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.

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.

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

Rupert: There she is.

Rebecca: Rupert, what are you doing here?

Rupert: We came to celebrate. Rebecca, Rebecca. Rebecca, Rebecca.

Bex: It's nice to see you again.

Rupert: And this is Ted.

Ted: Howdy.

Rupert: Yeah. Join us for a drink.

Mae: There you go, Rupert. Anything else?

Rupert: A couple more glasses for our friends here. Thank you, Mae. You are as delicious as ever.

Rebecca: Thank you for your invitation, but we're actually here to meet with the Milk sisters.

Rupert: They won't be coming now. I know I'm not allowed an ownership stake in the club, but they were nice enough to sell their minority share to Bex here.

Bex: I always thought I'd finish paying off my student loans before I purchased a football club.

Rupert: Obviously, she needed a little financial aid from yours truly. But, well, when we're married, what's hers will be mine and what's mine... well, that'll stay mine. Because I've learned from you.

Rebecca: You're engaged?

Rupert: So, Rebecca, it's time to be friends again. Especially since Bex and I will be sitting with you every week in that owner's box.

Bex: I'm not going every week.

Rupert: Well, I am.

Ted: So, Rupert, y'all take your darts over here pretty seriously, huh? See what we got here. Hey! There it is.

Rupert: Do you like darts, Ted?

Ted: They're okay. I'm more of a, you know, cornhole man myself. Yeah.

Rupert: How about a game? We could, you know, maybe wager, say, £10,000?

Ted: How about this? If you win, I'll let you pick the starting lineup of the last two games of the season. But if I win, you can't go anywhere near the owner's box, at least not while Rebecca's still in charge.

Rebecca: Ted. What the hell are you doing?

Ted: I believe some folks call it white knighting, but I'm just following my gut here. It's okay.

Rebecca: No. Ted.

Ted: What do you think?

Rupert: You're on.

Ted: Okay.

Rupert: Double in, double out.

Ted: Whatever you say, Rupe-a-dupes. Yeah. Just let me know if I'm winning or losing, all right?

Rupert: I forgot I had these on me.

Ted: Yeah. Wait a second. I forgot I'm left-handed. This is going to be a hoot.

Ted: Mae. What do I need to win?

Mae: Two triple 20s and a bull's-eye.

Rupert: Good luck.

Ted: You know, Rupert, guys have underestimated me my entire life. And for years, I never understood why. It used to really bother me.

Ted: But then one day, I was driving my little boy to school and I saw this quote by Walt Whitman and it was painted on the wall there. It said, "Be curious, not judgmental." I like that.

Ted: So I get back in my car and I'm driving to work, and all of a sudden it hits me. All them fellas that used to belittle me, not a single one of them were curious. They thought they had everything all figured out.

Ted: So they judged everything, and they judged everyone. And I realized that their underestimating me who I was had nothing to do with it. Because if they were curious, they would've asked questions.

Ted: You know? Questions like, "Have you played a lot of darts, Ted?" To which I would've answered, "Yes, sir. Every Sunday afternoon at a sports bar with my father, from age ten till I was 16, when he passed away."

Ted: Barbecue sauce.

Ted: Good game, Rupert.

Bex: Come on, let's go.

Rupert: You are a very lovely consolation prize. Rebecca, Ted, enjoy your evening. Mae, as always.

Rebecca: Holy shit, that felt good.

Ted: That was fun. Yeah. Only one thing left to do now.

Rebecca: What's that? Do I have to? Drinks are on me!
