A fun part of class for my kids is the ability to earn "dollars" for behavior and achievement that can be redeemed for prizes later. I thought I would share a set of fun money I made for Halloween. My students really enjoy collecting these monster themed bucks and they work great as a motivator for my young ones. Hope these can be useful for you and your class as well. Enjoy!
Thanks to Bruce and Les for confirming that I was on the right track. I īm not so sure that it will satisfy poor Janesl or my students but that īs the wonder of phrasal verbs for you.
@Jayho: Blag is common enough in London and is slightly different to the online dictionary definition (obtain through persuasion) meaning to make something up or sound convincing when not really prepared. Although the thought occurs that I have been using it incorrectly.
Quite likely to see it used in its old, traditional meaning in crime novels from the early to mid 20th century.
I have to write solutions to anticipated problems in my DELTA mod2 and pronunciation is not my strongest point. So I have two questions:
- "I am being told" can be heard as "I am been told" ( I am aware the second is grammatically not correct)
First of all I need to figure out if being and been are auxiliary verbs or not... Kelly (2000) and everyone else dont mention these in their weak forms tables/analysis... So I am pushed to think they are strong forms...
In that case I would transcribe being as /biːɪŋ/ and been as /biːn/
My first question is this correct, the second one is there a way to raise awareness about the difference in pronunciation?
- It was filmed by James Cameron.
Sentence stress would be on filmed and James Cameron. The rest are weak forms. How would you transcribe "it" and "by " as weak forms? (feel free to correct me if I m wrong)
I have a lot of questions about the TOEFL exam. I have a small business preparing students for the Cambridge Exams but some students have asked me to consider preparing them for the TOEFL and I know almost nothing about it. It seems to me that it is more or less on the Euro Framework of C1, more or less CAE, am I right? Can anyone recommend a good textbook? Teaching tips?
As a follow-up to Maryse, this is a test which is kind of similar to IELTS, so not positioned at any particular level but aimed at measuring candidates ī competence whatever it may be. Thus, there is no "passing" or "failing" grade, it depends what you need. I guess nowadays the internet version is the most popular (IBT) - max score there is 120, in the computer one - max is 300. For what I know, the paper version is no longer provided ;-)
Candidates have to do reading, writing, listening and speaking. The reading and listening sections are graded i.e. put from the easiest to the most difficult like a university lecture. In the reading section for instance I remember a text about corn husking
If I were you, I īd definitely adopt a coursebook, especially that you don īt have much experience. Macmillan has Direct to TOEFL, OXford University Press has: Oxford Preparation Course for TOEFL IBT Exam (B2-C2 level, there is an extra video you can buy to it) and Tactics for the TOEFL IBT Test(B1-C1), Cambridge University Press offers Cambridge Preparation for the TOEFL test 4th ed. - just to mention a few - your choice.
You can get some free test questions from the website - I īd take advantage.
