Conversation

Listening. Improve your language skills. 33 ways to speak better English. If you’re reading this, I imagine you want to speak better English and communicate in a more confident and competent way. When we communicate effectively we are able to express our ideas and opinions, share experiences, and build relationships with others.

When we struggle to express ourselves, we feel unvalued and insecure. As human beings, we want to participate in group discussions and have an impact on the society around us. In the modern world, we communicate across borders. English is the closest thing we have to an international language. By speaking better English, people all over the world can hear our voice. But, to speak better English, you need a teacher, don’t you? Well, English teachers and English classes definitely help. What you need is to become a self-directed learner, somebody who takes responsibility for their own learning and creates their own learning programme to develop their English.

You can do the same with your English. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. In a moment. Learn English Pronunciation Online.

Those of you who’ve dropped by recently will know that I’m embarking on ‘The 12 Grammarly Days of Christmas’. Every day for twelve days, I’ll be posting on a well-known and well-loved grammar theme. Today is now the sixth day of my Christmas posting extravaganza; I’m officially half way there and I’m feeling steadily more confident I can do it! Let’s continue what I started on day five, with an old classic: prepositions of place… The prepositions at, in and on are often used in English to talk about places (physical positions) and times. These prepositions can be incredibly tricky for learners, because sometimes the choice of one over another in a particular phrase or sentence seems arbitrary.

Throw in the likes of under, beside, behind and next to and you’re setting a real challenge to lower level learners. Today I’m eschewing the format I’ve been following a little bit because I’m going straight on to a selection of activities. What do you need? 1. ELTPics courtesy of @fionamau 2. 3. Day 7 of my Grammarly Christmas: adverbs of frequency. A warm welcome back to my ‘12 Grammarly Days of Christmas’… Confused? Basically, every day for twelve days, I’ll be posting an infographic highlighting the rules that govern the ways we use a certain grammatical point, along with ideas to help those of us who get confused by said grammar point, and maybe even a few activities thrown in for good measure. Today is now the seventh day (here’s what you missed yesterday) of my Christmas posting extravaganza meaning I’m on the downward slope and can see light at the end of the tunnel!

Let’s continue with another old classic, adverbs of frequency… An adverb of frequency is exactly what it sounds like… an adverb of time. In other words, adverbs of frequency always describe how often something occurs, either in definite or indefinite terms. An adverb that describes definite frequency is one such as weekly, daily, or yearly. An adverb describing indefinite frequency doesn’t specify an exact time frame; examples are sometimes, often, and rarely. 1.
