Hi students welcome back I’m Julia your online tutor for those who new to the
course welcome back, to all my other students. Today’s lesson is very
important I would really like you to study hard because you’re going to
finish with a some any, every exercise so that’s your goal today. Your goal is
obviously to work on your confidence your spelling your listening skills your
pronunciation and your fluency all those things. But the grammar point today is
very interesting very useful some any every words that can be used before
nouns so they can be determiners and they can also be used alone as a pronoun.
So that’s very interesting so at this point I would like you to focus on those
words. Obviously spend some time after watching the dialogue learn the
vocabulary every dialogue contains some everyday English which will help you
express your ideas and communicate in English. The third step is usual is
grammar so this is the grammar focus every any and some. And then the Q&A; the
questions and answers will repeat some of the vocabulary and some of the
grammar of today’s lesson and finally you will end up coinciding with me again.
During the recap part of the lesson and at that point I would like you to feel
confident with the vocabulary of the day and the grammar if by then you still
have some doubts. hopefully the grammar recap part with
help and if you still have doubts don’t worry it’s completely normal.
This is the very beginning still of the a1 course don’t hesitate to post your
comments post your questions or examples or doubts below in the comment section.
Okay students I’m now going to let you study and I will see you a little later.
Bye bye

English Grammar

3/ The verb “to have” /  Some, Any  Every exercise

a/ The verb “to have”
The verb “to have” in the present simple is conjugated as follows:

Positive form: I have, you have, he/she/it has, we have, you have, they have
> “has” is only for the 3rd person singular (he, she, it).
> “have” is for all the other singular and plural forms
The verb “to have” can be in a contracted form too. It is called the short form:
Short positive form:
I’ve, you’ve, he’s, she’s, it’s, we’ve, you’ve, they’ve

Negative form: I have not, you have not, he/she/it has not, we have not, you have not, they have not
The verb “to have” can be in a contracted form too. It is called the short form:
2 different Short negative forms are possible:

I haven’t, you haven’t, he/she/it hasn’t, we haven’t, you haven’t, they haven’t

b/ Some, Any, and Every
“Some any every  exercise always use these words in front of a noun.

“Any” is used for negative and question* statements:
i.e. Have you any brothers?
It isn’t any better.
There isn’t any time!

“Some” is used for positive statements and sometimes questions:
i.e. I have some cousins.
It has some nice music.
Have you some change?**

* For questions, we use “any” when we are asking an open question, we do not expect a “yes” or a “no”. Either answer can be expected. Therefore it is considered more polite in certain contexts.
** For questions when we use “some” it generally means that we expect the answer to be “yes”. It is considered less polite in certain contexts.

“Every” is used for positive statements:
i.e. Every Monday I am here.
Every day I work. / I work every day.

Lesson 7 recap with Julia

Hi guys and welcome back!

Let’s do a quick recap together of Lesson 7! The vocabulary here is sometimes quite familiar: the days of the week and animals.

But even with some of my high level English students, some of the days of the week are still difficult to pronounce. We are going to look at the days of the week and then we are going to highlight the 2 or 3 main difficulties so that you feel ultra confident when pronouncing these words.

Let’s just read the list together!

Repeat after me! Let’s do this!

Monday

Tuesday

Wednesday

Thursday

Friday

Saturday

Sunday

Let’s start with “Wednesday”! In one of our previous recap videos we saw the silent “D”

We ignore the “d” in “Wednesday

Repeat after me: “Wednesday

The 2 others days of the week that are difficult to pronounce are:

Tuesday” and “Thursday

So let’s try and associate those 2 words and the sounds they contain with other words containing that sound! This is a piece of advice that you can apply to lots of new words.

If you struggle with a sound, try to find another words or other words containing that sound, then go back to the word that you were struggling with, and you will you find it easy to pronounce.

Tuesday is like “chewing-gum”

Repeat after me: chewing-gum, chew, Tuesday

Thursday is similar to thirsty. They both contain the same sound: /TH/.

I am thirsty.

Repeat after me. Enunciate and exaggerate: thirsty

Thursday

Let’s repeat the 3 difficult words together:

Wednesday, Tuesday, Thursday

Let’s now look at animals!

Lots of the words are easy. Some of the words aren’t so easy. Let’s do both: the easy words and the difficult words.

The easy words. Repeat after me:
“dog”,

“cat”,

“pig”

Here are some slightly more difficult words:

chicken” > Some of my students, I don’t know why, say “kitchen”!

It is “chicken”, not “kitchen”.

Repeat after me: “chicken

racoon

You can spell the word with 1 or 2 “C” “racoon” or “raccoon

a racoon > a nice long “ooo” sound

horse > pronounce that H. It is not a silent letter.

a horse

horses

And now let’s look at a random list of words contained in today’s lesson!

Let’s pronounce them together! Repeat after me:

of” / “off

Do you hear the difference? “of” / “off

A bit of a review here! We saw this word last time:
cousin

Repeat after me:
cousin

And of course, you saw the verb “to have” today:

have / has

have / has

Exaggerate this so that you practise the positioning of your tongue and your teeth.

How open or closed should your mouth be? So really practise pronouncing in front of
a mirror! First practise with me, then go and stand in front of a mirror and say:

“I have, he has, she has…”

Really work on your enunciation! It will make you more confident. And when it is time to speak it is not like “??? …  How do I do this?”

You mouth is prepared. You have rehearsed. You have practised and made all those muscles and parts of your mouth work so that it is easier to pronounce.

That’s it for today!

I’ll see you soon!

Bye bye!
