Hello, my name is Mary. I'm an English student, like you. In my family is my mother and my father. I have a brother and sister. My brother is Dave and my sister ‘s name is Jenny. I go to school. I like English. My school is fun. How about you?
Hi, Mary, here again. I love my school. My mother and father take my brother and me to school by car . My school books are heavy but I like these books. At school, I study with my brother and my friends. I have a great time there !
A few weeks ago my family went to a nice house in the mountains. We love going there because it is such a nice place. I always like going for walks in the mountains. It’s cold but I have a good hat. At night we talk for hours and hours. It’s nice to not have the TV for a few days.
One of the best stories for little boys and girls is the story about three dogs. In this story, there was a father dog, a mother dog and a baby dog. The three of them lived in a house. They loved to eat food but it was too hot. A hungry little cat was walking near their house. She saw the dog’s food in their house and walked into the house to eat it. The food was very good but after eating it she got tired. The dogs saw the cat and ate her, not the food!
One really good way to make your English better is to take a little time each day to read a book, newspaper or something that is just a more difficult that your reading level reading today. This means that on one page, there are only one or two words that you don't know. If there are more than one or two words you don't know, this means the reading is too hard and your reading will slow down, so try to choose something easier. Trying to study in this way will help your reading and you will learn new words. Even if you read for just 15-20 minutes a day, you will see your English reading is getting better and you will understand more of the words you read.
Are you having difficulty in learning English? Do you know enough words to be able to read easily? One of the best ways to learn more words is to write all of the new words that you meet in a notebook. Many people find that writing down the same word over and over again is very useful in helping you remember it better. Try to write the words in new sentences each time. Think of learning English as kind of hobby, something that you do in your spare time when you get a chance. And try to bring more English into your life each day.
One of the most enjoyable stories for children is the story about the three bears. In this story there was a father bear, a mother bear and a child bear. The three of them lived together in a house. They loved to eat chicken soup and were about to start to eat, but the father was angry because it was still too hot so they went out for a walk. Just then, a little girl was walking near their house looking for some food. She saw their food in their house and walked into the house to eat it. The food was very good and after eating it she got sleepy. The clever bears saw the girl sleeping, and ate her instead of the soup!
An important way to build your English skills is to commit a little time each day to reading books and other texts just above your current reading level. So the reading should be easy. In this case, "just above" means that on an average page of text you would only have one or two words that you don't know. If there are more than one or two words you don't know on each page, the reading may be too hard and you should choose something simpler. Reading easy texts quickly will help you to improve your reading skills and meet important new words in a fun way. Even by spending just 15 minutes a day, your skills can improve a lot.
Reading is the best way to increase your English ability. The problem is that books are heavy to carry and sometimes hard to find. Where can you get reading materials when you are not close to a library? Although many students have computers, they complain that the computers are too big and heavy for daily use. Instead, they rely on things such as cell phones which allow them to find information any time and any place they want. So you can read lots of interesting texts on ER-Central and learn lots of words too. Join in the fun.
Are you having difficulty in learning English? What kind of things affect your learning, and how can you adopt good learning habits? One of the best ways to insure you can develop to an advanced level is to write new words you meet in a notebook. Many people find that writing down the same word repeatedly enables them discover new meanings and doesn’t discourage them. Try to write the words in new sentences. You should look at learning English as kind of hobby, and look for new sources of English whenever you can.
Did you know that adopting a conscious decision to commit to reading can make an important contribution to your ability to function in English? Reading is critical to your success because it provides you with the very important input necessary to be able to grow your vocabulary. You should read just above your current reading level, which means that you would only have one or two words that you don't know per page. If there is more than this, the level is too hard and you should choose something simpler. This will help you to improve your reading skills and learn essential new words in a fun way. It's also useful for improving English in new fields such as legal English. Even by spending just 15 minutes a day, your skills can improve quite a lot.
Learning a new language requires constant effort and a very enthusiastic attitude. Strange as it may seem, you should actually decrease the amount of distinct grammar you study and revise, instead doing your best to increase your motivation and the amount of reading you do each day. Try to be diligent in the way you approach your reading program, keeping a record of all the books, magazines and newspapers you read each day. You should look at learning English as an important kind of side job not something to dismiss, something that you continue to devote yourself to whenever you find you have a little extra time in your schedule.
Inspiring reading is a truly important aspect of your overall English skills development. Spending time each day buried in reading books, magazines, or newspapers can really launch your learning. That said, you also need to be aware of the linguistic burden of the level of the material that you are reading. Science has measured this level carefully. If you know fewer than 95% of the words on the page, you will not have access to fluent reading. It is presumed that any more than this will be too difficult. You should convert your grammatical and vocabulary knowledge into fluent knowledge reading at this level along with a systematic study of the small number of unknown words in the text. 95% is a very important level for your reading comprehension.
Many students of English worry about a lack of progress in their language learning. Research has shown that one effective way to enhance your English ability and to be able to differentiate yourself from other learners is to try to deliberately devote yourself to reading a considerable number of long texts on themes you enjoy on a daily basis. This can sometimes be challenging if the texts are too hard for you, but by evaluating the difficulty of texts to find ones at your fluent reading level you will find it much easier to do. Most learners have a limited vocabulary but reading can extended your knowledge and give you new insights to partial knowledge.
Current theories reveal that exposing yourself to reading is a truly important element of your overall English skills development. Amplifying your reading to include a diverse range of books, magazines, newspapers or even material on the internet can have a very enduring effect on stimulating your learning. That said, you also need to possess a framework for determining the underlying level of the material that you are reading. By virtue of not knowing more than 95% of the words on the page, you may wrestle with the vocabulary and find it difficult to facilitate fluency development.
There’s no dispute that equating study with acquisition is a fundamentally flawed proposition. Studying discrete language items can foreground knowledge but one needs to immerse oneself in a different paradigm – that of nourishing a vibrant infrastructure of knowledge to propel us towards native-like competence. Many courses and practitioners exaggerate the need for a grammatical focus. A strict implementation of this can lead to many of the items remaining distinct artifacts made separate from the dynamic coherent and cohesive language system which can only be acquired through massive contextual practice.
Many academicians have acquainted themselves with an astonishingly wide range of studies. Applied linguistics has embraced a multitude of competing approaches to understanding the field. Some researchers endorse integrative cross-curricular theories from a wide spectrum of disciplines to speculate about the unifying general principles underling the mysteries of second language acquisition. By contrast, others defer to segments of the field by adhering to, or aligning themselves with, absolutist sets of single hypotheses. The ultimate answer will be contingent on appraising both approaches as we crystalize our thinking.
Adherence to a single ideology can confound or impede our ability to decode or decipher intricate theories of human behavior. Ideas need to be incubated and allowed to mutate to allow authoritative convergent theories to emerge. All too often typical orthodoxy is predisposed to infringe on the development of generative ideas which are a prerequisite to going beyond a simple set of coarse hegemonies. Our task then, is to enshrine in future researchers a distain for the status quo which only seeks pay homage to tradition, but to envisage and orchestrate new paradigms to unhinge future progress.
Much of academia is fraught with brash hyperbole bereft of concrete notions and elemental ideas which we need to provide the cogency and clarity much needed in the field. Often there is a tendency to wrangle over claims to ubiquitous theories proposed as panaceas for the field by alluding to insipid and unfounded notions and without resorting to the burdensome task of collecting evidence. Fortunately, this type of research is victim to much vitriol and is treated with disrepute by the many who attest to avoiding flippant outlandish conceits.
Assimilating a significant number of meanings and developing the cognizance of them is only a foretaste of the vast demands of acquiring a language’s lexis. Much of neuroscience circumscribes to the notion that the acquisition of lexemes demands different machinations from the acquisition of single words as they have to integrate with a wider range of connections in the raucousness of patterns in the brain. Disentangling and extricating the underlying associations and pragmatic values embedded in lexical associations, is one of the most obdurate tasks facing all students of English.
