In this scene a guy is chasing a girl in a car and he calls her and he says: Would you mind slowing down?
That’s a structure you can use to request something.
Would you mind lending me this book? Would you mind opening the window? Would you mind closing the door, please? Thank you.
Remember that would you mind is followed by –ing. But would love like hate prefer is usually followed by to + infinitive.
Would you like to come over for dinner tonight? Would you prefer to have the meeting now or after lunch?
Kia Ora in Stick News today NASA says they haven’t heard from their spaceship on Mars since the second of November and they now presume it’s dead.
Phoenix was a robotic spacecraft on a mission to search for environments suitable for life on Mars. Back in May NASA celebrated when Phoenix found some ice. Yesterday, they announced Phoenix was missing, presumed dead. They said their last communication with the spacecraft was eight days earlier. Phoenix was a solar powered spacecraft. CNN reported the Phoenix team knew the spacecraft wouldn’t survive the winter – but sent it anyway.
And that was Stick News for Tuesday the 11th of November. Kia Ora.
