There are many little things you could do at home to help your children learn animal vocabulary in English. Why not take a trip to the zoo and ask them how many animals they can name. Ask them to describe their favourite animal in English or their pets if they have any. Hearing parents speak English will also give them a little boost of confidence in trying out the language.

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!

Future Perfect Continuous

So you are doing something in the future up until a specific point in time. What verb tense would you use for this? Dah da daaaah, the future perfect continuous, of course! It is formed by subject + will + have been + verb in “ing” form.
An example would be “I will have been dancing for hours when the sun rises.” This describes that I will continue dancing until the mentioned point in time, when the sun rises. When the action starts is somewhat ambiguous though. I could have been dancing already, or I’m starting to dance now, or I won’t start to dance until the future, though before the sun rises. Think of it as you have projected yourself into the future, when the sun rises in this case, and you are looking back on all the dancing you have accomplished.
An important thing to note is that future perfect continuous is for action verbs only because it’s describing the duration of an action. For nonaction verbs (to be, to know, etc) you would use the future perfect tense. As a reminder the future perfect tense is formed by subject + will + have + past participle.

By the time I finish writing this blog, I will have been writing blog posts for three hours!
