LESSON 27 DIALOGUE 

 

-Garage Sale-

 

 

Lesson 27 – Garage Sale

David: Hi Jeff, Karen and I are having a garage sale on Saturday. We have accumulated so much stuff. Can you help us sort it out?

Jeff: Saturday, hmm. I think so. Polly wants me to drive her to Ikea at some point on Saturday. What time do you need me?

David: Well, if you have things to do, don’t worry about it.

Jeff: Oh no, I´m sure it’ll be fine. She only wants to buy some shelves for the office. It shouldn’t take long.

David: I have another idea. Why don’t you and Polly come over for drinks on Friday night? We can tackle the garage over a few beers.

Jeff: I like that idea. Okay! Polly has nearly finished the office and I want to get rid of all the old furniture and things. Would it be okay to bring a few items for the garage sale?

David: Of course it will be okay. There are a few people having a garage sale on this street so we’re expecting a good crowd. What sort of furniture is it?

Jeff: There’s a bedside cabinet, some lamps, a futon, an old desk and chair. Things like that.

David: I think Mr Samson at number 12 was looking for a desk and chair. He wants to build a little office for himself but he didn’t want to spend lots of money.

Jeff: Well the desk and chair are old but they are still in good condition. If he wants them he can have them for nothing.

David: Really! That’s very nice of you Jeff!

Jeff: Aw, they are just taking up space. To be honest I was going to take them to the tip but if someone wants them, that is better!

GRAMMAR PRACTICE: « TO WANT »

 

Previously, we studied verbs used with

to + infinitive

One of them is: to want

I want to learn English. 

 

Now take a look in this example:

 

I want you to learn English.

 

Subject of to want + Verb to want + 2nd subject + to + 2nd verb

I Want You To Learn English
Subject Verb 2nd subject To 2nd verb  

 

 

The subject of the second verb it can be change the pronouns of the subject:

 

I Me
You You
He Him
She Her
It It
We Us
You You
They Them

 

 

Examples:

I want him to learn English.

I want us to learn English.

The pronouns also are used like pronouns of passive and active form:

Examples:

Can you help us?

Give me 5 dollars.

Tell them the truth.

This structure is also used with other verbs:

To advise

To ask

To disuade 

To expect  

To persuade  

To teach 

To tell  

 

Examples:

Mum advised me to study hard.

She asked me to be punctual.

Karen persuaded me to go back home.

She expects me to be polite.

We persuaded him to say “no”.

We didn’t tell her to go.

 

Negative form

If you want to build the negative form it’s necessary only put not before to.

 

Examples:

Mum advised me not to study hard.

She asked me not to be punctual.

Karen persuaded me not to go back home.

She expects me not to be polite.

We persuaded him not to say “no”.

We didn’t tell her not to go.

 

Make/Let

If we use make and let we delete to.

 

Make + Infinitive without to

Let + Infinitive without to

 

Examples:

She makes me laugh

My boss doesn’t let me surf the net.
