Lesson 7
Dear Friend,

You will probably agree that consistency is the key to learning English. Consistency means that you practise your English on a regular basis. For example, it''s much more effective to learn English for 10 to 20 minutes every single day than learning English for 5 hours once a month. That''s why you receive a short email English lesson every third day. Do you know which lesson number this one is? Yes, it''s your email English lesson number 7 and today we are reviewing the "present simple" again.

If you learned English at school or through an English course, you probably remember what "present simple" was all about? Well, it''s a "tense" and most learners of English get frustrated with all these difficult words and terms. But simple present should really be simple, shouldn''t it? Just take a look at these sentences: "My name is Larry Page and I live in the United States of America. I work for Google. My best friend''s name is Sergei Brin and he works for Google too. We both like developing the world''s most popular search engine." Now, can you create similar sentences using the simple present? If you need some more information, please read the simple present overview.

And now it''s your turn: Go to the forum and and write your own sentences with the verbs Sunny mentions in her forum post. I hope you know to use the forum? It''s very simple. You create a new account by choosing a name and password, click on the email link you receive and you are finished. Here is the registration page again. If you post your sentences on the forum, I will give you some feedback and ideas on how to improve your grammar and vocabulary skills.

In the meantime, we should finish our audio alphabet training. Here are the last letters of the alphabet for you: alphabet training. As you can see, Sue mentions quite a lot of English abbreviations in this audio session. If you want to learn more about the difference between acronyms and abbreviations, you should read acronym vs. abbreviation which explains why "NATO" is an acronym and "FBI" is an abbreviation.

Friend, how did you like your last test? How many of the questions did you answer right on your first try? Our new test is all about English articles and I hope you''ll enjoy this one.

I look forward to meeting you on the forum.

Best regards,
