(This is a shorter version of my most popular lesson, Picture Description. The full Picture Description class is 50 minutes, but this "à la carte" version is only 25 minutes. It's great for people who don't have a lot of time in their busy schedules for an hour-long class. )
When speaking a foreign language, description is a very important skill to have, whether that includes describing a person, a thing, a place, a picture, or even how you feel. It's a very important element in communicating effectively in English. The more verb tenses, adjectives and adverbs you learn to use, the more precise your description will become.
So let's describe! I will bring images to class and send them to you via skype. You will describe it in your own words as best you can, and I'll type what you say. Then we will go over your text together. We will fix grammar or syntax errors and, most importantly, talk about word choice and natural phrasing... For example, maybe another adjective would have worked better in place of the one you used. Or maybe another verb tense would be more specific. Or maybe a sentence will be grammatically correct, but it doesn't sound natural to a native speaker. These are things we will improve in your own speaking.
I hope to see you in my class!
