Lesson 3 09/04/2013

Tips

Good night se usa como fórmula de despedida. Si se quiere decir buenas noches, se dice good evening: Buenas noches, amigos míos. Good evening, my friends (aunque sean las 23:00 hs.).

En inglés británico se utiliza Excuse me para interrumpir a alguien y se emplea Sorry para pedir disculpas por algo. En inglés americano se prefiere utilizar Excuse me en lugar de Sorry.

En inglés, puedes expresar el apellido de la familia de dos modos: a) con el vocablo family (the Murphy family) y b) pluralizando el apellido (the Murphys). Por el contrario, en castellano se pluraliza el artículo y no el apellido (los Geoghegan).

Does the UK have a National Day?

National Days are not celebrated in Britain in the same way as they are in a number of other countries. Only St Patrick’s Day in Northern Ireland (and the republic of Ireland) and St Andrew’s Day in Scotland (from 2007) are taken as an official holiday. All the other national days are normal working days.

Lesson 2 16/04/2013

Afternoon Tea and High Tea in England

Tetera en inglés

AfternoonTea (The traditional 4 o’clock tea)

This is a small meal, not a drink. Traditionally it consists of tea (or coffee) served with either of the following:

Freshly baked scones served with cream and jam (Known as a cream tea)

Afternoon tea sandwiches – thinly sliced cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off.

Afternoon tea is not common these days because most adults go out to work. However, you can still have Afternoon tea at the many tea rooms around England.

Afternoon tea became popular about one hundred and fifty years ago, when rich ladies invited their friends to their houses for an afternoon cup of tea. They started offering their visitors sandwiches and cakes too. Soon everyone was enjoying Afternoon tea.

High Tea (The traditional 6 o’clock tea)

The British working population did not have Afternoon Tea. They had a meal about midday, and a meal after work, between five and seven o’clock. This meal was called ‘high tea’ or just ‘tea’.

(Today, most people refer to the evening meal as dinner or supper.)

Traditionally eaten early evening, High tea was a substantial meal that combined delicious sweet foods, such as scones, cakes, buns or tea breads, with tempting savouries, such as cheese on toast, toasted crumpets, cold meats and pickles or poached eggs on toast. This meal is now often replaced with a supper due to people eating their main meal in the evenings rather than at midday.

Time

British people place considerable value on punctuality. If you agree to meet friends at three o’clock, you can bet that they’ll be there just after three. Since Britons are so time conscious, the pace of life may seem very rushed. In Britain, people make great effort to arrive on time. It is often considered impolite to arrive even a few minutes late. If you are unable to keep an appointment, it is expected that you call the person you are meeting. Some general tips follow.

You should arrive:

* At the exact time specified – for dinner, lunch, or appointments with professors, doctors, and other professionals.

* Any time during the hours specified for teas, receptions, and cocktail parties.

* A few minutes early: for public meetings, plays, concerts, movies, sporting events, classes, church services, and weddings.

If you are invited to someone’s house for dinner at half past seven, they will expect you to be there on the dot. An invitation might state “7.30 for 8”, in which case you should arrive no later than 7.50. However, if an invitation says “sharp”, you must arrive in plenty of time.

Lesson 9 31/05/2013

Advices

Here are some tips which might be very useful for you:

1. Decide that you will speak English everyday.

2. Talk to your family members and friends. Also try to speak a few sentences to other people in your office, in the market or the offices you visit.

3. Try to speak a few sentences in front of a morror. Speak with confidence.

4. Always say to yourself: I can speak good English.

5. Practice good sentence-making with the help of a grammar book.

6. Join a regular class in an institute, if n
eeded.

7. Visit ImproveEnglishOnline.com frequently.

8.Live and work in a completely English-speaking environment.

9.Do some kind of sports, hobbies, or other activities with a group of English speakers.

10.Talk one-on-one with an English-speaking tutor a few times a week.

11.Do a language exchange with an English speaker, in person or over Skype.

12.Watch lots of hours of movies, TV shows, and videos in English, with English captions.

13.Watch movies, TV, and videos with no subtitles.

14.Watch movies, TV, and videos with subtitles in your own language.

15.Listen to English podcasts on a topic that’s interesting to you (but not on the topic of learning English).

16.Listen to English radio shows.

17.Listen to audio English lessons.

 

 Lesson 10 31/05/2013

Other listening tips

Interacting is better than passive listening. In other words, it’s better to talk with someone than just to listen to a TV show, radio program, or podcast. Being in a conversation forces you to listen more carefully.

The next thing to watch out for is to make sure that you listen to a variety of different kinds of speech. I know some people who listen to radio news shows every day but don’t feel like they’re improving. That’s because news English is one specialized form of speaking. Only news broadcasters speak that way. So you can’t expect to understand everyday conversation if you only listen to the news.

Captions can help if they’re in English. If you watch a movie, video, or TV show with English subtitles, it can help you match the written words to their spoken pronunciation. But subtitles in your native language are dangerous. They do help you to understand what’s going on, but they also keep your brain locked into “native language mode”. Try to use native-language subtitles as little as possible.

 

Lesson 11 31/05/2013

If you would like something similar to a weekly plan

look at the following idea:

MONDAY:
During your commute to work, listen to English podcasts that you find interesting OR read a magazine, novel or anything in English. (Obviously NOT during your commute if you are driving!)

TUESDAY:
Try to find an intercambio (a language exchange). Get together for some conversation over a coffee or a beer for an hour. You could do an hour of English and an hour of your native language to help them learn.

Meetup.com is a great resource for finding groups of people with similar interests. Or just look in the classifieds of a newspaper or online.

WEDNESDAY:
Sign up for a free course from livemocha.com. They have 4 courses that can help you improve all aspects of your English.

As you are a higher level they may be too basic for you but try the fourth course and see if it is appropriate.

THURSDAY:
Watch a movie in English or watch a TV episode in English. If this is too hard, which it with English subtitles as well.

If you have satellite TV, change all movies to the original version and watch them in English.

FRIDAY:
Review some grammar, phrasal verbs or idioms to help express yourself more naturally. Use a grammar text book or websites from the internet.

Try to choose phrasal verbs or idioms that are useful to you so that you will use them frequently.

SATURDAY:
Go out and see a movie in original version, then have another intercambio with a native speaker.

SUNDAY:
Relax, but try to think in English. 🙂

These are just some of many ideas to help you improve your English.
