Advanced English Grammar Lesson for ESL – Passive Voice

By admin - Mon May 14, 12:23 am

Chalk ‘n’ Talk from businessenglishpod.com is a new series of video ESL lessons exploring advanced English grammar topics. This lesson looks at the use of the passive voice.

EnglishMeeting video with Dave Sconda. This pronunciation video focuses on a vowel sound at the beginning and middle of words, along with sentences(as in fat, back, etc.). North American Pronunciation. As always, there is music, video effects, some humor, and a few sound bites. This lesson is designed for you to enjoy the learning process, so I do hope you have fun with it. Please send any feedback to me here at youtube or by visiting my website, www.englishmeeting.com where you will find my email address. Thanks for watching and please post positive comments and ratings if you like my videos. This would be helpful to me!

    Good class…. man, I finished my english course about 5 years ago, but I simply stopped. But since when I started my french classes and I’ve came to live in France (for graduation) I’ve simply lost all the fluency I had. Yesterday I made a call to USA and I just couldn’t speak ‘normally”… fucking french… I mixed everything in my head. I do like french, but english is far away important than french and I’m sad…. thanks for the video anyway =)

    There seems to be a differnecei n the æ sound
    in words like “cat” “apple” “aaaaaaaaaah!”
    and in words like “plan” “ran”
    and etc. Could you explain? They usually use the same symbol though

    Hi mate, you are perfectly right. I am not an English native speaker (I am Italian actually), but I have lived over here in the UK for two years. Everybody in Italy does think that the æ is an E, so they have a very strange pronunciation like: flEsh for flAsh, kEsh (?) for cAsh, beck for bAck, bed for bAd, hev(?) for have,and so on. I always try to explain them it is not an E but an æ, but when I do pronounce something “at the English manner” they get it wrong!

    Brings me back to phonics class in first grade. Its actually interesting relearned stuff you learned as a kid and realizing all the bad habits you have developed when it comes to speaking.

    you rock, man..

    i didn’t think they used æ in any other countries, it’s funny because when you say æ, then it’s more aaaer, and not like ahe as on danish
