Урок3. Проверка слуха или English Listening. Strait George «I Cross My Heart»

Лучший способ для меня практиковать слушание English — песни на радио волне. В Сан-Франциско заБэйной Эрии есть куча радиостанций моего любимого жанра Country. Самые «надоевшие» ;) — вот эти внизу. Я их слушаю в машине на долгой дороге домой, Вы слушаете он-лайн (Listen Live) .

95.7 The Wolf Country… for the Bay Area

93.5 KRTY San Jose Hot Country

И еще одна отличная новостно-дискуссионная тематика на 88.5 KQED — Public Media for Northern California (88.5 San Francisco,89.3 Sacramento). Музыка — редкость, зато познавательно и интересно, а главное — очень улучшает English listening and auto-speaking skill, если иногда хотя бы пытаться успевать повторять вслух сказанное в эфире — то самое auto-speaking.

Рекомендую.

А теперь проверяем слух под хорошую мелодию Стрэйта Джоржа.

Artist: Strait George
Song: I Cross My Heart
Album: Pure Country

Our _____ is unconditional, we knew it from the start.
I see it in your _____ , you can feel it from my _____.
From here on after let’s stay the way we are right now,

That a lifetime will allow.

I cross my _____ and promise to
Give all I’ve got to give to make all your _____ come true.
In all the world you’ll never find a _____ as true as mine.

You will _____ be the miracle that makes my life complete,
And as _____ as there’s a breath in me, I’ll make yours just as sweet.
As we look _____ the future, it’s as far as we _____ see,
So let’s make each tomorrow be the best that it can be.

I cross my heart and _____ to
Give all I’ve got to give to make all your dreams come true.
In all the world you’ll never find a _____ as true as mine.

And if along the way we find a _____ it starts to storm,
You’ve got the promise of my _____ to keep you warm.
In all the world you’ll never find a _____ as true as mine,
A L___ as true as mine.

Для облегчения разгадывания пропущенных слов (жирно выделены ;)) внизу мой вольный непрофессиональный перевод припева +:

Я, положа руку на сердце, обещаю
Давать все, что есть у меня для воплощения всех твоих мечтаний
.
Во всем мире ты никогда не найдешь такой истинной
как моя.

Ты всегда будешь чудом, заполняющим мою жизнь,
И
насколько долго мне дано будет дышать, я буду делать твою жизнь сладкой сказкой.
Насколько только мы сможем заглянуть в будущее,
Давай сделаем каждое наше Завтра настолько Лучшим насколько Оно только Может Быть.

Devoted to Saint Patrick’s Day. Thanks to Teacher Martin.

Today is Saint Patrick’s Day. It is Green Holiday of Irish people.

Long ago St. Patrick brings Christianity to the Celtic Ireland. He was the most commonly recognized patron saint of Ireland. The holiday began as a purely Catholic holiday and became an official feast day in the early 1600s.

Shamrock is the symbol of that Green Day. That symbolism helped St. Patrick to explain the Holy Trinity concept to pre-Christian Irish people.

Violin is the traditional Irish music instrument is used to play St. Patrick’s Day Songs

In tradition on that day Irishmen relax and drop some of the self-limitation and do many crazy things like drinking a lot of bear, loudly singing of songs and dancing. They paint their faces and clothes in green color. And nobody should wear orange color clothes on that day,  it would be considered as disrespect. (I was in my favorite orange t-shirt today, so I am so sorry for that).

Saint Patrick's Day

Two years ago when I was in Chicago, I saw that the water in Chicago River becomes green on St.Patrick’s Day;)

My teacher Martin Doerner’s mother’s family is from Ireland and he is proud of his Celtic roots. By his own experience he learned the unfair attitude to Irish people in the U.S. that used to be there some time ago. The song «No Irish Need Apply» is devoted to that topic and still reflects life loving and proud position of Irishmen. Please listen in the window below and watch the lyrics.

My Dear Friend Martin,

You are really the best English teacher I’ve ever met. I indeed very much appreciate your efforts which you do to teach people for getting them the Knowledge, not only in English language itself but also in the High Culture of Relationship, your efforts for the people coming from different countries and cultures and speaking many different languages.

I have a small experience in leading the lessons (I was an instructor of yoga classes in Russia).  I surely understand that my lessons is not the same as yours. Although I clearly feel how it is difficult to plan, prepare and perform every lesson. I again very appreciate your efforts in preparation of such useful, interesting and amazing classes.

You are truly great Teacher because as I see you are constantly developing and teaching yourself ; that is what helps you to perform magic.

Sorry in advance for my curved English grammar. I still do my best to express myself in English in beautiful way.

Yours sincerely,

Mikhail.

NO IRISH NEED APPLY

I'm a decent boy just landed
From the town of Ballyfad;
I want a situation, yes,
And want it very bad.
I have seen employment advertised,
"It's just the thing," says I,
"But the dirty spalpeen ended with
'No Irish Need Apply.' "

"Whoa," says I, "that's an insult,
But to get the place I'll try,"
So I went to see the blackguard
With his "No Irish Need Apply."

Some do count it a misfortune
To be christened Pat or Dan,
But to me it is an honor
To be born an Irishman.

I started out to find the house,
I got it mighty soon;
There I found the old chap seated,
He was reading the Tribune.
I told him what I came for,
When he in a rage did fly,
"No!" he says, "You are a Paddy,
And no Irish need apply."

Then I gets my dander rising
And I'd like to black his eye
To tell an Irish gentleman
"No Irish Need Apply."

Some do count it a misfortune
To be christened Pat or Dan,
But to me it is an honor
To be born an Irishman.

I couldn't stand it longer
So a hold of him I took,
And gave him such a welting
As he'd get at Donnybrook.
He hollered, "Milia murther,"
And to get away did try,
And swore he'd never write again
"No Irish Need Apply."

Well he made a big apology,
I told him then goodbye,
Saying, "When next you want a beating,
Write `No Irish Need Apply.' "

Some do count it a misfortune
To be christened Pat or Dan,
But to me it is an honor
To be born an Irishman.

Спеши домой…

Как обычно, все песни приходят по «дороге домой«… Песня по душе и по любви, когда просто так любишь…и спешишь Домой, Где Тебя Ждут. Наверное,  всем нам пора поспешить Домой.


«Hurry Home» is the title of a song written by Zane Williams, and first recorded by him on a 2005 album of the same name. Country music singer Jason Michael Carrolllater recorded it on his 2009 album Growing Up Is Getting Old (<Растем — стареем, мудреем> ?), releasing it as that album’s second single in June 2009. The song is his fifth Top 40 hit on the U.S. BillboardHot Country Songs chart.

Исполнитель Jason Michael Carroll.

Hurry Home lyrics

Songwriters: Williams, Zane;
He’s been sitting by the phone since she left
But it’s time for work and he just can’t be late
So he grabs his old guitar and he plays a couple bars on the machine
And then he softly sings
It doesn’t matter what you’ve done I still love you
It doesn’t matter where you’ve been you can still come home
And honey if it’s you we’ve got a lot of making up to do
And I can’t hug you on the phone, so hurry home
Well, the message light was blinking when he got back
It was an old friend calling ’cause he just heard the news
He said man, I hope you find her
If I see her I’ll remind her that her dad is worried and want her to know
It doesn’t matter what you’ve done I still love you
It doesn’t matter where you’ve been you can still come home
And honey if it’s you we’ve got a lot of making up to do
And I can’t hug you on the phone so hurry home
Well, the days dragged by without a word from her
And it looked like she might not be coming back
People said man, don’t you think it’s time to take that old message off
He said no, you never know when she might call
She was just outside a bar in New York City
Her so-called friends had left her all alone
She was scared he wouldn’t want her
But she dialed up that old number and let it ring
And then she heard him sing
It doesn’t matter what you’ve done I still love you
It doesn’t matter where you’ve been you can still come home
And honey if it’s you we’ve got a lot of making up to do
And I can’t hug you on the phone so hurry home
He walked in just in time to hear her say
Dad, I’m on my way

I want to go home

Музыка в настроение – слышал по радио в машине по дороге домой. Вибрирует в душе:

…Another aeroplane,      // Снова самолет
Another sunny place,     //  Другое солнечное место
I’m lucky, I know,     //  Я счастлив, я знаю
But I want to go home,  // Но я хочу домой
I’ve got to go home…    // Мне пора домой

Westlife – Home

Artist: Westlife

Song : Home
Album :

Lyrics:

Another sunny day,
Has come and gone away,
In Paris and Rome,
I want to go home,
Mmmmmm
Maybe surrounded by,
A million people I,
Still feel all alone,
I just want to go home,
Oh I miss you, You know,
And i’ve been keeping all the letters,
That I wrote to you,
Each one a line or to,
I’m fine baby how are you,
Well I would send them but,
I know it’s that it’s just not enough,
The words were cold and flat,
And you deserve more, Than that,

Another aeroplane,
Another sunny place,
I’m lucky, I know,
But I want to go home,
I’ve got to go home,

Let me go home
Im just to far,
From where you are,
I’ve got to come home,
Let me come home,
I’ve had my run,
Baby i’m down,
I want to come home,

And I feel just like,
I’m living,
Someone elses life,
It’s like i just stepped outside,
When everything was going right,
And I no just why you could not come along with me,
‘Cause this was not your dream,
But you always believed in me,

Another winter day,
Has come and gone away,
In either Paris and Rome,
And I Want To Go Home,
I miss you, You know,
Let me go home,
I’ve had my run,
Baby i’m down,
I want to go home,
Let me go home,
It’ll all be alright,
I’ll be home tonight,
I’m coming back home.
