How to Ask 5WH Open Questions

With over 200 pages, more than 7000 words and 11 interactive quizzes, this English Activation Pack will answer all the questions you have ever had about asking open questions in English.

Using the 5WH question words whatwhywhenwherewho and how, is the easiest way to get all the information you need about any subject.

This English Activation Pack explains in detail how to use these interrogatives. It also explains the differences between subject and object sentences.

Adverb questions and answering Why questions are also covered, as are indirect questions, polite requests and rhetorical questions.

A section covering useful English grammar as it relates to questions is also included covering sentence structure, subjects, objects and passives, amongst other things.

The English Activation Pack also looks at the pronunciation of questions, in particular when to use rising or falling intonation, and also explains how to punctuate sentences when writing.

Included are hundreds of example sentences for situations such as shopping, eating out, travel, entertainment, time and weather.

Each section also has an interactive quiz to help you test your understanding of any of the areas covered.

Silent H at the Beginning of Words

Some English words begin with the letter H but don’t start with the / h / sound.

This is because these words were borrowed into English from the original French. At first, they kept their French pronunciation, but gradually, over time, most of them became Anglicised and lost their French connection.

Some of them, however, refused to lose their “posh” French pronunciation. These words, like honour, never had the / h / sound inserted at the beginning.

I made this video and the English Activation Pack to help students like you learn which words should be pronounced with an initial / h / sound and which should not.

There are 150 common English words in this English Activation Pack, and all have a recording of me giving the correct English pronunciation for you to copy.

I have also included two interactive quizzes that will help you to master the vocabulary and the pronunciation. The quiz questions each have an audio file for you to listen to the pronunciation of the word in question.

This is an extensive pack that took a lot of effort to make. It was made at the request of my wonderful student, Monica, from Italy.

Italian, Spanish, and French students will find this pack particularly useful, though it will be helpful to any student of English looking to improve their vocabulary and pronunciation.

Works on All Devices

I built this English Activation Pack in HTML5 so that it is compatible with all devices from smartphones to desktops, whatever the operating system.

The video pack will open inside whatever browser you are using, and the resources are delivered directly from the Amazon cloud for speed of download.
