La única manera de mejorar tu listening, y si quieres hacerlo de una manera bestial, es aprender un poco de fonética inglesa.

Y es que el español y el inglés son idiomas muy distintos en ese sentido. Dado que escribiré varios posts sobre este tema, voy a organizarlos todos en este único artículo de modo que dispongas de una lista útil y fácil de leer.

at the hairdresser's Image Credit: Pixabay I was asked a few weeks ago by a reader if I could write a post about hair, hairdressers and hairstyles. She needed to see her hairdresser and wanted to know how to explain what she wanted doing to her hair. So I thought to myself what better time to write about hair than when I’m at the hairdresser’s! As I write this post, I am at my hairdresser’s having my hair done. Me having my flashlights and roots done! I get my hair coloured and cut every five weeks and have the flashlights every ten weeks. So as my hairdresser put the gown over my clothes as protection, I told her that I was going to ask her a number of questions about hair and hairstyles. ColouringFirst of all, I asked her about all the different colouring treatments you can have. For those of us who want to cover our grey hair, we have the option of either a semi-permanent or permanent colour. WashingAfter all that colouring, it’s always a relief to have my hair thoroughly washed or shampooed. Ciao for now

Voscreen: teaching with video clips I might be a bit late to the Voscreen party as I’ve discovered this free platform a couple of months ago. I’ve been experimenting with it quite a bit and I’d like to share my 10 ideas about using it with English learners in and out of the classroom. What is Voscreen? Voscreen is a free platform (you need to sign up / log in with your Facebook account which takes 5 seconds) offering a variety of very short video clips which come from TV series, movies, songs, you name it. In each short clip, a phrase is said. As you enter the website, you select your native language, watch the clip, and then choose the accurate translation to the short phrase uttered in the clip. There are 5 levels of difficulty to choose from, as well as a number of grammar categories to browse through (Present Simple, Prepositions, Phrasal Verbs, Passive Voice etc.). Using Voscreen with students #1 Paraphrasing (levels intermediate and higher) Voscreen lends itself perfectly to practice paraphrasing. Example: #6 Why?
