Summary

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.)

Resumen

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.

CONSEJO: Diga la oración en voz alta. Observe los tipos de errores que comete con frecuencia. Concéntrese en ese tipo de errores.

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.

Chief: Alright folks. Nothing to see here. Just a small group of people defying the laws of gravity. Hook them, boys.

Willy: That's the Hoverchoc, sir. That's the point.

Officer: I'm afraid we've had some complaints about you, sir.

Willy: Complaints?

Officer: That you're disrupting the trade of other businesses. I'm regrettably obliged to move you on and to confiscate your earnings.

Willy: Hey! What are you doing?

Officer 2: Don't worry, it's going to a good cause. Sick kids, or something.

Officer: Sorry, sir. Rules is rules.

Wonka: Could you at least leave me a sovereign? I need to pay for my room.

Officer: Here.

Wonka: Thank you.


Scrubitt: Evening, Mr. Wonka. How did it go?

Wonka: Not quite as well as I'd hoped.

Scrubitt: Oh, shame. But I'm afraid we do have to settle up now.

Wonka: Well, thankfully, the room is taken care of. I believe we said a sovereign.

Scrubitt: For the room, yes. But you have incurred a few extras during the course of your residency with ourselves.

Wonka: Have I?

Scrubitt: Yes, you have. There was that glass of gin you had on arrival. And if I remember rightly, you warmed your cockles by the fire.

Bleacher: He did indeed, Mrs. Scrubitt.

Scrubitt: Cocklewarming is extra, see?

Bleacher: (He) Used the stairs to get to his room, and all.

Scrubitt: Oh, then you've got your stair charge, and that is per step, I'm afraid. Up and down. Now, tell me, Mr. Wonka, did you happen to use the minibar?

Wonka: There's a minibar?

Bleacher: Minibar of soap.

Scrubitt: By the sink.

Wonka: I might have, briefly.

Scrubitt: See? Even Bleacher knows you never touch the minibar, and he was raised in a ditch. Add in your mattress hire, your linen lease, and your pillow penalty, and you are looking at ten thousand sovereigns.

Wonka: You've got to be kidding me?

Scrubitt: It's all in the small print, dearie.

Wonka: I don't have ten thousand sovereigns.

Bleacher: Then we have a problem, Mr. Wonka.

Scrubitt: You're going have to work it off in the wash house, ain't ya? At a sovereign a day.

Wonka: Ten thousand days is...

Scrubitt: Twenty-seven years.

Bleacher: Four months.

Scrubitt: And 16 days.


Abacus: Ah, you must be Mr. Wonka.

Wonka: Who are you?

Abacus: Abacus Crunch, chartered accountant. At least, I was. Now, uh...

Piper: He runs the place. And you'd best do as he says, or you'll answer to me. Piper Benz. Plumber by trade.

Abacus: This is Miss Lottie Bell.

Miss Bell: Hi.

Piper: She don't talk much.

Larry: And I'm Larry Chucklesworth! Comedian.

Wonka: They got all of you, too, did they?

Abacus: I'm afraid so. We each of us found ourselves in need of a cheap place to stay, and neglected to read the small print.

Piper: One moment of stupidity, followed by endless regret.

Larry: Sounds like my third marriage. I'm sorry, I do that a lot.

Abacus: He does.

Piper: A lot.

Larry: I've only been married once, and it didn't work out.

Willy: There's got to be some way out of here.

Piper: You don't think we've tried?

Wonka: There are bars on the window, and there's a dog on the door.

Abacus: And even if you could get out, that contract is watertight.

Piper: If you're not here at roll call, Mrs. Scrubitt will call the police, they'll bring you right back, and she'll charge you a thousand for the inconvenience.

Abacus: All right, everybody. Back to work. Come along, Mr. Wonka. You come with me. You're in here on suds.
