James’s Free English Lessons

If you TRY, you can do anything! It’s always been my belief that you cannot put information in other people’s heads. If you find a way to show them something, they can use their own intelligence to learn. This is my approach to teaching, trying to be both informative while allowing the students to find their own way of learning. I’ve spent the last 12 years teaching in various capacities.

I’ve taught martial arts to kids and developed a curriculum that was geared specifically to enhance their development.

I spent several years, first as a volunteer and then professionally, working with children suffering from autism and Asperger’s — trying to help them learn to deal with the world around them and to learn from their environment. Finally, it was while helping a child that I was asked to work at the Toronto School Board. While I was there, I helped out with kids who were learning English, and my love of teaching ESL began.

Teachers or other English schools who are interested in using these lessons, please go ahead and use them. That’s what they’re here for!

If you want to learn more about English grammar, vocabulary, and idioms, or if you have any other English questions or suggestions, feel free to go to the engVid forum and leave a message.

I hope you find the lessons fun, and valuable to helping you on your journey of English learning. Thanks for the support. what are you waiting for? Subscribe already.

EngV > > Блог об английском языке > Сайты по английскому языку > – видеоуроки английского от носителей языка

Все мы не раз слышали, что лучше всего брать уроки английского языка у… носителей английского языка! Кому как не учителю-англичанину (американцу, канадцу, австралийцу и т. д.) лучше знать, когда употреблять Present Perfect, а когда Present Continuous, в чем разница между though и although или чем отличаются разные варианты английского. К счастью для нас, очень многому можно научиться, не посещая курсы с преподавателями-иностранцами (которые еще и днем с огнем не сыщешь) и не выезжая за границу. Это возможно с помощью замечательного сайта

Что такое и для кого он предназначен – это образовательный сайт для изучающих английский язык, на нем собраны видеоуроки английского, подготовленные преподавателями-носителями языка. Миссия проекта – “создать качественный образовательный ресурс по английскому языку, доступный каждому” (To make quality English language education available to everyone).

Уроки на рассортированы по трем уровням сложности: Beginner – Intermediate – Advanced. Но должен сразу предупредить, что если вы только приступили к изучению языка, то для вас, возможно, будет сложноват даже Beginner. Большая часть материалов рассчитана на учащихся, имеющих хотя бы базовый словарный запас и понимающих на слух неспешную отчетливую речь (впрочем, можно включить субтитры).

Тематика видеоуроков английского языка

На представлены видеоуроки на самые разные темы, многие снабжены субтитрами. Уроков снято уже более 800 (!), они охватывают грамматику, культурные различия, разные языковые нюансы, словарный запас, идиомы, произношение, акценты, подготовку к TOEFL и IELTS. Пожалуй, нет такой темы в изучении английского языка, которую бы не затронули учителя с

Полезные сайты по английскому языку:

Мне очень нравятся уроки на тему лексики и культуры. В “лексических” уроках преподаватели рассказывают о словах и выражениях на разные темы, особенностях их употребления, о разных тонкостях, которые, как правило, проходят мимо словарей, узнать их можно только от носителя языка. Из “культурных” уроков вы узнаете, к примеру, особенности уличного британского сленга (street British slang), как пройти таможенный досмотр или что такое Хеллоуин.

Команда учителей

Уроки для создает более-менее постоянный штат учителей – очень интересных, талантливых специалистов! Довольно скоро вы будете знать их в лицо, привыкнете к особенностям речи, учителя станут для вас не менее родными, чем ведущий любимого ток-шоу.

У каждого преподавателя свои любимые темы и свой подход к изложению материала. Важно, что команда учителей – интернациональная, вы познакомитесь с разными вариантами английского. Вейлен, к примеру, родом из Сиэтла (США), ее произношение, интонация голоса и даже, пожалуй, жесты совсем не такие, как у Джейд из Великобритании, которая говорит на разновидности английского, характерного для юго-востока Англии (Estuary English). А вот Ронни живет в Канаде, правда отличает ее не столько акцент, сколько эксцентричная манера преподавания. “I’m a bit of a “nutter””, – пишет про себя Ронни (“Я немножко ненормальная”), и с этим трудно не согласиться!

Заключение – полезный ресурс для изучающих английский язык. Помимо тем, представленных в уроках, он хорошо подходит для развития навыка понимания на слух (слушать речь носителей языка). Если вы ищете видеоуроки английского и ваш уровень достаточен для понимания речи нейтив-спикеров, сослужит вам неоценимую службу. будет тяжеловат тем, кто только начал осваивать азы английского, однако чем раньше вы начнете слушать речь носителей языка, тем быстрее научитесь ее понимать.

Успехов вам в изучении английского языка!

Если ваша главная задача сейчас – развитие навыка понимания на слух, обратите внимание на Puzzle English. Этот сервис задуман специально для развития этого навыка, в том числе и у начинающих.

Друзья! Меня часто спрашивают, но сейчас я не занимаюсь репетиторством. Если вам нужен учитель, я ОЧЕНЬ рекомендую этот чудесный сайт — там есть учителя носители (и не носители) языка на все случаи жизни и на любой карман Я советую этот сайт, потому что сам прошел более 80 уроков с учителями, которых там нашел — и советую попробовать вам!

There’s also a really cool collection of videos for words you’ll hear in the news. The videos are short but filled with a lot of really good information.

Children love being read stories and the British Council’s YouTube channel also features animations of favorite children’s tales including “Goldilocks and the Three Bears,” “Jack and the Beanstalk” and “Little Red Riding Hood.” As with the nursery rhymes, the cartoons are accompanied by subtitles in English.

The channel also features a “word of the week” English language video series where you can see and hear children from around the world say a new word.

6. Business English Pod

7. VOA Learning English

VOA is something a bit different. The channel offers subtitled news reports that are read out at slower speeds than normal. This gives the viewer time to hear every word clearly and to see the shape of the announcer’s mouth as he or she reads the script.

Britlish takes a different approach from many other language learning channels. It concentrates learning around interesting things that you may encounter. For example, there are lessons about the vocabulary you will need at an airport, creepy-crawlies (insects) and types of musical instruments.

The narration is straightforward and accompanied by subtitles and occasionally some fascinating scenes. The lessons all link to follow-up interactive elements on the Britlish website, which are also free.

These are slick, bite-sized five-minute English lessons that are aimed at English language learners at every level, from absolute beginners to advanced students.

11. Learn American English

This channel’s videos are designed to help you learn English quickly and include real American slang, idioms and phrasal verbs.

This is a good introduction to common American words that differ from their English counterparts.

Well, that’s my list of 11 great channels to learn English with YouTube. With these great free English learning videos, nothing stands between you and fluency!

    Ultimate guide to the best English lessons on Youtube

    Technology is changing the face of ESL and it’s time throw away your dusty textbooks and get online!

    The age of books and blackboards is making way for exciting new learning strategies and internet-based content is king. English lessons on Youtube are an essential part of this new ESL revolution and offer students a new way of engaging with the language. In this comprehensive study guide we review some of the best channels offering English video lessons online.

    Why study English through video?

    Today, the internet is fundamentally changing the way we learn by providing unrestricted access to a vast range of information. According to some sources, streamed video content now accounts for around 50% of all global internet traffic. This statistic shows that more people now prefer to receive information in video format than through reading large volumes of text. ESL is one sphere that has embraced this new trend with open arms. Learners can now opt for a more blended approach to study by incorporating English video lessons into their personal education plans.

    English lessons on Youtube

    Youtube has videos on just about every subject imaginable but it can take time to separate the good apples from the bad. In this comprehensive guide to the best English lessons on Youtube we’ve done the hard work so you don’t have to. Let’s get to the videos!

    Top 10 Youtube channels for English video lessons:

    1) BBC Learning English on Youtube – This official BBC channel contains some great material on British English pronunciation as well as other interesting content covering a wide variety of subject matter. Lessons focus on everything from simple introductions to English grammar issues. Well worth a watch!

    2) British Council Learning English on Youtube – Another well-known British educational establishment offering online video lessons for learners of English. Most content is aimed at younger and lower level learners but there are also videos (especially situational role plays) that may interest all students. English lessons mostly cover simpler aspects of grammar and vocabulary.

    3) James (from Engvid) – Something of an internet celebrity, this American teacher has an engaging style and makes English video lessons with a touch of humour. His videos are for learners of varying levels (see tags) and provide information on modern American English usage. Lessons are conducted in front a whiteboard to improve understanding and retention.

    4) Online Teachers UK – Our very own Youtube channel offering educational videos on a wide range of topics. Alex Jude (Head of OTUK) is a qualified British linguist and provides insights into modern usage as well as specific material on typical mistakes made by Russian speakers in English.

    5) Dave Nicholls – Another experienced British English teacher. His video lessons primarily focus on grammar issues and vocabulary (especially phrasal verbs) but Dave also produces material to assist students with exam preparation. New English lessons are uploaded to Youtube each week so you’ll never need to wait long for the next instalment!

    6) Anglo-Link – Long-established Youtube channel with plenty of lessons from Minno – a British English tutor. The main focus of this channel is on tricky aspects of English grammar and pronunciation. Some videos have been produced in collaboration with other native English teachers, which helps to develop a fuller understanding of the material covered.

    7) Rachel’s English – American accent training from an experienced online teacher. Her video lessons will help you gain a good grasp of American English sounds and how they are produced (some theory involved). There are clear diagrams and Rachel presents her material in a clear and engaging style. Great for those who are learning American English.

    8) Doing English with Julian – A rather eccentric Englishman offering video lessons on learning strategies, lexical distinctions, idioms and other confusing aspects of the English language. Some content is filmed when Julian is out and about, which adds a new dimension to his videos.

    9) Chris Workman – Yet another eccentric Englishman eager to help the ESL world! In his video lessons, Chris explains about everyday English, including regional accents and slang usage. He also has several “sing-along” lessons in which he plays English songs on the guitar. Although his singing may not get him on MTV, his English study videos are certainly worth watching if you’re after something a bit different!

    10) Collolearn – Dubbed by some “The American rapper-tutor”, this teacher has a unique style all of his own! Many of his Youtube videos use rap in the classroom to encourage students (some of whom look a little shocked!) to remember vocabulary through rhyme. An altogether unusual approach, but one that is certain to engage.
