You will also discover why you don't have to mention alliteration, simile, metaphor, rule of three etc, and why you should never write 'it draws the reader in'.

√ How to Analyse Texts Critically - Critical Thinking - English
 
21:11
#iitutor #English #CriticalThinking https://www.iitutor.com/ https://blog.gradeproof.com/need-more-inspiration-on-how-to-improve-your-writing/ Every Text Can Be Interpreted Every idea, theme and concept in a text is open for interpretation and its meaning can change. Don’t assume common knowledge, because even facts need to be proven. So, for that reason, you can choose to ignore more common analysis and come up with your own. Critical Analysis of Texts Texts can be analysed independently. There is no set consensus on how you should do it – only that you are able to justify the how and why in your argument. It requires breaking down a text and its key sections, a bit of note-taking, and for you to make clear distinctions. Construction of Story There is much to analyse in how a story is constructed. The way language and structure are used is important. It influences the meaning of the text. Think about how the form and style of an author affects how the text communicates. You should be looking for things such as: • medium • genre • style of prose/poetry • use of plot devices such as flashbacks, varied narrators and climax • formatting/editing • meaning • representation Language Visual and written language techniques are the simplest method you may use to interpret a text. You must think and analyse how and why they are used. You must constantly challenge the use of such techniques. look at how they contribute to meaning: • imagery, emotional and sensory language • metaphor • visual layout • camera and film techniques • dialogue • contrast, paradox and juxtaposition Characterisation Characterisation is an important consideration for critical analysis. By analysing how a character is portrayed, you can discuss their motives and purpose. This is not the same as describing a character. Characterisation can be indicated through description and dialogue, or through the ‘voice’ of the narrator. This is indicated through: • use of dialogue • description • character’s role (antagonist, protagonist, foil) • relationships • change in narration • language techniques and their effect on appearance Theme Theme is purely interpretive. Any theme you identify has to be justified and argued. Theme can be interpreted through a key idea or effect of a text. In other words, the theme is basically the predominant idea of what the text achieves through meaning. They can be ideas relating to: • philosophy/psychology • feelings • personal issues • political • social • cultural • religious/spiritual • life and its stages

Perfect English | The most important English words! 4/11
 
17:25
If you’re ready to move beyond fluency to perfect English you’re in the right place! Here you will learn the most important words in the English language, getting detailed analysis on each word’s use and pronunciation. As part of a series on the top 100 most-used English words this video equips you with the precise way to say the 31st through 40th most commonly used words in English. Some of them are very short! But that doesn’t mean they’re not important. In fact these words are absolutely key to you learning English in its spoken form. Fluency in English means that you can read, write and understand everything. But many students hope to go well beyond that. In order to have meaningful and rich conversations in the English you need to be not just fluent, but fully comfortable with speaking English. That’s where I come in! My entire channel is devoted to this very specific task: moving you from mere fluency to perfect English conversation! You can do it and I can help. And I simply can’t think of a better place to start than with the most commonly used words in the English language. Of course you’ll need to master the pronunciation of many additional words, too, but if you can lock in the learning on the words in this series you’ll be off to a terrific start. It’s my belief that in order to learn English…spoken English!...we need more than just lists of vocabulary words. This entire video is devoted to perfecting just 10 words. You’ll learn how to say and use each of these words by stopping and repeating after me. When you take your time and learn them correctly the first time, English words become so much less intimidating! Check out the playlist on my channel for all of the other videos in this series on the most common English words. And please leave me a comment if you find the video helpful or if you have suggestions for another video that would help you as you continue to learn English!

But the irregular verbs might be the most confusing part. Why is “told” the past tense of “tell” but “smold” isn’t the past tense of “smell”? It turns out that the study of irregular verbs can teach us a lot about how languages evolve. This week, we look at how the era of Big Data is unlocking secrets behind the weirdness of words.

PERFECT ENGLISH – 10 must-know English words! | Rachel’s English Pronunciation | Top 100 words
 
20:28
If you’re ready to move beyond fluency to perfect spoken English you’re in the right place! Here you will learn the most important words in the English language, getting detailed analysis on each word’s use and pronunciation. As the final part of a series on the top 100 most-used English words this video equips you with the precise way to say the 91st through 100th most commonly used words in English. Some of them are very short! But that doesn’t mean they’re not important. In fact these words are absolutely key to you learning English in its spoken form. Fluency in English means that you can read, write and understand everything. But many students hope to go well beyond that. In order to have meaningful and rich conversations in the English you need to be not just fluent, but fully comfortable with speaking English. That’s where I come in! My entire channel is devoted to this very specific task: moving you from mere fluency to perfect English conversation! You can do it and I can help. And I simply can’t think of a better place to start than with the most commonly used words in the English language. Of course you’ll need to master the pronunciation of many additional words, too, but if you can lock in the learning on the words in this series you’ll be off to a terrific start. It’s my belief that in order to learn English…spoken English!...we need more than just lists of vocabulary words. This entire video is devoted to perfecting just 10 words. You’ll learn how to say and use each of these words by stopping and repeating after me. When you take your time and learn them correctly the first time, English words become so much less intimidating! Check out the playlist on my channel for all of the other videos in this series on the most common English words. And please leave me a comment if you find the video helpful or if you have suggestions for another video that would help you as you continue to learn English!

√ Techniques for Analysing Visual Texts | English
 
12:07
#iiutor #English #LanguageTechniques https://www.iitutor.com Techniques for Analysing Visual Texts • You probably have a good understanding of language techniques. • To analyse images, you need to understand the elements of an image. • Techniques help you to deconstruct the image and see the importance of things you might not have noticed before! Directional Terms • Layout: The way in which images or text blocks are arranged on a page in relation to each other. • You may also like to talk about the composition and where the eye is led. • This is useful for book covers, magazines and advertisements. • Background – the furthest distance away, often what is least important. • Mid-ground – the middle of the image if the image were 3D. • Foreground – the front of the image, often the focus point for the viewer. Things being emphasised are placed here. Image Relationships Juxtaposition: • Deliberately putting two objects together to make an association or relationship. • This often shows why they’re similar. Contrast: • To put two very different things together. • To show why they’re different. • NOTE: some people wrongly use contrast and juxtaposition interchangeably. Focus: • The place on the page your eye is drawn to when you first look at the picture. • The focus is often close to the centre of the frame. Frame: • What’s at the edge of the picture? • Why was it included, or why wasn’t it left out? • Usually helps to create a rectangular “cropped” feel to the image. Vector: • Lines on the page create a direction for your eye to travel in a specific order. • Something you follow often without even realising. • Similar to “where the eye is led” or a “directional line.” Colour Techniques • Vivid colour: like a dream or a child’s view, strong emotions. • Murky colour: something is wrong or dirty or ordinary. • Bright colour: lots of energy, new. • Pastel colour: gentle, dreamy, babies. • Dark colours: mysterious, evil, scary, unknown, strong emotion. • Watery colours: emotional, impression. • Red: danger, emotions like love and hate, fear, battle, blood, attention-seeking. Lighting Techniques • Bold: well defined lines or blocks of strong colour. • Stark: lots of dark and light contrast, sharp angles → cruel, mean, professional, clinical, or scientific. • Gradation: one spectrum to another gradually. • Implies change, loss, or distance. • Lighting effects: usually used for photographs only. • Light and shadow in the photo can help to place importance on the objects. • e.g. the lightest part of the picture is usually looked at first, as though it’s in a spotlight on a stage. Texture Techniques • Rough: looks natural, unfinished, unrefined, old etc. • Smooth: looks even, smooth, simple. Can be feminine, or sleek looking, or commercial or new. • Organic: round and flowing shapes and curves, looks natural, not sharp. • Geometric: looks computer-generated or not-real or unnatural, contrived etc. • Line: a directional technique – “the use of wood grains creates a directional line across the page for the eye to follow.”

Donald Trump Speaks at a Fourth-Grade Level
 
02:13
You know how the President keeps telling us how he's a genius? Well, it turns out he isn't. There's a website called 'Factbase' that did an analysis of the first 30,000 words spoken in office by every President since Hoover, they loaded all the information into a computer and what their software found is that President Trump speaks at a fourth-grade level. Even more embarrassing is a letter that Trump wrote to his nine-year-old pen pal 'Pickle.'

Improve Your Writing - 6 ways to compare
 
10:33
One of the most common types of essays you will have to write at university as well as on the IELTS or TOEFL is a comparison essay. In this lesson, I will teach you some useful words that will help you to compare things. By the end of this video, you will be able to use terms such as "alike", "similar", "in the same way", "likewise", and more. Take my quiz at the end for more experience using these words. http://www.engvid.com/writing-6-ways-to-compare/ TRANSCRIPT Hello. My name is Emma, and in today's video, I am going to teach you some key words you can use when you talk about how things are the same or similar. Okay? So when you compare two things -- when you're comparing apples and oranges, there are some similarities. They're both fruits. When you're comparing shopping to skiing, when you're comparing a city to a country or the countryside -- there is a certain language we like to use when we're saying how these things are similar or the same. In this video, I'm going to teach you a bunch of expressions you can use when comparing two things to show their similarities. Okay? So this video is called "Talking about similarities". So for this video, I decided I wanted to do a theme. I wanted to look at how Canada and England are similar. In what ways are they very much alike? Okay? So each of my sentences are going to have to do with Canada and England, and we're going to look at how they're alike using these comparison words. So for those of you watching, if you are doing the TOEFL, these words are essential. If you are doing the IELTS -- very important vocabulary here. General English, you can use these at university for essays, college, or even just general conversation. So let's get started. Okay. So how are Canada and England the same? Well, I would say, first of all, both Canada and England have a queen. Both Canada and England have Queen Elizabeth. So one word we often use when we're talking about similarities is this word, "both". Both Canada and England have a queen. Both Canada and England have trees. Both Canada and England have cities. Okay? So there are a lot of different things you can compare. This is just one of them. Now, I want to say why I wrote the word "beginning" here. "Both" often comes at the beginning of a sentence. And notice how the construction is. We have both A and B. Another example, "Both cats and dogs are animals." "Both hamsters and mice are rodents." Okay? So we use this a lot when we're comparing. We can also say "like". In this case, we're not saying, "I like Canada" or "I like" -- you know, showing preference -- we're again showing similarity. "Like Canada, England has many immigrants." Canada has many immigrants. England has many immigrants. "Like Canada, England has many immigrants." And again, you'll notice "like" is at the beginning of the sentence. It's often -- not always, but often -- at the beginning. We have it followed by a noun. I could change this to something else. Imagine if I wanted to compare cats and dogs. "Like cats, dogs have fur." Okay? I could say that. If I'm comparing men and women, "Like women, men are human." Okay? It's not the greatest of comparisons, but you can use these types of words when you're comparing. Okay? So now, I have some other things I want to compare. In England, they speak English. In Canada, we also speak English. Not everybody, but many Canadians speak English. Some speak French, but a lot of people speak English. So I'm going to teach you some words you can use when comparing these two sentences. "In England, they speak English. Similarly, in Canada many people speak English, too. In comparison, in Canada many people also speak English. In the same way, in Canada many people speak English." And finally, another way similar to this but slightly different, "Likewise, in Canada many people speak English." So these are a little bit different from these ones. They all mean how they are the same. But you'll notice one of the differences here is these are followed by a comma. "Likewise, comma." And then, we have the rest of the sentence. These go at the beginning of the sentence. Okay? In case you can't tell, this is a period. So we have our first sentence, "In England, they speak English. Similarly, in Canada many people speak English." Okay? So you can use these in your writing. They would really, really help on your TOEFL, IELTS, or university essays to help you get a better mark.

NO 🌏Where are you from? Tel-Aviv, Israel (I speak Hebrew) ❓ How did you lose your accent? I learned acting in NYC and acquired an American Accent. So I never really lost anything. I also talk about it here: https://goo.gl/PShZ9s 🤔 How can I sound more like a native speaker? You don't have to. A foreign accent is not a bad thing. It's a part of your identity. Of who you are. Your goal should be to sound clear, to have an impact when you speak, and to feel confident in your English voice so that you never let your English hold you back or prevent you from achieving your goals. Aiming for 'speaking like a native' sets the bar so high, you may get discourages and won't even dare to try. #CommunicationOverPerfection 😩What's the worst thing about traditional English training? It's taught as if everyone has the name needs. And it's mostly boring. 🇺🇸Do native speakers think you are American? At first. But later in the conversation, they may detect a subtle accent. Depends on what I'm talking about and how tired I am. I don't care about it too much though, I'm a proud non-native speaker ✊ 🇮🇱🇵🇸What do you think about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? I think land is not worth dying or fighting for. I will always promote peace and co-existence. And for me communication in English is a way to overcome political and cultural barriers. 🎓Do you teach 1:1? I don't. I have an amazing colleague, Natalie, who teaches 1:1 at my school and online using my methods. I also have an online program called Accent Makeover that runs 2-3 times a year.

Speaking English with an accent. Getting stuck. Your voice and your identity make you unique. There are enough Native English speakers out there in the world... You don't need to become another one. Find your own voice. It's important to improve your pronunciation and fluency so you feel more confident and capable. So YOU can express yourself better, and minimize the gap between your native tongue and your English. And If someone makes fun or judges you because of your accent, simply ask back: Oh, and how many languages do YOU speak?! 😏 People who only speak one language don't always understand what it means to overcome the challenges of speaking a foreign language.

8 English Sentences: Find the Mistakes
 
08:16
Can you find the mistakes in these English sentences? In today's lesson, you'll review 8 grammar rules of correct English sentences. You'll get to practice correcting sentences with me in the video. Once you learn these easy grammar rules, you'll avoid making common mistakes and improve your marks on English essays and exams like IELTS, TOEFL, and TOEIC. To test if you really understand these rules, take the quiz. Good luck with your English! http://www.engvid.com/8-english-sentences-find-the-mistakes/ TRANSCRIPT Hi, my name's Rebecca. For the next few minutes, let's pretend you are the English teacher and you're correcting your student's homework. Let's look at some of these sentences and see if you can find some of the errors in these English sentences. Okay, the first sentence: "My mother she works in a bank." Is that okay? Well, let me tell you right now that actually none of these sentences are okay; there is a mistake in every sentence. So see if you can find the mistake. Okay? "My mother she works in a bank." What's the mistake? Okay... Here, "she", all right? I'm just going to grab a different marker. So what happened here is we said: "My mother she works in a bank." So we cannot repeat the subject. The mistake here is that we had a double subject; the subject was mentioned twice. In English, you can't do that. You just mention the subject once. So this sentence, in order to be correct, would need to be: "My mother works in a bank." Or: "She works in a bank." If you know who "she" is. Right? But you can't say both. So no double subjects. Number two: "John is an engineer" What's wrong with that? Look carefully. Well, what's wrong is that it's missing the punctuation. All right? Part of a correct sentence is correct punctuation. So here, there was no period at the end of the sentence, that's what was wrong. Next sentence: "The manager of my department" What's wrong with that? Well, what's wrong is that it's not a sentence because it doesn't have any verb, there's no verb there. Okay? And, of course, you need to continue this sentence, and then eventually you'd need to have some punctuation as well. But basically, there is no... This is a sentence fragment. This is called only a part of a sentence. It is not a complete English sentence or a correct English sentence. There is no verb. Missing verb. Next one: "we enjoy watching old movies." Okay? Again, look carefully. What's wrong there? Well, it has a subject, it has a verb, but this is the problem. The first letter in the first word of an English sentence has to be capitalized and that's what was missing here. You see, we didn't have that problem before. Okay. Next one: "I like very much Chinese food." Okay? Maybe that sounds okay to you, but doesn't sound okay to me. It's close, but not quite. What's wrong? Well, what's wrong here is this, the word order. Not only do you need to have certain elements, you need to have the words in the right order. So in English, the correct order for this sentence would be: "I like Chinese food very much." Okay? Not: "very much Chinese food." "I like Chinese food very much." Okay? Next: "Maria need help with her hw." "Maria need help with her homework." What's wrong there? Okay? So the mistake is here, the mistake is in subject-verb agreement. The verb has to agree with the subject. Right? And if we say: "Maria", it's like: "she", and we would have to say: "She needs". "Maria needs help with her hw." So the error here was in subject-verb agreement. Next one: "delivered the package yesterday" Okay? "delivered the package yesterday" What's wrong here? Well, it's similar to this one, except here, we had a sentence fragment and we had the subject. Here, we have a sentence fragment, and we have a verb, but we don't have a subject. We have a missing subject. So this is also a sentence fragment. "Fragment" means only part. It is not a complete sentence. Next one: "We recieved your letter." "We recieved your letter." Sounds fine, but if you're an English teacher, you're going to look really carefully at each of the words. And what's wrong is here, the mistake is here. It's a spelling mistake. Okay? The word "received" is one of those tricky words with the "e" and the "i", and the "i" and the "e" that you have to learn very well. So spelling mistakes will also bring down your marks. If you're doing the IELTS, if you're bring... Doing the TOEFL, any errors of this kind will bring your marks down. Okay? So even though they seem very basic, I know from experience that students make all of these mistakes. Be very careful not to make them. Let's look at what principles apply to correct English sentences. Okay? So, an English sentence must express a complete thought and it must express it with certain elements. Now, just because a sentence must express a complete thought, it doesn't have to have a lot of words; it doesn't have to be a very long sentence.
