Lesson 24: I Feel Super!



ANNA: Hi! I see you like superhero culture. Me too.


ANNA: In fact, tonight Im going to the big superhero convention. Are you going?


YOUNG MAN: Um, I dont know.


ANNA: Well, you'd better decide soon. Last year, it sold out.


ANNA: So, since were talking about superheroes: would you rather become a superhero by accident, like Spiderman, or be born a superhero, like Wonder Woman?


ANNA: Take your time. Its a big question. I thought about it for days


YOUNG MAN: Okay. If I had to choose, Id rather be born a superhero.


ANNA: Id rather become a superhero by an unexpected accident!


YOUNG MAN: Arent all accidents unexpected?


ANNA: Well, yeah.


YOUNG MAN: What was that!? Are you okay?


ANNA: I'm better than okay. I feel super!


PROF. BOT: Oh No! Anna was just hit by lightning. She had better get help.


PROF. BOT: We use had better to give advice. It is very informal and stronger than should and ought to. For example, Anna says: You'd better decide soon. Last year, it sold out.


PROF. BOT: When we use had better, we usually shorten the word had for personal pronouns.


PROF. BOT: We use would rather to say what we or someone else prefers to do or have. For example, the boy says: Okay. If I had to choose, Id rather be born a superhero.


PROF. BOT: With would rather, we also shorten the word would when used with personal pronouns. Keep watching and listen for had better and would rather.


YOUNG MAN: Youd better see a doctor.


ANNA: Ive never felt better!


YOUNG MAN: You were just struck by lightning!! And what happened to your hair and your clothes?


ANNA: I don't know. Wait, I do know. This is my super suit! And this is my origin story.


YOUNG MAN: What are you talking about?


ANNA: An origin story tells the beginning of a superhero. You should know that.


YOUNG MAN: You're not making any sense, lady.


ANNA: I would rather be called Lightning Bolt Lady! Itll sound great in a theme song: Lightning Bolt Lady!


ANNA: Now, I need to find my superpowers --


YOUNG MAN: Um, I really think --


ANNA: Wait. Dont tell me. Ill read your mind. You are thinking youd like to be my super helper.


YOUNG MAN: I was not thinking that.


ANNA: ... that youd like to live in a treehouse.


YOUNG MAN: No.


ANNA: that you should eat more vegetables.


YOUNG MAN: Please, stop talking. You really should get some help.


ANNA: Mind reading is not my superpower. Maybe I can become invisible. I am invisible!


ANNA: You cant see me. Who am I? Im not here. You cant see me.


YOUNG MAN: I can see you and so can everybody else.


ANNA: No power of invisibility. Maybe I can create a force field. I feel it working. Nothing can hurt


(Someone throws a piece of paper and it hits her head.)


ANNA: Ow, that wasnt very nice. I see I have a lot of work to do. Well, goodbye, non-super person!


YOUNG MAN: Wait. Id better go with you. You might get worseif thats even possible.


ANNA: That's very nice of you, ordinary human. But Id rather go by myself. This is a quest.


YOUNG MAN: Every time you speak, I get more confused.


ANNA: A quest is a part of all superhero stories. You really need to work on your superhero studies. Now, stand back. Ive never flown before.


YOUNG MAN: And youre not flying now.


ANNA: Flying is also not my superpower. Thats too bad. It's going to be expensive to Uber everywhere. You know, I'd rather walk. Its a nice day. Goodbye, non-super person.


YOUNG MAN: I am not talking to strangers again.


ANNOUNCER: Will Lightning Bolt Lady find her superpowers ever? Ouch! Did that brick wall hurt? Will the young man ever talk to a stranger again?


ANNOUNCER: Find out on the next episode of Lets Learn English
