Knifflige Englische Aussprache


Diese Woche feiert der Bespeaking Blog sein einjähriges Jubiläum! Crystal und ich möchten Ihnen dafür danken, dass Sie uns in diesem Jahr so unterstützt und jede Woche so treu gelesen haben. Wir hoffen, dass Sie mehr Vertrauen in Ihre Englischkenntnisse oder zumindest ein besseres Verständnis der englischen Sprache erlangen konnten. Und nun... zu einer kniffligen Aussprache! Diese Woche konzentrieren wir uns auf Besonderheiten der englischen Aussprache. Die folgenden zehn Wörter werden häufig verwechselt (sogar von Muttersprachlern); zum Teil, weil sie ähnlich geschrieben oder bei gleicher Schreibweise unterschiedlich ausgesprochen werden. Wir werden sowohl auf Aussprache als auch Schreibweise eingehen, um alle [...]

Bewegungen von Flüssigkeiten


Wenn man eine Sprache lernen will, erfordert das viel Hingabe und Anstrengung. Wenn man eine Sprache fließend (fluently) beherrschen will, sollte man sich auch einen großen Wortschatz aneignen. Zum Beispiel gibt es viele Beschreibungen für Bewegungen von Flüssigkeiten im Englischen. Die Wahl der Bezeichnungen für Bewegungen von Flüssigkeiten, ähnlich wie bei Wortschatz für Gewässer, hat mit der Menge der Flüssigkeit zu tun und damit, ob Flüssigkeit ungehindert fließen kann oder blockiert wird. Sind Sie bereit, Ihr Englisch auf die nächst höhere Stufe zu bringen? Dann lesen Sie weiter, um etwas über die unterschiedlichen Bezeichnungen für Bewegungen von Flüssigkeiten im Englischen zu lernen! [...]

Redewendungen mit get


Das Erlernen von Redewendungen mit get ist eine tolle Methode, um ein höheres Niveau in der englischen Sprache zu erreichen. Wenn Sie Redewendungen mit get beherrschen, kann Ihnen das zu einem natürlicheren Ausdruck in der Sprache verhelfen und Sie können vieles gleich besser verstehen. Allerdings sind Redewendungen mit get schwer zu übersetzen, da feste Wendungen generell für jede Sprache sehr spezifisch sind. Das macht es natürlich nicht leicht sie sich anzueignen und zu erlernen! Obwohl Redewendungen mit get ständig im Alltag verwendet werden und Sie sie wahrscheinlich auch oft hören, kann es schwer sein sie zu verstehen und man kann [...]

Root Word It: To Go


We've said it before, and we'll say it again. Root words are a great way to learn a language! Root words help you get the feeling for (understand) a language, since you can see where certain words come from and then make meaningful connections with other words. One of the most common root words in English is the root word it. The root word it, meaning go, is the base of many words that we use every day, such as exit, transit, and ambitious. Since the root word it means to go, all of these words have either something to do with the beginning of something (starting to go), [...]

Contronyms in English: Janus Words Part II


We all know that English can be a complicated language. This counts double (is twice as true) when it comes to contronyms. Contronyms, also called Janus words, are words that have two distinct (different), opposite meanings.

While contronyms can be tricky, we're here to help! This week, we've decided to look at some more common Janus words along with both meanings and examples to help you out. Learn these common contronyms and add them to your vocabulary! Apology Meaning #1: an admission (saying, acceptance) of [...]

Many and Much: Which one to Use?


We've talked on the blog before about when to use fewer vs. less, which are both opposites of the word more.  Another similar set (group) of words are many and much. Many and much are used in very similar circumstances (instances, situations) to fewer and less.

Persian Loan Words in English


English is such a wonderful mix of all different languages.  Many words in English come from different languages, and we call these words loan words.
