triangle Sentence Building (Summary) 문장 만들기 Construção de sentença Construcción de oraciones [ ? ]


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.

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.

triangle Script 대본 Roteiro Texto

Ted: Crystal Palace kicked our booties last week. And this here, is our current offense that we are running, and I think it stinks! Get rid of it.

Ted: Now, you might be wondering why'd I draw all that up there just to erase it. And that is because I believe in symbolic gestures.

Nate: As do I.

Ted: What time did you get home last night?

Nate: Didn't.

Ted: Really? Now, look, our whole offense right now is all give-and-go. Give the ball to Jamie and everyone else can go to hell. So, I am officially on the prowl for any new ideas, you hear?

Ted: You got something, Nate?

Nate: No. So... No. No. God, no. Never mind, I'm sorry.

Ted: Come on now. You're one of us. Let's go. Fire away. What do you got?

Nate: Okay, right. Well, it's just... No, other pocket. It's just something that I thought of. Sorry. Jesus. Not that one. You know what, it's not even very good. It's probably really bad. It's embarrassing even. I just...

Ted: Sorry, Nate. I have a real tricky time hearing folks that don't believe in themselves. I'm going to ask you real quick again. Do you think this idea will work?

Nate: Yeah, I do.

Ted: Why you screaming at us, Nate? We're right here. All right, come on now. Walk us through it.

Nate: Okay. So, I thought if we started the attack on the wing, Jamie could run through nearside, then when the defense follows, Sam could fill his spot.

Ted: So, use Jamie as a decoy?

Nate: No. No. Well, yeah, in... Yeah, in this case, yes.

Ted: Let's give it a shot.

Nate: What, you're going to use my play?

Ted: Yeah. I mean, we're going to try it on, see if it fits. You know, it might not. Then again, it might be a very flattering silhouette, and I might wear it right out of the store.

Ted: There you go.

Rebecca: Thank you. So, I spoke to the owner of The Sun.

Ted: You spoke to God?

Rebecca: No, the newspaper.

Ted: Oh, right.

Rebecca: And he has agreed to not run the photo of you and Keeley.


Rebecca: Yes. Okay, thank you, Ted.

Ted: Sorry. Yeah, no. You were saying. Go ahead.

Rebecca: In exchange, I've agreed for his more reputable newspaper, The Independent, to do a profile on you. "One-on-One with Coach Lasso."

Ted: Yeah, okay.

Rebecca: The writer will be Trent Crimm. And he's very good, and the supporters really listen to him.

Ted: Oh, no. I know Trent, yeah. He's a tough cookie.

Rebecca: Really?

Ted: Yeah, but that's okay. You know what you do with tough cookies, don't ya?

Rebecca: No.

Ted: Dip them in milk.

Ted: All right, let's run that new one. Hey, there he is.

Trent: Hello, Coach Ted Lasso from America.

Ted: Hello, Trent Crimm from The Independent. Hey, excited to spend the day with ya. It is going to be fun. And please, call me Ted. All right, let's go!

Ted: Wide open. Yeah! Snuck it by him. Thataway, Sammy. How'd that feel?

Sam: Oh, wonderful, Coach. I felt that one in my penis.

Ted: Yeah. No, that sounds about right. That's good. Yeah. Hey, Jamie, you gotta sell that run-through hard, baby. Make the defense believe you. Watch, like this. Ball! Ball! Give me the ball! I want the ball! Give me the ball! I would like the ball, please!

Ted: Make it a performance. I want you winning an Oscar at the ESPYs next year.

Jamie: You want me to run decoy?

Ted: Yeah, that's right.

Jamie: It's a joke. Unfortunately for you, though, no one thinks it's funny.

Ted: Is that true?

Roy: Agree to disagree. I find it hilarious.

Ted: All right, fellas, let's run it again. Let's go.

Roy: Cheers.

Ted: Yeah, they're getting it. They're getting it.

Trent: Interesting play, Ted. Did you come up with this?

Ted: Oh, no, no, no. This is all cooked up by our very own Nate the Great.

Trent: Who's "Nate the Great"?

Ted: Oh, yeah. There he is.

Nate: Someone's been walking their dog here. Found another poo.

Ted: Okay.

Trent: What exactly does "Nate the Great" do?

Ted: I'm not exactly sure what his title is. Hey, Coach. What is Nate's job around here?

Beard: Kit man.

Ted: There you go. Kit man.

Trent: Do you mean to tell me you're entrusting a Premier League team's attack to the kit man?
