This weekend is Valentine’s Day, so in preparation let’s look at some useful vocabulary. What do you think the words in the following story mean? Try to guess them and I’ll tell you on Thursday. John met Julie at a Language School, they were in the same class and he started to realise that he had feelings for her,  he thought about it and decided to ask her out! Luckily Julie fancied John too and they went on a date. They began their relationship, but sadly one day after an argument they decided to break up with each other. Hopefully one day soon they will make up, but who knows?!

The January Blues

Feb 03, 2015
Category: Learn English

January seems to have rolled away very quickly and it’s February already! This is good news, a lot of the students in my class have been feeling the cold of the winter months and it’s making them miss their home countries, London can sometimes be grey in the winter. Now that February is here, it’s only one more month until we start to see some signs of Spring and a bit more colour around us. We have a phrase for the sad feeling that people experience in January – it’s called ‘the January Blues’, sometimes we describe people as blue when they are feeling sad. So now hopefully the January Blues …

Pub Quiz

Dec 11, 2014
Do you and your friends have good general knowledge about TV and other things? You should go to a pub quiz! This is quite a traditional thing for English people to do during the week. Go to the pub with your friends, pay 1 or 2 pounds to enter the competition and compete with other teams to see who can answer the most questions correctly – you could even win some money if you come first! Have a look on this website to see if you can find one near you http://www.pubquizzers.com/london/ - but don’t try and use your phone during the quiz, or you’ll get thrown out!!

Now we’re in December and it’s nearly Christmas it’s time to start learning some Christmas songs in English to sing! If you look on YouTube there will be lots of English Christmas songs with the lyrics so you can practise your listening and pronunciation at the same time – perfect! Try, Jingle Bells, We Wish you a Merry Christmas, Do they Know it’s Christmas, The Fairytale of New York, Rocking Around the Christmas Tree and All I Want for Christmas is You (or my two front teeth)! Have fun!

Subtitles in English

Dec 05, 2014
Category: Study tips

How much do you practice or use your English skills outside of the classroom? You should try and do it every day!! It’s really important to find something that you find interesting to do in English, it could be talking to your friends, listening to the radio, watching TV or watching a film, absolutely anything at all! Just remember, if you feel like you have to use subtitles- make sure they’re in English. If you’re not sure how to do this, look at the online television sites from the BBC and Channel 4, or buy an English DVD from the shop. If you watch it with subtitles in your first language i…

I’ve written quite a lot in this blog about different markets around London, but they’re quite a good way of seeing a different part f the city that might not be in your guidebook and isn’t a typical place where tourists go. Columbia Road Flower Market on a Sunday is a great place to go – if you go down at about 2pm you can buy all kinds of beautiful flowers for really cheap prices. And when you’re tired of all the people there’s a great pizza restaurant at the end of the road that does really cheap pizzas – Stingray Café. Have fun!!

Typical English Food?

Nov 27, 2014
What’s the first thing you think of when you imagine a typical English dish? I bet you say fish and chips and English breakfast, well I hope you’ve tried both of those things, but something that’s really popular in England is a curry – in fact most people would say that’s more of a typical thing for an English person to eat! There are curry houses everywhere in London but one of the easiest places to go is Brick Lane. If you’ve already had a curry while you’ve been here, then maybe you should try something else that’s typical – jellied eels..you can go to the pie and mash shop on Chapel Market…
