russia-flag Для чего эта статья и что нужно здесь делать?

По своему опыту могу сказать, что когда в освоении английского приходишь на всё готовенькое, то интеллектуально расслабляешься и не особо вникаешь в детали и тонкости языка.

А вот когда, мы “пропускаем язык через себя”…

  1. внимательное чтение книг, просмотр фильмов, т.д… не знаем, что то или то означает, почему так написано, вообще не догоняем, что происходит, значит отмечаем находку
  2. анализ “любопытных” предложений, конструкций, выражений (грамматика и прагматика наши лучшие друзья)
  3. прогонка проработанного материала через правое полушарие
  4. задействование “освоенных” предложений, конструкций, выражений на письме, в устной речи (идеально, с носителями языка)
    …то результаты будут совершенно иными, нежели чем “со всем готовеньким”.

А именно, выработка силы воли, языковой интуиции, внимательности, любопытства и реальное улучшение навыка английского языка.

Ниже представлены предложения, которые заинтриговали меня при прочтении книги / прочтении рассказа / прочтении комикса / просмотре фильма / просмотре игрофильма. То есть, я сделал первый пункт из четырех выше и поделился результатами с Вами. За Вами остаются остальные три.

21:56 – Well, I don’t know anything about you.

What’s that supposed to mean?

25:16 – But do me a favor.

What is it?

Call me Snake.

28:56 – If you just stand up and run around like an idiot, you’re bound to be spotted.

31:25 – This place is a dump.

And that is?

“Sorry for being so late.”

33:25 – He said to tell you “sorry for being so late.”

Did he now.

33:50 – Their orders were to prevent Colonel Volgin from capturing me. Even if it meant killing me in the process| or so it would seem.

36:06 – Volgin will come. I’m sure of it. You must get me out of here before then.

Leave it to me.

36:39 – Having second thoughts?

No. I have no love for this place. Let’s go.

37:05 – Now hurry up and get Sokolov to the recovery point! We’ll rendezvous with you there.

37:10 – What about the sentries?

No one spotted me.

I see.

37:15 – We lost contact with The Boss some time ago.

39:34 – A soldier? That’s Major Ocelot to you. And don’t you forget it!

41:00 – I can’t say it’s good to kill a comrade…

43:37 – But testing a technique you’ve only heard about in the middle of battle wasn’t very smart. You were asking to have your gun jam on you.

44:14 – But that was some fancy shooting… you’re pretty good.

44:55 – I’ve run into a few snags.

45:20 – I don’t like it. Something about the whole thing stinks.

I agree. You’d better hurry.

The best […] has to offer.

45:56 – And we’ve got some of the best backup we could ask for.

46:43 – It won’t be truly finished until we complete Phase 2.

51:30 – Boss? What is this?

51:45 – These will make a fine gift for me.

51:46 – This can’t be happening!

51:49 – Who is he? Another one of your disciples?

52:04 – He has not yet found an emotion to carry into battle.

What are you talking about!?

52:11 – Think you can pull the trigger?

54:15 – The new blood has been rejected…

54:32 – Are we done here?

55:42 – Snake, can you hear me?

Yeah, just barely

56:00 – Alright, let’s get you fixed up

56:04 – Just relax and it’ll be over before you know it.

56:12 – Stay with me! I’ve seen people in worse shape before.

1:01:37 – She’s a nice catch.

1:01:40 – Not so fast, my dear.

1:02:08 – She has spunk.

1:07:52 – Would you do me a favor and tell the suits about visiting hours?

1:08:00 – Must be part of the top brass’ inquiry.

More like an interrogation.

1:08:31 – Yeah? What kind of chance?

Don’t get too excited.

1:09:40 – Does any of this sound familiar to you?

1:11:03 – You mean… The Boss? The mother of your Special Forces?

Yes, that’s the one.

1:11:42 – The whole area is polluted!

I can only offer you my deepest condolences over this terrible tragedy.

1:12:20 – That’s correct. We were not involved in any way.

Then what was a U.S. military aircraft doing on our radar screen?

1:12:38 – You expect me to believe that this was all the work of a single soldier?

I don’t know what else to tell you.

1:12:50 – I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. Our government had nothing to do with it.

And I would like | dearly to believe you. However, I’m afraid that…

1:13:35 – The Boss should be close to Colonel Volgin. How about a little coaction?

1:13:50 – One week. You have only one week… and if it’s not too much to ask, do something about Volgin as well…

What is that supposed to mean?

1:14:15 – What if we can’t “prove our innocence”?

1:18:38 – What’s it for us if the Khrushchev regime is threatened by the colonel and his faction?

1:19:38 – Yes, that’s exactly right. At least, that was the plan

But?

But I got the name wrong.

1:19:54 – I watched the movie again, just to make sure.

1:20:00 – How should I call you?

You know, let’s just use Zero…

All right, then. Major zero it is.

1:20:23 – Oh, I almost forgot… Para-medic is with us again on this mission.

1:21:00 – You’ll be going up against some of the world’s most advanced weaponry when you infiltrate the research facility.

1:21:23 – Meet up with Adam first. He’s cleared the way for you to rescue Sokolov.

1:21:25 – How will I know | this Adam guy | when I see him?

1:23:45 – You don’t have a prayer of finishing your mission — you’re not even armed.

1:24:15 – There’s nothing for you here.

1:25:22 – What it’s going to be? Loyalty to your country, or loyalty to me?

1:25:52 – I don’t expect you to forgive me. But you can’t defeat me either. You know me too well.

1:26:06 – If you can’t put the past behind you, you won’t survive long.

1:26:45 – I was ambushed by The Boss.

You were what!?

1:26:47 – The drone has been shot to hell. It’s up in flames.

That’s not good. Enemy scouts are going to come looking for you.

1:26:54 – But what was The Boss doing here in the first place? There’s got to be a leak somewhere.

1:27:00 – The man The Boss is working with, Volgin, isn’t exactly | on speaking terms with Khrushchev.

1:27:06 – Snake, I know how you are feeling. It’s hard for me to believe that, too – that a legendary hero like The Boss would go over to the Russians, that she’d double-cross us like this… But that’s how it is, and if you don’t accept it, you’ll never be able to beat her.

1:27:24 – In terms of sheer technique, I’ll never be able to beat her. I know that all too well.

1:27:31 – We were together for 10 years. And now you tell me she’s my enemy?

Enough.

1:28:14 – Cut the engine. ( ) They’ll hear us.

1:29:14 – There… is your answer.

1:29:53 – The name’s EVA.

1:31:07 – It packs quite a punch. Nice to have when you’re on a bike.

1:31:50 – The feeding ramp is polished to a mirror sheen

1:32:14 – And not only that, nearly every part of this gun has been expertly crafted and customized.

1:32:27 – Where’d you get something like this?

1:34:00 – And just what are you doing there?

1:34:37 – You’ll never make it in your condition. It’s a jungle out there.

1:35:03 – I’ll keep you updated over the radio.

That’s it?

My orders are to provide you with information. Nothing more.

1:35:34 – Now be a good boy and lie down.

1:36:06 – Gonna get that? (звонок)

1:36:32 – When you’re tired or hurt, the best thing to do is just get some sleep. So do yourself a favor and take a nap. Doctor’s orders. OK?

1:38:32 – I’ll keep them busy.

1:38:38 – Don’t go dying on me now.

1:41:37 – I don’t think so!

1:41:37 – What did you say?

1:41:48 – It’s a nice gun, I’ll give you that.

1:42:15 – You don’t have what it takes to kill me.

We’ll see!

1:44:06 – Did you miss me?

1:44:12 – So you’re back with Volgin?

In a matter of speaking…

1:44:25 – The Boss and I get along pretty well. I guess we traitors have a lot in common.

1:44:55 – What was it that made you want to change sides?

You wouldn’t believe me if I told you.

Try me.

I saw the universe.

1:45:53 – I’ve been trained to make even the most severe falsehood sound like the honest truth. Weren’t you?

1:46:45 – Twice now you’ve made me taste bitter defeat.

1:47:02 – I hate to disappoint the Cobras, but you’re mine now.

1:48:21 – Draw!

1:48:56 – Not bad eh!?

1:50:21 – How did that one taste?

Major, that’s the way!

1:53:41 – So what you’re saying is that it’s going to take you a while because you don’t have a flashlight?

1:53:53 – I tell you, American soldiers these days rely too much on ready-made equipment.

Here we go again…

What was that?

Nothing.

1:55:19 – I’ll guide you to a world of anguish beyond your imagination

1:57:54 – Eat this!

2:00:15 – Snake, what in God’s name

2:00:25 – I don’t think “cool” is the right word.

2:00:35 – Aren’t you going to ask me what the hell was I thinking?

2:00:54 – Oh… well, you should see it sometime.

2:01:00 – It’s about this guy who gets hurt in a car accident and tries to heal his wounds by injecting with a crocodile serum…

2:05:32 – I’m not going anywhere.

Really now? | How many times must I tell you?

2:05:51 – Each time you resist, your lover suffer the consequences.

2:06:42 – Hold it right there, traitor.

2:06:58 – Let’s find out just how lucky you are.

2:10:20 – The End is saving what life he has left in him for battle.

2:10:33 – But he’ll wake up when the time is right.

2:12:30 – Major, EVA isn’t responding to the radio…

Right.

Right?

2:12:44 – Don’t assume something’s wrong just because you’re not getting a response.

2:17:40 – So, you’re the intruder everyone is talking about.

2:17:46 – Typical capitalist dog – no manners.

2:17:56 – You mean you’ve never heard of me? And you call yourself an agent.

2:18:11 – A man of some importance, if I do say so myself.

2:18:40 – It was awarded to me in recognition of my brilliant contributions to society.

2:18:49 – I have created countless weapons in the service of our great communist society.

2:19:22 – You crocked, aren’t you?

2:20:46 – But I won’t be used so easily. No, no crying myself to sleep.

2:20:50 – For you see, I’m going to send these documents to my friend in the United States.

2:20:57 – These bastards will live to regret this.

2:21:39 – That is the real revolution in weaponry! Don’t you agree!?

2:22:24 – In the confusion of the war, he somehow ended up with their treasure.

2:22:38 – We never need to worry about the military budget. The development costs at our facility are all paid out of the colonel’s deep pockets.

2:23:13 – While Sokolov is making the final preparations… , here I am | playing host to an enemy spy and drinking myself into a stupor.

2:23:38 – Hey, you’re not thinking of going to Groznyj Grad? Are you mad?

2:23:40 – It’s an impenetrable fortress!

I’m sure it is.

2:23:48 – You’ll be killed.

I’ll take my chances.

2:23:55 – Listen to me, you fool!

2:24:12 – I wanted to thank you for complimenting me on them.

2:25:39 – Unlike Sokolov, the though of defecting has never once crossed my mind.

2:26:21 – I will remain here and nurse my troubles for a little longer.

2:27:59 – Ah, but what fun would that be? Not a fitting death at all.

2:28:13 – I will give you fear such as you’ve never experienced before.

2:32:10 – He even gave me the key to the warehouse.

Why?

Because he was drunk, I guess.

You’ve got to be kidding me.

Hell if I know.

2:32:48 – There’s something else I’ve got to tell you.

Now what?

2:33:14 – Apparently, he doesn’t need a spotter.

You can’t be serious.

2:33:24 – Stay alert!

Yeah. I’d hate to have it be the end of for me.

2:34:24 – I beg of you, grant me the strength to take this final prey.

2:34:52 – You have my thanks.

2:36:34 – From what I’ve heard, The End has an almost supernatural knack for camouflaging himself.

2:36:40 – … so I should have the advantage in terms of stamina.

I wouldn’t be so sure if I were you.

2:38:31 – I don’t think so!

2:41:02 – We’re just getting started!

2:42:27 – …and now my journey comes to a close.

2:48:08 – What do you think?

You had to tell me that after I ate one.

2:51:56 – Well, that was quick.

2:52:01 – You look like you could use some rest.

2:52:36 – No, I’m the same way… scars all over.

2:55:58 – You really want to know? Well too bad.

2:53:12 – And it looks like someone might be coming to spoil the party.

2:53:24 – If we don’t get a move on, the security will be even tighter than it is now…

2:54:01 – I’ll bet if I kissed you, you’d taste like a wild beast.

2:54:47 – There’s just one problem.

Not again…

2:56:58 – Do you love her?

No, nothing like that.

2:57:03 – Does it have to be one or the other – love or hate?

2:58:04 – How do you feel about me?

I should be asking the same question.

2:59:10 – See you ‘round, Snake.

2:59:22 – There’s no way you could have gotten this far all by yourself.

3:01:36 – Comrade or not, he is of no use to us now.

3:01:42 – I do not approve of your methods.

I don’t need your approval. I’m in command here.

3:01:52 – Still feeling sore about that, are you?

What are you gonna do, report it to the authorities?

3:02:10 – It is kill or be killed.

3:02:25 – A single man can only accomplish so much.

3:03:20 – How can the legendary Cobras be beaten so easily… ?

He’s good

Fallen for him?

3:10:35 – Eat flames!

3:16:00 – What is that supposed to mean?

What indeed.

3:16:45 – Has anyone ever told you you’re a bit slow?

What are you talking about?

I’ll leave you to think about it.

3:20:00 – Snake, what’s up? Why are you naked?

3:20:09 – You don’t get any advantages whatsoever.

Sure there are.

Like what?

It feels good.

…Man, you do whatever you want.

3:20:26 – Is there a way to take my pants off?

Say WHAT!?

3:20:33 – Ah, hell no! This FOX unit is a nut fest!

3:26:03 – A weapon from hell

3:26:22 – And that’s not the end of it. He’s going to ship them to Eastern Europe, to Asia…

3:26:29 – Even worse, he intends to use the Shagohod as bait to foment armed uprisings among dictators…

3:26:40 – His funds are limitless. He could start mass production tomorrow if he wanted.

3:27:15 – If such a weapon is unleashed on the world, it will not be long before all nations are engulfed in conflict.

3:29:00 – Now I remember. Your family is in the custody of…

3:30:18 – In the end it doesn’t matter where I go…

3:30:59 – All I wanted to do was build space rockets… But it was not to be.

3:31:11 – The space race and the arms race are one and the same. Missiles, rockets… what’s the difference?

3:32:30 – Who are you? Don’t play dumb with me. If you think you can fool me, you are sorely mistaken.

3:32:44 – I came here looking for Tatyana, and what should I find… but a greasy freebooter!

3:33:29 – What is this fairy disguise? It’s gonna rub off on you.

3:34:00 – I see why they call you The Boss…

3:34:17 – I will take it from here.

3:34:26 – Are you going to kill him?

Of course. But first… I will make him pay for hurting Ivan!

3:36:54 – How can you do this to him?

3:37:41 – I hope you’ll prove more entertaining than he was.

3:37:56 – You’ve certainly seen your share of battles.

3:38:38 – You are a tough one. But even you must have your limits.

3:39:58 – Yes yes. Let yourself go!

3:41:57 – It pains me to do this, Boss, but under the circumstances… I’m afraid I must ask you to show me some proof…

3:42:36 – You made him a soldier …and now you will unmake him. Yes… it will make for a touching display.

3:42:53 – Ruin him, just as he did the Cobras!

3:44:19 – Taken a fancy to her, eh, Ocelot?

3:45:13 – There. Satisfied now?

3:45:51 – Watching this made me realize something… it’s really not that bad.

3:49:07 – Hey, you’re not such a bad guy after all.

You mean it?

Yeah.

3:49:36 – What’s your kid’s name?

Johnny.

Johnny… nice ring to it.

3:50:24 – Our two countries used to be such friends.

Yeah, I hear ya.

3:50:55 – It’s the least I can do…

3:51:08 – Don’t suppose you could let me out of here?

3:51:15 – Hey, don’t you go | getting any funny ideas.

3:54:28 – Snake…

Let me guess – there’s a problem.

Yeah.

What is it this time?

3:54:34 – The colonel found out you escaped.

He did, huh. Figured as much.

3:55:12 – You should be able to get out by heading straight north. Book it Snake! If they find you, you’re dead!

3:57:35 – Don’t die on me yet…

3:59:11 – Like you, I, too, am filled with sadness.

3:59:15 – This world is one of sadness…

4:07:06 – Snake, are you alright? That was a close call.

4:07:12 – You were halfway drowned at the bottom of the river. Almost crossed over to the other side

4:08:50 – It looks like it’s not time for me to die yet.

I sure hope not. Otherwise the whole mission is shot.

4:09:06 – I took a pretty freaky detour.

What are you talking about?

Nothing, forget it. Let’s just say I’m back.

4:09:19 – I jumped into the river.

From all the way up there? You’re out of control.

4:09:54 – See you there!

4:12:00 – Don’t like snakes?

Not for dinner.

4:12:22 – Tell me something. How does it feel to spy on your own country?

I can’t say it feels good. But it’s my job.

4:13:06 – Raw fish? Just the place for my survival techniques.

4:14:22 – It’s not like I can’t see. I’ve got one good eye, and can still fire a gun.

4:15:12 – You’re pretty good at that.

Yeah, everybody tells me that.

4:16:09 – With just this much, you could blow up the Shagohod and the lab along with it.

Is that right?

4:17:06 – It should be no sweat for you.

4:18:58 – Don’t worry, the colonel still trusts me… And I have my ways.

4:19:16 – You seem like you were born on one of those.

If I didn’t ride every day, I couldn’t go on living.

4:21:21 – I see you’ve found some Russian glowcaps.

4:22:26 – So you’re saying they’ll get recharged?

Believe what you want.

4:23:10 – Snake, can you excuse me for a second?

4:23:28 – Why not? You’ve seen how gullible he is.

I guess there’s no harm done.

4:23:52 – What the… My food’s gone! Major!! What the hell is going on here!?

Don’t ask me. Ask EVA.

4:24:18 – You didn’t

It wasn’t me!

4:24:26 – All those snakes and crocodiles and suspicious-looking mushrooms… I wouldn’t eat that stuff even if you paid me!

4:24:36 – I was hungry, OK!? Give me a break! It’s just a little packet of noodles…

It wasn’t just the noodles. All those animals I worked so hard to capture…

4:24:51 – He said he wanted to eat the same things you did.

Why would he do that?

You haven’t figured it out?

No.

You are dense.

4:25:20 – I’m fine.

I disagree.

4:26:00 – He was sad… no, more than that. He said I was part of his sorrow…

4:26:14 – What in the hell is wrong with Snake?

Beats me… Maybe he got a nasty bump on the head.

4:26:27 – I mean, he’s always been a little bit… different… I thought maybe…

Good point… I was just thinking that myself.

4:26:33 – What is it, Snake?

I can hear you!

4:29:14 – Just my imagination…

4:29:20 – This is my lucky day!

4:30:57 – EVA’s got the data on the Shagohod. Do you think that’s safe?

I wouldn’t exactly say it’s safe.

4:31:40 – Like EVA was saying, if you’re looking to blow the whole place sky high, the best way is to…

4:32:10 – And be careful. Liquid fuel has a nasty habit of going off at the slightest shock. So don’t go using any heavy firepower near the tanks unless you’re aiming to get yourself barbecued.

I’ll keep that in mind.

4:35:52 – Gotcha this time!

4:38:32 – To think that lovely Tatyana was a spy…

4:38:58 – It almost pains me to have to kill her.

4:40:00 – Sokolov wasn’t man enough to have a lover like that.

4:40:08 – Just like the KGB to send something so beautiful, yet so deadly.

4:40:51 – And they amassed an enormous sum of money to fund these projects. Enough to fight the war five times over

4:43:00 – The Boss was conniving enough to see things my way.

4:43:55 – Boss, take this someplace safe.

4:45:05 – Fight like a warrior, Volgin.

But of course.

4:46:12 – You will stand there and watch! Got it?

4:47:22 – This is a once-in-a-lifetime battle. Let’s make it a good one!

4:49:14 – He is dead already!?

4:49:40 – Let’s see you dodge this one!

4:50:06 – Do you hear me! I said shoot him!!

4:50:12 – Sorry Colonel, I’m afraid I can’t do that.

What do you mean, you can’t?

4:50:43 – Are you questioning my authority?

4:55:33 – Step on it!

4:58:15 – Not good!

5:00:54 – I can’t shake him!

5:03:50 – Keep it up!

5:14:45 – For luck!

5:15:24 – This can’t be!!

5:16:24 – Didn’t feel a thing!

5:20:55 – Who’s afraid of a little thunder?

5:21:51 – Fried by a bolt of lightning… a fitting end.

5:26:29 – Niiice!

5:28:41 – What’d you think of that? Not bad, huh?

5:31:03 – I can’t believe this. I never thought I’d see you act this weak.

5:32:55 – Do you have supplies with you?

I’m running kind of short.

5:33:06 – Oh, and Snake… I’m pretty sure you know this already, but…

5:33:15 – Do you get my meaning, Snake?

5:35:23 – I healed her up. She can manage.

5:38:32 – Isn’t it beautiful? It’s almost tragic…

5:39:26 – The foibles of politics and the march of time can turn friends into enemies just as easily as the wind changes.

5:44:02 – And the irony of it is,

5:45:00 – Our weak-kneed President held back their air support.

6:02:04 – It doesn’t feel right to shoot an unarmed man… but I’ll get over it.

6:02:40 – What do you say to one last showdown?

6:07:00 – We made it.

Yeah, we sure did…

6:07:46 – We’ve come too far to let them stop us now.

6:09:22 – Maybe he didn’t want things to get messier than they already are. Or maybe he just wanted us to owe him one.

6:15:49 – We couldn’t let the Russians and the Americans take it all for themselves.

6:17:24 – Why did she open her heart to me like that?

6:19:17 – She carried out her mission knowing full well what was going to happen.

6:22:32 – The public couldn’t be allowed to find out about it… not ever.

6:23:13 – A lesser woman would have been crushed by such a burden…

6:23:57 – And, like a true soldier, she saw it (the mission) through to the end.


Wow, it seems you’ve made it to the end of this new-vocabulary-grammar-intensive article… But did you actually work through all the findings?  No shirking? Sweet! That’s what I call being persistent at mastering English!

 

russia-flag Вы дочитали и проработали статью до конца? Так держать!

Если Вы дочитали до конца эту статью, то я уверен, что Вы узнали много нового про английский язык (при условии, что Вы действительно проработали предложения выше).

Проработать так много материала это совсем не шутки, а вполне серьёзный подход к делу.

Теперь же дело за малым: эффективно всё перенести в речевой актив и начать всласть применять новые знания на практике (пункт 3 и 4, соответсвенно).

Спасибо за то, что уделили время.

Удачи в Вашем языковом путешествии!

 

I am crazy enough to do the whole nine-yards over again. Please bring me to the beginning of the sentences. Yeah!

Did you know that you are more than encouraged to go ahead and tell me in the comments section below how the whole process went?

With that, thanks for taking your time accepting the challenge, reading and working through the article.

Until next time!
