What do you think of Alan’s latest idea? He has written two new tests containing idiomatic phrases that are often used in conversations. How many of those answers do you know? What other phrases would you like to practise? Have you checked these tests yet?
a) read them aloud
b) repeat them often
c) listen to them
d) try writing them down out of memory
You have learned many idiomatic expressions of your mother tongue because you head them so often in appropriate contexts. Create a similar situation with English phrases and you will get similar results.[YSaerTTEW443543]
Thinker, why should I think for you if you can think for yourself? People who say that somehing is boring don’t have their own ideas that are interesting and unique. Learning something new, acquiring knowledge and skills can never be boring.[YSaerTTEW443543]
Torsten! It is very easy to explain. You are a teacher. I am not a teacher. You have an experience to teach pupils. At the moment I am the pupil who wants to learn interestingly. I think you are capable of successful solving this diufficult( but often solvable) problem .
I understand. And now you are expecting me to offer you a solution. I greatly appreciate your trust in my abilities. I know that you are capable of finding interesting and effective ways to improve your English. One of them is our forum where we can share our experiences.[YSaerTTEW443543]
When somebody says «You’ve lost me» they mean that they cannot follow — they cannot understand what the other person is talking about. For example, if your colleague is talking about a topic which you don’t know all the facts and details you might not understand any of their information.
I hope you are still with us? :)[YSaerTTEW443543]
