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.)

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.

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

Instrucciones: Reproduce el clip de audio e intenta repetir lo que escuchas. Haga clic en "Show" para ver el texto.

Instrucciones: Reproduzca el clip de audio e intente repetir lo que escucha. Haga clic en "Mostrar" para ver el texto.

Emily: Madeline, you're in Adweek.

Madeline: What? Where?

Emily: Right here, under "Movers and Shakers. Chicago-based Gilbert Group expands international portfolio with acquisition of French luxury marketing company Savoir. Gilbert Group vet, Madeline Wheeler, named director of marketing for Franco firm."

Madeline: Yes! I am here to prove that a master's in French does not go to waste.

Emily: This is going to be amazing for you.

Madeline: I have been dreaming of moving to Paris forever. I mean, French men, they love older women, you know? Look at their president. He's young. He's hot. He married his schoolteacher.

Emily: Oh, I just emailed you my thoughts on the presentation for the new IBS drug. It's a social initiative to add meditation to your medication. If you like it, you can pitch it later. Uh, you know, for your last hurrah.

Madeline: I want you to pitch it.

Emily: Seriously?

Madeline: Seriously. The client has to start getting comfortable with you.

Emily: Well, I don't want to step on your toes.

Madeline: You're not. You're stepping into my shoes. And you're ready, okay? This is an opportunity for both of us. Come here. Try this.

Emily: What is it?

Madeline: De L'Heure. It's the latest fragrance from Maison Lavaux.

Emily: Mmmm.

Madeline: I'll be handling them, their account in Paris. What do you think?

Emily: It's like wearing poetry.

Madeline: I'm going to use that.

Emily: Hm.

Madeline: Oh, that smells really... Does that smell weird to you?

Emily: No, just floral.

Madeline: I'm going to be sick. I'm going to be sick.

Emily: Oh. Oh.

Doug: Can we get a couple of beers here?

Emily: White wine, actually. Anything French if you have it.

Waitress For sure.

Emily: I have some crazy news. Madeline is pregnant.

Doug: Madeline?

Emily: Mm-hm.

Doug: Like, your boss, Madeline? I thought she was too old to get pregnant.

Emily: Well, so did she. Until she got completely nauseous sniffing this perfume she was planning to promote. She went to the doctor this afternoon.

Emily: But now that she's pregnant, she's decided she's not going to take the job in Paris.

Doug: So, there goes your promotion?

Emily: Not exactly. They still need someone there. Like American eyes and ears to help with the whole transition. So they asked me if I would take the job for a year.

Doug: What? In Paris?

Emily: They said that if I did that they'd guarantee me senior brand manager when I'm back.

Doug: Huh.

Emily: So, the apartment there is already all set up, and there's a relocation bonus. And just to explore the idea, here's a spreadsheet I made for the next year. Weeks when you might be able to come to Paris, times I can come back to Chicago, taking into consideration vacation and sick days.

Doug: Wait. You're serious?

Emily: I know it's crazy, but when will we get a chance like this? It'll be an adventure.

Doug: Unless I missed something, you don't speak French.

Emily: You look worried.

Doug: Oh, I'm not worried. It's the French who should be worried.
