Blacklists
Filed under: Student News, Teacher News, School News
Posted by: @ 10:07 am

Blacklists of schools, agents, teachers, homestay, service and product suppliers

Real Blacklists are lists of complaints of bad experiences by actual users.

Blacklists help consumers understand what can go wrong and what happens when criminals or incompetents help things to go wrong to increase their profits or completely steal money from “customers”.

Normally blacklists are not published - they are traded between groups with similar interests.

Schools will trade information about bad teachers and bad agents to avoid hiring mistakes and losses.

Agents will trade information about bad schools who do not pay and cheat the students.

Students and parents will trade information about bad schools, bad teachers and bad agents.

Teachers have blacklists of agents and schools that do not pay or provide visas or services.

However, adjectives come after the nouns they modify, most often when the verb is a form of the following: be, feel, taste, smell, sound, look, appear and seem.

You can practice your English adjectives with the Sentence Master exercises.

1. In general, music makes people (ADJECTIVES CARD 17).

2. Classical music is very (ADJECTIVES CARD 30), but sometimes makes me (ADJECTIVES CARD 32).

English Classes

Posted by: @ 2:56 pm

English classes can be generalized into many types usually by language skills such as: reading, listening, pronunciation, conversation, grammar and writing. There are also many English language classes for vocabulary.

English Language Pronunciation Class

English language pronunciation includes all the mechanical functions and skills of language sound production and the specific word pronunciation patterns of the English language in context.

The mechanical functions and skills include placement of the lips, tongue, use of teeth, glottis, expanding or contracting the mouth cavity, use of nasal passages and soft palate, vocal folds, controlling the intake and outflow of air, devoicing, breathing and timing.

English language pronunciation class skills and exercises include initial consonant and vowel pronunciation, syllable pronunciation, individual syllable stress patterns, diphthongs and consonant clusters, initial word pronunciation, syllable stress patterns in words, intonation and timing for words, phrases, clauses, complete sentences, expressions and interjections.

English language pronunciation class can take the form of individual drills or group drills by listening and repeating the correct English language pronunciation exercises.

English language pronunciation class can take the form of reading and speaking. Students are expected to read and speak aloud correctly pronouncing each of the words or passages.

Advanced English language pronunciation classes can inlude accent reduction. Accent reduction can be un-learning in-correct pronunciation and re-learning correct English pronunciation. Accent reduction can also be the initial establishment or correction of pronunciation patterns, speed, timing, stress and intonation.

English Conversation Classes tend to be fully integrated practice sessions. The conversation partner can be fellow language students or native speakers or ESL teachers.

The English Conversation Classes can be free-flowing with no corrections or be interrupted for corrections or interrupted for corrections and specific lesson review and then continued.

Some English Conversation Class ESL teachers require their students to write new vocabulary words and some will record the entire conversation class so that the students can play back the entire class to repeat and review all the words and pronunciation.

English Conversation Classes can be practice sessions for casual, informal, gossip, face-to-face and everyday conversations.
