advice and advise

morning everyone. how was the first task.easy or difficult? you must try.learning a language needs an effort.a lot of people they say they want to improve but they sit and do nothing.if you want to excel, you must put away the attitude ok:)

anyway today i want to explain, do you know the differences between advice and advise.as an English tutor, i find a lot of students misunderstand advice and advise.

advice (noun)-nasihat
-My mother gave me an advice before she left.

advise (verb)- menasihati
-I advise you to stop smoking

now can u see the difference?another tip is for advise (verb) , u can change it to past tense. for example: advised. however, u cannot do "adviced" right.

that's all for today.hope you can gain something from here

lesson no.1

hi everyone.thanks for joining me here.so are you ready to start our lesson?now i am going to provide you notes about phrasal verbs (oxford, n.d)

put away -return to its proper place
put by -save
put in -spend time or energy doing
put off -discourage/delay
put out -extinguish
put through-connect by telephone

now what you should do:
understand these phrasal verbs (u may google or find dictionaries).don't ask me ok..then write one sentence for each (on your own please)and post here.

p/s:we are going to do peer editing.not only me.your friends here as well are going to read and edit your sentences.don't feel shy after all we are all learning right.best of luck!

today's teaching

just got back from teaching.

i am so happy cos i managed to turn the class from really quiet to lively as usual:)n one reluctant student to become a happy student yeay.even though they're not my students.i have 46-year-old-housewife student.well who said age matters:)

well i admit, if you join my class, u wont have any chance to sit and relax.i will force you to open your mouth.ehehehe.. and write.that's my secret recipe in teaching:)
i do this because i love my students.. not to drill them..there is no shortcut to master in english if u don't practise it.

that's all for now..love all my students:)
