Big Meal Scene 2


Stephen works hard to make sure everything is perfect for Ashlie's birthday meal.

Do the Preparation task first. Then watch the video. Next go to Task and do the activity. If you need help, you can read the Transcript at any time.


Before you watch

Think about the following questions:

  • Do you like surprises?
  • What is the best surprise you have ever had?
  • Have you ever had a bad experience when cooking? What happened?

Now, watch Stephen and Ashlie to find out how the birthday meal turned out.

Yes. I always like surprises  especially good ones. My best surprise ever when my daughters brought me a mother day present for the first time . I like cooking very much and feel good when my family love it but  one day by mistake I put the pizza under the grill not in the oven and it burned . It was one of my bad surprises.

what is the meaning of" nothing's too good for my sister" thank you very much.

what it means "it's the thought that counts".When we say this?
