I'm trying to change the login for the chat room, but it might take awhile for people to get used to the change. If you want your own nickname, protected and available only to you, send me your nickname request and I will send you a password. This might help improve the quality of conversation that's been happening there lately.

The word of the day is "hotel."

Here's a new quiz for Words that begin with the letter P.

 

The word of the day is "grave."

 

This new video includes 55 words that begin with the letter "p."

 

Here's your vocabulary quiz for this month. It's a combination of words from last month and this month.

The word of the day is "excuse."

The word of the day is "death."

If you are one of my students, I sent you an email early this morning. The subject was the passive voice. I hope you learned something from the lesson and the exercise.

Emailed lessons, exercises, and quizzes are only available to people who sign up for them. If you want these things, just sign up.

Your lesson of the day is on the present tense, passive voice:

 

The word of the day is "click."

 

This month most of my students will focus on learning about the passive voice in the Green Level.

In the second lesson in the Green Level is something almost every student should understand, whether that student is a beginner or advanced.

When you come into the world--thanks to your mother's hard work--you are born. The verb "bear" is the simple form for the past participle, "born." We almost always use "be" + "born" to talk about our arrival here on planet Earth:

  • Where were you born?
  • I was born in Germany.
  • My friend, Roseanna, was born in Mexico.
  • Most of my students were born outside of the United States.

To learn how to talk about birth experiences, click here.

The word of the day is "build."

Most of my students will learn about the passive voice this month in the Green Level.
