Adjectives to Describe People

Welcome to the Scrambled Eggs blog! Here you can find many different resources with which you can learn English. There are listening exercises, grammar exercises, vocabulary boosters and all kind of interesting articles on a variety of topics! Leaning English should be fun, so we hope you like what you see and hear.

We know learning new vocabulary is always fun, especially when you can use the words to talk about the people you love…and the ones you don’t! This is why we have created the following exercises to help you learn and remember some new adjectives that can be used in a wide variety of situations, for example:

“Hey Tom, why are you late to the meeting?”
“I’m sorry, my neighbour saw me leaving my house this morning and decided to tell me about her new cat. She is very chatty and I couldn’t get away!”

Or you could even talk about the teacher you hated in high school.

“Hey look! Mr. Thomas, your old science teacher is over there.”
“Not Mr. Thomas, he was the worst teacher ever! He was always so uptight and never let us have any fun in class.”

Now it is your turn to practice using these interesting adjectives!

Phobias

In today’s blog we are going to talk about phobias, which are defined as an excessive fear of an object or situation. While phobias seem to be a common thing that many people have, only around 8-10% of people are actually diagnosed with one! Interestingly enough, there are around 400 known phobias that one may have, but the good news is they are not very common and they can be treated! Let’s look at a couple interesting phobias before we begin:

Ablutophobia – A fear of bathing.

Arachibutyrophobia – A fear of peanut butter getting stuck to the roof of your mouth.

Nomophobia – A fear of not having your cell phone.

Turophobia – A fear of cheese.

In this blog, we will listen to an audio about getting treatment for a phobia of flutes! Let’s get started!

Now try the following exercises:

Phobias | Fill in the Blank

Complete the sentences with the right word.

Phobias | True or False

Congratulations, you worked hard enough to make it to the end of our blog! How did it go? Did you learn anything new about phobias after completing the exercise? Do you have a phobia of your own? Let us know in the comments below! We are always available to answer any questions that you may have!

There are many little things you could do at home to help your children learn numbers in English. Start by asking them how many things we need. For example, at dinner time you could ask: how many forks do we need? Or how many chips are on your plate? When you are out in the streets you could ask: How many red cars do you see? Or how many bicycles do you see? All these questions not only teach them how to use numbers but help them learn new words too. Hearing parents speak English will also give them a little boost of confidence in trying out the language.
