How to teach reading with phonics - 9/12 - Long I Sound

source: EnglishAnyone    2011年3月20日
Lesson 9 - Long I
Learn some letter combinations that make the Long I sound.
In this lesson, you'll learn some common spellings of the long I sound. Ie and igh can make the long I sound.
Let's start with the ie combination. This combination can be very tricky. The ie combination can make long E and long I sounds. Here are three examples of the ie combination making the long I sound. (Repeat words)
Alien is an example of the ie combination making the long e sound.
Field, chief and thief are other examples.
Usually, if the ie combination is in the middle of a word, it makes the long E sound. If it is at the end of the word, then it makes the long I sound. And if the ie comes after the letter c, then it becomes ei and makes the long E sound. Ceiling, receipt, receive are three examples.
Now let's return to igh. Here are two examples. (Repeat words)
Fantastic job! We're almost finished! Continue to practice and look for these letter combinations in the words you read. In your next lesson, we'll look at the long O sound.

Have and Has - Common Errors in English

source: Twominute English     2013年8月27日
Many new English speakers often have trouble in using 'Have' and 'Has' in their daily conversations. They are used to indicate possession in present tense or as an auxiliary verb which is used to add meaning to the sentence. 'Has' is used in singular form and to denote a third person context. 'Have' is used in plural form for third person context and for both singular and plural forms in first and second person context. 'Had' is the past tense for both 'Has' and 'Have'.

0:00 Welcome to Teaching you English through two-minute lessons.
0:07 This lesson will help you learn the correct usage of ‘Have’ and ‘Has’.
0:17 Good Morning, Zoey! Today’s lesson will teach you how to use ‘Have’ and ‘Has’ correctly.
0:23 That should be an interesting lesson. Can you explain the difference?
0:27 Sure. While both ‘Have’ and ‘Has’ are used to show possession,
0:32 ‘Have’ is used for plural and ‘Has’ is used for singular when we are talking about someone else.
0:37 They are also used as auxiliary verbs to add meaning to a sentence or to complete a sentence.
0:43 Has Mark signed up for this class?
0:46 No and you are right to use ‘Has’ since you are talking about a single person in third person context.
0:52 Another example of ‘Has’ can be “She has a wonderful job”.
0:58 This is great. Let me use ‘Have’ to indicate a plural context. ‘Have your sons joined school yet?’
1:06 Yes, they have. They are in nursery!
1:09 Have’ is also used in singular form when you are talking about yourself or when you are talking to the listener i.e., first and second person.
1:19 I have a passion for reading. Is this the right use for the first person?
1:23 Awesome, Zoey! You have got the hang of it. And this was the example for the second person.
1:30 It’s so clear now. Use ‘has’ when you are talking about one person. Use ‘have’ when you are talking about many people.
1:38 Use ‘have’ for yourself and for the person you are talking to.
1:42 Perfect! Now let’s listen to some conversations.
