  1. Watch the video and complete the following assignments:

    Assignment 1: Watch the second section of the movie, mark the intonation in the following statements and memorize them with exactly the same intonation as on the DVD:
    1. Emma, I wondered where you were. But now I see you’ve been hard at work making Mr. Elton comfortable.
    2. I’ve been remiss in doing the one thing that shall bring him the greatest enjoyment.
    3. He lives in London now, a young man, and has never been here.
    4. It’s not merely the feeling of it. The penmanship is so confident.
    5. Isn’t Miss Smith delightful?
    6. I could never presume to guide her as you did me.
    7. And what kind of people are your parents?
    8. How lucky for Mrs. Martin to have such an agreeable husband!
    9. Tell me more about Mr. Martin. Is he a man of information?

    13. Miss Woodhouse, may I present Mr. Martin?
    14. Did he take your advice and get the book you asked him to read?
    15. Can you not tell me what it was?
