ENGLISH GRAMMAR for BEGINNERS
Many English learners either start studying English in classrooms or plan to eventually study in a school or a college. Knowing words for basic things in the classroom can help you relax and be confident while you’re there.
This cartoon video shows you common objects like a blackboard or a textbook, which you’ll find in all classrooms. The video also shows you the spelling of every word while speaking it aloud. That means you can use this video for basic reading practice along with vocabulary building.
When to Use “Good” vs. “Well”
This easy English lesson focuses on a very specific vocabulary topic: the difference between “well” and “good.”
This is a topic that often confuses even native English speakers!
When someone asks you how you’re doing, what do you say?
There are two common answers:
“I am good.”
“I am well.”
Since these answers are often used interchangeably, many English learners assume that both words have the same meaning. However, the word “good” is an adjective, which means that it’s used to describe or modify a noun. The word “well” is an adverb and it modifies a verb.
This difference becomes clear in other sentences. We say that a pizza is “good,” not “well.” And one can only sing “well,” not “good.”
This video will explain the difference between “I am good” and “I am well,” plus how to use both words in several other contexts.
The environment is the natural world as a whole. We can talk about the environment of the planet or of a specific place. In this lesson, we get to learn the most commonly used English words for this topic.
Since the world is going through a massive environmental crisis, this topic has become quite common in daily conversation. Although the words themselves sound technical and academic, native English speakers use them in informal and causal contexts, too.
For instance, you’ll see many companies use the word sustainability in their ads. The phrase green movement is also very popular now, since some political parties have also adopted this label to describe themselves.
This video lesson will walk you through the essential environmental vocabulary you need for conversations on such topics.Lessons on English Numbers Numbers are relatively easy to learn since they can only be used in certain ways. Their meaning remains constant and generally doesn’t change from culture to culture.
This makes it very easy to translate and understand the names of the numbers from your language to English. Plus, even if math isn’t taught in English in many countries, the basic English names of the numbers still might be introduced.
But numbers are also harder to remember because their meaning often isn’t tied to the context of a sentence. These easy lessons are the perfect way for beginners to start learning numbers in English.
