Grammar ~ Linking Sentences to Express Time

Again, starting on the grammatical concepts page Pre-communicative Practice , you will be able to enter the contents page of all the linking categories, on the Linking signals (general) page.

However today we have a lesson on linking sentences together, to express ideas relating to time and timing. You shall find this on the Linking Sentences to Express Time page. This is a short explanatory lesson to which I shall have to add some exercises sooner or later, but I hope you can at least familiarise yourselves with this matter for now.

Writing ~ Recipe for a Bestseller

We are starting to look into what actually makes good writing. In fact, not 'just' good writing, but because we mentioned a recipe for a bestseller before, I thought why not expand on this aspect for a bit longer?

Please find today's lesson on the Recipe for a Bestseller page. There's more to come on this matter, since other authors may have other recipes from which we can learn some useful writing tricks.

English for Work ~ Working as a Translator or Interpreter

We are leaving the profession of copywriting, for an even more popular one: that of a translator or interpreter. Please don't confuse these two - they complement each other - they both involve translation, but the former is usually in writing and the latter is done verbally and simultaneously.

You can find this lesson on the Working as a Translator or Interpreter page, where you can find the skills you need in order to master the art of using your English to help other people understand each other - have you ever believed you can do such a thing?

Well, there is nothing to keep you from it, apart from three things:
- the skills mentioned in today's lesson;
- a strong belief in yourself and your abilities (to do this type of work, or to train yourself on how to do it);
- a few good clients who are willing to employ your skills for their projects.

This is it for now, my friends!

I hope you find this information useful and not too confusing. Even though you're at the stage of building on it, have patience at this point in your learning and you'll be able to reap the fruit of your work later on, whichever aspect of our lessons you are concentrating on.

Please feel free to comment and suggest your ideas by replying to this email - I look forward to hearing from you. If you wish to chat either with me or with other members worldwide, go to My English Club .

All the best from me until next time,

Lucia da Vinci

Founder of My English Club
