Hi, thank you for watching this One Word English lesson. In this lesson you are going to learn only one word, which you can later use in many different ways.

Today we’re going to learn the word “suppose”

Look at this house. Suppose…there is a ghost in this house!

Ghosts are supposed to wear white clothes, be able to fly and make scary sounds.

I suppose, this girl is not afraid of ghosts!

Ok, now let me explain what the word suppose means in these sentences

The first phrase: Suppose… there is a ghost in this house! Means “Imagine, that there is a ghost”. So suppose can be used to express a guess or an assumption, or just to say: “what if…”

The second phrase: “Ghosts are supposed to wear white” means “We normally expect ghosts to wear white”, in other words “supposed to” is “expected” or “should”.

The third sentence “I suppose, this girl isn’t afraid” means “I think (believe), that she isn’t afraid”.

Let’s say the word suppose together. Pay attention at how you say “eu” sound, watch my mouth.

Now repeat these sentences after me:

Suppose… there is a ghost in this house!

Ghosts are supposed to wear white clothes, be able to fly and make scary sounds.

And the last sentence. I suppose, this girl is not afraid of ghosts!

So now you know that you can use the word suppose to express a guess or assumption, or say that something is expected or should be.

Now answer my questions:

What are ghosts suppose to wear?

What do I suppose about the girl?

What sounds are ghosts supposed to make?

Let’s think of situations when this word will work.

I suppose, this man is in a hurry.

He must be thinking: “Oh my God, I’m supposed to be at the airport in 20 minutes!”.

A movie with Charlie Chaplin is supposed to be funny, but why do people cry? I suppose, it’s rather a drama than a comedy…

Suppose, we are going to Paris. What are we supposed to see there? We are supposed to see the Eifel Tower and the Louvre.

To really learn this word, watch the lesson a few times and then find situations around you where you can use it – don’t be afraid to talk to yourself in a quiet voice!
