FLUENTU: THE BEST WAY TO LEARN ENGLISH

08 abril 2020 01

Autora: Verónica Amaro Bermejo

FluentU is an app available on Android and iOS, it uses genuine video content from the internet to create their video based learning.

Before you can sing karaoke, though, you will need to learn the lyrics and practice. Break down the song and learn the lyrics in an exciting way with FluentU.

Typically for each video there’s optional subtitles added below and a quiz for the new vocabulary that you learn in the video. These words and phrases are then saved as flashcards on spaced repetition.

There’s a good range of languages: Spanish, Chinese, French, English, Japanese, German, Italian, Korean, and Russian.

Here’s how it works. FluentU takes real-world videos, like music videos, movie trailers, news and inspiring talks, and turns them into personalized language learning lessons.

Search through FluentU’s music videos to find a song you enjoy at your level, and use its  “learn mode” to understand the lyrics and learn new words.

Then, quiz yourself with the game Lyrics Training, where you fill in the missing words from the lyrics as the song plays. Next, sing along with the singer several times, and then finally you’re ready for the ultimate test (and perhaps the most fun part): singing karaoke!

What I noticed and really liked is that the videos are ordered in a logical order too for your ability.

FluentU is a fun and natural way to learn languages without feeling like you’re studying too hard.

TRADITIONAL BRITISH DISHES YOU NEED TO TRY.

TRADITIONAL BRITISH DISHES YOU NEED TO TRY.

Shepherd’s Pie

 Shepherd’s Pie is primarily made from minced lamb and potatoes. Many families will make this dish using beef, but then it should actually be referred to as Cottage Pie, as shepherds only herd sheep (duh). 

Most Brits would agree that Shepherd’s Pie is best eaten at home with your family and, in fact, the dish is not often served in restaurants.

 Beef Wellington

Beef Wellington is a fillet of steak coated in patê and then rolled in pastry. Although the dish shares its name with the famous Duke of Wellington, it actually shares no link with the British nobility. In reality, it is thought that Beef Wellington was based around the French dish filet de bœuf en croûte (fillet of beef in pastry).

Beef Wellington is served in posh pubs and restaurants up and down the country.

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.

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
