Reading is really important as it transports us to different lands and different times and allows us to use our imaginations.

So now it’s time to go over to our new teacher Lisa to have an explanation about the grammar which is the passive tense.

– hi Lisa. thanks brent hello everyone i’m Lisa Liu, thank you so much for joining us. This week we are looking at passive tense. When do we use passive tents? while we use passive tens when what happens is more important than who does it for example the car has been repaired so we can go away this weekend.

We also use the passive tense when we don’t know who or what does or did something for example: “my mobile phone has been stolen”.

We further use the passive tense when we don’t need to say who or what does or did something because it is clear from the situation or context for example: “the law was passed earlier this year” It is obvious by the context that the law was passed by the government and finally when writing in an official style for example:  “your ticket has been booked and can be connected from our office. There are many more examples of the passive tents that you can see on the platform so please do check them out and have a wonderful week!

Thank you so much Lisa and we look forward to seeing you in the lessons.

Comparative and Superlative + Lesson of the week

Transcripciones

I’m more intelligent than Brent.Wait! what? Hey Fast Pass Method students, how are you? this week the topic on our platform is televisión. I love televisión. We all have a favorite series or a favorite movie that we could watch over and over again but expressing yourself in this topic is really important as many of us today are consuming content on our Smartphone, our smart televisión or our tablet. Having the vocabulary and the words to be able to express yourself in this topic is really important and that is what the Fast Pass Method is all about having the ability to express yourself about a topic that makes you relaxed. When you are relaxed you can speak more and the more that you speak, the better you become and that’s the Fast Pass Method so this week the topic on our platform is about televisión.

Oh before we begin we want to say welcome to our new students that are joining us, thank you so much for believing and trying out the Fast Pass Method.

This week the grammar topic is about the difference between comparative and superlative adjectives. This is a great grammar topic because it will help us to express about which is the better television series and which is the best movie you have ever seen on televisión and to help us with this video Pash, our teacher Pash will be explaining about this. Also we will be going over to Sonia in Madrid to see what she has for us in our Fast Pass Español and we will be going to Adriana to see what our podcast has for us this week.

So let’s go now over to pasha to see what he has for us in the gramar explanation. Hey Pash. Thanks Brent. Hi guys and this week we are talking about the comparative and superlative forms of adjectives to form them we normally add -er at the end of the adjective in a comparative form and –est in a superlative form. For example tall. I am taller than Brent but i’m not the tallest in school. Some adjectives are more than two syllables for those to make a comparative form we add more in front of the adjectives and the most to make a superior form for example: I’m more intelligent than Brent and I’m the most intelligent in the school and some of the adjectives are irregular for example

good – better and the best

I am better than Brent simply and i’m the best in the school for example

I’m more intelligent than Brent. Wait! What? and i’m the most intelligent in the school. There are many more examples of me being better and the best on the platform so please take some time to check them out and have a great week, thank you!

That was pasha’s last ever video with us. Now it’s time to go over to Sonia to find out what Sonia has for us in Fast Pass Español. Hola Sonia. Hola Brent hola a todos, espero que hayáis tenido una estupenda Semana Santa. Esta semana vamos a hablar del tiempo, el clima porque ahora en primavera unos días hace calor, otros días hace frío y en gramática nos vamos a centrar en el verbo hacer en todos sus tiempos.

After certain verbs including describe and regard. For example:

I regard you as a hard-working person to mean for example i love sports such as rugby cricket and soccer.

In sentences when you think something is true. For example:

As far as i’m concerned she is going to win.

Like on the other hand, we use to mean similar or for example

Let’s look at two examples

He’s eating what looks like cake

He enjoys music like jazz and soul

Telephone English

Transcripciones

Do you use the telephone? then telephone week is just for you!!

Hey Fast Pass method students. Our lesson this week is telephone week. Now using the telephone is really important in particular at business English because having the possibility to speak to someone and communicate over the telephone can be very frightening because you can’t see the person and the only thing you’re doing is listening to their voice. So having the ability to remain calm and understand the process is really important in a telephone conversation and so this week our topic on our platform is telephone week.

Now the Fast Pass Method has been designed to be able to make you speak and communicate and using what you have learned and putting it into practice with telephone week will be really important. We will be looking at new vocabulary, some fantastic expressions and also some collocations, some sentences that you can use when you’re speaking on the telephone and this will convey a lot of information in one sentence and that is what communication is about expressing yourself very clearly so that the other person can understand you.

Now our grammar topic this week is about word formation. Word formation is also very important as we attempt to increase your vocabulary so that when you speak you have new wonderful vocabulary to use in your conversation and in your communication.

This week also remember we’re going to Madrid and to see Sonia with Fast Pass Español to find out what is in the class this week and we will be going to Adriana with our podcast to see what we have in our podcast this week.

Now over to the word formation video so we can learn how to create our vocabulary.

This week in Fast Pass method by Brent English we’re looking at word formation, in particular adding suffixes. You can form verbs nouns adjectives and adverbs from other related or base words by adding a suffix to the end of the Word. There is no clear rules. Each word and the words which can be formed from it must be learnt individually. Here are a few examples:

The suffix –ment  with the verb adjust forms the noun adjustment.
The suffix -ness with the adjective friendly forms the noun friendliness
The suffix –ish with the noun child forms the adjective childish
The suffix –ship with the noun partner forms the noun partnership

There are many more to look at and during the week you will be going over them with your teachers.

There you go guys, did you enjoy? did you see what we are going to be looking at in our grammar topic this week fantastic?  yes, we will increase our vocabulary with new wonderful words.
