triangle Summary 요약 Construção de sentença 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.

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.

Announcer: We are moments away from Crystal Palace facing AFC Richmond and their new manager, Ted Lasso. While on the pitch, all eyes will surely be on young phenom, Jamie Tartt.

Ted: All right, fellas, here we go. Here we go. Coach, you got any last words?

Beard: Speed on the outside.

Ted: Speed on the outside. You heard the man. That's all we got for you, except for one thing. And that's Happy Birthday, Sam!

Sam: Hey, man, you guys got me Chin Chin. Wow, this is all I used to eat growing up.

Ted: We know you haven't been home in a while, so we thought we'd bring some home to you.

Sam: You guys, man.

Ted: Hey. Happy Birthday, Sam.

Sam: Thank you, Coach.

Ted: We got a few things in there for you.

Sam: Coach, what's this?

Ted: Well, my little boy gave me a whole bunch of these. You know, help keep me safe while I'm away. I miss him, you know.

Sam: My dad used to, always used to pinch my earlobes for good luck.

Jamie: Give me a fucking break. Sorry, Coach.

Sam: Coach, is it okay if I don't keep this? I don't really have the same fondness for the American military that you do.

Ted: Oh. Sure. Right. Imperialism. Right. Yeah.

Sam: Imperialism. Thank you, Coach. Thank you.

Ted: All right, fellas. Let's get out there and show Crystal Palace whose house this is, right?

Crowd: Wanker! Wanker! Wanker!

Announcer: For the people at home, we do apologise for the fruity language.

Ted: We got 90 minutes to prove them wrong, yeah?

Beard: Let's give it a shot.

Announcer: Here we go.

Announcer: And there you go. It's an inauspicious start to the Ted Lasso era. Richmond looked disjointed, uninspired, and, you have to say, joyless. Palace win and Richmond lose 4-1. The only bright spot being the defensive play of Sam Obisanya.

Jamie: Only bright spot? Without me, it would've been 4-0, you miserable old pricks.

Announcer: And a meaningless consolation goal for Jamie Tartt in injury time.

Jamie: Thank you!

Ted: Jamie. Real quick.

Announcer: Regarding Jamie Tartt, it was an insignificant goal by the Manchester City loanee, but he celebrated like he'd just won the World Cup.

Ted: I haven't known you that long, but I can honestly say you are the best athlete I have ever coached.

Jamie: Wow. Yeah. I mean, I work hard, yeah.

Ted: I see it. You are truly great at everything you do out there. Except for one thing.

Jamie: My left foot cross?

Ted: No. Jamie, I think that you might be so sure that you're one in a million, that sometimes you forget that out there, you're just one of eleven. And if you just figure out some way to turn that "me" into "us", the sky's the limit for you.

Ted: That was a heck of a goal out there, by the way.

Jamie: Thanks.

Announcer: Richmond falls to 13th place.

Roy: That was fucking embarrassing!

Nate: I am equally livid. Oh, my God.

Player: Didn't know he had it in him.

Roy: Good lad!
