Consonants 1

An introduction to Britlish English Consonants (I have hayfever so had to use AI voices for this pack). There are 24 consonant sounds in British English. The consonant sounds are shown in the blue box at the bottom of the British English IPA chart, under the vowels. A consonant is a basic speech sound in which the breath is at least partially obstructed and which can be combined with a vowel to form a syllable. Consonants can only be produced with a vowel. There are 21 letters in the English alphabet which represent consonants but there are 24 consonant sounds. The consonant letters of the alphabet are, B, C, D, F, G, H, J, K, L, M, N, P, Q, R, S, T, V, X, Z, and usually W and Y. The consonant sounds are grouped into several types. There are the plosives, the fricatives, the affricates, the nasals and the approximants. English consonants are classified by technical terms which refer to the way air escapes as we say the sound, where the obstruction to the air flow takes place, and whether the vocal cords are used.

A Deadly Lesson - An English Murder Mystery

Created using industry-leading e-learning software, English Mysteries are finding new ways to make learning interesting, engaging, and effective, through the gamification of the learning process. Interact with each character and ask questions to help you uncover their secrets and reveal the clues that will help you accuse the right character of the crime. To check that you understand everything you have been told by each character, you will have to pass a knowledge check before progressing to the next round. You will find important clues in each round which, if you pay careful attention, will help you understand each character’s motives for committing the crime. As you investigate the characters you will come to understand them and the little secrets they might rather keep hidden. You get hours of entertaining content including hundreds of carefully crafted images, numerous sound files, plenty of knowledge checks, a glossary to help you, numerous clues to consider and much, much more besides. With compelling story lines and interesting characters, English Mysteries help the student learn English by fully engaging them in each round of the game. To correctly solve the mystery, the player must understand what they are reading, hearing, and learning.

Will Continuous and Will Perfect - GA15

In Grammar Activation Pack 13, we looked at how we use will and shall to talk about the future. In this Pack we will be looking at other ways to use will to talk about the future. You already know that the future tense is marked by will, the continuous aspect is marked by be +ing, and the perfect aspect is marked by have plus past participle. In this pack we will be looking at the differences between the future continuous the future perfect, and the future perfect continuous. The future continuous tell us that at a time in the future the action will be ongoing. We can use will be +ing in a similar way to be going to to talk about things we plan to do. This British English grammar is essential for all students of English and the many exercises in the pack will help you master it quickly and enjoyably.
