Greetings and General Information

Well, my friends, I am facing another day of intense travelling tomorrow, which means I will not be able to post this newsletter at the scheduled time, so I decided to write it earlier rather than keep you waiting. :-D

A warm welcome to our new subscribers! I wish you will find My English Club fun and instructive and I look forward to welcome you as a new valued member soon. Read, learn and communicate around the world!

You and your friends can always subscribe individually through the form on My English Club . If anybody mentions to you that they are interested in receiving it, please tell them this, with thanks. Of course, you can also unsubscribe at any point, by using the link at the end of any issue of the e-zine, should you wish - no questions asked.

Until I'll have the time to write my e-books from these courses, you can enjoy our past lessons for free, as follows:

Grammar ~ Linking Sentences to Express Causality

For our new students or for those who are not aware of this, please note that 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 cause and effect. You shall find this on the Linking Sentences to Express Causality 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 ~ More Examples of Good Syntax

Due to the need of sufficient examples of good writing, before venturing into writing literature ourselves, I added a new page to our previous lesson on syntax. Please find today's lesson on the Observing Syntax page.

English for Work ~ Working as a Teacher or Tutor

Last week we considered the profession 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.

Today we are only introducing another couple of popular professions - those of teaching and tutoring. You can find this lesson on the Teaching vs. Tutoring page, where you can find some of the differences between the two, to cut away the confusion right from the start.

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
