  • Academic Terms and Vocabulary - AIRC162

    · Aprende ingles con inglespodcast de La Mansión del Inglés-Learn English Free

    Today on Aprender Inglés con Reza y Craig, do we say ‘make an exam’ or ‘do an exam’? What’s the difference between a master’s degree and a bachelor’s degree? We talk about Academic terms and vocabulary on this week’s show. Voice message from Igor from San Sebastian Books we recommend and writers we like? Bill Bryson - https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Bryson  We're sorry there's only only 90 seconds on the Speakpipe service https://www.speakpipe.com/inglespodcast  (attach mp3 file to an email) As poor podcasters, we can’t afford more than 90 seconds! Ernest Hemingway - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ernest_Hemingway   Neil Gaiman (short fiction, novels, comic books) The Sandman, American Gods, The Graveyard Book - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_Gaiman   Graded readers (or read a book in Spanish first and then read the original) Comics Lord of The Rings, Harry Potter, Batman, Spiderman What are you favourite authors and genres? What are you reading at the moment? Voice message from Ivan from Valencia X”I’d like to point out how useful have your podcasts been for me.”X (.....your podcasts have been for me. Not a question, so not question word order.) I beg you to….. It’s messy in my mind Pronunciation - ‘title’ ACADEMIC TERMS We looked at some useful academic vocabulary in episode 87: http://www.inglespodcast.com/2016/01/24/academic-english-vocabulary-airc87/  Here are a few more expressions: To do/sit/take an exam To redo/resit/retake an exam (if you fail first time round!) - to do resits To do a degree in ___________ eg. I’m doing a degree in Physics at Oxford (University) (A career = a long-term profession/job, NOT a degree. eg. Peter had a 30-year career as a policeman until he retired.) Higher education (HE) = university (UK)/college (USA) level education Further education (FE) = education after leaving school, eg. a technical college, an agricultural college, a catering college, etc. Tertiary education = anything after Primary then Secondary education = FE or HE There are four main degree levels: associate, bachelors, masters, and doctorate. Associate Degrees 2-year courses for things like nursing, graphic design and other vocational areas. - community colleges and technical schools. Completing an associate degree program qualify you to get a job. The most common degrees available at the associate level include: Associate of Arts (A.A.) Associate of Science (A.S.) Associate of Applied Science (AAS) Bachelor's Degrees Undergraduate program - 4 years usually - major area of study, such as finance, history, communications or biology. Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) Bachelor of Science (B.S./B.Sc.) Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) Master's Degrees Master's degree programs are graduate programs that let you specialize in an area of study. Usually take 1-2 years to complete. Many master's degree programs need you to write a thesis for graduation. Master of Arts (M.A.) Master of Science (M.S./M.Sc.) Master of Business Administration (MBA) Master of Fine Arts (MFA) Doctoral Degrees Doctoral degree programs, also known as Ph.D. programs, are the most advanced type of degree program available. Admittance may require individuals to hold a master's degree, although several programs accept candidates who only hold bachelor's degrees. Completing a Ph.D. program usually takes several years, and often involves the completion of a dissertation and a major research project. Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) For a fairly exhaustive list of useful academic expressions to write academic English at university level, try the Academic Phrase Bank compiled by Dr. John Morley:: http://www.kfs.edu.eg/com/pdf/2082015294739.pdf  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qualification_types_in_the_United_Kingdom http://www.macmillandictionary.com/thesaurus-category/british/degrees-and-other-academic-qualifications  Email from Ana Perez Hello Reza and Craig: I want to thank you for your job, I've just passed the FCE and you had helped me a lot. I usually go to work listening to your podcasts even now because I want to go on improving my English. I'm 52 years old and I don't need it for my job but I love it since I was child (I’ve loved it). I'm looking for something to practice my speaking ability, but all what (that/ O) I find such as total inmersión (immersion) is too expensive. Do you know something else? By the way, your voices are very very nice. Thank you for everything, Kisses, Ana You could sign up for an online service like italki and pay an online teacher.

  • Personal Space - AIRC161

    · Aprende ingles con inglespodcast de La Mansión del Inglés-Learn English Free

    How important is personal space and body language when you are communicating? What’s the difference between alone, by myself and on my own? All this and more in this week’s episode of…..Aprender Inglés con Reza y Craig. Las notas del episodio y más podcasts para mejorar tu ingles están en: http://www.inglespodcast.com/  Shownotes and more podcasts to improve your English at: http://www.inglespodcast.com/  Email from Alberto from Granada who is transcribing episodes for us I saw recently a British TV drama called “The Fall”, starring Gillian Anderson, which is set in Northern Ireland. Don’t know if you’ve seen it, but I totally recommend it. I really loved the Northern Irish accent, you know, like every sentence is a question and the tone rises at the end. I found it very funny. Could you please ask Reza to do some Northern Irish accent for me, pleaseeee? I would really enjoy it! Alberto Voice message from Jesus from Valencia about subtitles when watching films and TV series Jesus is another AIRCoholic) “I’ve been studying English my whole life” / “I’ve been taking it seriously since…./for the last year and a half.” Pronunciation of ‘searched’ only ‘t’ and ‘d’ sounds for the ‘ed’ ending (started, landed, farted, painted, needed, decided, waited) I watch A BUNCH of movies Dependant XaboutX - ON Mamen from Biescas On my own / by myself / alone / lonely ‘On my own’ - when you do stuff without help - “I painted the flat on my own”, “I fixed my bike on my own.” ‘By myself’ usually describes a situation, not when you do something. https://quizlet.com/es   https://www.memrise.com/   https://www.duolingo.com/   Voice message from Miguel (Michael) who doesn’t have a dog. He has a baby and a cat. English people are very ‘close moved’ or ‘separative’ (stand-offish, aloof, distant, remote, detached, impersonal, withdrawn, reserved, uncommunicative, unforthcoming, unapproachable, unfriendly, unsociable, cool, chilly, cold, haughty, disdainful, uninvolved, unresponsive, indifferent, unconcerned, introverted) They guard their personal space. Would you sit at a table that was already taken in a crowded bar or cafe if there were empty seats? Which cultures need a lot of personal space? Which nationalities don’t necessarily need a lot of personal space? How important is body language when you are communicating? Should you kiss an English woman when you are introduced to her for the first time? How important is a handshake? - Should you get the upper hand? TED Talk by Allan Pease: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZZ7k8cMA-4  Documentary on body language: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kY1K_IefjSA  Do you kiss and hug men that you are close to? What other cultural differences can you think of between the Spanish and the English? - meal times and business hours - siesta - eating & drinking habits - Christmas and New Year - politeness & directness - tutting (to say no) and hissing (to get someone’s attention) - customer service ...and now it's your turn to practise your English.

Keep on rocking! Email from Antonio from Badajoz Hi Reza and Craig! It's Antonio again with another question for you. Watching movies in original version, I've realised that a lot of times, I can hear the expression "How would you like...?" followed, for example, by either "a punch in the nose", or "being left by a woman that way" or something like that. I gather it's some kind of complaint or threat, but, since I can't entirely get my head round it. I'd love you guys to shed light on that if you please. Thanks in advance! hugs from Badajoz! 1. For offering someone something that you think they will enjoy. How would you like a glass of wine? How would you like a free T-shirt? 2. For telling someone to consider how they would feel if something bad happened to them, especially if it has already happened to you. How would you like a punch on the nose? (threat) How would you like someone stealing your mobile phone? How would you like it if I spilled beer on your trousers and didn't even apologise? How would you like being left by a woman in that way? Comment on the blog about the farming episode 155 from Nayabet who’s on a farm in New Zealand ( http://www.inglespodcast.com/2017/05/14/farming-and-agriculture-airc155/  ) Thank you so much guys for this podcast, it will be really useful for me, in fact, I work on a dairy farm here in NZ and I’m a bit familiar with this (these) words but not with all of them. So thank you once more.

How old was Jose when the story happened? 2. Who had drowned in the chanal in the past? 3. How long did the incident take from start to finish? Now listen to Jose’s story and answer the questions 1. How old was Jose when the story happened - 10 2. Who had drowned in the chanal in the past? - gypsy children 3. How long did the incident take from start to finish - 30 seconds Corrections XHere is my story, I hope you likeX (it) XAll over us had forgiven playing close to the channelX (All of us had been forbidden to play close to the canal) You know how children are (good word order) Pronunciation of 'drown' and 'water' XNowadays, the water is running undergroundX (runs underground) XI realised that I was approaching to the tunnel.X - I realised that I was approaching the tunnel. Transcript I was living in the outskirts of Valencia, in the same city where I've always lived. Close to my home flowed one of the seven main channels in this city. Its water was used by a big paper factory, therefore the channel passed into the factory by a tunnel where there were two enormous wood blades rolling constantly in order to break up the things that the water dragged. Back then, the children we played on the street all our free time and naturally all of us had forbidden playing (had been forbidden to play) close to the channel. But you know how children are because you have also been two of them not very long ago. One day, we were around this forbidden place and the channel was so fast-flowing because of the previous rainy days, that water was on the edge, almost overflowing. I was walking on the edge admiring the speed and strength of the water when I slipped and fell into the water. My friends started to yell my name because they wanted to help me, but they couldn't because the water ran speedily and swept me along very quickly. I tried several times to reach the edge to get out from the water, but I couldn't. I realized, that I was approaching to the tunnel dangerously close to the tunnel and I knew I had just one more chance to reach the edge, but I fell again. Then, I knew that I didn't have enough time to try it again. I was afraid because I was already entering into the tunnel and I knew that this meant dying like many gypsy children had already drowned. However, the volume of the water was so high that my small body hit into the top of the tunnel and it stopped me for a few milliseconds and gave me time to reach the edge and get out from the water when my legs were already into (in) the tunnel. All of it happened just in around thirty seconds, no more. When my parents were told about that, they didn't scold me. Just gave me a huge hug and they thank God THAT nothing bad had HAPPENED to me. So, I could survive this way from a certain death from drowning. Surely I had still a lot of things to do in my life. Of course, we never went to play near the channel again, at least me. A few years later this channel was covered because of the city development, and nowadays the water is running underground. Well, this is my story. I hope you like (it). Recap - What makes a good story, like Jose’s? An accurate mix of verb tenses. eg past simple V past continuous V present perfect, etc. A varied, interesting range of vocabulary, including expressions/idioms Using detailed, descriptive language, especially adjectives and adverbs Using linking expressions. eg. contrast (although, etc); addition (on top of that, etc.); time (afterwards, etc.); consequence (as a result, etc.); reference (as for, etc) and so on. Using suspense, drama, mystery, shock, and other emotions that grab the reader’s attention ...and now it's your turn to practise your English. Do you have a true English story to tell us?

This is the best podcast I ever found. Good work! It's very helpful. I found you three weeks ago and now I'm addicted. by Aldroper from Spain Voice Message from Gabriel from Tijuana He’s not disagreeing with us, he’s disagreeing with the wall. Episode 149 Edgar Ubaldo’s message (http://www.inglespodcast.com/2017/04/03/the-mexican-wall-and-eugenis-pronunciation-airc149/  ) Voice message from Josep from Barcelona The Phrase Finder: http://www.phrases.org.uk/  Kurt Cobain - Nirvana (1967-1994) It's better to burn out than to fade away." Elvis Presley (1935 - 1977) Towards the end of his life, at his last press conference, amongst the final words he said in public were: "I hope I haven't bored you." Elvis took an overdose of drugs and he said to his fiancée "I'm going to the bathroom to read." John Lennon (1940-1980) "I'm shot." John Quincy Adams (1767–1848) - 6th President of the United States "This, is the last of earth. I am content." Frank Sinatra died after saying, “I’m losing it.” Buddha (AKA Siddhattha Gautama) circa 563BC - circa 483BC "Work hard to gain your own salvation." He also said, "Behold, O monks, this is my advice to you. All component things in the world are changeable." George Orwell’s last written words were, “At fifty, everyone has the face he deserves.” He died at age 46. Leonardo da Vinci was very modest. He said, “I have offended God and mankind because my work did not reach the quality it should have.” Spike Milligan (1918-2005) "I told you I was ill." (Epitaph written on his tombstone) Sir Winston Churchill’s last words were, “I’m bored with it all.” As he was dying, Alfred Hitchcock said, “One never knows the ending. One has to die to know exactly what happens after death, although Catholics have their hopes.” Stan Laurel (1890-1965) "I'd rather be skiing." Groucho Marx’s final quip (witty remark) when he was dying was: “This is no way to live!” Ernesto “Che” Guevara’s last words before execution, after being taken prisoner: “I know you are here to kill me. Shoot! You’re only going to kill a man!” Johannes Brahms, German composer (1833 - 1897): “Ah! That tastes nice! Thank you” after he had a small glass of wine. Anna Pavlova, Russian ballerina, (1881 - 1931): “Get my swan costume ready.” Dylan Thomas, poet, (1914 - 1953): “I’ve had 18 straight whiskies. I think that’s the record…” Karl Marx, German philosopher, (1818 - 1883): When asked by his housekeeper what he wanted his final words to be, he said: “Go on, get out! Last words are for fools who haven’t said enough!” What would you want your last words to be? How would you like to be remembered? If you could leave a 'moral will', what would be in it? - What advice would you like to pass on? Interesting idiomatic phrases Put the cart before the horse - Reverse the accepted or logical order of things. - eat dessert before the main course or decide what to wear before you've been invited to the party.
