To be successful in the Snow Brawl game on the 23rd of February, you'll need to review how to make nouns plural in English and understand how to use 'a', 'an', and 'the' articles in English. In this blog, we'll explain these concepts in an ELI5 (explain like I'm 5) way, so even if you're new to English, you'll understand how to use nouns and articles correctly.
Making Nouns Plural:
To make a noun plural, you usually just add an "s" to the end. For example, one book becomes two books. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. If the word ends in "s," "x," "z," "ch," or "sh," you add "es" to make it plural. For example, one box becomes two boxes. Another exception is for words ending in a consonant and then "y." In this case, you drop the "y" and add "ies" to make it plural. For example, one baby becomes two babies. Finally, some words ending in "f" or "fe" change to "ves" to become plural, such as one knife becoming two knives. And some words ending in "o" add "es" to become plural, such as one potato becoming two potatoes.
In English, we use articles like 'a', 'an', and 'the' to talk about nouns. 'A' and 'an' are indefinite articles, which means they refer to any one thing of a particular type. We use 'a' before words that start with a consonant sound and 'an' before words that start with a vowel sound. For example, 'a cat' and 'an apple.' 'The' is a definite article, which means it refers to a specific thing or things. We use 'the' when we are talking about a specific person, place, or thing. For example, 'the cat in the tree.'
Many Japanese English-learners struggle with the concept of making nouns plural and using the correct articles in English. In Japanese, there is no concept of plurals or articles, so these English language concepts can be particularly challenging to grasp. However, with practice and exposure, learners can gain a solid understanding of these concepts. So... don't miss out on this great opportunity to learn and have fun with our LIVE event on the 23rd of February !
On Saturday, February 11, 26 students gathered for a unique and exciting English and Japanese language learning event - the Snow Brawl. The event was an unforgettable experience that combined education and entertainment.
The video above is a 1 minute highlight of the event.
The snow brawl event lasted about 30 minutes before my connection dropped, and students were able to answer 1779 questions, with 80% accuracy, covering various adjectives. The fast-paced game kept the students engaged and motivated, and they were able to put their language skills to the test in a fun and dynamic setting.
Overall, the Snow Brawl event was a success, with about 26 students leaving with newfound confidence in their language abilities and a greater appreciation for the learning process. This event was a testament to the power of interactive learning and its positive impact on students.
We can't wait to host similar events in the future, and we hope to see even more students joining us for these exciting and educational adventures. If you're looking for a fun and effective way to improve your language skills, be sure to stay tuned for our upcoming events!"
