BBC News Review: Trump vs Clinton: first US presidential TV debate

source: BBC Learning English     2016年9月27日
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have taken part in the first of several US presidential TV debates. Join Neil and Rob to discover the language the world's media is using to talk about this story.
For more details, visit our website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/...

The story
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have clashed over their policies and their characters in the first televised debate of the US Presidential campaign. The broadcast covered a range of issues including the economy, race relations and security.
Nick Bryant - BBC News
America's never seen a reality show like this. A former First Lady head-to-head with a Manhattan property tycoon and certainly not a presidential debate that was so aggressive and so personal.
It quickly became fight night with Hillary Clinton attacking Donald Trump for failing to release his tax returns and for stiffing people that he did business with. Donald Trump rebuked her over her use of a private email server and for supporting trade deals that exported jobs abroad.

How To Learn English Grammar

What do you think of when you hear the word 'grammar'? Does it make you think of complicated textbooks, difficult exercises and boring lessons? For many English learners, the answer is 'yes'. Some English learners even tell me "I don't need grammar," or "I don't want to study grammar." In this lesson, you're going to see first of all what grammar really is and why you need it. Then, I'll share some advice to make it easier for you to learn and use English grammar.

1. What is grammar, and why do you need it?
Grammar is how you organise words into a sentence. Every time you put two or more words together, you are using grammar. Every time you listen to someone speak, your brain uses grammar to understand the meaning. From these examples, I hope you can see that grammar is not something abstract or complicated. We all use grammar, all day, every day, every time we speak to someone. There's no way to learn a language without thinking about grammar.

2. Learning grammar: form vs. function
To use a grammar point (for example, the present simple verb tense), what do you need to know? In general, to use any grammar correctly, you need to know two things:
• The form: how to use the words in a sentence
• The function: what meaning(s) the grammar expresses

For example, to form the present simple, you need to know several things:
• How to make positive sentences for different persons (I, you, he, we, etc.)
• When to add 's' or 'es' to the verb
• How to make negative sentences
• How to make questions

However, forming the grammar doesn't tell you how to use it. You also need to think about the function of a grammar point: what meanings can it express? The present simple can be used to express many different meanings, including regular actions, facts, or future events on a timetable.

3. Learning grammar: theory vs. practice
When studying grammar, you also need a balance between theory and practice. You need to understand the rules, but you also need to spend time practising them and using them.
For example, studying rules, reading about grammar, or doing simple exercises are theoretical.

Making your own sentences using a grammar point, doing more complicated exercises, or using a grammar point in a conversation or written English are practical.

4. Learning grammar: the full picture
Now we can see the full picture: you need to understand the form and the function of a grammar point in theory, and you also need to practise both, by doing exercises, making your own sentences, speaking and so on.
This might seem simple, but the reason why many English learners find grammar difficult is that they focus too much on one area, and not enough on others.

5. Practical advice
Finally, let's look at some simple, practical suggestions you can use when studying grammar:
• Always try to find real-life examples of what you are studying. Don't just read notes in a grammar book—the practical side of grammar is very important.
• Remember: understanding a grammar point and being able to use it are separate things. Just because you understand some grammar rules and can do some simple exercises, this doesn't mean you 'know' the grammar point.
• Try to make your grammar study as practical as possible. Writing your own sentence is better than reading a sentence which someone else wrote. Using grammar in conversation is better than doing an exercise in a textbook, and so on.
• If you have difficulties with a grammar point, think about your mistakes. Are you making mistakes with the form, with the function, or with both? This can help you to study more effectively and correct your mistakes.
• When you study grammar, don't stop thinking about it when you close the textbook or leave the classroom. You don't learn grammar so that you can do exercises in a book, do you? I hope not—you should learn grammar so that you can use it in real life. That means you also need to think about it in real life, when you're speaking or writing in English.

0:07 In this lesson we will see different ways to talk about a movie.
0:16 I wish I were a Jack Sparrow’s crew member.
0:20 A crew member?! I’d like to be Jack Sparrow himself!
0:25 Johnny Depp fits into the character so well.
0:29 He does, right? Gosh, he’s such a versatile actor!
0:33 I’m longing for the next ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’.
0:37 Which part is your favorite?
0:40 I can’t really tell. I like all of them very much.
0:45 ‘The Curse of the Black Pearl’ is my favorite, by far!
0:55 I watched ‘Breaking Dawn Part 2’ yesterday.
0:58 I watched it, too! Isn’t it a great movie?
1:02 What?! No way!! It was a complete waste of my time!
1:08 Oh, come on. How can you say that?
1:10 I’m so pissed at Kristen Stewart. She ruined everything!
1:15 Now, that’s a serious allegation. Everybody likes her.
1:20 Sure. Everybody but me! She may be beautiful but she’s not a good actress.
1:25 I think she’s perfect for the role.
1:33 Hey Lynn, how about a movie on Sunday?
1:36 Yeah! I want to see that 3D horror movie.
1:40 ‘Silent Hill’?
1:42 That’s it. I’ve watched the previous parts. Now I just can’t wait to watch the last one.
1:48 Well, I’m not a fan of horror. But I like 3D movies. Don’t you prefer to see ‘The Hobbit’?
1:53 Horror in 3D is much better. It’ll be a blast! Come on, say yes!
1:59 Alright then! Deal. I’ll pick you up at 7.
2:04 I’ll be ready!
2:11 Okay, now, that is a scary movie!
2:14 What did you expect? It’s a horror movie. It’s supposed to be scary.
2:19 Right, but this one is too good! It felt so real.
2:24 Real?! It’s called ‘Paranormal Activity’, Lynn. That stuff just doesn’t exist.
2:30 Well..weren’t you watching?! How do you explain the door being closed when there was nobody in the room?
2:37 Or the kid being attacked by something we couldn’t see?
2:41 Lynn, please, it’s a movie! Stuff like that doesn’t happen in real life.
2:46 All I know is that I’m sleeping with my lights on!
2:50 You make me laugh!!
2:56 I’m longing for the next ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’.
3:05 I like all of them very much.
