Wallace: Oh yes. 

Wallace:  Haha.  Oh, there you are.  I think these matches are a bit damp.  Ha, its one of those joke candles lad.  Oy, where are you going with that cake!  Gromit, it’s a bomb!  The cakes a bomb!  Wait a minute.  You don’t think Piella could be,,

Listening Exercise

This is a stop motion animated movie that my daughter loves. The movie is from England so the characters speak with a British accent. There are two scenes in this clip. Try to understand what is going on in the story. The characters are;

Wallace : The man in the green vest. Gromit: The dog with the brown ears. Fluffles: The white, fluffy dog. Piella: The blonde woman in the pink dress.

Please answer the following questions.

  1. After watching these two scenes, what do you think the story is about?
  2. Who is the villain in this movie?
  3. Does Gromit(the dog with brown ears) trust Piella?
  4. When Wallace is trying to light the candle on the cake he says, “I think these matches are a bit __________”.
  5. What is Piella trying to do?
  6. In the last scene Piella says, “Well done Wallace, sharp as a brick”. Is she complimenting Wallace or insulting him?
  7. Piella also says, “Now do exactly as I say or Fluffles gets snuffled”. What does this mean? What does snuffled mean?

Springtime

I never liked spring when I lived in America. It was always cold, windy, and muddy(どろどろ). However, spring in Japan is amazing. The weather is a little chilly but it is still hospitable( 親切な). The cherry blossoms are the icing on the cake(idiom).  My favorite thing about cherry blossoms is when the petals(花びら) fall off of the flowers and rain down.
