Hello again.

I have been continuing my work writing new exercises that work on almost all computers, tablets and phones. I have two units for you today:

Could

I hope you enjoy them.

If we use 'could' in reply to these requests, it suggests that we do not really want to do it. If you agree to the request, it is better to say 'can'. Of course I can. I could help you if it's really necessary but I'm really busy right now. I could lend you some money but I'd need it back ...

Hello again.

Here is the final part of our work on telephoning. As usual, this listening should work on all computers but may not work on your tablet or phone.

http://www.englishallyear.com/listening18/menu.php

Today is Saint Patrick's Day, a major celebration to Irish people around the world. It is slightly different for me this year as I recently discovered that my great-grandfather and predecessors came from Ireland. He died in the workhouse in Dublin, where many poor and sick people ended up. However, when Scotland play Ireland at rugby next weekend, I will still be supporting Scotland :-)

 Hello again.

In today's exercise, we are continuing our look at Meetings.

http://www.englishallyear.com/listening12/menu.php


I got a lot of very interesting replies to my question about the Internet. Most people, like me, would find it very hard to live a few weeks without it. However, it is good to see that there are still people who are not addicts .-)

I have been down with a bug for the last few days and my eyes are not good so I won't write any more today

I am always pleased to hear from you. I rarely have the time to write back but I love hearing about your lives in parts of the world that I may never visit

 Hello again.

I have some listening exercises for you today. They are to do with the language of Meetings.

http://www.englishallyear.com/listening10/menu.php

I am really busy. I have just got back from a meeting in London and I am just about to go look after my father for a few days. My meeting went really well and I got to spend an evening with my son. But I find the pace of London too fast for me these days. My favourite activity in London is now to sit on a bus and look at the world go by.

I will write more next week.

Hello again.

I have a new listening activity for you. This is to do with numbers and quantities.

http://www.englishallyear.com/listening19/menu.php

This exercise will not work on all phones and tablets. However, I have started to rework some of my existing teaching material to work with everything and so I have two experimental units which should now work quite happily on most modern phones and tablets :

Can

It's a miserable day here. Three months worth of rain fell last Sunday and the forecast is just as bad for today. My cats and I are sheltering from the storm.

 Hello again.

I have some listening activities for you that show the difference between the infinitive and the -ing form.

http://www.englishallyear.com/listening13/menu.php


We get a lot of sunshine here on the border with Spain. When you look at the weather forecast for France as a whole, Perpignan is often the warmest city, particularly in winter. However, there is a downside to this, the very strong winds. In the last few days, the wind has been very strong and it has been causing a lot of problems. For instance, some airplanes had problems landing at Perpignan airport and had to be diverted.

But the other evening I was very pleased that the wind was blowing so hard. There was a big forest fire just to the south of me. (It may well have been the wind that caused the fire by knocking over an electric pylon, nobody is too sure.) Luckily with the wind coming from the north, it kept the fire away from my village. Eighty fire-crew were fighting the blaze all night.

 Hello again.

In today's lesson, we have some listening concerned with Meetings.

http://www.englishallyear.com/listening11/menu.php

I have been absent for a while. This is partly because I have been travelling but mainly because I have had big problems with my Internet connection. I was able to read my email through my phone but I have only been able to see the Web when I have visited friends.

It was probably a good thing as I think I have become addicted to going online. For the first few days without Internet, I was extremely upset. I think a lot of people are like that these days. Could you live without the Internet for a week?
