Brainstorm: Engelska – Kooperativt Lärande. Strukturen Brainstorm lämpar dig väldigt bra för att arbeta med ordklasser och språk. Vi använde den för att träna på engelska verb. Eleverna var indelade i grupper om 3-4. De fick en penna per grupp och en hög med post-its. De fick sedan 3 minuter på sig att komma på så många engelska verb som möjligt. En elev började och skickade sedan pennan till nästa. När tiden var slut fick varje grupp välja ett verb de kommit på och visa det med hjälp av kroppsspråk, som charader. Tillsammans hittade vi 26 olika verb, t.ex. fly, jump, spin, wave, orbit och dance. Nu var det dags att skriva meningar med verben. För att ytterligare träna på verben tillsammans kör vi Berättaren då och då med instruktionen att de ska säga till varandra: I want you to…. och ett verb som kompisen sedan ska utföra.

Övningen var lustfylld och språkrikt med mycket samtal och diskussioner. Struktur: Brainstorm I "Allmänt" Kooperativt i förskoleklass: Engelska Gästinlägg av medlem i kooperativt.com fb-grupp. Collective Nouns Sheet 1. Nouns name people, places, or things.

14 Expressions with Crazy Origins that You Would Never Have Guessed

However, some English expressions are so crazy and unusual that it is impossible to guess where on earth it originated from — unless you know the history. In case you didn’t know, historical events, legends, important figures, religion, and even advertisements form the basis of many expressions used today. Here are the origins of some of the most interesting idioms! Bite the bullet. The Idiom Connection.

Are you laughing your socks off?!

This is of course really important but sometimes it means we miss out on other things that learning languages offers us. As a teaching assistant of English, I give conversation classes to a wide variety of students in which we look at themes and situations which are relevant to everyday life. Most recently, we have been looking at two topics which I think are a lot of fun and are linked: Idioms in English and British humour.

English is a language rich with phrases that are both weird and wonderful and that people use in everyday speech.

SVOMPT - word order in English

If students learn to follow this rule, their English will improve dramatically, and they will be understood. Once a student knows some words and follows the SVOMPT rule, we can say that he/she can speak English. I love Darren Crown’s explanation of the origin of the SVOMPT word order. In his humorous book “Angličtina na rovinu” he writes that English was first used by a primitive tribe whose members did not want to use their brain too much and thus they created a word order which is always the same – Subject, Verb, Object, adverbs of Manner, adverbs of Place and adverbs of Time.

So let´s stop looking for some complicated explanations and let´s think like the primitive barbarians and stick with the SVOMPT word order.
