Hi everyone,

I found a web site made by Online English Teacher Monika.
Here's her Web site -> Learn to love English
Monika Ford
I am a DELTA qualified teacher and I am working towards an MA qualification in English language teaching (TESOL). I have worked at the British Council in Budapest and have many years of experience working in the further education (FE) sector. I am currently a part-time tutor at York St John University.

I don't know if there're free resources there.

Here's her Facebook account -> Online English Teacher Monika -FB
On FB, Monika publishes exercises, questions, pictures, etc. Her pics are often taken from Grammarly (where I also pick up resources).

Monika's FB page is cool: my advice is to follow her.

Monika a écrit:Here is a puzzle for you:

What occurs twice in a lifetime, but once in every year. Twice in a week but never in a day?

Monika a écrit:What common English verb becomes its own past tense by rearranging the letters?
Monika a écrit:Read the story and solve the puzzle:

A man walks into a bar in Texas and asks for a glass of water.
The bartender pulls out a shotgun and points it at him.
The man says ' thank you' and leaves.
Why?

I have found the last story solution on the net "The man had the hiccups, so he wanted a glass of water to cure them. The bartender pulled out a gun to scare him, therefore curing his hiccups!" I desesperately wanted to have the solution...

Hi everyone,

Provided by Online English Teacher Monika; Nice lesson, thanks Monika!

As you watch the video, look at the examples of verbs + ing (the gerund) and verbs + infinitive. They are in red in the subtitles. Then read the conversation below to learn more. Finally, do the grammar exercises to check you

Hello Gérard, everyone
Here is my contribution
when I am speaking English at the polyglot I would like to turn into a native speaker to easily welcome people and carry on until the end of the evening. I am looking forward to achieving that. Very Happy

Good Muriel! Smile

The question (with an exclamation mark) was from Monika, not from me.

However -if you permit me- you cannot turn into a native speaker: you could look like a native speaker but never become one.
> until the end of the evening
I don't know what time your polyglot café begins but as far as I know, from tea time, it is "night" (the Brits use "night" earlier than the French say "nuit").

Hi everyone,

Posted by Monika on Facebook:
Online English Teacher Monika

These two sentences are a little strange. Can you work out why?

'All for one and one for all.'

'You can cage a swallow, can't you, but you can't swallow a cage, can you?'

Anyway I will try my best to sound native...

Very iportant lesson!!

NB: Let's notice that though a British teacher, Monica uses an
American page (theater and not theatre...)
Notice a theater, in the States, is a room in which they have films
-they call it movie-theater-

Thanks Monika! Good asset!

~~ edit
In fact, this picture comes from Grammarly.com
(Monika often picks up pictures from other sites -like me-: Grammarly, EngliskIsFun,Help2Say, etc.)
I'll try not to refer to Monika though she's precious as she's quick.

Why "Save The English Language"?
Because it's in danger
... due to English natives!!
