Good day everyone. Today I want to draw your attention to an important resource: "Real English" by the well-known American teacher of English, Michael Marzio.
You are probably familiar with his spontaneous street interviews with passers-by, who answer questions on their nationality, phone numbers, what the Americans/British/Italians/Germans are like, and similar. Right now I'd like to look at the Zodiac.
It's often said that our personalities are influenced by our Zodiac sign. For instance, a Libran like me is supposed to be well-balanced. But is this true for every Libran?
So navigate or surf over to "Real English" Lesson 7 - "What's Your Astrological Sign?"
As you watch, make a note of the signs and the personality traits associated with each one. Then, when you've finished, watch the video again, with subtitles. Same or different? Did you learn any surprising facts?
Tip: - Click on the video title at the top of the video window, so as to open the video in YouTube and enable Full Screen.
Question: What language is used, in English, to refer to Zodiac signs?
Write your answers to all these questions - signs and characteristics, and the language of the Zodiac - on the Tag Board or in a Comment.
P.S. You'll also find Michael Marzio's "Real English" in the list of useful sites, on the right below the Tag Board.
I look forward to reading your answers!
Have a nice day,
