Hello everyone, Today we will continue discussing Love and Marriage. Look at the picture above. This is a picture I took of a Bangladeshi bride and groom at a wedding reception I attended in Dhaka, Bangladesh. In the photo below you can see me with my colleagues. I am wearing a traditional Bengali panjabi. We were a little embarrassed because all the Bangladeshi men wore European business suits.
Now let's listen to two people talking about Love and Marriage in Bangladesh. Some people in Bangladesh have arranged marriages. Let's listen to a conversation about arranged marriages on my friend Todd Beukens great website English Listening Lesson Library Online (ELLLO). Please listen to the conversation and do the quiz.
Now let's study some vocabulary. Please click the Vocabulary Flashcards tab above. Then scroll down and find the link to our SIT 英語総合 Vocabulary Flashcards. Click the link and sign into Quizlet. After that, scan the next reading and add unknown words to our flashcard set.
Before you read, make a list of words that you can usually hear in a love song.
One of my favourite love songs is First Love by Utada Hikaru. What's your favourite love song. Please post your answer as a comment.
See you next week!
