Level: Upper-Intermediate Level

- Hello, Fosters Limited (Fosters Ltd).

- Hello, I’m calling to speak to Barry Craven in Graphics.

- One moment please, I’ll just put you through. I’m afraid his line’s busy. Would you like to hold?

- No thanks, I would prefer not to as I’m a bit pushed for time at the moment. Could you put me through to his answer machine, please?

- I’m afraid it’s not working right now. We’ve just had the department refurbished and we’re having a few teething problems with the new telephone set-up.

- OK, in that case could you please put me through to someone else in his department?

Indicative Mood. (Изъявительное наклонение)

Так же как, и в русском языке, в английском языке существует 3 наклонения:
  • Изъявительное (Indicative Mood)
  • Сослагательное (Subjunctive Mood)
  • Повелительное (Imperative Mood)

Изъявительное наклонение показывает, что говорящий рассматривает действие как реальный факт, предположение, желание, требование, побуждение, относящееся к настоящему, прошедшему или будущему:

My dad seldom makes pancakes. - Мой папа редко печёт блины. (говорящий полагает, что это факт)

Изъявительное наклонение выражает наличие или отсутствие объективного действия, в пределах того или другого времени.
Различные отношения субъекта к этому действию им не определяются и передаются уже другими наклонениями. Например:
I wish you luck. (Indicative Mood) - Желаю тебе удачи.
I wish I were you. (Subjunctive Mood) - Жаль, что я - не ты.

Дополнительные примеры предложений в изъявительном наклонении:

I have never been to London. (Present Perfect) - Я никогда не был в Лондоне.

We are going downtown. (Present Continuous) - Мы едем (поедем) в центр города.

I know you were studying at University of Cambridge for 4 years . (Present Indefinite & Past Continuous) -
Я знаю, что ты 4 года училась в Кэмбриджском университете.
