Do you always know how to respond in English? Even if you have been learning English for a while, you may not know useful phrases for every situation. Here are 24 phrases you need to know if you want to speak natural English.
Do you know which languages Shakira speaks? (A hint - she speaks 5!)
Do you know what "he has monkeys in the attic" in Portuguese translates as in English?
Did you you know that kiss means pee in Swedish? (That could cause some confusion if the Swedes didn't speak such good English!)
Find out all of the above and more on the European Day of Languages facts and fun page (Ok, so I know it's no longer the 26th September, but it's still fantastic.)
In my kids class this afternoon, we were watching this video. One of the Mums said she should also watch it to practise her numbers and it gave me the idea to post the video here on the blog (thanks Marion!)
We usually learn how to count at English at school, and then we forget about it. Until the day when we have to use English for work and we find that saying numbers is not always easy.
So here's a little video for you sing along to. Close the curtains and sing it alone, or find some children to sing with you. It even has an exercise routine that goes with it - exercise and English at the same time, great!
(PS If you want some other great songs to help your children learn English, have a look at DreamEnglish.com.)
