Learn all about the British political system & elections

source: Learn English with Gill (engVid)     2017年6月2日
When I made this video in early 2017, I thought that the next UK General Election would not happen until 2020 -- how wrong I was! So here is the video, just a few days ahead of a surprise General Election in June 2017. In this lesson I will explain a little about how the UK political system works, and introduce you to some of the vocabulary. You'll learn about the major parties, local councils, constituencies, and more. So, welcome to the unpredictable world of UK politics! This is a great lesson to help you understand the news, even if you don't live in the UK. Listening to British news is a great way to practise your English, and understanding what they are talking about will really help! Don't forget to do the quiz afterwards, to test your knowledge, at https://www.engvid.com/uk-politics-el...

Hello, I'm Mariam. Today's story is a fairy tale about a young woman whose identity is put to the test using just a little green pea. Yep, this is the story of The Princess and the Pea.

Our story begins a long time ago – there's a handsome prince who desperately wants to marry a princess. He travels the world to find one and there are plenty available – but he loses sleep over how genuine they really are.

So there he is, back at home, in his castle, feeling lonely and worried about the situation. That night, there's a big storm – thunder, lightning and torrential rain but the prince sleeps through it. He doesn't hear someone knocking at the door. But his mother, the Queen, does and she goes to see who it is.

She opens the door and finds a young woman, soaking wet and wind-blown. "Who are you?" she asks. "I'm a princess and I need a place to sleep," the princess said. "Hmmm," the Queen thinks, "are you really?" She lets her in and then rushes up to one of the spare bedrooms – the castle can sleep hundreds so there are plenty to choose from! She takes all the covers and sheets off the bed and places just one green pea at the bottom. Then the Queen gets twenty mattresses and piles them up on top of the pea. The King gives her a hand because they are rather heavy. Despite all the noise, the prince is sleeping like a baby and has no idea what they're up to.

Strange! What is the Queen up to? Well, join me again in part two to find out. I'll see you then. Bye for now.

Asking Questions and giving answers are the basics of great English conversation - or conversation in any language!
But are you asking questions correctly, in English?
Many of my students can get their message across, even without the correct word order and intonation… But it makes for a bumpy, awkward conversation!
In this lesson, I'm going to help you improve the STRUCTURE of your questions, so they flow smoothly, clearly and automatically!
And you can start enjoying English conversations!

The good news is that English questions are fairly consistent and follow a clear structure. There are four main parts that you need to keep in mind.
1. Question word (who/what/where/when/how/why) - question phrase (how long, how often)
2. Auxiliary (or helping) verb (be/do/have … also modal auxiliary verbs = can/should/may/will)
3. Subject (I/you/we/they/he/she/it)
4. Main verb (eg: play, eat, buy etc)
