There+be構文を使ってみよう

The There+be Sentence Structure
There+be構文を使って講師と会話してみましょう。
There be構文は、thereではなく後ろの名詞によってbeの形が決まる、一見ユニークな構文です。 考え方として、Thereは主語ではなく導入。後ろの名詞が意味上の主語なのです。 There is a dog. 犬がいる There are dogs. 犬が(何匹も)いる といった感じです。基本的に、それまで話題にあがらなかったこと/ものを初めて話したいときに使われることが多いです。

Please use the "There+be" sentence structure.

I'm familiar with this sentence structure. I'll show you a example. There used to be a department here. I often go there when I was a child. Although it was most popular in this city, it is finally deserted. Now there is only a movie theater.

I'm familiar with this sentence structure. I'll show you an example. There used to be a department here. I often went there when I was a child. Although it was the most popular in this city, it was finally deserted. Now there is only a movie theater. 

1) "example" starts with a vowel, so we need "an"
2,4) these seem to be related to a past event, so the verb should be in the past tense
3) the superlative adjective requires the definite article
Okay, you're not quite using the structure "There+be", you are using "USED TO, BE USED TO AND GET USED TO" which are different forms of presenting past habits, present habits, and future habits. Now, please revise the following example and try again: There were some coins on top of the coffee table which I need to pay my parking lot.

Oh, I made a mistake at the beginning, but the last sentence could be fine I think. Thank you for your example. I’ll try again: There are a various of ice creams at a 31 shop. I can’t choose which ones.

自然な表現

Oh, I made a mistake at the beginning, but the last sentence could be fine I think. Thank you for your example. I’ll try again: There are various types of ice creams at 31 shops. I can’t choose which ones.

1) "various" should be followed by a plural noun, so here we can say "various types"
2) is this the name of a single shop or 31 different shops? If it's just one shop we should use capital letters and remove the article.
There is a lot of choice at our local ice cream shop too. There is one counter in the corner of the shop that only sells durian flavour ice cream. There aren't many customers at that counter, so you get served very quickly! What are the most unusual flavours at the 31 shop?

Durian? Wow! I have never met this flavor. How is smell? I was surprised that there was soy source ice cream. I couldn’t try it at that time because I felt scared.

自然な表現

Durian? Wow! I have never tried this flavor. How does it smell? I was surprised that there was soy sauce ice cream. I couldn’t try it at that time because I felt scared. 

1) a more natural verb choice; we usually "try different flavors"
2) a more natural expression; we say "how does X smell?"
3) spelling correction
I have never tried durian but it sounds so interesting! Soy sauce sounds like it might be quite bitter. You should try it and let me know what you think! What is your favorite ice cream flavor?

I will someday and tell you the taste next time. I like pineapple and coconut flavor. Is there any flavors you recommend?

自然な表現

I will someday and tell you about the taste next time. I like pineapple and coconut flavor. Are there any flavors you recommend? 

1) it's natural to add "about" here, since we talk or tell someone "about" something
2) "flavors" is plural here so the verb form is "are"
That is an interesting combination! Most people I know are not so familiar with the fruity ice creams. I enjoy hazelnut or chocolate! Do you have a favorite brand of ice cream?

I like them, hazelnut and chocolate. My favorite brand is Haagen-Dazs. There are many limited edition flavors. It’s expensive a little bit, so I get it sometimes as a reward myself.

Good!
1) we just need the preposition "for" here
