Country Names

Not everybody in the world calls each country by the same name. For instance, I live in Spain, but the Spaniards call this country España. As this is an English language learning site, we will look at the English spellings of countries in these Activities. Do these Activities and you will learn how to spell each of the countries of the world.

Phrasal Verbs

Phrasal verbs are a class of verbs which combine with a preposition or adverb to act as a single verb which says more than the words themselves. The meaning of a phrasal verb is often very different to the meanings of the words that are in the phrasal verb and this makes them difficult for students of English to master. Native English speakers tend to use lots of phrasal verbs when speaking.

Collocations

Certain words always go with other words. The words just "sound right" if you are a native English speaker. An expression like make the bed is a collocation but many students confuse it with do the bed which sounds wrong to native English speakers. If you do this course, you will not make mistakes with these collocations.

Food Idioms

In this course, I am going to spill the beans about food idioms, and I know my onions, I can tell you. There are a huge number of idioms that are related to food, and so I have decided to give them to you on a silver platter in the form of this course. Students have enough on their plates without having to read and memorise lists of vocabulary, which is certainly not everyone’s cup of tea. This course will encourage you to not only learn and remember the idioms, but also to have fun with them. For, sure as eggs is eggs, having fun is a great aid to learning and remembering. Bon appetit!

Jokes

Understanding another culture's humour can be one of the most challenging things for a student of any language to master. The lessons in this course are all typical English jokes which depend for their humour on word play, puns, and pronunciation. If you understand the humour in these jokes, you will be well on your way to understanding English humour in general.
