OU Grapheme – American English

The“OU” Grapheme The 10 Different Pronunciations of “ou” Today, we’re gonna, not only take a look at but learn … What makes learning English so hard And, this is only one aspect of what makes learning English so hard… Inconsistency will be our keyword for this lesson The dichotomy is pronunciation and spelling The dichotomy between English spelling and pronunciation is different Mastering English requires abilities that most children don’t develop until they’re pre-teens. And, that is a fact for natives, so, it’s 10x as hard for ESL and EFL students Don’t let these “show you in one YouTube lesson“ videos fool you In order to really think, spell or build your confidence in speaking English, you’re gonna have to live in an English-speaking country for at least a year or two. With language, there is a HUGE cultural string attached to understanding it Americans tend to be consistent across the board socially, but unfortunately, the spelling and pronunciation are inconsistent So, keep this in mind:There are exceptions in the[e] English language and English is chock full of exceptions and inconsistencies And, sometimes, English doesn’t follow a logical pattern So, just keep that in mind for this lesson And, with that being said… Let’s Dive In #english

Speaking Practice – Connected Speech

Speaking Practice – Connected Speech

Speaking practice in English using connected speech. Speaking and listening. This video is to get ESL speakers acclimated to connected speech in English. Since ESL speakers can’t go around asking every native English speaker to “please speak more slowly[sic]” That’s just not natural. ESL speakers, especially adults are just going to have to learn the language and listen a bit faster.

Do vs Play Collocations: How to Choose the Right Word

Do vs Play Collocations: How to Choose the Right Word

Do vs Play Collocations: How to Choose the Right Word As you should know by now that different types of athletes have different titles. Someone who does judo is very different from someone who does baseball or someone who runs. Sometimes as an ESL student, you can easily fall into the trap of labeling every athlete a player. My new students do it a lot!They’ll maybe ask me, “do you play boxing?” I always retort quickly,”you don’t play boxing”; “boxing is a violent sport”: “you don’t play violent sports.” Because, in the Japanese language, everything is “shimasu” or play.sports-related. So, like I mentioned before, you’ll get questions from students, like, “do you play boxing/kendo/karate” and Even questions like “do you play ski/swimming/running.” I then have to go to my sports lesson. Gotta bust out my sports flashcards with the verbs written on top of each sports card, so they can quickly read and absorb the information. It takes some time to get them acclimated and into a routine of using different verbs for different sports. But, if they are serious,and want to learn, they make sure they absorb the information. So, as usual… Let’s Dive In #collocations #commoncollocations

Which vs That – What’s The Difference?

Which vs That – What’s The Difference?

That vs. Which Brought to you by The American School of English, International Located in Kashihara, Nara, Japan Let’s Dive Right In! If you’re confused about that vs. which don’t fret. It’s one of the most common topics people are curious about. Here’s the deal! The word “that” is used when you’re talking about a specific thing. Cars that have big engines are fast! If we remove “that,” the meaning of the sentence completely changes. “Which” is used to add information to a sentence. Cars, which have big engines, are fast. If you leave out the part of the sentence with which the meaning of the sentence won’t change. Cars are fast. that -used with restrictive clauses which=used with non-restrictive clauses. (rc)The car that is blue is hers. (nrc)The car, which is blue, is hers. (nrc)The car is hers. If we remove the which clause the meaning of the sentence doesn’t change. Which clauses need commas *, , That clauses don’t need commas You’ll often see British writers using either which or that not depending on whether the clause is essential or nonessential but simply because they feel like it. And, if you’re an American working in the Japanese school system, which goes by an American English standard, you’ll notice that textbooks here use the British way of using which and that! And, that is because they choose the path of least resistance, the easiest path.
