Hello and welcome to our first video!
In our first video we will demonstrate how to say hello and talk to new people. Alex is signing a friend up for an English lesson, showing skills that will be useful in registering for College or English courses.
During the day she meets Dimitris, a student new to Newcastle. They will use many phrases which may be useful meeting people for the first time.
The teachers also explain how to use ‘to be’ and personal pronouns, which are important to the conversations in the video.

Today I am going to be registering my friend Clare for an English class. Hope you come along. See you soon!

Yeah, yeah I am.

So today we talked about the present tense of a really important verb. The verb is: To Be. In the video, you saw that we used To Be when presenting each other. Dimitris presented himself to Alex. I can present myself. I am Clare. I am a teacher. Who are you? I’m talking to you! You, watching this video! Now let’s talk about the students who were registering. He is Dimitris. We use he because he is a boy. She is Alex. We use she because she is a girl. We are all in Newcastle. They are students. And they are students too.
So let’s recap! I am. You are. He is. She is. It is. We are. You are. They are.
Thanks for watching!
