We'd like to introduce a website to help learners improve their English at https://lingonut.com.
Lingonut helps you learn by reading and listening to fun and educational news. Each article comes with vocabulary notes and a quiz. In the future, learners can also save these notes to track their learning.
We're working hard to make the website a useful learning platform. Please let us know if you have any suggestions!
Hope this helps! Good luck and have fun learning!
Few years back I moved to Barcelona with zero Spanish, after months of Duolingo + tutors, I made small progress, but grammar was always a bit of pain.
When covid hit, me and my biddy decided to improve our Spanish grammar and built tool for ourselves. It's a mix of theory and flash cards on steroids for grammar, with zero setup and optemised learning plan.
We will be launching it next week, but would love to know your feedback on if that might be a problem for you and if what we do resonates with it. Feel free ro drop any suggestions and feedback.
Could you help me, how can I improve my speaking task:
From my point of view, the Polish education system has many failings, but the main failing is an attitude of many teachers in Polish schools. Firstly, the relation between student and teacher is too weak. It means that the teacher should discuss more with students. Moreover, the teacher ought to teach more individually. For example, if some students have many problems with speaking, the teacher should help him by giving advice, how to improve his speaking. I mean that the teacher should not only point out mistakes but also the teacher ought to help how to resolve the problem. In this case, the problem of students’ speaking. In other words, the teacher should be an instructor, who gives the student a helping hand.
A few years ago I heard in some English Podcast that ‘teaching is not just testing”. I totally agree with this statement. The most important value of teaching should be helping how to improve students’ abilities. That is why, I think, that the teachers and lecturers should reduce the number of tests during the school or the academic year.
Let’s move on to another disadvantage of the Polish education system. Personally speaking, I think that a core curriculum is inappropriate. In Polish middle schools, secondary schools and universities there are many unnecessary subjects, which are time-consuming, for instance: chemistry, Information Technology or biology. If some students are not keen on this subjects, and they are sure that these subjects are not their cup of tea, they should learn at the same time their preferred subjects such us English or Mathematics to polish up their abilities. If a student is not a biology fan, he should not waste their time in a subject which is not prospective for him or her.
The best solution to solve this problem is a new curriculum. The student is aware which subjects can be useful for him in the future, and which subjects are completely unnecessary for him or her.
To sum up, if we want to improve the Polish education system, Polish teachers should be more patient and should work with students more individually instead of working in groups. I do not want to criticize working in groups, but in my opinion, working in groups is less effective than individual work. What is more, teachers should reduce the number of tests because the tests take too much time. As I meant, the core curriculum should be also changed because there are too many unnecessary subjects.
ich beschäftige mich z.Z. mit Going-to-Future, Will-Future, Simple Present, Present Continuous. Dazu
mache ich eine kleine Übung, bei der ich entscheiden soll, ob die Zeit (speziell Going-to-Future, Will-Future richtig verwendet wurden). Da ich leider keine Lösung habe, wollte ich euch Fragen, ob ich richtig liege. Ich habe hinter jeden Satz geschrieben, welche Zeit verwendet wurde, ob richtig oder falsch und welche Zeit eigentlich richtig wäre (falls nötig). Was meint Ihr! Vielen Dank und viele Grüße!
