Seven benefits of walking …

Hannah Roberts

Insider; 17.06.2020

‘Walking is a form of exercise that can significantly improve your physical and mental health. Not only can it extend your life and prevent disease, but it can also boost your energy and mood.

In addition, studies show that if you walk regularly and quickly enough, it could be the only aerobic exercise you need to keep your heart and lungs healthy.

It’s also accessible, easy, and free. So if you’re one of the 47% of adults in the US who don’t meet the CDC’s Physical Activity Guidelines for aerobic activity, then walking is a habit worth pursuing and keeping.’

How to get ready for the next examination of English language

How to get ready for the next examination of English Language

Some suggestions

1/ download and print on paper: Parallel Papers & Words

2/ try to learn skeleton of verbs [PPA, first pages], but not all of them

3/ revise and study vocabulary from every lesson [WORDS]
-use a highlighter / ball pen to underline those words you know-

4/ have a bird´s eye view of the things you need to learn: BOOK, notebook, MOODLE texts, practice, documents

5/ use a dictionary

6/ get used to reading: messages, news, texts

How do I get used to reading?
Every single day, if I get free time, no matter where I am, subway, public road, home, school, company. I will read something in English. And I have downloaded many English reading apps and News apps, even read interesting answers in Quora.

After step by step, I get quite familiar with the vocabularies, even though there are thousands of words I am struggled with, but I don’t feel uncomfortable anymore.

Now, I keep the same habit as routine, and every day I read at least 30 pages in an English textbook and freestyle reading during the rest of the time.

Finally, I have to say, there is no shortcut, not at all. Only master it through reading, reading, and reading“. (Erasmus Yan. July 13, 2018.-QUORA)

You can only get used to reading by reading. Try starting with short books and light material, then gradually move on to longer and denser subjects. Since I have attention deficit problems, I couldn’t read for more than 10 minutes straight a year ago. Now I’m used to it and regularly read in 3–4 hour bursts and occasionally as much as 15 hours a day if I happen to get my hands on something I’m passionate about. I would recommend easing your way in with lighter material.” (Andrew Holmes. July 15, 2018. QUORA)

7/ get used to listening English talk (audios, TV series, short videos)

8/ distinguish THEORY from PRACTICE. Learn the concepts you must learn by heart. See which of the parts of theory are BASICS, e.g: cardinal numbers, how to tell the time, etcetera

Webpage, MOODLE and summer tasks for English language students

22 June 2016

twitter: @eugenio_fouz

English language.-Business English 1

June 22nd, 2016

The webpage of school is an essential tool. There one can see practical, general information. Students will find the dates for examinations, warnings, material required for every subject, activities, proposals, pictures, etcetera

A different thing is AULA VIRTUAL also known as @moodle (twitter). Here you will get exercises, tasks, theory pages, GIFS, images, links, videos and so on. Use dictionaries of English language and Spanish to learn new words.

(Write here the meaning of: find … / also known as … / tool … )

It is a good idea to study English language, Literature or Business English notions a few minutes every day. You must not study without a pen and a notebook. It is important not to confuse basic words in English. A typical mistake students make is writing Thuesday instead of Thursday (jueves)

If you think that doing these summer exercises is the key to pass the English language exam, you are wrong. These exercises are only a minimum part of all the work you have to do in summer. Study every day, listen to the BBC podcasts very often, use dictionaries, read English newspapers, read a reader of your choice, write a lot of English words, practise saying verbs in loud voice.

If possible, watch TV series in English language audio with subtitles in Spanish — or English.

Revise basics such as days of the week, numbers, vocabulary, personal pronouns, possessive adjectives, lexical verbs (regular and irregular verbs), auxiliary verbs, conjugations of verbs, idioms, abbreviations, et cetera.

Consult and exploit all the stuff you have: textbook, notebook, Parallel Papers, audios, podcasts, Aula Virtual or @moodle, television, trips to the UK, Skype

Be good & good luck!

Eugene 😉
