Going to the Toilet

 flag 5 Stars by a Britlisher in France

Rating added: Tuesday, 3rd November 2020

The language in this lesson is very important and yet it is never covered in any English textbooks or English classrooms. It is the language of the toilet and it is language that you need to learn if you are ever to call yourself proficient. It's not surprising that students never learn this language and that teachers never teach it as almost ev...

Affluenza

Rating added: Sunday, 20th September 2020

I have designed this lesson to look at the vocabulary of wealth. Whether you are poor, wealthy, or stinking rich, you will learn much about the words we use to describe people who do have money. You will also learn about some common portmanteau words. If you don’t know what a portmanteau word is, you really do need to do this lesson. The v...

Speech Segments

Rating added: Saturday, 19th September 2020

A look at how and why speech is broken up into parts, or segments, and how this segmentation affects pronunciation. This lesson will help you to hear the breaks in speech that we get at speech segment boundaries but not within the segments themselves. This look at this important feature of pronunciation also looks at content and function words a...

My Biggest Fear

 flag 4 Stars by a Britlisher in Netherlands

Rating added: Friday, 11th September 2020

We all seem to be worried these days. We're worried about the coronavirus. We are worried about the effects of the virus on the economy. We are worried about our futures. Worries are a natural human response to circumstances which arise because, unlike most other animals, we are capable not only of agonising over the past, but also of looking in...

Frozen Food

 flag 4 Stars by a Britlisher in Netherlands

Rating added: Tuesday, 1st September 2020

Vocabulary that we use when talking about frozen food. This lesson was inspired by a student of mine, Monica from Italy, who asked why, if we freeze things, don't we unfreeze them? I decided to make a microlearning lesson that would provide the answer and give students the necessary vocabulary for talking about defrosting, thawing...

Irregular F Plurals

 flag 4 Stars by a Britlisher in Netherlands

Rating added: Saturday, 22nd August 2020

What I call irregular F plurals are nouns that end in the /f/ sound and are irregular plurals. Words like leaf, wife, and wolf. Not all nouns that end in /f/ are irregular plurals, however. Words like gulf, turf, and clef are regular plurals. Regular plurals in English simply add an S to the ...

Comfy, Comfier, Comfiest

 flag 4 Stars by a Britlisher in Netherlands

Rating added: Thursday, 20th August 2020

Comfortable is not an easy word to say, is it? While comfortable only has 3 syllables, many students try to use 4. Comfortable is so uncomfortable a word to pronounce that in 1829 someone decided that it might be better to use only the first syllable and a -y suffix. The informal word comfy was born and what a...

A Few - Few | A Little - Little

 flag 5 Stars by a Britlisher in Netherlands

Rating added: Thursday, 20th August 2020

The two confusable quantifiers, few and little, are not as difficult to master as you might think. This microlearning lesson gives you plenty of examples of the use of few, a few, little, and a little, and plenty of practice to help you get them right. You can also watch a video explaining ho...

The Weak Was

 flag 4 Stars by a Britlisher in Netherlands

Rating added: Tuesday, 11th August 2020

In normal fast-spoken speech some words are not prominent, and we only hear the strong form of these words in certain circumstances. The words that we normally only hear the weak form of include was, as well as the other forms of the verb to be: is, am, are, and were. The children’s rhyme, F...

Wear the Fox Hat

 flag 4 Stars by a Britlisher in Netherlands

Rating added: Friday, 7th August 2020

A lack of understanding of the English that sounds rude can get you into difficulties, as Tatiana and her new husband discovered when she misheard his advice and went off for a day trip to Worcester in the wrong attire. This lesson will help you get to grips with the F word and help you to avoid similar misunderstandings. English h...
