In the first of a series of self-feedback posts, I set out the Englishin3d ‘recipe’: the procedure I follow when creating lessons on this site.
An extended lesson based on a documentary film. Includes listening for gist, for detail and for opinion. Idioms including ways to describe age. Using passive forms and cleft sentences when explaining a process.
It’s well known that native speakers of English make errors often enough, especially in writing. This is a selective list of some of these errors.
A complete lesson at high C1 or C2 level, using excerpts from a documentary film about a fraud in the classical music world. Includes vocabulary work relating to frauds and to an artist’s career, and exercises to practise hedging language and euphemisms.
A guide to commas for advanced learners, covering complex sentences, conditionals, subsidiary clauses and appositives. Part of a series of punctuation resources.
