do you do?
( ) How is it going?
( ) Hi, nice to see you, guys.
( ) Yeah, good to see you.
( ) How (are) you doing?
( ) How's everything?
( ) Hi, you look nice today.
( ) How is it hanging?


II. Watch the movie segment and check the greetings in I that you hear.



video

III.
Write a short dialog using the expressions in Exercise I.

IV. Role-Play the dialog.
