Webpage, MOODLE and summer tasks for English language students

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!

Nacing is not nothing

Elevent is not eleven

People is is wrong, you must say people are

You cannot translate what you like but try to be accurate to the meaning of the message

You need a subject: it is ten past two, it is too difficult for us

Do not mix Spanish and English and end a sentence by writing salud instead of health

Do not ignore parts of the sentence leaving it unfinished

Thing is not the same as think

It is is not is it?

The question mark only takes place  at the end of the sentence, not in the beginning

The double negative sentence doesn´t exist in English

Don´t say nothing ???

Thuesday is not Tuesday or Thursday

Movile phone is not mobile phone

You cannot use … all the time . finish your sentences with and so on, etcetera

Inglish is wrong, it must be English

Whit is wrong, if you are dealing with the opposite to without

Asunt is not English, maybe you mean affair, issue, topic

Do not write exams in pencil, unless you are asked to do so

Good bye is not right, it must be goodbye or bye bye

Learn all verbs with their complete forms, that is, skeleton of verbs :

Infinitive “to write” past “wrote” past participle “written”
