Good morning Friend, (or is it in the afternoon when you are reading this?) Anyway, here is email English lesson number 3 for you. Today you will learn how to introduce yourself: "Hello, my name is Alan. I'm from England in the United Kingdom so my nationality is British." This looks simple but I often see people make mistakes when they talk about themselves. That's why we have created the personal profile
lesson for you. Please read these sentences aloud to memorize the grammar structures. There might be a few new vocabulary words for you such as "founder" or "trading". A company founder is a person who starts a company or website. For example, Bill Gates is the founder of Microsoft. Please also note the difference between "interesting" and "interested in". If you like doing something, you say "I'm interested in doing it." For example, you can say "I'm interested in reading thrillers" or "I'm interested in playing computer games". The word "interesting" can be used like this: "Yesterday I saw an interesting movie." Or "I really like your ideas. They are very interesting." So, please beware of the difference between "interesting" and "interested in".
Now, are you ready for some listening practice? Today, you will hear Sue talk about her daily job activities
. Please listen to the MP3 files several times to make sure you understand all the vocabulary. In addition, you can read the transcript of the recording. If you want to use the text in your English class, you can download the PDF document and print it off. Once you've listened to the text, you should be able to answer the following questions: What company does Sue work for? What time does she usually start work? Why does she enjoy the personal contact with her clients? Please post your answers here on the forum
As usual, there is a new multiple choice test waiting for you today. This time, you have to distinguish between the verbs listen and hear
. If you are not sure when to use "listen to" and when "hear", you should listen to hear or listen to?
