Effective expressions to express your personality

source: English Jade - Learn English (engVid)   2016年5月14日
In this lesson, I will teach you verbs, expressions, and idioms you can use to bring out your unique personality and communication style. For example, there is a lot more you can say other than "I think that..." Using other expressions such as "it looks as if", "it sounds like", "I sense that", or "I feel that" makes your language richer and helps you build relationships with others. Watch this video to discover more about your own personal style and how you can express yourself more like a native speaker. This video goes into the theory of NLP (neuro-linguistic programming). If you want to go even further with the idea of representational systems within NLP, you can then use your knowledge of language and behaviour to build stronger relationships and to influence people. For example, if you observe that your friend is a strongly visual person, you can adapt your language and the expressions you use to be more visual. This will help the two of you connect and interact better. Test your knowledge afterwards by doing the quiz athttp://www.engvid.com/expressions-idi...

5 uses of 'dead' - The Hound of the Baskervilles

source: BBC Learning English   2016年10月13日
The English word dead has many meanings and uses. In this session, we bring you BBC Learning English's own version of Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles - and we've found many different ways to use the word dead in it.
You can watch part 2 of this story here http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/...

Hello, I'm Darren. I'm sure you've heard of Sherlock Holmes - Britain’s most famous sleuth. Well I'm going to tell you about The Hound of the Baskervilles - perhaps one of his strangest cases.

One day Holmes and Dr Watson are visited in London by Dr Mortimer, whose friend, Sir Charles Baskerville, has been found dead in mysterious circumstances.

Close to his body was a gigantic paw print! Mortimer is dead certain that a huge dog is responsible for the death. According to legend, an enormous black hound has haunted the Baskerville family for centuries. Intrigued, Holmes agrees to help protect the new heir to the estate – Sir Henry Baskerville - who Mortimer believes is in deadly danger. Sir Henry has been warned in a note to stay away from Baskerville Hall. And … bizarrely, two of his shoes have gone missing.

Watson is sent on ahead to Baskerville Hall. On arriving in deepest Dartmoor, Watson’s suspicions are raised by the strange behaviour of the butler and his wife. He also learns that a convict, Selden, has escaped from a nearby prison. Watson sees Barrymore, the butler, signalling to someone on the moor in the dead of night.

Watson also meets the Stapletons, a brother and sister who are neighbours. Beryl Stapleton – thinking he is actually Sir Henry - warns Watson to leave the area immediately. The plot thickens! Walking outside one night, Watson stops dead in his tracks. A bloodcurdling howl comes from the moor. The hound! Then Watson spies a strange figure standing on a hilltop.

The mystery deepens – and where has Sherlock Holmes got to? You can find out in the next part of our story – I'll see you then. Bye for now.

A good way to understand and learn the difference between English prepositions is to look at them in groups. That way you can compare and contrast them. We’re going to look at to, in and at together because they can be used to talk about place.
In this lesson, you'll learn how to:
- Use 'to' when you want to talk about movement.
- Correctly use 'in' to explain being surrounded by something.
- Find ways to use 'at' when you want to describe the opposite of movement.
- Recognize differences between 'to', 'in', and 'at'.
