October Week One
This week was the beginning of the new school year. Time to start improving your English! This week for homework, I recommend you check out some of the general resources I recommend. Some are for learners and some are original version. Try to find some websites that you enjoy so that you can continue your work throughout the year.
There are plenty of websites out there both for learners and in original version that you can use to practice listening. Some that I recommend are:
Of course you could read a book (there are many in the office), an e-book (I have some on my computer if you would like) or magazine, but if you prefer to read online, why not try...
Every week I will give you a prompt to write about. This week is to please write about your goals for English and how you plan to accomplish them throughout the year! Remember, I am always happy to correct your work. You can bring it to class or send it to me electronically via email.
Grammar, Vocabulary and Pronunciation
In class we will work primarily on speaking, but it's a good idea to review some grammar from time to try. Check out Road to Grammar, Grammar Quizzes, English Zone, Ego4U, Speak Speak.
For pronunciation, try BBC Pronunciation, Ship or Sheep, English Online, Pronunciation Exercises, English Central
And of course you'll need to study vocabulary. Try to review the vocabulary we generate in class, but there are also pages like British Council, IES(Easy, Medium, Difficult) which may help you.
Apps for your phone or tablet
I bet most of you have smartphones, right? This is a great tool to keep practicing English wherever you are! Some useful apps are Voxy, Speaking Pal, MyWordBook, Hello Hello, and EnglishGrammarInUse,
So, see if you can find any resources that are helpful for you, and don't forget that if you have any questions, comments, or work to correct, I am happy to help you out!
