Hey there!

Are you busy? Yeah, I know! You have a lot of things to do and there is no time to practice your English skills, but you must agree with me that it’s really important to keep in touch with the language at any way, isn’t it? So, that’s what is happening to me right now. I’m really busy doing many things and I’m listening to the radio. It’s an international web radio in which I can listen to some songs and also some interviews. That’s my tip for you today. Take your chance to improve your listening skills having fun through this web radio. Enjoy!!!:)

Get phrasal verbs.

November 24, 2008

 

Hi there!

Today I’ll post here another very interesting video with an English class. I have to tell you I’ve learned a lot of things with these Steve’s on line English classes, and I’m sure you’ll do as well. I’d like to put a spotlight on the GET PHRASAL VERBS below, with some usage examples:

GET THE IMPRESSION = to become aware of something.

E.g.: I got the impression this blog is becoming a pleasurable habit for me. 🙂

GET ACROSS = communicate successfully; make the people understand what you’re trying to say.

E.g.: I wonder if I’m getting myself across in English to you. 😉

Hope you enjoy!

Can you read?

Hi, there!

I was laughing a lot while trying to speak some tong twisters from this site here. It’s so funny and useful to feel (and listen to) ourselves getting better in speaking English! Ok! Just have fun!!!!!

Try this tong twister below:

“Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked.
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
Where’s the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?”

And this one?

“The thirty-three thieves thought that they thrilled the throne throughout Thursday.”

Is it hard? Ahahahahahahahahah…

You’ll find much more here. Enjoy!!!!
