At the Doctors

Average: 4.1 (11 votes)

Here's an example of a real conversation at the doctors. Read through the exchange between the two people and try to re-order the letters of the underlined words to find the correct word! It is very important to learn some medical vocabulary, so that you are able to visit the doctor and understand their advice if there is a problem. Remember you can always take an English speaker with you if you are really nervous.

Beginner Level: Common Questions

Can you remember how to ask these questions? In each question there is one missing word. For example:

"___is your favourite teacher?"

The missing word is who.

Only use one word for each question and use the present simple.

If you have time, tell us your answers to these questions!

Writing Practice - what is your opinion?

Average: 3.8 (8 votes)

I recently had a Spanish oral test and I found it really helpful to predict the questions I thought they might and then ask my friend to ask me them.

It is difficult to do a speaking lesson for an online website, but with the help of a friend it can be done!

So, your challenge is to find a friend to ask you these questions and then practise away...!

After you have done the speaking, I’d be really interested to hear some of your answers!

Nationality Adjectives

Average: 3.2 (10 votes)

Country V. Nationality

A common mistake made by English learners is to confuse the nationality adjective with the name of the country a person is from. The rule is as follows:

I'm from + name of country: "I'm from Russia."
I' m + nationality adjective: "I'm Russian."

Are you describing the person or are you talking about the place?

In the following sentences can you choose which alternative you need? Good luck!
