  1. When we conjugate a verb in the present perfect tense we put the past participle form of the verb, e.g: I have told, you have told, he has told (yo he dicho, tú has dicho, él ha dicho) To tell told told: decir
  2. A good answer to thanks could be: you´re welcome!

           Also you can say: anytime! / it´s all right! / no problem!

  1. Remember this: ordinal numbers: fifth (5º), eighth (8º), ninth (9º), fifteenth (15º)
  2. You must be polite (but not: “you must to be polite”. MUST cannot take the particle TO of infinitive near itself. MUST is an auxiliary verb such as WILL, WOULD, SHALL, SHOULD, CAN, COULD, etcetera
  3. BASICS: personal pronouns of object: me, you, him, her, it, us, you, them
  4. Note the specific points in the subject Business English. There are certain readings included in the coursebook (rules for good customer service, how to answer to complaints, how to answer the phone politely)

  6. Start the reader at Christmas! Use a dictionary or smartphone to make notes on vocabulary. A good idea might be the purchase of a bloc for notes.

Webpage, MOODLE and summer tasks for English language students

22 June 2016

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 😉

El método ideal para aprender un idioma

4 June 2016

twitter: @eugenio_fouz

Elliot Erwin ok

(Elliot Erwitt, fotógrafo)

No dejo de preguntarme cuál es el método ideal para aprender un idioma. De verdad que es una inquietud constante en mi  vida de profesor de inglés. Hoy recojo las ideas de Paul Seligson al respecto. Es interesante el enfoque en la escucha de inglés hablado que plantea en una entrevista publicada en EL PAÍS (@el_pais):

http://tinyurl.com/h8hupx2

Tenemos cuatro habilidades en la vida, ¿cuál se usa más? La parte auditiva se emplea un 45%. Nos pasamos la vida escuchando, un 30% hablando, el 16% del tiempo leyendo y solo 9% escribiendo. Los exámenes de las escuelas oficiales reparten estas habilidades por igual, al 25% cada una. Y en la vida no es así” (Paul Seligson) [extracto de la entrevista realizada por Pilar Álvarez para EL PAÍS, 30 de mayo de 2016]

Quien quiera ser bueno en una lengua extranjera ha de leer mucho, estudiar gramática y adquirir vocabulario. Soy un apasionado de los podcasts de la BBC (@BBC_podcasts), los readers y el diccionario. [WordReference es un excelente diccionario online]. No descartaría los vídeos de @YouTube o @euronews. El mejor estudiante de idiomas es el más inquieto, el más humilde y el más curioso.

A través de Paul Seligson he llegado a esta página web: busuu.com (@busuu)

https://www.busuu.com/es/

Aquellos que empiecen ahora a estudiar inglés, les recomiendo esta página speakspeak.com

http://speakspeak.com

Hay muchas páginas web de inglés con ejercicios y respuestas. No estaría mal leer prensa inglesa a menudo como The Huffington Post http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk , The Guardian o The Daily Mail entre otros.

En mi opinión uno de los enlaces imprescindibles para aprender inglés sería este de podcasts de la BBC inglesa:
