If you can read this message then you
are well on your way on improving your
communication skills. In this day and
age, people communicate more than
ever. Technology has brought our lives
closer. There are endless ways to engage
in communication than in the past.
The English language. This language
has interconnected humans in more
ways than any other language. It
doesn’t matter where you are in the
world. English will be there to help you.
However, for some people English can be
a daunting task. There are people out
there that can read it but have a hard
time having conversations, and what
about those of us who can speak it, but
our grammar skills are more difficult to
decipher than Egyptian hieroglyphics.
Have you ever tried to learn English
and failed miserably? Have you been to
schools and have found yourself with
headaches and thought that this wasn’t
for you? I am sure you have been there.
What if I were to tell you that you can
learn English in a new groundbreaking
way? What if English could be learned
in such a way that you were actually
enthusiastic about it? What if that
opportunity that you’ve always wanted
were right in front of you?.
Imagine learning how to speak naturally
08
with people from other countries
and opening your world to a land of
opportunities. Imagine classes where
not only would you know you were
acquiring the language but also feeling
your progress at the same time.
A class
where you would feel like you were in an
inspiring, emotional movie that you just
couldn’t stop watching.
A class where
boredom would not be an issue. A class
where you could improve your oral skills
along with your listening. Those 2 areas
are usually the most difficult for students
and non-native English teachers, but they
are also the 2 most important areas that
show you really master a language.
Let’s test a little bit of what you know. In
the state of Guerrero and in this country, I
have found a lot of confusion with English
caused by bad habits or inadequate
teaching practices;
I have heard these
mistakes from advanced students and
from teachers who give English classes.
The confusion:
for/to
Error
: I go to school for study. |
Correct
: I
go to school to study. With a verb to give
a reason, we use to not for. Tell me you
haven’t done that before. There’s more.
The confusion
: The number 5
Error:
When it is pronounced like “figh.”
|
Correct:
It’s better to pronounce it like
“fighf”. The sound is not exactly an f
sound, but it is more appropriate than
“figh” (the final sound is more like an f
with a small vibration between your
teeth and bottom lip.) Some college
professors, certification specialists, and
grade school teachers have this small
mispronunciation. How about the next
one?
The confusion:
The, the, the…
Error:
The people are bad. I like the
dogs. I watch the TV. |
Correct:
People
are bad. I like dogs. I watch TV.
In Spanish it is very common to use the
articles “el, la, los, las.”However, when
you speak about general things in English,
we don’t use “the.” Only use it when you
and the other person know exactly what
you are referring to.
In conclusion
, there is a new way to
speed up your learning and to help
improve your English- the right way. Are
you interested? If so, send an email to
ventas@clixe.in and we will let you know
when there will be a free demonstration!
We go all over the state of Guerrero and
we could be in a city near you.
