Fairy Tales for Children

Hi, boys and girls!!!, 

As far as I am concerned, one of the best ways of learning a new language is watching videos, since it's a very easy fun way to get in touch with the new language. 

Because of that, I encourage you to watch the following videos with your little students or children. They already know all these fairy tales, so it can't be difficult to follow the story, as well, if they are older primary students, they can also read the subtitles in English. 

ONCE UPON A TIME, ... 



 Learning English is always fun!!!

Welcome SPRING!!!


Hi, Guys!!!, 


Let's say Welcome, SPRING!!! Eventually, we can enjoy longer sunny days! It's fantastic, isn't it?

 As Charles Dickens wrote in Great Expectations:
"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade".

ReaL EnGliSh ConVeRsaTionS

Hi, Guys!!!, 

Once again, I'd like to encourage you to watch the following video. You can practise your listening, as well, you can't get lost since you can find the subtitles below. This video is starred by its author, Drew Badger, who introduces himself as an English speaking confident expert and co-founder of  EnglishAnyone.com. He admitted that he was actually a frustrated language learner as many people. He told his own experience learning Japanese for the first time. Because of that, I think his videos are worthwhile as well as his web: EnglishAnyone.com

RePoRtinG VerBS (Reported Speech)

Hi, Guys!!!, 


Have you ever heard about RePoRtinG VerBS? Yes, sure! (In class) ;)

These forms are used to report what others have said, but these verbs can more accurately describe what somebody has said. Depending on the verb chosen to rephrase a sentence, you need to use a different structure, in other words, if you use "ADMIT", you should take into account that this verb can be followed by a Gerund or a THAT Clause. 

For example: "I acted inappropriately", he told the police.
He admitted that he had acted inappropriately OR He admitted acting inappropriately.

Therefore, as you can imagine, you must study these reporting verbs and practise a lot. So, if you want to start practising, click here:

WHOSE, MaKinG QueStioNs??

Hi, Guys!!!, 

When I was correcting your paper exams, I realised you are still confused with WHOSE at questions. Let's see that again ...

 

WHOSE indicates POSSESSION, and like WHICH or WHAT can be used with or without a Noun as a question word. Now, let's focus on the following questions and answers, all of them are correct, possible in English, though they are slightly different.


1. Whose are these pencils?(correct)
These pencils are mine; They are mine; These are my pencils, These are Helen's.(possible answers)

2. Whose pencils are these? (correct)

3. Whose are these? (correct)

 Now, I hope to clear it up for you!!! ;)
