This activity is designed to improve sentence accuracy and complexity. Most students can produce the key content words in a sentence. However, they have difficulty with accuracy because the functional words are difficult or can seem unimportant. This activity will help learners eliminate problems with these functional words by giving them immediate feedback on the mistakes they are making. It will also help students develop their use of more natural, varied and complex sentence structures.

TIP: Say the sentence out loud. Notice the types of mistake you make often. Focus on those types of errors. (singular/plural, subject-verb agreement, article use, prepositions, gerunds and infinitives, noun clauses, adjective clauses, word order, and word forms.)

También ayudará a los estudiantes a desarrollar su uso de estructuras de oraciones más naturales, variadas y complejas.

triangle Listen & Repeat 듣고 따라하기 Ouça e repita Escuchar y repetir [ ? ]

Listen & Repeat

This activity has two purposes.

The first purpose is to improve listening accuracy. Learners can often understand the general meaning of a video but still not hear and understand many of the words that are said. This is because native speakers tend to say the functional words unclearly. (eg. don’t know, going to, want to, can’t, must have) This activity is designed to help learners improve their ability to hear these words.

TIP: Learners should listen, and then try to repeat exactly what they hear. Then they should click “Show” and read the sentence. After reading the sentence, learners should listen again and try to hear each word.

The second purpose is to improve pronunciation.

TIP: Learners should listen to and read the sentences at the same time. Then learners should try to copy the pronunciation and intonation of the speaker exactly.

TIP: Exaggerating the intonation and feeling of the speaker is useful. It may feel awkward or funny, but it will help you sound more natural.

Escuchar y Repetir

Esta actividad tiene dos propósitos separados.

El primer propósito es mejorar la precisión auditiva. Los estudiantes a menudo pueden comprender el significado general de un video, pero aún no escuchan ni comprenden muchas de las palabras que se dicen. En particular, los hablantes nativos tienden a decir las palabras funcionales (p. Ej., No sé, voy a, quiero, no puedo, debe haberlo hecho) de manera poco clara. Esta actividad está diseñada para ayudar a los alumnos a mejorar su capacidad para escuchar estas palabras.

CONSEJO: Los alumnos deben escuchar y luego intentar repetir exactamente lo que se dijo. Luego deben hacer clic en "Show" y leer la oración. Después de leer la oración, los alumnos deben volver a escuchar e intentar escuchar cada palabra.

El segundo propósito es mejorar la pronunciación.

CONSEJO: Los alumnos deben escuchar y leer las oraciones al mismo tiempo. Luego, los alumnos deben intentar copiar la pronunciación y la entonación del hablante.

CONSEJO: Es útil exagerar la entonación y el sentimiento del hablante. Puede parecer incómodo o divertido, pero te ayudará a sonar más natural.

듣고 따라하기

이 액티비티에는 두 가지 목적이 있습니다.

첫 번째 목적은 청취 정확도를 높이는 것입니다. 학생들은 종종 비디오의 일반적인 의미를 이해할 수 있지만 여전히 많은 단어를 듣고 이해하지 못합니다. 특히 원어민은 기능적 단어 (예 : 모르겠다, 갈 것, 갖고 싶어, 가질 수 없어야 한다)를 불분명하게 말하는 경향이 있습니다. 이 액티비티는 학습자가 이러한 단어를 듣는 능력을 향상시킬 수 있도록 고안되었습니다.

팁 : 학습자는 듣고 나서 말한 내용을 정확하게 반복해야 합니다. 그들은“Show”를 클릭하고 문장을 읽어야 합니다. 문장을 읽은 후 학습자는 다시 듣고 각 단어를 들어야 합니다.

두 번째 목적은 발음을 향상시키는 것입니다.

팁 : 학습자는 동시에 문장을 듣고 읽어야 합니다. 그런 다음 학습자는 화자의 발음과 억양을 따라 해 보아야 합니다.

팁 : 화자의 억양과 느낌을 과장하는 것이 유용합니다. 어색하거나 재미있게 느껴질 수 있지만 더 자연스럽게 들리는 데 도움이 됩니다.

Ouvir e repetir

Esta atividade tem dois propósitos.

O primeiro objetivo é melhorar a precisão auditiva. Os alunos geralmente podem entender o significado geral de um vídeo, mas ainda não ouvem e entendem muitas das palavras que são ditas. Isso ocorre porque os falantes nativos tendem a dizer as palavras funcionais de forma pouco clara. (por exemplo, não sei, vou, quero, não posso, devo ter) Esta atividade é projetada para ajudar os alunos a melhorar sua capacidade de ouvir essas palavras.

DICA: os alunos devem ouvir e tentar repetir exatamente o que ouviram. Em seguida, deveriam clicar em “Mostrar” e ler a frase. Depois de ler a frase, os alunos devem ouvir novamente e tentar ouvir cada palavra.

O segundo objetivo é melhorar a pronúncia.

DICA: os alunos devem ouvir e ler as frases ao mesmo tempo. Em seguida, os alunos devem tentar copiar exatamente a pronúncia e a entonação do falante.

DICA: É útil exagerar na entonação e no sentimento do falante. Pode parecer estranho ou engraçado, mas ajudará você a soar mais natural.

Phil: Fun. Where?

Desiree: 314

Phil: Oh, the two-bedroom cottage with the indoor/outdoor family room.

Desiree: Very good. How did you...

Phil: Bet you're loving that steam shower.

Claire: Phil, that's creepy.

Phil: Oh, sorry. I'm a real estate mogul. What?! No, I am a real-estate agent. Um, we caravanned that house. Great, uh, deck.

Desiree: Thanks. I'm just there until my divorce is final.

Phil: Now, who is coconuts enough to divorce you?

Claire: We got to go. But we'll see you around.

Desiree: I'd love it.

Phil: All right.

Phil: Bye.

Phil: What?

Claire: Mm-hmm.

Phil: That's horrible.

Phil: Oh, hey. Hey!

Desiree: Hi!

Phil: Hi.

Desiree: Hi, uh, this is really embarrassing, but I locked myself out of my house.

Phil: Oh, tsh! I do it all the time. Don't be embarrassed.

Desiree: I was hoping you could help me. There's a window open, but I can't reach it. Would you mind?

Phil: Yeah, sure. Great. Yeah. Of course. You know what they say. Every time god closes a door, he opens a window. Or I guess in this case, every time he locks you out. Okay, what do we got here?

Phil: I mean, "Am I attracted to her?" Yes. "Would I ever act on it?" No. No way. Not while my wife is still alive.

Desiree: Are you sure I can't get you something to drink?

Phil: Yeah, no, I'm fine, really.

Desiree: If I knew a man was going to climb into my bedroom window, I would have cleaned up a bit.

Phil: Are you kidding me? It smelled great in there, like lotions and oils for dry skin and you know calloused hands.

Desiree: Yeah. It's a candle.

Phil: Uh-oh.

Desiree: What's wrong?

Phil: The bike's gone.

Desiree: Oh, no. Can I help you find it?

Phil: That's all right. Thank you.

Desiree: Ok. Thank you.

Phil: The good news is - Luke has his bike. More good news - I taught some random kid a valuable lesson by stealing his bike. Best news - Claire knows nothing. So, I figure I'll just dump the new bike where I stole the first bike. That way, random kid gets his back, and this new bike doesn't raise a lot of embarrassing questions like, "Why I had it?" or "Who boosted who through a bedroom window?" So everybody's happy.

Claire: I mean I don't understand. Why are you trying to sneak around and hide things from me? I actually think it's pretty funny.

Phil: You do?

Claire: I do, yes. I mean, you steal a bike from some poor kid and then the bike gets stolen from you. That's hilarious.

Phil: Classic me, right?

Claire: Yeah! So, where were you when it got stolen?

Phil: Oh, I was getting some gas.

Claire: Uh-huh.

Phil: Yeah.

Claire: You don't stand near the car when you get gas?

Phil: Yep, but, uh, I went inside to get a soda because I was thirsty. And if I had a soda, I wouldn't be thirsty anymore, So I bought one. And then I drank it all right there, which is why I don't have the can.

Claire: Well honey, please let's try to remember that I'm your wife, not your mom, so in the future, you don't need to hide things from me, okay?

Claire: Okay. Okay.

Phil: Ohh! Oh, yeah! You get back here, you!

Claire: What are you doing, Phil?

Phil: I just love you so darn much!

Claire: I know. I love you too, but that hurts.

Phil: Let's get you inside. It is a hot one.

Phil: Hi! I know. That's hurting a lot.

Phil: This is a hot one.

Desiree: Hello! Hi, there!

Phil: Hi, again.

Desiree: I, uh, found your bike.

Phil: Oh, good! At the gas station?

Desiree: No, at my house. One of my neighbors saw it and put it in my garage when you were in my bedroom, so

Phil: Classic me?
