Hello readers, today you will learn about conjunction.

 A conjunction joins two parts of a sentence.
For examples: 
Coordinating ConjunctionsSubordinating Conjunctions
and, but, or, nor, for, yet, soalthough, because, since, unless


Conjunctions have three basic forms:
  • Single Word
    for example: and, but, because, although
  • Compound (often ending with as or that)
    for example: provided that, as long as, in order that
  • Correlative (surrounding an adverb or adjective)
    for example: so...that


Conjunctions have two basic functions or "jobs":
  • Coordinating conjunctions are used to join two parts of a sentence that are grammatically equal. The two parts may be single words or clauses, for example:
    Jack and Jill went up the hill.
    The water was warm, but I didn't go swimming.
  • Subordinating conjunctions are used to join a subordinate dependent clause to a main clause, for example:
    I went swimming although it was cold.


  • Coordinating conjunctions always come between the words or clauses that they join.
  • Subordinating conjunctions usually come at the beginning of the subordinate clause.

Simple Past Timeline

Simple past tense timeline

For example:
"Last year I took my exams."
"I got married in 1992."
It can be used to describe events that happened over a period of time in the past but not now.

For example:
"I lived in South Africa for two years."
The simple past tense is also used to talk about habitual or repeated actions that took place in the past.

For example:
"When I was a child we always went to the seaside on bank holidays."

English is Fun :)

12:24 AM
Hello everybody :) 
Here I want to share some tips on how to make student interested with english subject and make it fun.
You can came out with many ideas but here I want to use drama activities and how to use it in class :)

Drama activities are a fun, easy and low resource way to teach children English as a foreign language. Because of their communicative style, they are also an excellent way for children to practice using English in realistic situations. Some groups may need some sessions warming up, getting comfortable with each other and building up self-confidence before jumping into the role-play activities and teacher should keep this in mind when planning the first few sessions.

"How Would You Look If…"

The teacher should have the children stand in a circle and he or she should hold up a card, one at a time, which has a different picture showing an emotion or a situation on it. The teacher can then ask the children to act out how they would look/behave if they were feeling the emotion shown on the card or were in the situation shown on the card. Some examples that can be put on the cards include:
  • You are cooking a big meal
  • You see a car crash
  • You won the lottery
  • You are watching fireworks
  • You are stuck in the lift
  • Someone tells you a funny joke
  • Emotions: bored, scared, happy, angry, sad

Usually students will be more interested with activity like this rather than reading a book or passage.
With this kind of activity also sometimes can dig out students' talent.
Good Luck!

Differences between the Present Perfect Tense and the Simple Past Tense.

6:56 AM
The present perfect is used when the time period has NOT finished:
have seen three movies this week.
(This week has not finished yet.)

The simple past is used when the time period HAS finished:
saw three movies last week.

The present perfect is often used when giving recent news:
Martin has crashed his car again.
(This is new information.)

The simple past is used when giving older information:
Martin crashed his car last year.
(This is old information.)

The present perfect is used when the time is not specific:
have seen that movie already.
(We don't know when.)

The simple past is used when the time is clear:
saw that movie on Thursday.
(We know exactly when.)

The present perfect is used with for and since, when the actions have not finished yet:
have lived in Victoria for five years.
(I still live in Victoria.)

The simple past is used with for and since, when the actions have already finished: 
lived in Victoria for five years.
(I don't live in Victoria now.)

Simple Present

6:49 AM

USE 1 Repeated Actions

Use the Simple Present to express the idea that an action is repeated or usual. The action can be a habit, a hobby, a daily event, a scheduled event or something that often happens. It can also be something a person often forgets or usually does not do.
  • play tennis.
  • She does not play tennis.
  • Does he play tennis?
  • The train leaves every morning at 8 AM.
  • The train does not leave at 9 AM.
  • When does the train usually leave?
  • She always forgets her purse.
  • He never forgets his wallet.
  • Every twelve months, the Earth circles the Sun.
  • Does the Sun circle the Earth?

USE 2 Facts or Generalizations

The Simple Present can also indicate the speaker believes that a fact was true before, is true now, and will be true in the future. It is not important if the speaker is correct about the fact. It is also used to make generalizations about people or things.
  • Cats like milk.
  • Birds do not like milk.
  • Do pigs like milk?
  • California is in America.
  • California is not in the United Kingdom.
  • Windows are made of glass.
  • Windows are not made of wood.
  • New York is a small city. It is not important that this fact is untrue.

USE 3 Scheduled Events in the Near Future

Speakers occasionally use Simple Present to talk about scheduled events in the near future. This is most commonly done when talking about public transportation, but it can be used with other scheduled events as well.
  • The train leaves tonight at 6 PM.
  • The bus does not arrive at 11 AM, it arrives at 11 PM.
  • When do we board the plane?
  • The party starts at 8 o'clock.
  • When does class begin tomorrow?

USE 4 Now (Non-Continuous Verbs)

Speakers sometimes use the Simple Present to express the idea that an action is happening or is not happening now. This can only be done with  Non-continuous verbs and certain Mixed Verbs.
  • am here now.
  • She is not here now.
  • He needs help right now.
  • He does not need help now.
  • He has his passport in his hand.
  • Do you have your passport with you?

    Improve Your English Speaking and English Pronunciation Skills

    The first rule of speaking English is to speak clearly, concisely and use simple vocabulary. KISS - keep it short and simple.
    Remember you probably won't just speak to native speakers. There are roughly 380 million native speakers, but as many as a billion people speak it as a second language. So it's a good idea to avoid idioms and slang (I always say learn it, but don't use it). It might sound clever to say "You're barking up the wrong tree," but if you misuse it or if the other person doesn't understand you, you'll only look silly when you try to explain what you meant to say, or what it actually means.
    There's also a saying in English "Have you swallowed a dictionary?" It is applicable to anyone who uses long, complicated words when a shorter word will do. Short sentences are just as good (if not better) than long explanations. The value in what you have to say is what you say, not how clever you look or sound when you say it.

    English speaking tips

    Get over any fear you might have of making mistakes. You will make mistakes.
    Be patient with yourself. Learning any language can be frustrating, but frustration won't help you, so let it go.
    Grasp every opportunity you have to speak with people in English.
    Talk to friends who are also learning English. Go out together for coffee and only speak English to each other!
    Read short stories out loud and try to see, say and hear the words to reinforce your memory. Record yourself and play it back later, how does it sound? 

    Find native English speaking friends:-
    • You might not be able to find any friendly native speakers where you live, butYou can find English speaking people on the Internet! If you can't find anyone who'll actually help you, don't worry, you'll still be able to figure out if they can understand you.
    • Look for people with the same interests as you. It's no good asking everyone you meet to help you with your English, rather develop natural friendships based on your hobbies etc. Eventually you will make friends and they will be much more likely to give you correction / guidance.
    • Join an English club or conversation group. Around the world there are many English speaking clubs, these clubs aren't just for expats but for people interested in the English way of life. They can be friendly and fun.
    • Visit an Irish/English/Australian  food shop, you can usually find one in the larger cities. Often, the waiters and waitresses come from English-speaking countries, the menu is often in English too!
    • Once your English is good enough, go shopping in some tourist areas. You'll find lots of shop assistants speak very good English.
    • If you can travel to an English speaking country, do it.
    • There are several internet based voice chat programmes out there: iVisit | Pal Talk | MSN Web Messenger |Yahoo! Messenger | Google Talk | Skype and lots more.


    Try singing along to English songs. With friends or in the privacy of your own bathroom. Lots of the major games consoles have karaoke games nowadays, like Sing Star on the Playstation.
    !On the internet :- You can speak to me on iVisit (see the forum calendar for times and dates) - you can also listen to or chat with other learners and native speakers there. There are no more excuses.
    !On the network:- Use the pronunciation pages to improve your understanding.
    !On this site:- You can find some karaoke resources and ideas on the learn English through songs page.
    !On the Network: You can find the words to some popular songs on the English magazine.

    Pronunciation skills

    Don't get too hung up on trying to sound like a native speaker. Would you start learning the piano in an attempt to sound like Mozart? Probably not. Accents don't matter, as long as people can understand you, but pronunciation is important.

    tutorial : Study Skills

    7:38 PM
    hye ladies and gentle !

    how to study effectively? lets check it out ! ;) 

    No two people study the same way, and there is little doubt that what works for one person may not work for another. However, there are some general techniques that seem to produce good results. No one would argue that every subject that you have to take is going to be so interesting that studying it is not work but pleasure. We can only wish.

     Everyone is different, and for some students, studying and being motivated to learn comes naturally. If you are reading this page, it's likely that you are not one of them, but don't despair, there is hope! Your success in high school and college is dependent on your ability to study effectively and efficiently. The results of poor study skills are wasted time, frustration, and low or failing grades. It's your life, your time, and your future. All I can say, upon reflection of many years as a teacher, is that time is precious and not to be squandered, no matter what you believe right now.

    This guide is designed to help you develop effective study skills. It is not a magic formula for success in preparing for tests, or written or oral assignments. Studying any material requires work! However, by using the techniques described in this guide, and by applying yourself, you can gain a valuable edge in understanding material, preparing for tests, and, ultimately, learning. This guide contains some of the best and most effective techniques of successful students - students who typically have high grades in high school and college regardless of the courses they take. So read on, think about what you read, and prepare to become a successful student! 

    -Effective Study skills are about more than understanding- 

    Effective study skills must be practiced in order for you to improve. It is not enough to simply "think about" studying; you have to actually do it, and in the process use information from what you do to get better. This is the central idea of this page. All that follows depends on this single concept. There is a saying that goes like this: "Practice doesn't make perfect; perfect practice makes perfect." If you want to be an achiever, take this saying to heart. 

    The value of a schedule

    Before you even begin to think about the process of studying, you must develop a schedule. If you don't have a schedule or plan for studying, then you will not have any way of allocating your valuable time when the unexpected comes up. A good, well thought out schedule can be a lifesaver. It's up to you to learn how to develop a schedule that meets your needs, revise it if necessary, and most important, follow it.

    A schedule saves time

    All schedules should be made with the idea that they can be revised. A good schedule keeps you from wandering off course. A good schedule, if properly managed, assigns time where time is needed, but you've got to want to do it!

    Making every hour count

    A schedule should take into account every class, laboratory, lecture, social event, and other work in which you engage. There are givens such as classes and so on that have to be incorporated. You must focus on the other "free time" available and how you will use it. Make a weekly schedule and block off the 24 hour day in one hour increments. Indicate times for classes, labs, lectures, social, and work time. Also block off a period for sleeping each day. With what is left over, plan time for study. This gives you a rough road map of the time available. Of course, you can revise your schedule as circumstances warrant.


    When to study

    The problem of when to study is critical. A good rule of thumb is that studying should be carried out only when you are rested, alert, and have planned for it. Last minute studying just before a class is usually a waste of time.

    Studying for lecture courses

    If your study period is before the lecture class, be sure you have read all the assignments and made notes on what you don't understand. If the study period is after the lecture class, review the notes you took during class while the information is still fresh.

    Studying for recitation courses

    For classes that require recitation, such as foreign language, be sure to schedule a study period just before the class. Use the time to practice. Sometimes, practice with others can help sharpen your skills in a before-class study period.


    Making and revising a schedule
    Don't be afraid to revise your schedule. Schedules are really plans for how you intend to use your time. If your schedule doesn't work, revise it. You must understand that your schedule is to help you develop good study habits. Once you have developed them, schedule building becomes easier.



    "Success is not measure by the position one has reached in life, rather by the obstacles one overcomes while trying to succeed."— Booker T. Washington
