A Skeleton's Lament

information This is the Britlish 2014 Halloween offering. It's not your typical Halloween video and it's not your typical English lesson, but it was a great deal of fun to make and I hope you have as much fun watching it as I had making it. Happy Halloween! Lots of new language and expressions to help develop your English.

Dragonfly

information An exploration of a photograph of a beautiful dragonfly. The lesson is just three and a half minutes long, but gives you 10 vocabulary words and 10 sentences using the words in the context of the photograph. The visual component means that you will better remember the vocabulary and the way it is used. This is also a great way to practice for exams such as FCE, which ask you to describe photographs.

information Nastaran from Iran wrote to me and asked what are combinations such as 'flora and fauna', 'predator and prey', 'pros and cons', called? I’m not sure they have a particular name. They are sometimes called word pairs, but I prefer fixed pairs. Fixed pairs are fixed expressions that have words in a certain order and which sound very odd if the order is changed. There are many such expressions in English. In this lesson, we will look at the most common that I can think of. W

video 100 (One hundred) Podcasts

information In this one minute lesson I look at the problem of using "its" and "it's". It's a problem a lot of native English speakers have. Once you understand that "it" is a pronoun, and that apostrophes indicate a missing letter, you will have no more problems with using these words. In deference to some students who commented on the first One Minute English lesson that it was too fast, I have put less words into this one. There are 117 words in total; 100 less than the first lesson. Don't forget to use
