This activity will help learners eliminate problems with these functional words by giving them immediate feedback on the mistakes they are making. It will also help students develop their use of more natural, varied and complex sentence structures.

triangle Script 대본 Roteiro Texto

Jim: Can I talk to you?

Jim: Aurora, I know nothing I can say will make this okay. But please listen. I was so alone for so long. It felt like I was disappearing.

Jim: The night I first saw you, I was ready to... You saved my life. And I know that's no excuse for what I did. I read everything you wrote, and I fell in love with your voice and with the way your mind works. I fell in love with you.

Jim: And all of a sudden, it was like I wasn't trapped anymore. My pointless life suddenly had meaning.

Jim: And I wish I could take it back. But I can't. Aurora, I don't want to lose you.

Aurora: I don't care! I don't care what you want! I don't care why you woke me up! You took my life!

Aurora: I envy you, Arthur.

Arthur: How so?

Aurora: You have a purpose. You're always happy.

Arthur: How's your book coming along?

Aurora: I've never written about myself before. I think it's some of the best work I've ever done, and I don't even know why I'm doing it. There's only one person who could read it, and I can't stand him.

Arthur: They say time heals all wounds.

Aurora: Broken hearts aren't that simple, Arthur. You wouldn't understand.

Jim: Arthur! Tuesday's my day with Arthur.

Aurora: It's Wednesday. The bar's all yours.

Arthur: What'll you have? Whiskey?

Jim: Coffee.

Friend: Aurora! We love you! What are we going to do without you? We'll miss you so... You're the bravest woman I know. Bye, Aurora! I promise that I will think of you every day. When you wake up, I'll be gone, but just know that I will never forget you. You're my best friend. You were never happy here. I know. Nothing was ever enough for you. You know, you don't have to go. You could do whatever it is you have to do right here. But, since you're going, here's my wish. I hope you finally find someone who fills your heart, and I hope you let him in. I hope you realize you don't have to do something amazing to be happy. You know, have fun, take chances. Um, okay. I love you, Aurora. Bye.

Jim: Morning, Arthur! Coffee, please.

Arthur: Coming up. Are you soiling my barstool?

Jim: You want to make things, you got to get your hands dirty.

Arthur: And what have you been making?

Jim: Improvements.

Computer: Grand concourse.
