About This Class

Upgrade your English skills all together 

In this class , Students will be able to improve many skills such as Listening , Vocabulary , Grammar and Pronunciation 

This class is designed for basic learners and those students who have trouble understanding basic grammar , Vocabularies and Listening .. 

Do you want to have fun and Learn English ? so This is the right class for you .. 

Listening is a skill which shapes the world around you by paying attention to things and the way you reflect on them.

In my class, you are going to learn crucial information about this skill, and we are going to do several exercises in order to increase your self-awareness. Knowing where you are, is as important as knowing where you are going. Understanding your state of mind and your abilities in the present, will help you achieve what you really want in the near future.

Master English Pronunciation and Listening.

Of course the two most important things when speaking English are:

  • 1)Being understood by who you are talking to (pronunciation).

  • 2)Understanding the other person (listening skills).

  • However, these two areas are often totally ignored by English language teachers and are very difficult skills to master on your own. The result? Students of English are often totally lost when they have a real life conversation with someone who isn't either speaking very clearly or slowing down what they are saying. This means that the students are totally missing out on learning English naturally through real conversations.

Okay, guys, I suggest you to repeat this activity many times if you want to speaking deletion like natives. So let's go to the next parse and understand the vocabulary and grammar. 3. 1 please let me smoke vocab and grammar : Okay, now let's understand that grammar. Stop somebody from something or the verb comes with ING. This is a very important structure. We use it in English. For example, we must stop people from smoking. From verifying G. The teacher is tops, the students from speaking other languages. My mother's tops me from playing games. Then no is a stopped me from reading books. So do not forget, stop somebody from verb I-N-G. The reason there are, some students do not understand this. The reason there are what's the meaning? We use their ease or there are to say that something exists or doesn't exist. We use at their ease for singular nouns. For example, there is a book on the desk, and we use that there are four plural nouns. For example, there are books that desk. We also use their ease for uncountable noun. For example, there were 0s, some milk in their fridge. Milk here is uncountable noun. So we use their ease for both singular and uncountable nouns. Okay, the next part is can and count. Where do we use can unkempt. We use can to talk about possibilities or prohibitions. For example, can you do that? For example? Can you do that? Or you can smoke here? We also use CAM or can't. We use them actually to talk about ability? Like I can speak French, I can speak Italian, I can dry. I can't dams ballet. We use can to ask for and gave her mission to for example, can I go to the bathroom? Yes, you can. You can use my phone. You can't use my phone. We use can IN offers and requests to for example, can you give me a hand? Can you help me? So we're offering you can understand that we use can and can't in different situations. Next bar two is about gets an adjective. We use the structure gets plus adjective to express the process of becoming sick. Mad at such wrong. For example, you're happy, but then you heard the bad news. And turned from happy to sad. We can say that you got lost, you got sick, you got married. Or we can say, I'm getting tired, I got crazy. So get here means become. Don't forget this. How plus adjective. Why do we use this structure? We use how plus adjective to express surprise, sometimes. Surprise, for example, how interesting, how stupid, how fast, or how beautiful. So this is the grammar up this story. If you didn't understand some parts, I suggest you to comeback. How listen again and practice. Practice makes perfect. You can practice these grammatical points on vocabularies with your friends too. And if you have any questions, please ask me. Good luck. So in this Barth, we are going to explain the words and the grammar for you, the vocabularies and the grammar of this story. The vocabularies that we are going to study are angry, believe, put out, cigarette, crazy, ors, Law, Stupid, jail, criminal. The other day. And non-smokers. And the grammatical points are, stop someone from verb I-N-G. The difference between their ease and there are can and can't get plus adjective. How plus adjective? Okay, let's start with the vocabularies. The first word is angry. As you can see in the picture, angry is having a strong feeling against someone who has behaved badly. For example, he's really angry at are with me for upsetting Sophie. So angry comes with the preposition at or with. The next word is believe. Believe means to think that something is true or that what someone says is true. For example, I can't believe that she wants to go out with me. Believe that put out. As you can see, the picture put out means to make something that is burning, stop burning. For example, the firefighter put out the fire and saved the boy. Put out cigarettes. As you can see in the picture, cigarette is a thin tube of paper filled with tobacco that people smoke. It is illegal to sell cigarettes to anyone on their 16. Yes, this is not good. Crazy, crazy means to pit or strange. For example, you are going out in all the snow. Are you crazy? Are you stupid? The next word is worse. Ors means more unpleasant or difficult to them, something else that is also bad. For example, the exam was worse than I expected. Law. The system of official rules in a country. We call it law. For example, you are breaking the law and that's not good. We should not break the law. Stupid. As you can see that that picture means silly or not intelligence. For example, one stupid action has placed us all at risk. Stupid jail. As you can see the picture, jail is a place where criminals are kept as a punishment. For example, she was sent to a jail for two years. Criminal. Criminal is a person who has committed a crime, a very bad person whose steals lots of things from many places. For example, these men are dangerous criminals. The next word is the other day, or the other day. When we say it faster. The other day means if you days ago, for example, I saw Terry the other day, a few days ago. The other day. And the next word, non-smoker. People who do not smoke, we call them non-smokers. Okay, guys, we understood the vocabularies of the story. Now it's time to understand the grammar. 4. 2 to have or have not story : Understand the topic this story is about to have or have not. Tomas and mantra have been married for five years and they are very happy and successful I think. So. I want you to listen to Tomas story and find out do they want to have any children? Are no. Okay. Let's see and let's listen and understand. So everybody please listen carefully. Let's start. I'm 32 years old. My wife, Martha is 28. We've been talking about having a child last night. After talking for five hours, we finally made a decision. We have decided not to have a child. First of all, we both have good jobs. We earn enough money to have a good life. We go to good restaurants and often take vacations to Hawaii and Australia. Last month, we went to England. In addition, we'll live in a small apartment close to our jobs in the city. It's only big enough for my wife and me. We don't spend a lot of time in our tiny apartment because we work all of the time and we take vacations with the baby, everything would change. My wife would stop working and to stay home with the baby. Since our apartment is tiny, we would move to big apartment outside the city. Then I would take the train to my office and it would take an hour one way. That's no fun. That's not all. We don't know if we have enough money for baby. If my wife stops working, we wouldn't have much money. How could we live? It's very expensive to have a child, food, clothes, education, doctors. But I know many people disagree. My friends who have children are very happy. They love their children very much. And my parents want my wife and me to have a baby. That's fine for them, but not for us. We have decided no children. So the answer is no because they are afraid of losing a job and they would have less free time. So they don't want to have children right now. Okay, and this bards, you listen again and fill in each blank. Listen carefully and try to write down the words on the piece of paper. After that, we will check the correct words. Let's begin going. I'm 32 years old. My wife, Martha is 28. We've been talking about having a child last night. After talking for five hours, we finally made a decision. We have decided not to have a child. First of all, we both have good jobs. We earn enough money to have a good life. We go to good restaurants and often take vacations to Hawaii and Australia. Last month, we went to England.

We don't spend a lot of time in our tiny apartment because we work all of the time and we take vacations with the baby. Everything would change. My wife would stop working and to stay home with the baby. Since our apartment is tiny, we would move to big apartment outside the city. Then I would take the train to my office and it would take an hour one way. That's no fun. That's not all. We don't know if we have enough money for baby. If my wife stops working, we wouldn't have much money. How could we live? It's very expensive to have a child, food, clothes, education, doctors. But I know many people disagree. My friends who have children are very happy. They loved their children very much. And my parents want my wife and me to have a baby. That's fine for them, but not for us. We have decided no children. So let's take the correct words. Child jobs, apartment, vacations, parens, baby, working, and big. If you didn't understand some words and this listening, or if you didn't understand that grammar, don't worry, we will explain it all for you. Goodbye for now. Remember the best way to improve your pronunciation is listening gara pitting. I'm going to repeat the sentences The first time, slow, the second time a little faster. So you guys are repeat exactly after me. Are you ready? Let's start. We've been talking about having a child last night. We've been talking about having a child last night. We have decided not to have a child. We have decided not to have a child. We earn enough money to have a good life. We are enough money to have a good life.

My parents wants my wife and me to have a baby. My bears want my wife and me to have a baby. Perfect. You can repeat this process many times to improve your pronunciation. 5. 2 to have or have not vocab and grammar: Okay guys, in this box we are going to study that grammatical points of this story. Here we have present perfect continuous. Present perfect continuous is an action that started in the past and continued in the present. And the form is have or has been for buying g. For example. She has been awaiting for you all day and she's still waiting now. I've been working on this reports since eight o'clock this morning and I still haven't finished it yet. They have been traveling since last October and they are not home yet. So it's an action that started in the past and continue in the present. Perfect continuous. The next part is enough. What is different about the way we use enough? There are two examples in this sentence. Let's look at them separately. I don't have enough money. So money is a noun here, so it comes after enough. And number two 0s, I will never be a rich enough. Or H Here is an adjective, so it comes before enough. So enough comes after or before. Now, actually enough comes before nouns and after adjective. Yes. So Let's look at the two rules. Enough plus noun. There is not enough food for everybody's go and buy some more. Adjective enough. He's not tall enough to play basketball. So we understand that enough comes before nouns and enough comes after Adjective. The next part is since. We used, since for a reason, we use sense as a actually subordinating conjunction to introduce a subordinate clause. We use it to give a reason for something. For example, scene had to no reason to take a taxi since he's flat was near enough to walk to. Since her husband hated holidays so much, she decided to go on her own. They couldn't deliver the parcel since no one was there to answer the door. So we use since to give her a reason. Do not forget this. Ok, goodbye for now. Okay guys, in this parts we are going to understand the words and the grammar of this story that we listened to. So the vocabularies are Vacation. Finally, make a decision. Enough. In addition, tiny stay, education and disagree. And the grammatical points that we are going to study are, have been verb I-N-G. Enough plus noun. Since, which means because. Okay, let's start with the vocabularies. The First War days, vacation. What's the meaning of vacation? Occasion is a period of time when you are not at home, but are staying somewhere else for enjoyment. For example, we are taking a vacation in Florida. Don't forget to use the verb take, take your vacation. Finally. Finally means after a long time or some difficulty. For example, we finally got home just after midnight. Finally, next word is making a decision. A very important phrase. Make a decision means to choose something after thinking about several possibilities. So make a decision. For example, I haven't decided whether or not to tell him. I haven't decided whether or not to tell him. The next word is enough. Enough means as image has necessary. For example, they had enough fuel for one week. In addition, a very nice and very essential phrase. In addition means added to what already exists or happens. Or we can say or more than you already do or have. For example, in addition to teaching, she works as a nurse in the holidays. In addition, tiny. Tiny means extremely small. For example, we can say a tiny baby or a tiny little Rome. So tiny is something that is very, very small. Next ward eight stay. Stay means to continue to be inept plays, job, et cetera, and not leave. For example, the weather was bad, so we stayed at home to continue to be in a place. Education, educating soon is a process of teaching and learning in school or college. Or the knowledge that you get from this. For example, more money should be spent on education. Exactly. And the last word is this agree. Disagree means to have a different opinion from someone else about something. For example, I disagree with most of what he said. Disagree. Great.

I had a terrible dream last week on now I'm very worried. 7. 3 the dream vocab and grammar : Okay guys, now was understand the grammar. The first part is about simple past tense. It's a definite time in the past. We use the past simple to talk about different a time in the past. Often we simplify when something happened. For example, yesterday, three weeks ago, last year, or when I was young. Let me give you some examples. Did you watch that film yesterday? Don't forget that in questions, we always use det to speak about the past. He left at the end of November. Left, he's a past verb. When they were young, they hate it meets, hey teddies a past verb. For regular verbs, we add ED to the base form of the verb. For example, work, worked, or d, If the verb already ends in e, for example, move, we say moved. Many verbs are irregular. Here are some common ones. Each one has to be learned. For example, go is wins and 4I two, we say who wrote. So, we must memorize them. The next party is must. We use must to express obligation or duty. This also refers to laws and regulations. For example, I must memorize all of these rules about modal verbs. People must remain seated until the show is over. You must wear a seat belt at all times. Number two, we use muster emphasize the necessity of something. For example, humans must have drinking water at least every two days. You must give up smoking. It's bad for you. We must have a spatial pyramid to camp in the national park. So we use masks to express obligation or duty. Or we use wants to speak about emphasis. When we emphasize the necessity of something. Present continuous, we use the present continuous to talk about events which are in progress. Okay? In the progress at the moment of speaking. So we use our ys plus the verb I-N-G form. And we use the short form more often than the full form spatially when speaking. Let's listen to this short conversation. What Times dinner. And be cooking. So I'm cooking is a present continuous cooking, which is short for I am cooking. I'm cooking now. So it'll be ready in about half an hour. There's another sentence. She's pressing the bottom. So she's pressing is a present continuous. She is pressing the bottom, but nothing is happening. Nothing is happening is also a present continuous. So we use the present continuous to speak about something that is happening at the moment of speaking. But very important tense. Okay guys, and this part we are going to study the vocabulary and the grammar of this story. The vocabulary is our sleepy, hit. Scared, afraid, terrible, dangerous, hell, hurts, and dream. And the grammatical points are simple past-tense, modest and simple progressive tense. Let's start with the vocabularies. Sleepy. What's the meaning of sleepy? Sleepy means feeling tired and wanting to go to sleep. For example, the heat had made me sleepy. Heads. Hit means to touch something quickly and with force using your hand or an object in your hand, hits she hit him on the head with her tennis rackets heads.

So now it's time to go and improve. Your vocabulary is on grammar. 9. 4 the dream grammar : Now let's understand the grammar. And this part we speak about preposition ATS, AT used to point out specific time. For example, I will meet you at 12:00 PM or the bus will stop here at 05:45 PM. It is used to indicate a place. For example, there is a party at that club house, or there were hundreds of people at the park. Or we can say we saw a baseball game at this stadium. So we indicating a place at also used to indicate an email address. Please email me at ABC at D, E, F, G.com, for example. It is also used to indicate an activity. For example, he laughed at my acting. I am good at drawing a porch rate. So we use the preposition at, in different places. Possessive S. We use apostrophe S, also called possessive S, as a determiner to show that something belongs to someone or something. For example, is that the Libya's back. Britain's coastline is very beautiful. We can also use it in complex noun phrases. For example, Greg is hair, youngest daughter's husband. We can use to Possessive S constructions. In this same noun phrase. For example, we went to Jack's father's funeral. And we also use possessive as to talk about time and duration. For example, is that yesterday's paper. So we can see we use possessive S in different situations, in different places. Should we use, should most commonly to talk about what is the ideal or best thing to do in a situation. For example, there should be more public hospitals. They should reduce the price of petrol. It's so expensive. There should be four more candles on the cake. Should a very common word. We use it in English a lot. And we use could, may and might to express degrees of possibility. Many native speaker disagree on which one expresses more. Earliest, certainly. Okay, let's compare the first sentence. The restaurant may close. So it is likely that the restaurants will close. The restaurant could close. Here it is less likely that the restaurant will close. And the last sentences there were restaurants might close. There is only a possibility that the restaurants will close, but no one is very Sure. So we can understand the difference between May, Kurds and mite here. If you didn't understand some parts, I suggest you to come back and review it. Good luck. 10. 5 dangerous friends story : Understand the topic. This is story about dangerous friends. A first year university student, Mary doesn't know anyone at her university.

Godlike. 11. 5 dangerous friends vocab and grammar : Okay, now, this is the grammar lesson. In this part we speak about Well. One of the main uses of well is to refer to things in the future that we think are certain. For example, the roams will be redecorated, but all the facilities will be the same. So we refer to something in the future that we think are serfdom. Will comes first in the verb phrase in a statement. And it's after the subject and before another verb. It is often contracted to L. In informal situations. For example, the next Olympic Games will be in London. I'll give you a call at about six o'clock. We'll cannot be used with another modal verb. For example, you will be obliged to sign a contract before starting employment. But don't say, you will must sign a contract because we cannot use will with another modal verb. Or we cannot say, you must, we'll sign a contract. So don't forget that we use whale to speak about future that we think certain. Next parties so and neither so I neither responses can be very difficult. Let's just focus on what we say. If we agree with someone, if someone says something negative and we agree with them, we can use neither. But if someone says something positive and we agree with them, we can use. So. We must also remember that the verb in this statement needs to agree with the verb in the response. Let me give you some examples. I am excited about the party. So i agree. And then I say, so am I so am I or I am not excited about the party. So I agree with this negative sentence and I say, neither am I. So we use neither for negative agreement, and we use so for positive agreement. So and neither. The next bond adjective, ED and ING. My holiday was relaxing. I felt really relaxed. Few but common adjectives. And in either ED or ING. For example, worried or worrying. Interests that are interesting, excited, or exciting. Ed adjectives. Adjectives that end in EDR used to describe how people feel. For example, he was surprised to find that he had been upgraded to first grade or first-class. Iowa's confused it by the findings of the report. She felt tired after working hard all day. So we use ED adjectives to describe how people feel. But ING adjectives, adjectives that end in I-N-G are used to describe things and situations. Compared to these example sentences, to the ones above. Being upgraded to first class is surprising. So I'm trying to describe a situation. Being upgraded to the first class is surprising. The findings of this report are confusing, working hard all day. E's tiring. Okay. So we can understand the difference between ED and ING adjectives. And they are very important. Gets, as it become, get, meaning become, we commonly use gets as active domain become or to describe a change of state or situation. For example, put your codes and a scarf on your, or, sorry, or you'll get cold. It means or you will become cold. Let's hope she gets better soon. She becomes better. She gets better soon. It's getting dark. It's means it's becoming dark. So it gets sometimes you use it's inset of become in different situations. Let's understand the vocabulary and the grammar of this story. The vocabularies are confused. Diary, guy, excited. Tradition during drawn, left out and lonely. And the grammatical points that's on greater explained for you are, well. So and neither are the adjectives ED and get, which means become. Okay, let's start with vocabularies. Confused. What's the meaning GF confused, as you can see in the picture, confuse me, is unable to think clearly or to understand something. For examples, sorry, I'm completely confused. Diary. There is a book containing spaces for all the days and moms of the year in which you write meetings and other things that you must remember. For example, according to my diary, I've got two meetings on Monday. Diary. Guy, Guy means a man. We use it in an informal way when we call a person guy. For example, what an eye is, guy. Excited. Excited means feeling very happy and enthusiastic, happy, excited faces. Or we can say that this is another example that children are getting really excited about the party. They are feeling very happy and enthusiastic. Tradition. Tradition is a custom or a way of behaving that has continued for a long time and a group of people or society. There is a strong tradition of dams in St. Petersburg. During, during means for the whole of a period of time, during MOs, usually at home, during the day. During drunk, as you can see in the picture, drawn, means unable to behave or speak normally because you have drawn too much alcohol. He usually gets drawn at part is drunk, left out. If someone feels left out, they are unhappy because they have not been included in an activity. The older children had gone upstairs to a play and she felt left out. And the last war, it is lonely. Lonely is unhappy because you are not with other people. You are lonely. She gets lonely now that the kids have all left out. Exactly. Okay, now we have understood the vocabularies. This time. Next time we must understand their grammatical points. If you have any problems understanding of Cadbury's or grammar, Do not for gaps. To come back and review the lessons. This is the best way that you can improve your English. 12. 6 i can't stop story : Understand the topic. This is a very interesting story. I can stop. This story is about Teresa.
