Male: Not at all. I have to find my textbook first.

Female: Oh, have you lost it?

Male: No, I think it’s somewhere in the room.

Female: You have to look for it properly. This is only some important words, but I made a list. Here, this. Shall I send it by e-mail?

Male: an: Yeah … Thank you … but …the printer is broken now. I have to fix it …. Can you give me this?

Female: What? I can’t.  Because I will study when on the way back home by train.

Male: Well…let me copy it. I will borrow it for a moment.

Female: Oh, No problem.

Question: From now on, what will a male student do?

  1. Look for textbooks
  2. Study on the train
  3. Send the printer for repair
  4. Copy the list of words

Instruction to practice:

Type of lesson:  Order of action.

In order to understand and make this type of lesson effectively, you can apply the following steps:

1. Catch the topic and the question:

First of all, you need to understand what the situation, the story there is?


At the university, male students and female students are talking to each other.

=> Subject: It can relate to learning.

The question is :


From now on, what will a male student do?

=> With this type of lesson, you need to focus on noting the action of the male student and the order of each action.

2. Note the main ideas:

Based on the topic and the question, you need to catch the key words about male’s actions

教科書、探さないと  :  have to find book

これ、くれない? : give me this ?

コピーさせて : let me copy

ちょっと借りるよ : borrow it for a moment.

3. Choosing the answer:

Answer:  4. 単語のリストをコピーする

Basing on the key words we have, we proceed with the analysis as follows:

First, we immediately eliminate the answer No. 2 because it is the action of the female.

The remaining 3 answers all refer to your 3 male”s actions. We need to pay attention to the order of actions: look for textbook ( 教科書、探さないと )  and repair printer ( 直してもらわないといけないんだけど ) all mentioned without specific clarifications about when to do.

Borrowing copy of the vocabulary list (コピーさせて。ちょっと借りるよ)is  placed in the situation that the female friend cannot give this list ( これはだめ) because she needs to study on the train ( 帰りの電車の中でも勉強するんだから). Therefore it has a higher priority than the other two actions=> Answer 4. 単語のリストをコピーする
