Understanding Instructions

Unit 47; Part A

idea.jpgImportant for listening!
When listening to instructions, listen for the signals right, now and OK, which tell you that you are moving on to the next step. In the conversation below, В is giving A instructions on how to do something on a computer. В uses the words right, now and OK to signal that she is starting a new step in the instructions. Listen and notice that these words (in black below) are said in an emphatic voice.

The words right, now and OK are used in other contexts, apart from as a signal to the next step. In these other contexts, they are often not pronounced so strongly. Listen and compare the difference.

 
           Close the box ... that's right. Right, now you can close the whole program.
           I think we're on line now. Now, type the address in the box at the top.
           Now look at the whole page and see if it looks OK. OK. now you can print!
