A student can´t make the same old mistake test after test. Learn once and for all the correct spelling of specific words (**autum for autumn, **fiveteen for fifteen, **fourty for forty, **january for January, *Tuesday when you refer to Thursday)
There are only 7 days in a week!(Won´t you be able to remember them the right way?)
We use the analogical time. Say 3.30 (half past three). As you should know all months of the year and days of the week are written in capital letters. It is considered a spelling (orthography) mistake to write **march for March. Imagine somebody writing **paula for Paula.
A student of English language knows the correct name of the tools he uses. If he is asked to choose a demonstrative he understands that he must try one of these: this, these, that, those
Learn English topics little by little, that is, learn in the first place the list of personal pronouns of subject (I, you) and learn personal pronouns of object afterwards (me, you, him)
Do not confuse personal pronouns with possessive adjectives. Possessive adjectives always come along with a noun (my book, your sister, his girlfriend, her father, its meal, our teacher)
Definite articles, indefinite articles, numerals (cardinal numbers are one, two, twelve, one hundred) (ordinal numbers are first, second, twenty-third), adverbs (slowly, nearby, happily), linkers (but, however, and, nevertheless), pronouns (I, you, he, she), etcetera
There are certain formulas in language that one must learn by heart (by heart.de memoria)
How are you? How do you do! What are you doing? What ´s your last name/surname, please? I don´t understand. I´m afraid I didn´t hear you, could you repeat that, please? Thank you! You´re welcome!/No problem!/ It´s alright!/ Any time! How old are you? I´m 23 Have you got a car? No, I haven´t Do you mind if I smoke in here? No, go ahead!
Try to take part in the class dynamics by asking your questions, voluntareeing to the blackboard, following the chorus repetition of phrases, speaking English, doing the homework.
Making mistakes is a step everybody has to take.
Typical mistakes of insecure students:
buy/sell; before/after; Tuesday/Thursday; actually/currently; easy/essay (comprar/vender; antes/después; martes/jueves; realmente/actualmente; fácil/ensayo)
Write your last name and first name in the examination paper, your class group and date
Write in good calligraphy if possible. If not, try to be clear [Do not forget that a teacher must read your answers]
Once you have finished your examination take one minute to see if everything is right. Check your answers, grammar, vocabulary, spellings. See if you have left any exercise unfinished.
Be good & good luck!
