    English Lesson of the week 2 October -Let’s get active + Active and Passive tense

    Transcripciones

    This video is made for all fabulous students so that they know what to expect in this week’s amazing lesson. Do you want to know what’s in this week’s lesson? well, let’s find out
    This week, guys, the lesson that we have on our platform is «let’s get active«. Autumn is here. Summer is gone and it’s very easy for us to be wrapped up warm under our blankets. It is Ninja level to be under the blankets but no we will be active so in this lesson we’re going to be active. We’re going to show you some words to get you moving because here at Brent English even the teachers are very active. What we want from our teachers is to push the limits, push themselves harder so that they are able to improve their body and the mind very important. So this video will be explained a little bit about the vocabulary, a little bit about the idioms and collocations and a little bit about the grammar. Let’s get started with our vocabulary. Now, if you go onto our platform at brentschool.com this is what
    you find and then you see let’s get active and go to a vocabulary.

    So let’s look at the vocabulary we got and

    • the first one they’ve got is uneasy now remember a vocabulary is level guided Ninja level.
      We practices all the time this is it. It’s uneasy. Uneasy, remember, it’s it’s an adjective that says yes you feeling a little bit um not easy,  you’re feeling not comfortable. Okay so you are uneasy because you’re not training for example.
    • the next one you’re looking at is
      uh first now fuss is a noun. Now if you make a fast. If you wake up first then that means that you are getting too excited about something now I never get excited about anything. I mean you know this is me normally, every day.

    So that’s the vocabulary guys. Remember there’s a lot more on the platform if you’ll go over that with your teachers.

    All right, now it’s time to go over to idioms and collocations on the platform now the ones that we’re going to be looking at the first one now. Remember idioms and collocations, they say a lot in just a few words so it’s really important for you to be able to use them so that you can speak and communicate much better

    • the first one we’re going to look at is cool as a cucumber. So cool as a cucumber guys remember the idiot collocation that means to be relaxed for example if you are in a stressful situation you can remain as cool as a cucumber like Brent English students
      when they do their exams they are as cool as cucumbers.
    • the next one we got is blue in the face. Blue in the face which means that you can ask and ask and ask until you blew in the
      face but it’s not going to happen fornexample like when we tell our students to do their homework and they always ask us for more homework, the students are always blue in the face but they say no more, no more and we say no more for you always this is how we are at Brent English. 

    Now in our grammar this week guys we have a fabulous topic right the grammar. This week is what the active voice, let’s get active and the passive voice.  Remember guys with the active voice and passive voice. The active voice says who did something and the passive voice says what has been done now.

    This will be covered in your class with your amazing teacher so enjoy thank you so much for watching this video. We truly hope you enjoyed. It it’s time to get active guys, not only for our body for our minds remember enjoy your English experience because the more you
    enjoy the more you will speak the more you speak the better you become and that’s the Fast Pass Method.

We’re going to get you speaking using phrasal verbs. We’re gonna get you listening to topics about phrasal verbs and we’re going to improve your general understanding come on. SO in this video we’re going to look at some vocabulary, then we’re going to go to idioms and collocations and after eating circulations we’re going to look at Grandma.
    We’re gonna focus on our phrasal verbs. So let’s start with our vocabulary. So let’s have a look at the first one so if you go onto the
    platform at brentschool.com this is what you can find. The time to take off that’s our topic this weekend if you go to vocabulary let’s look at the first one in vocabulary. Remember our vocabulary is level guided guys so we start with B1 and we go on to Ninja level which is
    … yes!

    • so the first one we got is to book. to book a flight, book a flight, to book a hotel… So if you make a booking guys, remember, you are reserving a flight or you are reserving a hotel. So this is a verb you can book just about anything why is it book? because you’re writing in the book, writing in the book music … 
      Let’s go on to the next vocabulary that we’re looking at. Remember this video is just explaining a bit but in your class you will learn a lot more with your fabulous teacher.
    • Now the next vocabulary we’re looking at is dizzy. Dizzy, it’s an adjective. Dizzy is when you start to feel light-headed and you start to feel a little bit weak like a cucaracha. Sometimes when people fly or when they take off, they do feel a bit dizzy, especially if you fly long distance

      So this is some of the vocabulary. Now it’s time to go on to idioms and collocations. This is how we practice. Remember if you
      go to the platforms Idioms and collocations and this what you will find. Idioms and collocations are expressions that you can use that say a lot in just a few words and remember with the Fast Pass Method it’s designed to get people speaking and what we want to do is make you communicate the best and the fastest way possible without putting any stress on you
      So let’s look at a few of the of the areas of the collocations

    • the first one we got is value for money means when something is very good at its price and it’s very good at the product. In Spanish, people say calendar quality price value for money.
    • The next one we’re looking at is Riding High. Riding High means when you’re feeling very ecstatic. You are riding high it’s like you are on a wave so it’s when you’re on the top of a wave and you feel very ecstatic. It could be that your sports team won a match and you are riding High. Just like Scotland Scotland Scotland is always winning Scotland Scotland he’s Scottish back into that okay so that you are riding high now.

    It’s time to look at our grammar. Are you ready for grammar? We’re looking at phrasal verbs so our phrasal verbs you form when you take a verb and you can take an adverb or a preposition to create them. So we’re going to look at some here but in your lesson you’re
    going to look at a lot more with your fabulous teachers. Are you ready once again?

    • So, let’s go to the first one okay so the first one we’re gonna go with is to agree with. If you if you agree with me then that means that you investigator in Spanish you say estacado that you agree with someone. So you can agree with or you cannot agree with for it for example when I tell my students that they need to do their homework many of them don’t agree with us do they agree
      with you okay no no they don’t they don’t like homework
    • and the next one we’re going to look at this is check in. Check in if you’re going check into a hotel booking  check in

    So let’s start off now with some of the vocabulary now. Remember this is on the platform so if you go onto the platform this is what you can find and today we are going to be looking at two of our vocabulary. So the first one we’re gonna be looking at is the first one we’re gonna be looking at is:

    • clever:  remember clever is an adjective. If you’re clever then that means you are very fast at understanding things all right so if you remember when you were a kid who was the clever one in your class.
    • the next one we’re going to look at is hindsight. Hindsight is when you understand something only after it has happened. Okay so this is a very good word in spanish i think it would be retrospective I meant there okay so that’s hindsight.

    Now, as you see on the platform, there’s a lot of other vocabulary so we’ve got a lot more vocabulary on there.

    Now let’s go on to our idioms and collocations. The idioms and collocations remember that it’s expressions that you can use that say a lot in just a few words and they’re very very useful so let’s have a look at the first one:

    • blast from the past: in English is an expression that means it’s a powerful way that you remember things that that happened to you and you kind of reminisce about the past if you see something or you hear something and it takes you back.
    • Let’s look at the next one. The next one looking at is a trip down memory lane is when you remember things that happened to you in the past but happy things that happened to you in the past for example: passing an english, exam happy music…

    So that’s a little bit of the idioms and collocations as you see there’s a lot more on the platform so remember to check that out.

    Now it’s time for us to check out our grammar now. Our grammar this week, guys, is about the past tense. Remember the past tense in English, especially with the pronunciation can be a bit tricky. There’s the -id sound the -ed okay for example: mended mended.
    There’s the strong t-. for example walked/worked
    And there’s d- sound so there’s a lot of things that you will be looking at this week with your teachers.
