Do your Homework!
Make your English teacher happy!
Welcome back to the new school year and a big welcome to all the new students this year!
This week we talked about how to study English. Your main task for this week is to familiarize yourself with the general resources that I include below and find some that you like. Bookmark them so that you can revisit them throughout the year!
There are plenty of websites out there both for learners and in original version that you can use to practice listening. The ones that I recommend (by section) are:
Online listening activities adapted for learners:
Podcasts for learners:
Learning with music:
Learning with movies:
Original Version Resources:
Just as is the case of listening, there are many resources that you can revisit throughout the year. Try both the adapted reading sites as well as the ones in original version!
Adapted reading for learners:culture, TV and film, music, cooking,science, the possibilities are endless! If you need help finding websites about your interest, please let me know!
This week's writing assignment is to make a study plan for the year! What are your objectives? What resources will you use to achieve them? What skills do you need to improve on? If you are a new student, please write about your past experiences with English and what you would like to change and improve.
I do recommend that you study a bit of grammar at home. Even the most advanced students could use a review! So please take a look at some of these resources to study grammar:
This year I suggest you study vocabulary with theQuizlet sets that I have prepared, so take a look and consider downloading the app onto your phone or tablet, so if you are interested, please register online. Other resources are:
Last, but certainly not least, there are websites that you can use to practice pronunciation:
Have a good week!
