Britisch-englische Redewendungen, die Sie vielleicht noch nicht kennen


Wenn Sie den Bespeaking-Blog schon eine Weile lesen, dann wissen Sie, dass wir das Lernen von Redewendungen (idioms) für eine großartige Möglichkeit halten, eine Sprache zu lernen. Eines der Probleme beim Englischlernen ist jedoch, dass es verschiedene Arten von Englisch gibt, die man lernen kann. Amerikanisches Englisch und britisches Englisch sind die beiden wichtigsten Englischarten, die man als Nicht-Muttersprachler (non-native speakers) lernen kann, aber die Menschen in Irland, Kanada, Australien, Neuseeland und anderen englischsprachigen Ländern haben eine andere Art, Dinge zu sagen, einen anderen Slang und andere Redewendungen als die anderen. Deshalb gibt es einige britisch-englische Redewendungen, die den Menschen [...]

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), [...]

Root Word Sect: To cut


What do the words section, insect, and segment all have in common? All three of these words stem from the root word sect, which means to cut. Many different words come from the root word sect, and it's easy to see why, if you look at the words all together and compare them. Insect, for example, has the root word sect because it looks like insects are "cut" from three different pieces. An intersection, where two roads come together, comes from the root word sect because one road "cuts" another. This is just part of the reason why we love root words here at Bespeaking! It's interesting to see the origins of words and [...]

Root Word: LIG – to tie / bind


Have you ever heard the phrase "the ties that bind?" It's used to talk about the connections that people have that keep them together, such as how siblings (sisters and brothers) know each other so well because they have the shared experience of growing up. But thinking of the phrase "the ties that bind" is a great way to remember the root word lig. The root word lig comes from Latin and means to tie or bind something. There are many words in English that use the root word lig, and many of them talk about relationships, responsibilities, and beliefs. In other words, things that tie us [...]

Like the root word cult, this baby, too, will grow!


Root Word Cult: to Grow You may have heard the word cult in reference to extreme religious sects. I don't know about you, but I think a good documentary about a cult is fascinating! But did you know that the root word cult actually means "to grow"? If you think about the word cult when it comes to the religious meaning, they definitely grow out of a certain belief. If you take a look at the words that have the root word cult in them in English, you'll see that they all have something to do with things growing. Whether it's a culture that develops in a society, or viticulturists (people who grow grapes [...]

Root Word Se: To keep something apart Have you ever had a secret that you want to keep away from someone? Or severed something from something else? Or even selected something?

They can be especially tricky because they look and sound similar to each other. We want to clear up the differences between them, so read [...]
