Writing Dates

Rocío from Spain asked about a lesson on how to write dates. We are spoilt for choice when writing dates, but this choice makes it seem complicated. The general rule to follow is that you are consistent in your choice of style and that you choose a style appropriate to your audience. The more complicated the style, the more formal the audience. This lesson will show you all the ways to write dates in British English and will give you some listening and writing practice with dates, too.

Linking Sounds - An Introduction

Linking Sounds - An Introduction

Whether you are English, Chinese, Polynesian, Russian, or any other nationality, you share the same anatomy as me. This anatomy, in terms of our vocal tract, limits the sounds that we can easily say in a sentence. Of the two types of sounds in English, consonants and vowels, we cannot easily say two vowel sounds one after the other. Linking sounds bridge the gap between such difficult-to-say combinations of sounds. There are three linking sounds in English: the linking W, the linking J, and the linking R. This lesson will help you to see and hear how linking sounds work and how they can help you to improve not only your accent but also your listening skills.


Pronunciation Activation Pack 33 - The / ʃ / in Ship and the / ʒ / in Genre

Pronunciation Activation Pack 33 - The / ʃ / in Ship and the / ʒ / in Genre

Activate the consonant sounds / ʃ / and / ʒ /. In this Pronunciation Activation Pack we will be looking at the consonant sounds / ʃ / and / ʒ /. We will look at the letter combinations that give the / ʃ / and / ʒ / sounds. We will look at lots of words which have the / ʃ / and / ʒ / sounds in them. Finally, we will activate your ability to hear and produce the / ʃ / and / ʒ / sounds correctly. The / ʃ / and / ʒ / sounds are palato-alveolar fricatives made by disrupting the air flow by bunching up the tongue against the roof of the mouth. The / ʃ / sound on the chart is shown in blue, which means it is unvoiced, while the / ʒ / sound is shown in green, which means that it is voiced.

Would or Used To

Would or Used To

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.


Attracted to or Attracted by

Attracted to or Attracted by

Prepositions are difficult for students of English and when they are used with two very similar expressions they can be especially difficult. This lesson will show you how we use the two expressions attracted to and attracted by and will give you practice using both. I have selected real examples of the expressions from the British National Corpus, and have included several activators to help you with the use of the two expressions and the pronunciation of sentences which use them.
