OCFB <Anecdote> There is a story by Somerset Maugham about a young man. He visits a small town and wants to by some cigarettes. He walks nearly a mile (about 1.5 km) before he finds a shop, so he goes back to the place where he started from and says, "I'll open a tobacconist here." He does and it is a great success. For the next 20 years, the man walked the street of England looking for cigarettes. When he had to walk too far, he opened another shop. He was a millionaire by the time he was 35. <script> T: here is a short story by English novelist, Somerset Maugham. The story is about a young man. Read the text and write the answers of these questions.

What do you think?( if Ss can't answer, give some choices). The form? Where stress comes? and intonation is going up or down? Where is the connected speech? These are the same meaning but there is one difference. At the restaurant, if you are a waiter, you can say "How about coffee?" to the customer but can you say "Why don't we coffee?". but if you are with your friend at a cafe, you can suggest your friend "How about coffee?" and "Why don't we coffee?" Speakers always do things together when you say "why....?" but it depends on the situation in the case of "how about". Which is more polite? Which you can use for customers? "How about" is more polite.
