B2 Flavour vocabulary

What’s your favourite type of food? Do you like savoury dishes or do you have a sweet tooth? I particularly go for savoury, but I also sometimes crave for chocolate. Here’s another of my tacky videos (sorry, I don’t have a good video editor, but I’ll finally get round to it. Promise!). This video covers intermediate vocabulary for flavours and some types of food. I hope you find it useful.

B2 Vegetable vocabulary 3

The last of a series of videos that cover vegetable vocabulary. Which is a sort of relief because I’m pretty tired of the music that I’m using to cover the horrible white noise that I can’t get rid of when recording an audio. I’m also tired of hearing my voice over and over again and even feel a bit embarrassed. But there’s such a lot of vocabulary to cover, that I think it’s better to put the words into small chunks with the pronunciation, the images and even the phonetic transcription. Anyway, I hope the effort was worth it and you find these videos useful. (fingers crossed!)

ps. You can always turn the sound down!

Below this video you’ll find a link to a crossword or you can download with keys.

B2 Cooking vocabulary 3

Hello! Here’s a tacky video quiz that presents nearly all the cooking vocabulary for intermediate 2. If you want to practise your spelling, you’ll also find a crossword in this blog entry. By the way, the video says it’s the second in a series of two, but it’s actually number three. The thing is that I can’t stand having to get it sorted out right now. Sorry!

C1/C2 Open cloze ‘Painkillers could affect nurturing’

This week we’ll be dealing with health, so this means that I’ll be posting some ‘extra stuff’ on this particular topic. Today I’m posting an open cloze on painkillers and the possible side effects. Remember that there may be other possible answers, but doing an activity online means that the program will only accept the answer that I introduced as the solution.

A1/A2 Countable and uncountable nouns

Countable and uncountable nouns in English are on many occasions sort of confusing and sometimes beginners need some picture activities to help them memorize some of the words in English that are uncountable. It may be a bit of a drag, but as a matter of fact, if you don´t know them you will have some problems when you have to use determiners like `much and many`.  Here´s a quick drag-and-drop quiz to help remember some of the rules.
