How To Learn English Grammar


source: Oxford Online English       2015年5月4日
See the full lesson with exercises: http://www.oxfordonlineenglish.com/vi...
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.

10 Teenage Secrets Teens Never Tell You - English Conversation Lesson - ...


source: Learn English with Let's Talk     2018年2月11日
It's always been tough to be a teenager. For today's teens, it's even tougher. Social media has teens living their lives out online for everyone to see -- friends and family as well as their enemies and bullies. All too often, when problems arise, teens hold everything inside instead of reaching out for help. They think no one could possibly understand what they are going through. They feel alone, isolated and sometimes abandoned. They feel like they have no one they can talk to when they regret making the wrong decision or do the wrong thing. In this English lesson, Ceema brings you some of the teenage secrets that teens would never tell you. This English lesson would help you practice English listening and expand your vocabulary to talk about teenage secrets in English conversations. This spoken English lesson could prove as a great conversation starter.

1. Unauthorized usage of vehicles.
They drive Dad’s motorbike or car without his approval. When they meet with a minor accident and the vehicle gets damaged, They just say "I found it lying like that in a parking lot".

2. Hiding real ambitions
There’s so much pressure on the teenagers to become engineers or doctors. They want to become an air-hostess or an athlete but find it tough to discuss it with my parents.

3. Watching porn films
Teenagers often watch porn films at their friends’ places or flip through adult
magazines when their parents are not home. A lot of porn is also available on the Internet and some of the teenagers download short clips onto their mobiles.

4. Not revealing fights
sometimes teenagers fight with their friends, but there’s a mutual understanding that they won’t let their parents know. And, usually, they sort out the differences themselves.

5. Practicing bad hygiene
To avoid bathing during the winter. They just go into the bathroom, wet their feet, face and hair, spray some deodorant and exclaim how cold the water was!

6. Keeping financial secrets
Some of the teenagers have taken up part-time jobs to meet their expenses, but they don’t tell their parents about it so that their pocket money is not reduced.

7. Memorizing phone numbers
They memorize the phone numbers of their friends whom their parents do not approve of so that their names don’t blink on their mobile phone.

8. Drug / Alcohol. Sexual abuse
Some of them get stuck with friends from whom they learn to smoke, drink, splurge, and other vices. They get entangled with a group and become addicted to the abuses.

9. Damaging property
while playing football or any other indoor games with their siblings, they break things, for example, a flowerpot. They throw the broken pieces into a vacant, adjacent plot
without my parents knowing.

10. Cheating on studies
Homework is often a team effort. They divide homework between friends so it becomes easier to finish it on time. At times, they also convince one of the studious fellows of their class to part with his homework and then copy it.

4 things you need to know to understand Americans - English pronunciation...

*Become fluent in real American English, with my free pronunciation & comprehension exercises: https://christinarebuffet.com/america...

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:
1. What do you” sounds like /whuhduhya/or /whutcha/
2. We don’t always use auxiliary verbs. We say things like "You have a problem?" for "Do you have a problem?" and "They leaving tomorrow?" for Are they leaving tomorrow?"
3. Present perfect simple is often optional. In American English we often just use the past simple, as in “Did you buy the house yet?” instead of “Have you bought the house yet?”
4. /t/ sounds like /d/...or disappears: "This little city’s pretty!" doesn't sound like Lit-tle. Ci-ty. Pre-tty. It sounds like /luhdduhl/, /sihddee/, and /pruhdee/. But in words like "twenty", the /t/ sound disappears, as in /twuhnny/
