WhimsicalLL

Beszélsz nyelveken? Vajon kinek mi a titka? Kidobott a porosz oktatási rendszer az utcára, és már ment is folyékonyan? Gondolatok, ötletek, építő javaslatok és inspiráló meglátások fogják hatékonyabbá tenni a tanítást, mert mindig, mindenhol tanárok, és egyúttal tanulók is vagyunk. A blog célja a whimsical, unorthodox és egyéb finnugor jelzőkkel megbélyegezhető módszerek, vagy nem módszerek, ötletek és sikersztorik gyűjtőhelyének lenni a második (harmadik, nx) nyelv elsajátítására vonatkozóan. Ha van olyan ötleted, módszered, ami NÁLAD működött, oszd meg velünk, hátha valaki magára ismer, alkalmazza, és megtanul még jobban tanulni, vagy tanítani. Ha mégsem, akkor is legalább elmélyítettük azt a tudást, miszerint a tanulás és tanítás személyes dolog, nem sablonok halmaza. Ide írhatsz: semiambidextrous@gmail.com

Ha valóban ki akarod használni a lehetőségeket, tanulj amerikai tanároktól teljesen INGYEN. Itt megtalálhatod a lakóhelyedhez legközelebbi ilyen lehetőséget: Ingyenes angol

Her Ladyship is fond of a good blaze then!

 

Persze, ez már irodalom, meg az átlag nyelvtanuló ehhez kevés, bla-bla-bla. Lehet; na és? Akkor már nem is veszünk könyvet a kezünkbe, meg sem ismertetjük a legnagyobb műveket (vagy épp az egész kicsiket) azokkal, akiknek a jövőjéről, képességeiről, tehetségeiről a legtöbbször halvány fogalmunk sem lehet, beleértve ebbe saját magunkat is?!

WORD FORMATION – PRACTICE

Within a short walk of Longbourn lived a family with whom the Bennets were particularly (1) ________________ (intimacy). Sir William Lucas had been formerly in trade in Meryton, where he had made a (2) ________________ (tolerate) fortune, and risen to the honour of knighthood by an address to the king during his (3) ________________ (mayor). The distinction had perhaps been felt too strongly. It had given him a disgust to his business, and to his residence in a small market town; and, in (4) ________________ (quit) them both, he had removed with his family to a house about a mile from Meryton, denominated from that period Lucas Lodge, where he could think with (5) ________________ (please) of his own importance, and, (6) ________________ (shackle) by business, occupy himself solely in being civil to all the world. For, though elated by his rank, it did not render him supercilious; on the contrary, he was all attention to everybody. By nature (7) ________________ (offend), friendly, and obliging, his presentation at St. James’s had made him courteous.
Lady Lucas was a very good kind of woman, not too clever to be a (8) ________________ (value) neighbour to Mrs. Bennet. They had several children. The eldest of them, a sensible, intelligent young woman, about twenty-seven, was Elizabeth’s intimate friend.
(Jane Austen: Pride and Prejudice, Chapter 5.)

Szeptemberi Kötelező

 

When speaking English, it is important that students are not afraid to make a mistake. Sometimes, when I ask a student a question they hesitate for what seems like a long time. This could be for one of four reasons: didn't understand the question, didn't hear the question properly, didn't know how to reply or were just afraid to make a mistake. As long as they can give some sort of quick reply in English then they shouldn't be punished. Appropriate answers for the above examples would be: "I don't understand the question", "Say again please" and "I don't know how to answer".

Everyone is scared to some extent when starting something new. Try to break the ice by playing some fun games and singing some easy songs with the students for the first week or so. Don't worry if these activities are noisy or seem to be irrelevant to the course material. The important thing is that the students are "warming up" and are getting used to speaking English in a relaxed atmosphere.

CLASSROOM COMMANDS:

English should be used in the classroom as much as possible. At the start of a new school year, spend a few days going through all the classroom commands that might be useful.

* Please stand up/sit down.
* Stand at the front of the classroom.
* Sit up straight.
* Fold your arms.
* Come here please.
* Go back to your seat.
* Go and stand outside.
* Line-up outside.
* Come in.

Follow Bigfoot

Ez is egy saját gyártmány - eléggé többfunkciós, mint a legtöbb, ami tőlem származik - vagyis remélhetőleg nem mindenki csak nyelvtant lát benne...

A szintje lower-intermediate (bár azért erről a beosztásról is megvan a különbejáratú véredényem... :D ), de kitűnően használható bármilyen középszintűnek besorolt tanulónál.

No, no, I have picure in picture here...

TALKING ABOUT PICTURES

Nyelvvizsgára készülők és felkészítők kérésére, mert egyébként egy kellemes New York-i múzeumi séta esetét leszámítva, az egész nagyon gáz, így mesterségesen, érdeklődés nélkül előállítva.

Véleményem szerint.

 

 

1. OVERALL ABOUT THE PICTURE

What kind of a picture is it?
• It's a color / black and white photograph.
• It's a picture of a painting / drawing / poster.
• I think it's an advertisement / a snapshot from a family holiday / a passport photo / a news photo.
• I think it's from a family album / a newspaper / a magazine.

Where was it taken? [To take a photo(graph) of somebody/something]
• I think it was taken in a big city / a Muslim country / the desert because...

When was it taken?
• I think it was taken in summertime / at noon / around Christmas / in November / at midnight because...

2. WHAT IS IN THE PICTURE?

Describe what you see. Use as many adjectives and adverbs as possible.
• It's a very nice, comfortable bedroom with a double bed, ...
• It's a noisy, polluted street in the center of a big European city. There are two very high buildings on the...

Locate the details.
• In the front / middle / bottom left comer there is a(n)...
• On the right we can see a(n)...
• Next to the ... there are two...
• In the background/foreground...
• Behind / under / on top of the... there is a(n)...
• To the right/left of the ... there is a(n)...

Say what people or animals are doing or what is happening (tense: present continuous).
• The man on the sidewalk it just about to cross the street to meet the woman in a yellow skirt who is standing on the other side of the street.
• It's raining heavily. The river is to flood the city any moment.

You can make up a story; however, remember that you will have to give reasons for your assumptions.
• I think they are boyfriend and girlfriend because she is smiling and he has a rose in his hand. Maybe they are going to the movies.

Bijan for men?

Love them tough-talkin' cowboys? Sure, who doesn't? Oddly enough, though, ole' western cowboy slang was a bit different from what you'll pick up from Hollywood productions (go figger).

Na, íme néhány szépség ebből a tárházból:

(Több forrásból valók az alábbiak, de az egyik legjob gyűjtemény itt található: Blevin's Dictionary of the American West.)

 

above snakes
Above ground. Said of a man who's still alive.

bach
To bachelor it. For men to keep house without a woman's help. Pronounced, and sometimes spelled, "batch".

bear sign
On the range, doughnuts.
