Whenever we learn something new, there is always room for improvement. Let’s enter the Room for Improvement, shall we, and see how it can help us improve our English. In this lesson we will improve our knowledge of birds and some of the more common words we use to talk about birds. We’ll learn about hens, roosters, ducks, drakes, geese, ganders, pigeons, sparrows, and owls. You will also be able to practice reading IPA phonetic symbols.
People sell us things every day. Buying and selling things is what makes the world go round. This lesson will teach you the difference between on sale and for sale, as well as prepositions we use with other expressions like sell out, sell on, and up for sale.
I picked up one of the video English lessons I made as part of my Daily Dose of English series from 2010 and thought it would make a good basis for a Britlish Library lesson. In this lesson we will look at the phrasal verb, pick up, as well as the phrasal verbs hold against, get on with, and take off. We will also look at some vocabulary items such as for a song, frail, record, vinyl, speaker, florist, look good on, tab, pick up the pieces, new line, bug, and runway. I hope that you will pick up a lot of new words in this lesson.
I made a lot of video English lessons in 2010 as part of my Daily Dose of English series. Unfortunately, they never became quite as popular as I hoped they would. Nevertheless, they were interesting and relevant then and they remain so today. I have taken a video English lesson about countable and uncountable nouns and have turned it into this Britlish Library lesson. The technology I now use for my lessons allows me to explore the subject of countable and uncountable nouns in much greater detail than a simple video English lesson allows. Try this more active way of learning and see how countable and uncountable nouns really work. You will also learn about definite and indefinite articles.
In 2010 I would make a new YouTube video English lesson every day. I called the series Daily Dose of English. Unfortunately, the series would never be as popular or as useful as I had hoped because it was too passive. I would later create the Britlish Library and find the software I needed to make my original vision for my lessons a reality. The Daily Doses of English were useful then and they are still useful today, but now I am able to make them into the active learning lessons that I used to dream about. This active English lesson looks at the verbs would and used to and shows you how to use them.
