Small business owners often hear the "work on the business not in the business" cliche. It's a cliche, because, we're afraid it's true. Business owners don't often give themselves time to think. The problem with this is that they end up on a reactive treadmill, neither considering what they want, nor working through how to change it. Then, they do …

Today I'm going to talk to you about future continuous and future perfect.

Most working "on" the business hap…
 
And today I'm going to talk to you about extreme adjectives. And also about the adverbs that qualify them or that go with them. So what do I mean by extreme adjectives? Well, we could divide the adjectives into two groups. Those adjectives which are gradable, we say, by gradable, we mean that those adjectives can be less or more.…
 
Today, I'm going to talk about language around the bicycle. When you get on your bicycle, you say you push off, you push off and you start pedalling. Isn't it lovely to go out on your bicycle on a sunny day, when it's not too hot, not too cold? At the moment, I'm cycling along the river - along by the side of the river. Now, I think the first thing…
 
Hello, and today I'm going to talk about the difference between formal and informal English. Now, it's very important to be able to distinguish between formal and informal English. Why?

Hello, and today, I'm going to talk to you about hypothesizing in English, or making hypotheses. So what do we mean by hypothesize? Well, it means that we talk about things that we would like to be true, but they seem impossible. So they're similar in a way to conditional sentences, like the second conditional. https://www.practisingenglish.com/pod…
 
And today we're going to talk about very large numbers, how to use them. And also an interesting article about outer space. Now, when we talk about numbers, I mean, large numbers, hundreds, thousands, millions, [billions] and trillions. Well, we usually use them in the singular. So we say a million, or 1 million, 2 million, two million five hundred…
 
We usually use the past continuous with words, like when, or as or while. So we often say, while she was coming home, a friend greeted her in the street. Or, as she was coming home, a friend greeted her in the street, or when she was coming home, a friend greeted her in the street.Por M. A. Bilbrough
 
What is reported speech? What "to report" means is to say something that has been said before. So really what we're doing is we're repeating something that somebody said earlier. And that's what reported speech is - we're reporting what we can call direct speech. Today, I'll discuss using questions, adverbs and imperatives with reported speech. See…

Modal auxiliaries - what are they? Well, words like can, could, may, might, would, shall, etc. And the problem is that they are defective. What does that mean? Well, they're not like other verbs. They don't have an infinitive, or they don't have a past participle form. Now, that means that if we're talking about can, well, what are we going to do i…
 
Today I'm doing another session on A2/B1 English for Cambridge exam or IELTS 4.5 and useful vocabulary. And the vocabulary category today is likes and dislikes.
