Hundreds of New Exercises

Posted on May 22, 2008. Filed under: Blogroll, Lessons Based on our Videos, The 2008 Videos | Tags: , |

Hi!

New 
ESL Video Lessons for Beginners, and extensive review material for all shades of Intermediates.

I’ve been working on new quizzes based on the Real English videos. In my opinion, they are much better than the old lessons.
I began at the beginning (Lesson 1)  and so far I have finished over 100 quizzes for the first 8 lessons. In fact, lesson 8 is divided into 5 separate lessons concerning different uses of numbers, so in fact, we have 12 new complete lessons. 
 

I think teachers can send their beginner and intermediate students here and find that their motivation to learn English will get a boost.

I always hesitate when I use terms like “beginner” and “intermediate”, since Real English is real, and real means normal speed, which means “fast” to the ears of all learners of English as a Second or Foreign language. This is why the so called “beginner” lessons are essential review for higher levels.

How to Learn a Second Language

Posted on April 1, 2008. Filed under: Blogroll, Lessons Based on our Videos, The 2008 Videos | Tags: |

We have begun our 18th year of video creation for ESL and EFL students and teachers. Right after New Year’s, we filmed in South Beach, Miami. We concentrated on these questions:

- Do you speak a Second Language?
– How did you learn it?
– Have you any advice for people learning a Second Language?

The answers to these questions will be helpful to ESL students.

There are 2 versions of each video:

the first version is without subtitles and the second version is with precise subtitles or closed captions. Thes videos begin here: http://www.real-english.com/second_lang_a.asp

This is a picture of Joanne. It was the first time she interviewed for Real English. She did excellent work as a first-time interviewer.

In this picture she is interviewing Colonel Roberts. We met him between our “serious interviews”, and asked him different types of questions. It’s a fun interview at http://www.real-english.com/colonel-roberts.asp, based upon what he was doing when we met him: making people do push-ups on the sidewalk in Miami Beach!

All of our latest videos are for intermediate and upper intermediate levels, which is one reason I added the versions with closed captions, making them more accessible to a wider range of levels.

We’re working on new exercises and quizzes now. If you go to lesson 15 in the Classic Clips sections, you’ll see a new type of Real English lesson.
