Many students have problems understanding native-English people. There are so many accents to get used to, some people might talk too fast, etc.
Working on listening comprehension can be done through many different ways. We love taking videos on topics that interest our students so that they can learn on topics that really matter to them.
Listen and practice your English
Watch this video from this Australian online channel that we have sent to one of our students who just moved to a new apartment and doesn’t have time to cook.
We thought it would be great for him to watch this cooking channel because it offers recipes that are quick and easy and only have four ingredients.
Listening comprehension questions
During the lesson, the teacher will ask the following questions about the video. Also, to add a grammar point about the past tense, the student will be required to reply in complete sentences in the past tense during the session:
What is a lunchbox?
What kind of bread did she use?
What did she do to the bread?
What did she spread on the bread?
What vegetable did she use as an ingredient?
What was the final ingredient added to the “sushi”?
What expression did she use when she talked about adding this last ingredient?
What did she do to form the “four ingredient lunchbox sushi”?
What other ingredients did she suggest to make different types of “four ingredient lunchbox sushi”?
What does “fantastic on the move” mean?
The receipe to improve your English!
Preparing exercises like this one allows our students to review a topics a few times, at their own pace, and then to get corrected during the 1-to-1 session with his private tutor. Regular lessons and homework are the receipe for improving quickly in English.
