#222 Ferdinand (Trailer)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyJgGsZo2wA

Instructions:  Listen to the youtube video above and fill in the blanks in the transcript below (or write your answers on a piece of paper). Beginners can use the list of missing words and phrases, but if you're an advanced student, try to fill in the blanks just by listening to the video, without looking at the missing words and phrases.  The answers are given at the end of the transcript.

Main Features:  There are 3 important features in this video lesson.  1) The word "you" sounds like "ya" (twice).  The word "you" also sounds like "cha" once, in the phrase "they've got you" ("they gotcha").  2) The word "to" can sound like "ta", "da" or "na".  You'll hear it five times in this video, including the phrases "have to" ("hafta"), "need to be" ("need da be"), and "going to" ("gonna").  3) Sometimes the first verb is left out of questions.  For example, the question "Do you see that car over there?" might sound like "You see that car over there?"  The initial verb "do" is missing.  Or if you're going out with some friends but one of them isn't sure if he's going to come or not, then you might ask him, "Are you going to come with us tonight?", which might sound like "Ya gonna come with us tonight?"  The initial verb "are" is missing.

{The cat screeches because the woman poured some water on it.}

I'm Ferdinand.  You look at me and think "Big!"  You think "Scary!"  You think, "Well, _____________ not in a china shop."  Oh no!  Baby steps!  Baby steps!  Easy does it!  [2]  {Sneezes}  Sorry!

{Song [3]:  I was younger then. Take me back to when… And I've not seen the roaring fields in so long.  I know I've grown, but I can't wait to go home.  I'm on my way ["Ferdinand!!!"], driving at 90 [4] down...  We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill.}
