Coffee break exercises

coffee_cupI’m tired of listening to people complaining about lack of time for studying languages. It’s nothing extraordinary. Everyone has the same problem nowadays. If you want to change it start from a single, short step and use your coffee break (for example) for some activities which will move you forward a bit. The aim of this article is just to give you some hints how you can spend short breaks, still developing your language skills. Here is the short lists of activities you can do Continue reading “Coffee break exercises” »

Immigrants – vocabulary exercises

Editorial note:
Before you unleash the wave of criticism and unfavourable comments please, be informed that the lesson presented below was designed by me last year, in August, just after an attack in a train in France. This event triggered some immigrants-oriented discussions with one of my students and was meant solely to practise useful vocabulary. It does not promote any racism, nor political affiliation or social movements. It is to facilitate the students with useful expressions while discussing pressing social problems or recent events (the actual beliefs or opinions are not important here). That is why you will find references to France and its immigration policy. On the other side, it shows the good examples from the same country, even from the history of Poland, which unlike in the past it is rather homogeneous country now. So leave your political correctness and social sensitiveness aside and learn some new vocabulary because this site is about a language itself, not about politics. I hope that English teachers will immidiadetely get it and appreciate it, using the lesson as it is, or after their own modifications.

Whenever you want to show your proficiency in writing or speaking you should demonstrate that you are capable of writing longer, more complex sentences. It is not possible without a proper conjunction though. Putting two ideas from seperate single sentences into one sentence requires from writers/speakers to use conjunctions. Today, I will present the basic set of conjunctions to use to make logical connection between the ideas you want to sell. This basic set, often described as a mnemonic FAN BOYS, Continue reading “Conjunctions – introduction to compound and complex sentences” »
