Andre's unique English method
   

"the Andre's legendary method of learning English.."
[ ] At the start of the class you said: "I have a good news for you..." This should be: "I have some good news for you..." When explaining your concerns about your listening skills you said: "...what they are talking with me in the meetings." This should be: "...what they are talking to me about in the meetings." or "...what they are saying in the meetings." The online study tools can help with vocabulary and sentence structure too.

[ ] Can I back to you tomorrow with an answer on that?

[ ] I et what you are saying

[ ] I hope so

[ ] I noticed you made the following mistakes in class

[ ] I won't bri ng (buy) because they are to big to my feet (for my feet) - please review word choice here.

[ ] I'd kindly request you to increase

[ ] I'd like a bottle of water

[ ] I'd like to meet

[ ] It is much more difficult for me

[ ] Reading books and articles written in English is a great way to build your vocabulary and it improves sentence structure and grammar. Google Books, iBooks and Project Gutenberg all have books you can download for free. Also have a look for Macmillan readers (http://www.macmillanreaders.com) and Penguin readers (http://www.penguinreaders.com) they publish popular and famous books, but have simplified the text and vocabulary so it is more suitable for people learning English as a second language. When choosing a book to read try and find something that you find easy, if you have to stop reading to look up new words it won’t be as effective. Maybe you can read a book that you have already read in your native tongue, or the book of a movie you have seen.

[ ] Why have you come to the united states?

[ ] Your range of vocabulary is improving steadily.

[ ] anyone else?

[ ] believe in yourself

[ ] check it out confira

[ ] I have some good news for you..." When explaining your concerns about your listening skills you said: "...what they are talking with me in the meetings." This should be: "...what they are talking to me about in the meetings." or "...what they are saying in the meetings." The online study tools can help with vocabulary and sentence structure too.

[ ] I use to participate in many meetings.

[ ] I would say

[ ] Is there a sale on? What sneakers do you recommend? Remember to review these phrases.

[ ] One thing you may want to work on is verbs, as I noticed you said, “It is my dream to know another side of the United States because I haven’t been in the Pacific Ocean until today.” We should say, “It is my dream to visit the other side of the United States because I haven’t been to the Pacific Ocean before.

[ ] The best way to boost confidence is through practice

[ ] To further expand your vocabulary range, I would suggest that you study word collocation because they broaden your scope of expression. Collocations are combinations of words that are commonly used together. There are several types of collocations made from combinations of verb, noun, adjective, etc. For example, excruciating pain (Adj. + Noun), a surge of anger (Noun + Noun), etc

[ ] To improve, try to work on your word stress. Use the syllable website to help you focus on the stresses in words. For example, 'techNOlogy' has 3 syllables and the 'no' sound is stressed (the 2nd syllable). Try to look up the stress in common words and practise your pronunciation.

[ ] You had difficulty using the prepositions of, for, to, and from. For example, you said “First of all, I would like to thank you to this opportunity.” You should have said “First of all, I would like to thank you for this opportunity.”. “For” usually tells us about the use of something, a reason or purpose. We need new batteries for the remote control. “Of” usually shows a connection or belonging. Is she a friend of yours? This is a photo of my wife. “To” usually shows the direction of something; moving towards. We're going to Malta next week. Where are you going to buy your new shoes?

[ ] heating esquentando aquecendo

[ ] how do you like it? o que você achou?

[ ] how much money did you bring with you?

[ ] you have to go

[ ] your time is up seu tempo acabou

[ ] Dive in! take risks (mergulhe de cara! arrisque0se

[ ] Do you want me to gift wrap these shoes?

[ ] Don't forget some of the phrases we learned in class today for your trip to the USA : I have a meeting with them once a month. So, I can understand what they are saying to me but my level of comprehension is not high. I’d like to visit main street at Las Vegas. Then I would like to finish by going to San Francisco. I haven't decided if I will go by car or if I will go plane. I've never seen the Pacific Ocean. I've never been to California. This is my first time going to California. Changes coming down the pipeline

[ ] I participate in many meetings

[ ] I see your point

[ ] If you are not back by the time the class ends I will send you a copy of what I have completed thus far.

[ ] I’ve been working with Native Americans for 7 months

[ ] No problems. One thing I did notice was that almost all of your mistakes occurred early in the class, the more you spoke the better your English got. Try using your English more often, just a little bit of reading, listening or speaking a few times a day can be really helpful.

[ ] They help me with some challenges

[ ] When you arrive at the office you could ask them: "Do you have a desk/office I can use?" or "Is there somewhere I can leave my stuff?" When explaining that you do many different jobs in the Brazil office you could describe yourself as:"A Jack of all trades". The online study tools can help with vocabulary too.

[ ] Your pronunciation of 'Once' was a bit off, you were saying "on-ss". Once is pronounced: /wʌns/ (like the number 1) Remember that the online study tools are there to help improve your pronunciation still further. Online dictionaries such as: http://dictionary.cambridge.org/help/phonetics.php can be very helpful Not only do they give you examples of how the words are used but they also give you the phonetic spelling of the word and recordings to help with pronunciation.
