READING COMPREHENSION.

READING COMPREHENSION.

Autor: Jimena González Sanz.

 

Simply put, reading comprehension is the act of understanding what you are reading. While the definition can be simply stated, the act is not simple to teach, learn or practice. Reading comprehension is an intentional, active process that occurs before, during and after a person reads a particular piece of writing.

What is the reading process? What do we do during the reading process? The following ideas can sum up the main things that happen on each stage.

The reading process has three stages: The initial stage, prereading or before reading, then the second one that happens while reading and the third and last one is the post reading or exploring and extending your reading.

PHRASAL VERBS

PHRASAL VERBS.

Autor: Jimena González Sanz.

 

Hi everyone! Welcome back to our English space where you can find interesting websites and ideas to improve your learning English learning. Today we are going to tackle a complex topic: phrasal verbs.

A phrasal verb is a phrase that consists of a verb with a preposition or an adverb, or both. In many cases the meaning of the phrasal verb cannot be deduced from its separate elements. In addition, many phrasal verbs are polysemous i.e., they have more than one meaning. There are also difficulties with the grammar of phrasal verbs, particularly with the position of the particles, in that some phrasal verbs are ‘separable’ (the particle can be moved), while some are ‘inseparable.’ Quite apart from all this, there are literally thousands of them

MUSIC AND LISTENING SKILLS

MUSIC AND LISTENING SKILLS.

Autor: Jimena González Sanz.

 

Hi everyone! Welcome one more time to our English section where you can find interesting websites and ideas to improve your learning of English as a second language.

I would like to introduce you a website called TUNE INTO ENGLISH. If you are keen on music and English this is the place you to be.

Songs are a great way to practice both listening and – if you sing along – pronunciation. This fun website lets you test your skills.

As it is stated in their website using songs is meaningful because songs are part of our life. Most of us are interested in songs an so it can be highly motivating and of course we must point out they are memorable. This is because when listening to songs we are reinforcing active listening and consolidating language, grammar and pronunciation as well. Songs are easier to remember that a long list of vocabulary and singing a song lifts your spirit and makes you feel in a good mood too.

EL BOLA

EL BOLA.

Autora: Jimena Gonzalez Sanz

La película que hoy recomendará trata sobre un tema que cada día se hace más visible: la violencia. En este caso la violencia infantil.

Cuando uno se enfrenta a la violencia infantil puede presuponer diversas situaciones. La violencia entre iguales y la de adultos hacia los niños. Y aunque ambas son igual de recriminables, el hecho de que sean los adultos los que ejercen la violencia y que encima sean aquellos que se suponen deben de velar por su bienestar, como es la familia, te hace plantearte cómo podemos proteger y protegernos de estas situaciones que desafortunadamente se siguen perpetuando en el tiempo.

CADENA DE FAVORES

CADENA DE FAVORES.

Autora: Jimena Gonzalez Sanz

Bienvenidos una vez más al espacio sala cultura de nuestra revista digital. La propuesta de hoy es ya un clásico del cine familiar que aunque recomendada para todos los públicos debería plantearse para mayores de doce: Cadena de favores.

Cadena de favores es una película estadounidense de 2000 dirigida por Mimi Leder (directora de películas bastante comerciales como El pacificador , junto a Steven Spielberg, o Deep Impact una película sobre desastres naturales.)

Protagonizada por Hayley Joe Osment (el niño del Sexto sentido), Kevin Spacey (American beauty, Seven , L.A. Conficential y la serie House of cards), Helen Hunt (Twister, Mejor imposible) y Jon Bon Jovi, el reparto es sin duda acertado .

BIZZARRE ENGLISH

BIZZARRE ENGLISH.

Autor: Jimena González Sanz.

 

Hi everyone and welcome back to our English section. Hope all of you are ok and keep a high spirit these days. Today we are going to continue digging in the most bizzarre facts about English history you wouldn’t want to miss…

It is a fact we live in a capitalist society and one of the most representatives of this lifestyle is the USA. They have either bought or plundered any unimaginable treasures worldwide and England has suffered it too.

The City of London sold the London Bridge in 1831 because it was not strong enough to support the traffic flow in 1967. The bridge was purchased by Robert P. McCulloch and moved to Arizona, USA.The London Bridge in 1831 was built by John Rennie and his son across the Thames. In 1967, the bridge was sold and demolished, and then shipped to Arizona. The bridge completed the reassembly of Lake Havasu in 1971, and McCulloch received a promise from the US government free of charge and promised to develop it. It took nearly a year to dismantle the bridge, transport it to the Port of Long Beach, and then transport it by land to the lake. It took about three years to assemble and rebuild.
