Things you do before you actually start studying [Happy Together/2020.03.19]On March 24, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
– Hello. / – This is exactly how I remember it. (They said they will study.) – Pardon? / – Pardon? Yes, we’re trying our best. Thank you. (Where are they now?) I used to use this pen in school. They went to a stationery store to have some fun. – Saeho and I have a lot in common. / – That’s true. You lack concentration just like me. – Yes, and I blame others. / – You’re distracted too. I also blame myself a lot just like you. Whether you lose weight or study English, I believe having good gear is important to do anything well. To study, I need writing instruments and other supplies that I like. So I prepared my own gear. Hey, students who get bad grades take like an hour to choose mechanical pencil lead. You and I are doing everything else other than studying. I need some good mechanical pencil lead. When you don’t like mechanical pencil lead, – it’s hard to concentrate. / – That’s true. – How you begin is important. / – We’re the type who would study hard if they have good mechanical pencil lead. Isn’t this it? – Mechanical pencil lead. / – Is this it? Yes, I think that’s it. Don’t we need a pencil case too? A highlighter is important too. We should buy Korean products because… They don’t need all that. They’ll be cramming. – They don’t have time for that. / – Exactly. Aren’t these sunglasses so cute? – My goodness. / – Those are cute. (They came to get study supplies,) (but they’re distracted already.) – Promise you won’t get upset. / – Why? You really looked like Zion.T in those. Zion.T? (Zion.T, Jinkyung’s little brother) (she lost under Yanghwa Bridge) (They keep picking up) (study supplies.) How much is it, sir? 47 dollars? I bought a lot. – You know… / – Is the pencil case 10 dollars? We went on a shopping spree at a stationery store. How did you spend 50 dollars at a stationery store? You spent 47 dollars on study supplies? It just happened that way. (Oh, my. That must be…) Hi, kids. – That’s Kang Hodong. / – Kang Hodong? Did they say I was Kang Hodong? (Happy Together Producer’s Log:) (Always show funny parts twice.) Some children thought we were shooting “Dining Together”. – “Dining Together”? / – Yes, they got confused. They must’ve thought Jinkyung was Lee Gyeonggyu. Exactly. They were surprised when I turned around. (The kids thought they were Hodong and Gyeonggyu.) “Dining Together”. Since we were being filmed while walking around the neighborhood, – I see. / – they got confused. – What is it? / – I think we’re here. It’s a guest house. (Where did Team Rabbit go to study?) (The doctor advised them to find) (a quiet place without distractions.) We both have a busy schedule, and it’s hard to make time to study. We wanted to do it properly, so we prepared a place to study. (The rabbits entered the study room.) It’s here. Are all the good days gone? I’m a little worried. The other team has already studied a lot. But we really need to start studying now. (It’s 3 days before the test. It’s time to study!) We have no more excuses now. Absolutely. We should start studying. I’m going to use this as a drawer. (Doorbell rings.) – Someone is here. / – Could it be our teachers? Finally… (Is it going to begin now?) Just a second. – Hello, hello. / – Oh, my. Hello. It’s been a while. – Have you been well? / – Their teachers came. – I’ve been well. / – Hello. – It’s good to see you again. / – You too. – Oh, my. / – Hello. – Hello. / – Oh, my. Hello. – Pardon? / – Did you enjoy your free time? – I did enjoy myself. / – We always enjoy ourselves. After we took the TOEIC test, Saeho and I ate together at a barbecue restaurant three times. (Forget studies and let’s drink for now.) – We drank that day. / – You said you would. They drank a lot instead of studying. However, you were the top of all. – That’s right. / – The top of the class. – You see, / – Yes? – if we don’t get high scores, / – Yes? your students will stop enrolling in your classes. (Shock and awe) – I’m serious. / – It’s up to you two whether – we’ll keep or lose our jobs. / – Exactly. Our jobs are at stake. – That’s right. / – You have a responsibility to us. – Then before we begin, / – Yes. let’s have an English conversation about how we’re going to study. That’s a great idea. I want to see how good you two are. You’ll evaluate us? All right. – Let’s do it. / – It feels like – we’re entertainers now. / – Let’s do it. (He starts the conversation.) You searched our names on the internet? Oh, my. Did you find any fun clips or… Yes, I… I found your video. – “Video”? / – Yes. Yes. That was easy. – You should say something too. / – That was good. – He did well. /- He understood what you said. You have good listening skills. – He understood every word. / – Wait a minute. – Wait a minute. / – Okay. What did he just say? He asked if we searched his name on the internet. I knew it. That was good. – Great. / – Did you think I didn’t understand? Both of you did great. You’ll do well on the test. You’re already good enough. Then shall we begin the infernal, intensive class now? – We’ll do our best. / – Let’s do this. – We can do it. / – You can do it. – You can do it. / – We’ll try to concentrate. Let’s concentrate for two hours and achieve as much as possible. – I’ll give you a question. / – Okay. (Class 1, Lesson on LC begins.) B. C. D. Okay. That’s all. Now, we’ll give you two a chance to choose the correct answer. – Which one of you will go first? / – I… – Which one of you will go first? / – I… – I wrote it down. / – Me too. – The answer is A. / – A. – What? Goodness. / – That’s… 1, 2, 3. – Correct. / – Correct. (A is correct.) – Correct. / – Correct. (It’s a piece of cake for 1st and 2nd places.) Wait. This is amazing. You both passed the first question easily. They passed it easily. This question is quite difficult. – Number 2? / – Number 2. (A picture of a woman putting flowers in a vase) – Hold on. By any chance… / – D. – D? / – Yes. – Wait. / – Okay. Saeho picked D. I chose C. C? They chose different ones. One of you chose the correct answer. Could it be Jinkyung? – The answer is… 1, 2, 3. / – 3. C. Jinkyung is impressive. She has a knack for it. It was easy to understand. It’s amazing that she heard this sentence. It’s because… Look. She heard this part. – That’s what makes her amazing. /. – It’s difficult. – You heard of passive voice, right? / – Yes. What is “passive voice”? Passive voice is… (If you can’t follow this,) (don’t give up and focus!) (The TOEIC kid, Kanghoon, will explain it in the way) (easy enough for an elementary school kid.) (Whenever something bad happens) (To someone) Ta-da. Then I, the TOEIC kid, Kanghoon, always show up. If you were taken aback when he mentioned passive voice, don’t panic and focus on me for a short while. Passive voice may sound difficult, but it’s actually not. To put it simply, it means to be the object of an action. “I trampled on an ant.” This is active voice. If you describe it from the ant’s perspective, you say, “An ant was trampled on by a man.” This is called passive voice. The difference between “to trample” and “to be trampled”. Don’t forget. – Jinkyung, you understand, right? / – Yes. I think that Jinkyung can get a really high score in the LC part. – Jinkyung got / – Right. five more points than me in the LC part. – That’s right, she did. / – I got a higher score. (The past of Jinkyung, the girl with a simple brain) (Everyone called her stupid.) (What number is it?) (Everyone laughed at her.) (She heard she has low intelligence) (and damaged hippocampus.) – We see that doctor quite a lot. / – My gosh. He didn’t make up any of what he said. (She was looked down on in the old days.) (But the truth about her will be) (uncovered after 20 years.) – For the first question… C. / – C. – What about you? / – B. She chose B. The answer is B. – Is it B? / – She’s amazing. – Jinkyung, you’re incredible. / – Indeed. – A. / – A? – A? / – What about you, Jinkyung? – C. / – C? The answer is C. (Jinkyung got another question right!) I can’t believe this. – C. / – B. – B? Okay. Then… / – They chose different ones again. The answer is C. – You got them all right. / – This is unbelievable. Why can’t you write it down? I heard “been”. And I heard the whole sentence and understood that a cup is next to the machine. She might take my first place. (He’s worried.) I predict that she will get a high score in the LC part. I’m not so good at it. I think that the teachers overly complimented me in order to boost my morale. I think that’s the case. I think I’m better at the LC part than the RC part.
