Aprender inglés de verdad sigue siendo para mucha gente el reto más importante, y para alcanzarlo, tenemos que utilizar el mismo lenguaje que los nativos. Si pensamos en cómo hemos utlizado palabras como “some” y “dead” hasta ahora, de manera instantánea estaremos pensando en “algunos” y “muerto”.
Para alguien que está aprendiendo inglés, es toda una satisfacción saber utilizar las mismas palabras que los nativos de esa lengua.
Para enfatizar como los anglosajones de manera coloquial, hay dos palabras que los británicos usan mucho: el adjetivo “some” y el adverbio “dead”. Hasta ahora, seguro que tirábamos de la lista de siempre y utilizábamos “very” o “really”.
Vamos a ver unos ejemplos con “some” y “dead”:
-Lionel Messi is some footballer. (a really/very good footballer)
-The exam was dead easy. (a very/really easy exam)
-That was some football match. (a very good football match)
-She is some teacher. Her explanations are dead good.
(a very good teacher and very good explanations)
En Touch English te queremos enseñar inglés en estado puro, por eso, enseñamos el verdadero inglés hablado por los anglosajones, como hemos visto en este artículo. Te estamos esperando en www.touchenglish.es con un método que es “dead easy” de seguir 🙂
Soon, we will be launching our Blog Membership. This will include our new Podcast which will cover all the different aspects of each article in detail, which will help you practice your listening skills, and furthermore, you can listen to the blog post itself in audio form so that you can really improve your English pronunciation, among other things. As well as that, there will be even more weekly articles and posts which will really help you improve your English vocabulary. All posts and articles will be in English and Spanish, but the Podcast is in English. One of our native and qualified English teachers will do the Podcast.
We have also added 2 Preposition courses to our Blog Membership package. For many students, trying to use prepositions of place or time correctly is a complete nightmare. So much so that, in end, everyone ends up saying «in» for everything! This is because, as usual, hardly anyone knows what they are really saying. Well, it is time to stop guessing and, instead of crossing your fingers when you use prepositions in English, you can finally begin to understand how to use them and feel confident at the same time. Can you imagine that? Remember, your objective is to understand what you are saying. Once this happens, the feeling of looking or feeling ridiculous when you speak English will be a thing of the past.
Also, you will receive information and clear explanations about Phrasal Verbs from our Phrasal Verb club with our very own method, and if that is not enough, we will also include idioms or expressions, with of course, all the usual explanations and advice so that you will use what you are learning with all the confidence in the world. You will hear all of this as well in our new Podcast which is exclusive to our Blog Membership.
Remember, when you speak English, your objective is not only to understand what you are saying but also to pronounce as many words as you can in a clear way. We want to be your English «bible», where every week, you are learning so much English with clear examples and explanations.
Finally, if the content of our Blog Membership wasn’t enough, we also give you the opportunity to solve all your ongoing problems with your English studies with our Problem Solving service. Our team of English experts are just dying to receive your queries, doubts and problems, so just leave us a message in our platform and we will get back to you ASAP.
Bye for now!
