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.

I work with students from a number of countries. With some I only communicate in English, but when I'm working with German speakers, I can add additional value because I also speak German. Today I'm looking at how it can help if you have a teacher who speaks your language, and what you need to be careful about in this situation.

Today isn't about teaching you something. I am sharing an experience that I had a couple of weeks ago. I would consider myself to be an advanced learner of German, but a friend showed me that when I'm writing, I know a lot of words in my target language, but I don't sound the same as I do in my native language.
This doesn't happen so much in less formal situations, but when there's more pressure, or you're doing something that you don't do all the time - how well do your natural style and personality come across in your target language? That's the question that I'd like to ask you today!

When I asked on the English with Kirsty page about the most difficult sounds in English, someone said that they find the "th" sound difficult to say. Actually there are two "th" sounds, and in this episode I talk about them,give some examples of words that have these sounds in them, and point out some of the mistakes that people make.

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.
