Writing vs Reading

Learning in everyday life
Whether you're at home, on the bus, in the shops or at the doctors surgery, there are countless opportunities to help your child to learn. You can do this by talking with them and reading together, plus there are fun ways to develop their writing skills too.
Reading together
Reading stories with your child, if only for 10 minutes a day, helps build important skills as well as capturing your child's interest in books. Books are a rich source of information for your child as they contain words you might not use in everyday conversations. From their earliest days babies enjoy listening to stories and looking at books.
To help your child become a lifelong reader you can:
spend a few minutes a day telling stories and reading together, and make it fun by choosing books you both enjoy
talk about the pictures and characters in the books and make up your own stories
read as you walk down the street and round the shops, pointing out signs and words and talking about them
buy books as presents and join a local library

Download Ebook: How to Teach Basic English

Basic English, also known as Simple English, is an English-based controlled language created (in essence as a simplified subset of English) by linguist and philosopher Charles Kay Ogden as an international auxiliary language, and as an aid for teaching English as a Second Language. It was presented in Ogden's book Basic English: A General Introduction with Rules and Grammar (1930). Capitalised, BASIC is sometimes taken as an acronym that stands for British American Scientific International Commercial.

There are a number of phrases that are commonly used to introduce strangers.

(name), I don't think you've met (name).
I don't think you know (name)
May I introduce you to (name)
(name), do you know (name)?
(name), I'd like you to meet (name)

When you meet someone the first time, it is common to greet the person with "How do you do?" the correct response is "How do you do." Here is a short introductory conversation:

Ken: Peter, I'd like you to meet Mary.
Peter: How do you do?
Mary: How do you do.
Ken: Mary works for ...

A variation is also "It's a pleasure to meet you." or "Pleased to meet you."

Ken: Peter, I'd like you to meet Mary.
Peter: It's a pleasure to meet you.
Mary: How do you do.
Ken: Mary works for ...

Ken: Peter, I'd like you to meet Mary.
Peter: How do you do?
Mary: Pleased to meet you.
Ken: Mary works for ...

In informal situations, especially in North America, introductions are also made simply saying: "This is (name)." It is also common to just say "Hi" or "Hello" as a response in this informal setting.

Ken: Peter, this is Mary.
Peter: How do you do?
Mary: Pleased to meet you.
Ken: Mary works for ...

It is also quite common to shake hands when you are introduced. After the initial introduction, hand shaking generally takes place in more formal, business situations. Otherwise, people just say "Hi."

One day a Lion slept in the jungle. A tiny mouse ran over the Lion’s head and down his nose. The Lion awoke with a loud roar. He was very angry. His paw caught the little mouse.
The Lion opened his huge jaws to swallow the mouse “Pardon me. O King, I beg of you. “Cried the frightened mouse.
“If you forgive me this time, i will never forget your kindness. I meant no harm and I certainly didn’t want to disturb your majesty. If you let me stay a live, I can do you a good turn, too”.
The Lion began to laugh. He laughed and laughed. “How could a tiny creature like you ever do anything to help me ? “And he shook with laughter. “Oh well, “he shrugged, looking down at the frightened mouse,” you’re not so much of a meal anyway.
Then, he released his paw from the mouse and the mouse quickly ran away.
Some time after this, some hunters, tried to capture the Lion alive. They set up rope nets in the jungle. The Lion fell in to the trap. He roared and thras hed.
His thunderous bellows sent through the jungle.
The tiny mouse heard the Lion’s roars.
“That may be the Lion who once freed me” he said remembering his promise. And he ran to see whether he could help.
Discovering the sad Lion, the mouse said to him “Stop, stop ! you must not roar. If you make so much noise, the hunters will come and capture you. I’ll get you out of this trap”
With his shalp little teeth, the mouse gnawed at the ropes until they broke. The Lion stepped out of the het and was free. The mouse said. Now, wa i not right ?”
“Thank you, good mouse,” Said Lion gently. “You did help me. I see now that kindness is always worth while,’.

Using Descriptive Language: Words Paint Pictures

The storyteller's words are like a painter's colors. Changing just one word in a sentence can alter the picture or detail that a listener is imagining. For example, construct a sentence without any adjectives. Then more generous. Add some descriptive words and see how the picture evoked by the words changes. The more the storyteller says, the more the listener will "see" in their imagination.

No adjectives:
A man walked down the road.

Adjectives added:
A tattered old man walked down the hot dusty road.
A young man walked down a crowded city road.
