We are studying these days how to introduce people in English and how to give personal information. You are going to meet Magda Gorzynski who comes from Poland and is a student in London. Click on her image , listen to her and do the comprehension tasks.
I think you will also enjoy this video, which contains a selection of scenes from different series showing how people can introduce themselves and each other in English. Write down the different expressions they use.
This is the first post about phonetics, which I intend to do throughout the year. If we learn the phonetic symbols and their sound, it will help us to improve our pronunciation in English.
I'm sure you must have wondered what those strange symbols that appear next to words in the dictionary are. They represent sounds, 44 different characters to represent them all. However, there are only 26 letters in the English alphabet. It may seem a bit challenging, but it is very important to become familiar with them. Watch the following video about the sounds of English. Click on the link below and wait for the video to upload.
