Idiom Activation Pack - Food Idioms 6

Idiom Activation Pack - Food Idioms 6

Idioms are expressions that are natural to native English speakers. They are very confusing for non-native English speakers. They're confusing because idioms don't mean what the words say. You cannot literally translate English idioms into another language. The vocabulary in this British English lesson is important for students to learn and master. There are a lot of idioms in this lesson as well as a set of questions which I have designed to help you learn, remember, and use the vocabulary and make it part of your active vocabulary. If you are serious about improving your British English vocabulary, these common British English idioms are essential. The idioms are: Eggs in one basket, Cheesy, Cool as a cucumber, Forbidden fruit, Give a fig, Knife-edge, Mutton dressed as lamb, Proof of the pudding, Red as a beetroot, and Rest on laurels.

 
 

Vocabulary Activation Pack - Smells

Vocabulary Activation Pack - Smells

  • My dog’s got no nose!
  • No nose? How does the poor thing smell?
  • He smells horrible! In fact, he stinks!

Why is this funny? It’s funny because a dog without a nose would not be able to smell smells, but it could still be a very smelly dog. Smell is both a verb and a noun, while smelly is an adjective. In this Vocabulary Activation Pack, I will be looking at the various words we have to describe different types of smells, be they good, bad, or somewhere in between. Words we will examine include aroma, bouquet, fetor, fragrance, odour, perfume, pong, reek, scent, smell, stench, stink, and whiff. Vocabulary Activation Pack - Smells

 

Britlish Vocabulary Memoriser

Britlish Vocabulary Memoriser

Are you frustrated at not being able to remember new vocabulary? You are not alone! One of the biggest problems faced by anyone learning a new language is the memorisation of new vocabulary. One of the questions that I am most often asked by students is, "Do you have any advice on how to remember new vocabulary?" This got me thinking, and I decided to do something to help not only my students but anyone who wants a fool-proof way of memorising new vocabulary. What I came up with is what I call the Britlish Vocabulary Memoriser. It's free to use for all Britishers. In this presentation, I'm going to show you how it works and how it can help you. I built it to work on any device that has Internet access, from a mobile phone to a desktop computer. All your data is stored on the Britlish server, so using the app won’t take up any valuable space on your system memory, but I hope you will fill your memory with new vocabulary. Let’s see how it works, shall we?


Present Continuous - GA4

Present Continuous - GA4

I told you about the past and present tenses in Grammar Activation Pack 1. I also introduced you to the aspects – simple, continuous, and perfect, and showed you why the three key verbs, do, be, and have, are so important. In Grammar Activation Packs 2 and 3, I looked at the Present and Past tense of the simple aspect. In this Grammar Activation Pack, I am going to tell you how the second of the key verbs, be, is used for the continuous aspect, present tense. The continuous aspect is marked by the auxiliary verb be plus an ing form of a non-finite verb. There are 5 finite inflected forms of the verb be: am, is, are, and was, were. You already know that the inflected forms of be, am, is, and are, mark the present tense and that the inflected forms of be, was, and were, mark the past tense. In this Grammar Activation Pack, I will be looking at the present tense, continuous aspect. I will look at the past tense, continuous aspect in the next pack. 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.

 
 

Fleece

Fleece

Fleece is a man-made fabric made from a plastic fibre called polyester. The polyester fleece fabric was first created in the 1970s by the company Malden Mills. As Malden Mills chose not to patent their invention, the inexpensive fleece was soon available to everyone and its popularity has since far exceeded that of wool. This lesson looks at vocabulary associated with fleeces and wool.
