ESL Podcast Blog Welcome to ESL Podcast Blog So Go Ahead and Sue Me, Taylor Swift I can’t say that I have never, never, never listened to a song by Taylor Swift, but I can say that I’m not exactly (I’m not really) a fan of her music. But if you’re not careful, Swift may just decide to sue you (take you to court and demand money from you for something you did wrong). What phrases are we talking about here? The reason behind Swift’s trademarking of these phrases is not just meglomania (the desire to dominate everyone around you, to have great power). You might be wondering about whether we here at ESL Podcast have trademarked anything. ~Jeff Image credit: “Swift performs in St. Podcasts This Week (March 2, 2015) Get the full benefits of ESL Podcast by getting the Learning Guide.

Listen A Minute: Easier English Listening and Activities Learning English vocabulary and grammar with free online English language tests, exercises and quizes e-Books from Bill Zimmerman Words I Wish Someone Had Saidto Me As a Kid I wrote this book of encouraging words to help young people as they make their way in the world. Every girl and boy needs to hear such words. I know I did. Growing up, I tried hard to imagine the things he would have said to guide me if he were around. Writing the letter helped me that day and I continued to write more letters in the voice of a father talking to a child. If you’re a young person reading this book, think of each page as a personal letter of caring words from me to you, like the ones an older friend or relative might say to you.

Use six different tenses in English | Games to learn English Students often learn just one piece of grammar in a lesson. Most of them master that day’s subject and move on to the next. But, when the time for revision comes, they often don’t remember what they’ve learnt. For example, two weeks ago my class encountered an exercise in which several tenses were revised. First, they demanded that I re-explain the grammar and then they seemed really confused about what form they should use. That was why I decided to stop there and prepare several exercises and a clear mind map. The second infographic is much more detailed. Now that your students understand the grammar, they have to use it as soon as possible. If you cannot do the exercise online, you can try the following paper version of the quiz. six tenses worksheet You can find more exercises to practise different tenses at Five Tenses and Five Tenses additional exercises.
