How to improve your listening comprehension.

Hey guys, today I am going to tell you 4 ways to improve your listening comprehension more easily and having fun. 

  • Listening to music: There are a lot of English songs on the internet. Making that you are going to improve your English easily and having fun. I think you should try to listen to every kind of music because you will accumulate too much vocabulary and you will know the right pronunciation and rhythm that native speakers say some words.
  • Talking to a native speaker: I know that is not everyone that have a opportunity to travel abroad. Although nowadays you have everything on the internet: Skype, Social networks, etc. So, there is no excuse to not practice your English with them through it.
  • Doing a English course: In my opinion this is the best advise. Doing it you will have a English teacher to help you with any doubts. Another positive thing is that you are going to practise your English with others students in classroom.
  • Watching films/ series/ cartoons: Nowadays there are too much English movies, series or cartoons than you can watch. You will have the possibility to put a subtitle in your language (or in English) if you cannot understand much of English yet.

Grammar: Should/Shouldn’t and Ought to/Ought not to.

Hey guys, it is time to learn Grammar!! Today, I am going to teach you how to use and the difference between should/should’t and Ought to/Ought not to.

  • Should or Shouldn’t: 

We use should/shouldn’t + VERB (infinitive without to) to give somebody advice, suggestions or say what you think is the right to do.

e.g You should eat more fruit.

e.g I shouldn’t (should not) eat red meat.

e.g. A. Should we go right now? B. Yes, we should.

* We often use I think you should.. or I do not think you should.. NOT I think you shouldn’t.

 

  • Ought to or Ought not to: You can use ought to/ought not to instead of should/shouldn’t,

i.e.. You ought to eat more fruit.

i.e.. I ought not to eat red meat.

  • The only difference is that OUGHT TO / OUGHT NOT TO is more formal. You must use it in a formal writing or to send an e-mail. In a conversation is better to use Should/ Shouldn’t. 

Being a English Teacher

Hey guys, how are you today? I will answer some questions that normally people make me about my experiences with English language and I hope that you enjoy it.

BEING A ENGLISH TEACHER: 

  • Why have I become a English teacher?

I have become a English teacher because I have always loved studying and teaching this language. In my family there are some teachers, but not English and I have inspired me in that. It is gratifying and I do not regret about it.

  • Do you think that is a good idea to become a English teacher in Brazil? 

Yes, I do. It is difficult in the beginning but when you love doing something it worth it. Although English teachers are not valued and they are badly paid. Education is not a priority here.

  • Would like you to be teaching English in some time later?

To be sincere I do not know because life changes faster. I do not like thinking about the future. I always live in the present.

  • What do you like most abou your profession?

Teaching English for me it is a pleasure. I love everything in my profession. life becomes much better and easily when you love what you do.

Pronounciation: Linking words

When people speak fast, they link words together. Linking words and phrases in English are used to combine clauses or sentences presenting contrast, comparison and supposition.

  • Native speakers of English do this naturally. Learning to correctly link words can result in more fluent sounding English. If you do not know how to use it in a right way, you will sound foreign to them.

e.g. Do you go out, don’t you? (You must say like = donchou?)

e.g. Did you go out last night, didn’t you? (You must say as =di jyou?

Speaking advice: keep going

Even when you know a lot of vocabulary connected with a topic than you are talking, you may find that you do not know the exact word or phrase for what you would like to say. If this happens, do not stop speaking! Paraphrase: Use other words to say what you mean and ALWAYS keep going, because of course that the other person will try to help you and understand what you would like to say.

  • Useful language: Try to use this sentences.
  1. What I mean is… 
  2. I cannot remember the word, but it is… 
  3. I have forgotten the word right now, but it is..
