How to have a conversation about RELIGION in English

source: JamesESL English Lessons     2016年7月18日
Religion and beliefs are an important part of our lives, but talking about them can be difficult. If you're not careful, you might offend someone or even get into trouble. In this video, I'll teach you how to discuss religion politely so you can have respectful conversations in English and learn about other cultures. You'll learn vocabulary related to major religions and beliefs so you can discuss popular faiths intelligently. Most importantly, I'll teach you how to use open-ended questions that will help you develop conversations with people who have different beliefs. I'll talk about Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, and others while discussing how people can identify as being religious, spiritual, orthodox, or non-practicing. I'll also explain the difference between of atheists and agnostics. The world is full of many cultures and beliefs. We all have so much to learn from each other, so take your English conversations to the next level by learning to discuss religion.

English Suffixes | Learn English Vocabulary

source: Crown Academy of English     2014年11月2日
A suffix is a specific group of letters at the end of a word. It often indicates part of the meaning of the whole word. Knowing the most common suffixes will help you increase your English vocabulary.
There are 2 types of English suffix:
1) Inflectional suffixes are grammatical suffixes. They change the form of a word (example making a plural from a singular) but the basic meaning of the word does not change.
2) Derivational suffixes transform a word from one type of word (part of speech) to another, example from a verb to a noun. Derivational suffixes change the basic meaning of the word. I show you the most common ones in this video.

I advise you to use a good dictionary to check the meaning of all new vocabulary and to see the full list of all the English suffixes.
The accent in this video lesson is a British English accent.
