triangle Summary 요약 Resumen [ ? ]


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.)


Esta actividad está diseñada para mejorar la precisión y complejidad de las oraciones. La mayoría de los estudiantes pueden producir las palabras clave del contenido en una oración. Sin embargo, tienen dificultades con la precisión porque las palabras funcionales son difíciles o pueden parecer poco importantes. Esta actividad ayudará a los alumnos a eliminar problemas con estas palabras funcionales al brindarles retroalimentación inmediata sobre los errores que están cometiendo. También ayudará a los estudiantes a desarrollar su uso de estructuras de oraciones más naturales, variadas y complejas.

CONSEJO: Diga la oración en voz alta. Observe los tipos de errores que comete con frecuencia. Concéntrese en ese tipo de errores. (singular / plural, concordancia entre sujeto y verbo, uso del artículo, preposiciones, gerundios e infinitivos, cláusulas sustantivas, cláusulas adjetivas, orden de las palabras y formas de las palabras).


이 액티비티는 문장의 정확성과 복잡성을 개선하기 위해 고안되었습니다. 대부분의 학생들은 문장에서 핵심 내용 단어를 생성 할 수 있습니다. 그러나 기능적 단어가 어렵거나 중요하지 않은 것처럼 보일 수 있기 때문에 정확성에 어려움이 있습니다. 이 액티비티는 학습자가 실수에 대한 즉각적인 피드백을 제공함으로써 이러한 기능적 단어의 문제를 제거하는 데 도움이 됩니다. 또한 학생들이 보다 자연스럽고 다양하며 복잡한 문장 구조를 사용하는 데 도움이 됩니다.

팁 : 문장을 크게 말하세요. 자주 저지르는 실수 유형과, 이러한 유형의 오류에 집중하세요. (단수 / 복수, 주어-동사 일치, 관사 사용, 전치사, 동명사 및 부정사, 명사절, 형용사절, 어순 및 단어 형태)

Directions: Write sentences about the video clip using the words given. You can change the word form or add words, but you cannot change the word order. Use present tense.

triangle Listen & Repeat 듣고 따라하기 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.

Directions: Play the audio clip and try to repeat what you hear. Click "Show" to see the text.

triangle Script 대본 Texto

Ted: All right, fellas. Excuse me.

Beard: Listen up!

Ted: Thank you, Coach. Now, we got Crystal Palace coming here on Saturday. Anything we need to know, Coach?

Beard: Lot of speed on the outside.

Ted: Okay. Anything else?

Beard: Lot of speed.

Ted: Okay, you heard the man. Y'all whipped them up pretty good earlier this year, so me and Coach ain't going to mess with the game plan. But, we would like to start fiddling with the way we do things in the locker room. And if the Internet has taught us anything, it's that sometimes it's easier to speak our minds anonymously. Right? So I asked Nate here to make us a good old-fashioned suggestion box. Hey, look at that.

Nate: Yeah, did it with my niece. She loves crafts.

Ted: Yeah. I love glimpses into your personal life. This is lovely.

Ted: So, if anything's got y'all hot and bothered, just go ahead and drop us a note. You could have issue with the color of the towels or, heck, the food in the vending machine. Sound good? Okay, great. See y'all tomorrow.

Roy: Oi. We're middle of the table, we've lost three of four, and you wanna know if the snacks in the locker room are tasty enough?

Ted: Are they?

Roy: Jesus Christ.

Jamie: They are not.

Beard: Sam's down in every stat since Nigeria. Maybe the Premiership's too much for him.

Ted: No, he just needs to get a little more comfy here, that's all.

Beard: He turns 20 on Saturday.

Ted: There we go. A birthday. We'll do something special for him. Nudge that ship in the right direction, yeah?

Ted: Hey. Let's see what we got here. "Wanker." Let's see what else we got. "Piss off, wanker." "I hope you choke on a Big Mac."

Beard: Good thing these are anonymous.

Ted: No, Roy signed that one.

Ted: Here's a good one. "Shower pressure is rubbish." Make a note of that. "Wanker." Yep. I'm not going to say that word out loud. Another "wanker."

Woman: You don't want to let them call you a wanker, Ted. It's bad.

Ted: What's a wanker?

Ted: I'm a visual learner, so that's very helpful. Thank you.

Woman: My pleasure.

Ted: Boy, that is bad. Somebody ought to check this thing's prostate. Jeez.

Ted: Hey, Sam. You have got to pop upstairs real quick. Higgins wants to talk to you. Move it, move it.

Nate: Yep, yep. He's gone, he's gone.

Ted: Hey. Yo, hey, guys. Listen up, listen up. Okay, Sam's birthday is on Saturday. So I was thinking we'd all chip in and get him something nice. Nice gift or something. Right?

Ted: So, Nate's gonig to be coming around with yet another impressive box. Look at this. It's got a face!

Nate: He has a face.

Ted: Sorry, it. He. He. You put the money in his mouth.

Ted: Okay, you hear that, y'all? Got it? Okay, good. Go get them, Nate. Okay? Help him out.

Nate: All right. Lovely. Thanks, Colin. You put the money in his mouth.

Jamie: Yummy for you. It's spearmint. Make the money smell nice.

Nate: Thank you, Jamie. That's incredibly thoughtful.

Ted: Hey, Jamie. Real quick. Just wanna have a chat. Did you put gum in the box there?

Jamie: Yeah. Yeah.

Ted: Now, why did you go and do that?

Jamie: Sorry, Coach.

Ted: Nate's just trying to help us out here. He's part of the team, right?

Yeah, right, Coach. Yeah, yeah. And I see this team like a band.

Ted: I love that.

Jamie: And if we were the Rolling Stones, I'd be Mick Jagger because I'm the front man. I got the moves.

Ted: Got a tiny waist, yeah. The whole bit. I get it.

Jamie: And Roy would be Keith Richards, because he's old and everyone's surprised he ain't dead yet.

Roy: What the fuck are you saying?

Jamie: Roy, mate, if you're going to go to the shower, you should take your sweater off first, pal.

Jamie: I'm just taking the piss, mate. I'll be better. Promise.

Ted: Glad to hear it.
