NEGOTIATION LANGUAGE
When negotiating, it’s common to use this pattern: (1) Show your understanding of a person; (2) Show (politely) that you disagree with this person; (3) Make a new offer that works for both people.

Each day, we focus on the language needed for this type of conversation

 PRESENT PERFECT
We have looked at Present Perfect several times because this is a tense many students have questions about. Each day of this week, we will look at a different way we use the Present Perfect.

 USEFUL ACRONYMS
An acronym is a word made from the first letters of other words. For example, EU is an acronym for the European Union, UK is the acronym for the United Kingdom and USA is the acronym for the United States of America.

THE MODAL MUST
We are looking at the modal MUST and the many ways we use this modal.

Vídeo

Vision of a Better World. A video talk by Pete Alcorn

Cómo ya sabes, es mejor hacer un poco cada día que esperar a tener 1 o 2 horas a la semana para ponerte a estudiar inglés.

¿Qué puedes hacer hoy? Te proponemos que veas el siguiente vídeo de 4 minutos de Pete Alcorn, una charla motivadora y optimista que habla sobre cómo las personas vemos y afrontamos el pasado y el futuro.

Después de visionar el vídeo descarga este ACTIVITY PACK y contesta las preguntas.

In this short, optimistic talk from TED2009, Pete Alcorn shares a vision of the world of two centuries from now — when declining populations and growing opportunity prove Malthus was wrong.

English Daily Vitamin (September – October 2017)

daily_vitamin_2016Hello!

This year, we are trying something new with the Daily Vitamin. Each week, we will have a different theme. All the lessons from the week will focus on that theme. We hope you like this change. If you missed a lesson, click on the relevant link below:

PHRASAL VERBS FOR THE OFFICE (September)
We began with Phrasal Verbs for the Office

BULATS READING PART 1 PRACTICE (September)
The BULATS exam (Business Language Testing Service) is to test your English in a business context, and many of the questions are excellent practice for English in work settings.

ADJECTIVES FOR A CV (September)
Both native English speakers and English learners often have problems writing a CV: it is very hard to describe ourselves without using boring or common language.

 SPOT THE ERROR (October)
Each day we are giving you a sentence in English and you must decide if the sentence is correct or not; if is it not correct, tell us what the mistake in the sentence is.

BEGINNING BUSINESS EMAILS OR LETTERS (October)
We are looking at Beginning Business Emails in English.

SYNONYMS FOR STRANGE (October)
We are looking at Synonyms for the Word Strange.

FCE READING AND USE OF ENGLISH PART I PRACTICE (October)
We are looking at some example questions from the Cambridge First Certificate Exam. All of these are sample questions from Part I of the Reading and Use of English module. If you are not preparing for the Cambridge FCE, this is still great vocabulary practice!
