I'm a teacher, but I'm also a learner.

In October, I started a part-time university degree, and I'd like to share a couple of the things that I've learned and strategies that I've developed for those times when I don't understand something.

I'm doing an IT course, and my particular problems are usually related to maths, but these tips can also be applied to learning English.

Most of the time we use adverbs to describe verbs, because we're describing how we're doing something:

I slammed the door angrily.
However, if we're describing how someone feels, or how something looks, sounds, or tastes, we use an adjective, because we're describing that thing.
The food tastes delicious - not deliciously
The ring looks expensive - not expensively
I feel happy - not happily

Look can also be followed by an adverb if I say something like
look at these sentences carefully - because it's the way in which I want you to look.
These sentences look difficult - here we need an adjective, because I'm describing how the sentences look to me.

take it with you

Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:

Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:


This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:

Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.


Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
