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.

Haley: All right, I\'m going to the mall.

Claire: Um, we need to talk, honey. We\'re worried about you. You haven\'t heard back from the college that wait-listed you, and all the rest of your friends have. And now you\'re just wasting time at the mall.

Haley: For your information, I\'ve already filled out and dropped off my community college application. And plus also I\'m going to the mall because I have a job interview.

Phil: What?

Claire: Really?

Haley: My guidance counselor suggested I take a gap year. You know, a year between high school and college were you take some courses, have some life experiences, and get inspired. And obviously, work at the GAP.

Haley: You\'re never going to believe it! You\'re never going to believe it! You\'re never going to believe it! Guess who got a job! I did! Oh, shoot. I just told you.

Phil: That\'s amazing!

Claire: Oh! Honey, congratulations! You got a job! And what is all this?

Haley: I stopped by the grocery store to get some stuff for dinner.

Claire: You know where the grocery store is? Yes, mother.

Haley: I\'m celebrating by making dinner for me and Dylan tonight. Would you and dad like to join us?

Claire: What\'s happening?

Phil: I don\'t know.

Haley: Tonight at dinner, I\'m telling my parents the biggest news of all. After graduation, I\'m moving in with someone.

Dylan: And his name is me.

Haley: Oh, no, no, no! We got this. We\'ll clean.

Claire: You\'re cleaning up? What kind of day is this? Cam and Mitch get a new son, we get a new daughter.

Haley: That was really fun, you guys.

Dylan: Yeah, and next time, let\'s do it at our place.

Luke: I\'m in. Just give me a heads-up.

Claire: "Our place"? What? What?

Haley: Um, well, since I have a job now and I\'m going to community college, uh, Dylan and I were thinking that, you know, we would get an apartment together.

Claire: What?

Luke: Are you doing sex?

Phil: Luke, can we have a minute, please?

Dylan: Listen, I know that you\'re concerned, but I\'m designing t-shirts now, and they\'re going to be huge. Also medium and small.

Claire: Dylan, would you excuse us for a moment so we can talk to Haley?

Dylan: Sure, but you stay. I\'ll go.

Haley: I don\'t see why I can\'t do this. I\'m totally getting my life together.

Claire: Uh, allow me, if you will, to paint an accurate picture of this life you think you want, okay? At first, it\'s a blast-- Buying a dish rack, hanging a sheet up to turn one room into two.

Phil: Allen-wrenching a bookcase called a Nurnk because you couldn\'t afford the Sklurg.

Claire: But then, then those bills start rolling in, so you gotta pick up some extra shifts. And suddenly … uh-oh, what\'s that? You\'re pregnant. And you\'re stressed and exhausted.

Claire: You\'ve got a garage filled with unsold huge t-shirts. And, honey, if you think this kind of stress is not going to take its toll on that body and that face, think again. Good-bye, beautiful skin. Farewell, silky hair.

Claire: And hello, Alex\'s hand-me-downs \'cause you can\'t afford to shop.

Phil: Good one.

Claire: Listen, the point is, the choices you make today...

Haley: No, no, the point is, is that it doesn\'t have to turn out so bad.

Dylan: She\'s right. It doesn\'t. Luke?

Luke: This came yesterday.

Claire: What is it?

Dylan: It\'s from that college. You got in, Haley.

Claire: Oh, my God. You got into college?

Phil: What?! That\'s amazing! Oh!

Claire: It came yest-- Yesterday? Luke, why were you hiding this?

Luke: I don\'t know.

Phil: Do you not want her to go to college?

Luke: I don\'t care.

Haley: Aw! You\'re going to miss me!

Luke: Shut up! I am not! I\'m never telling you anything again.

Dylan: Sorry, little dude, but she\'s gotta go to college, even if that means that she can\'t live with me.
