Monthly English Corner & Weekly Quote

  • August English Corner

    This month we will look at two practical ways to improve your English. First, pick a video (i.e., movie) with a lot of action and call a friend who also wants to improve listening and speaking skills. Have one person face the TV and the other face away. Show a portion of the video but turn off the volume. The person facing the TV describes the scene to the person facing away. Then the person facing away describes what he heard. Finally, watch the video together with the sound to see how accurate you were. Than trade places, and do it again for other clips. Secondly, build up your vocabulary schema by making labels for the various objects, appliances, furniture, etc., around your home or apartment–each month, label many things you don’t know how to say in English. Every time you walk around your home you will see these labels and it will help to reinforce the vocabulary. It is also helpful to be able to associate the real object with the name in your memory. Visit again next month!  © Mark Peter, M.A. Used with permission.

    The world seldom notices who the teachers are, but civilization depends on what they do and what they say.
