The Tao of Language Learning


Welcome to the Tao of Language Learning. This site is my way of "gettin' the word out" to all my
ESL/EFL students in a way that can only be done on the Internet. Here, you'll find documentaries,
interviews, & commercials in English as well as links & tips on making THIS language more of a
part of your daily life... an extention of yourself, so to speak. This approach is very ORGANIC! The
Tao of Language Learning is a work in progress, so ENJOY AND PLEASE CONTRIBUTE YOUR
OWN IDEAS!

The Tao of Language Learning - A Musical Metaphor


When I was first learning how to read music, I was advised to sight-read through as many songs as
possible and not worry about whether I was playing them perfectly or not. The point was, simply, to
develop confidence in my ability to read music. Language learners who are not accustomed to
watching documentaries & films in English have the same challenge. My advice is: watch a
documentary or a commercial or a film, then move on to the next one. Don't worry if you don't
understand everything. That's not the point!

http://bestwaytolearnenglish.blogspot.com/2008/08/beginning.html

I started to learn English about 3 years ago. It was a challenge for me, cause I didn't want to learn
English, but my parents told me that it was really important for me to learn it. At my first class I
loved the English language, everyday I was trying to search for ways to improve it!

You have to make this new language part of your life, talk as much as you can, read, to listen, and to
write as much as you can and more, plus keep contact with native people (people who live in an
English country), I'll put some tips that I found in a wonderful site, these tips will make you get
better in English, take a look at this wonderful site:
http://www.englishexperts.com.br/
Now take a look in this place:
http://www.englishexperts.com.br/2007/02/13/14-dicas-para-turbinar-o-seu-ingles/
Wonderful Tips!

http://bestwaytolearnenglish.blogspot.com/2008/08/hello-again-today-im-gonna-give-some.html

1.Reading
(Read and try to understand the words without search on the dictionary, try to guess the meaning if
you don't know the word, if you really need to look on the dictionary, you can take a look on the
definition in English, and try to understand what the word means)

2.Listening
(Listen everyday musics in English, north American TV programs, news, watch movies, and try to
listen English all the time, listening is one of the most important skills, you cannot learn another
language if you don't get used to listen the things in this new language)

3.Writing
(Start to make a diary in English, and write everyday all the things you've done. Copy texts to get
used, if you don't know how to write something, create the word, what you really want is try to
think in English)

4.Speaking
(Speak as much as you can, you cannot be shy, you have to show for the people what you know, and
learn what you don't know, don't care about the mistakes, cause a mistake show for you that you are
learning, each mistake means that you are going to learn the right way of something, so don't be
afraid to make a mistake)

http://bestwaytolearnenglish.blogspot.com/2008/08/technology-today-is-one-of-best-ways-to.html

The Technology today is one of the best ways to help you improve your English.
If you have a Pen Drive (USA= Flash Drive), you can carry all your English files in your pocket,
and the computer helps too much too.
E.g: you can make presentations on PowerPoint, you can write texts in English, you can have
programs to help you get better in it, you can listen many things in this language all the time with an
MP3, Cell Phone oa an Ipod and many other things.
And I'm always looking for websites.
I'm gonna put here some sites that I use, take a look:

http://www.youtube.com
(An amazing site to take videos, and study with Native people, and to find music videos too, you
will love)

http://www.englishexperts.com.br
(The best place for who wants to get better in this new language)

http://www.bbc.co.uk
(Wonderful place to listen radio, to get tips, for teachers and students)

http://www.google.com
(You can put all your doubts here, you will find all the answers)

http://www.4shared.com
(Here you can find English files, and you can share too)

You will find many other sites on English Experts.

I'll post some more later.

Have a nice day! See you next time, or post...

http://bestwaytolearnenglish.blogspot.com/2008/09/slangs-and-expressions.html

Well, What's up everybody?


Hello again people!
Well, in this post I'll talk about the importance of the slangs and expressions in English!
Have you ever used some slang before??
Oh, I think so!
We use slangs everyday in our language, and expressions too!
To be a fluent speaker, you have to know the formal English and the informal English, for sure that
some words you have just to know, but you cannot use them, I mean, it's better don't use them, these
kind of words are called " bad words".
(Later I'll explain more about the "bad words")

I'm gonna post some slangs and expressions:

My bad (foi mal)


Hit on (dar em cima)
Cool (legal)
What's up? (como vai?, e ai?)
Take care (se cuida)
Take it easy (pega leve)
I Think so (acho que sim)
See ya (te vejo)
See y'all(vejo vocês)...

There are many other slangs and expressions that I'll talk about on the next posts!

Now some abbreviations you can use on the messenger:

JK= Just Kidding


IDK= I Don't Know
W/O= Withouth
W/=With
LOL= Laugh So Loud

I'm learning many slangs, and new words that are common in USA with my friend Jessica Braz, she
lived in USA for a long time, and she's teaching me many things in English, and I'll share with you
people!
Thanks Jessica for all your help!
I'll never forget you my wonderful sister!

I hope you like it!


See y'all!

Do you know Black Eyed Peas??


I think so!
The Image beside as you can see is an exclamation point!!
This point brings the question " Where is the love?" that is one of
the songs of this group!
The song " Where is the love?" it's really interesting and pretty
good for English students, cause in this song we can see many
examples of slang, and it's a critical song, the meaning is
wonderful, you are gonna learn not just more words, but you will
think about what is happening nowadays in our world!
I put this image in the blog to protest!!And make people think
about our society!!

" Ask yourself, where is the love?"


How much do you already have...

Now, If you wanna see the lyric of this song , please access:

Hallo,

ich war ein knappes viertel Jahr beruflich in London (Rechtsabteilung einer Baufirma). Die Zeit
wollte ich vor allem nutzen, um mein Englisch zu verbessern. Es war nicht so einfach, eine
adäquate Möglichkeit hierfür zu finden. Ich habe mir diverse Angebote
angeschaut und leider fast vier Wochen verloren, ehe ich das Passende gefunden habe. Ein Problem
war, dass es nicht so viel Angebote für Leute gibt, die den ganzen Tag im Büro sind und erst nach
18.30 Zeit haben. Sprachkurse wären nicht effizient genug gewesen. Außerdem hätte ich zu viel
Zeit verloren, um zum Kursort zu kommen. Ich habe
also versucht "one-to-one" Trainer zu finden. Nachdem ich einige Sitzungen mit preisgünstigen
Anbietern hatte, die jedoch aufgrund nicht vorhandener Kompetenz nicht zielführend waren, habe
ich etablierte Anbieter probiert. Die waren leider teuer und unflexibel. In Woche fünf habe ich einen
talentierten und zuverlässigen "teacher" gefunden, mit dem ich sehr effizient bis zum Schluss
durchgearbeitet habe. Er hat meine Fehler sehr schnell analysiert und zielgerichtet gegengesteuert.
Obwohl wir jeden zweiten Tag eine Sitzung hatten, wurde es nie langweilig. Wir haben z.B. auch
Themen vorbereitet, die
ich am nächsten Tag in Besprechungen abhandeln musste. Von Vorteil war auch, dass er ohne
Zusatzkosten nach Canary Wharf kam, sodass unsere Sitzungen im Anschluss an die Arbeit
stattfinden konnten. Leute, die in einer ähnlichen Situation sind und nicht vier Wochen verlieren
möchten, können "Pery" unter folgenden Koordinaten erreichen: 07963960499 oder
learnenglish@london.com.
