Curso de Ingles Video 122 reading practice SUMMER CAMP



                            MY CAMPING TRIP

  When I was ten years old I lived in Salinas California.
 I went to Sherwood Elementary School.
 At the end of fourth grade, the teachers organized a camping trip
 to the redwood forest. I was very excited and wanted so much to go
 to the two week trip, that I pestered my mom for permission. I did get
 permission but I had to come up with the eighty dollar fee on my own.

  I worked two full weeks picking strawberries to make enough money. I ate 
 more strawberries in those two weeks than I have in my entire lifetime.

   The day before the trip, I packed everything that was on the camping gear
 list. The departure date came and I was off to summer camp. I was so excited.
 We arrived at the camp three hours later. I was awed at the size of the
 trees.

   I saw things I had never seen before, banana slugs, giant redwood trees,
  crayfish at a nearby stream, I even saw a real live bear.
   We swam in the pool. We went hiking in the woods. We made bonfires
 and sang at night. I had so much fun! It was my best vacation ever!

Curso de Ingles Video 120 MAY CAN FOR PERMISSION



can. (3) permission: In informal circumstances, since the second half of the 19c., can has often been used in contexts of permission where may had earlier been obligatory: Can I speak with the Count? – Tennyson… But in any context where politeness or formality are overriding considerations, may is the better word. May I come and stay with you? —Fowler's Modern English Usage (10-10)
345. 1. permission: can / could more common Can and could are more common thanmay and might, which are used in a formal style. Compare: Can I look at your paper. Excuse me, may I look at your newspaper for a moment?  There is an old belief that may/might are more 'correct' than can/could in this case, but this does not reflect normal usage.—Swan(345.1)
can, may 1. The use of can in a direct question to request permission is basically an oral use.  (Several examples are given for speech.)
Conclusion: The uses of can which request permission are seldom found in edited prose.  In general, this use of can belongs in speech, reported or fictional.  In negative statements,cannot and can't are much more frequently used than may not and mayn't; use in negative contexts is seldom notice or criticized. —Merriam-Webster's Dictionary of English Usage(218)
9-2 POLITE REQUESTS WITH "I" AS THE SUBJECT May and could I are used to request permission. They are equally polite. Can I is used informally to request permission, especially if the speaker is talking to someone s/he knows fairly well.  Can I is usually considered a little less polite than may I or could I. —Azar (152)
