Cartoons to learn English

One of your mates has given me this link to watch animation videos and you can use them to practise. They speak a bit fast and the level is high (especially for those who are in intermediate level) but it's fun to watch them. This is the link: click here (TheOdd1sOut).

But if what you need is to practice with exam format listening exercises, yu might go to this other link with different topics: click here.

Hope to be useful!

About phrasals

I prefer to speak about multi-word verbs or verbs with particles. However, I showed you in class how to distinguish phrasal verbs and this is useful to know if they are separable or not.

Here you are the link to see a bit more about what I explained in class:
  • For a general explanation: the difference between prepositional and phrasal verbs: click here but if you want to have a much larger explanation, try this.
In my opinion, the best way to study this point of grammar is starting by the particle. There are more particles and more verbs, but here you are some links to start with:
But you can also learn them in alphabetical order; the problem is that eventually you come across a complete dictionary. If you want to have a try, you can go to this link. Another not so depressing list is this one.

The other page you can use is this one which has exercises; don't worry if you don't know all of them. Try it from time to time to remember them: clik here. As I've already told you the best way is to practise with them so here you are a link with exercises and here you find some more and here.

If you want to do more exercises, remember to search them on the Internet: phrasal verbs exercises+B1 or B2, depending on your level.

See you in class!

Some problems with modals (NI1-NI2)

There are some modals which are tricky because their meaning is very similar or because they are different from what we say in Spanish:
