New movies coming!

This has been an exciting week of filming.

Last Saturday we filmed a version of the popular Chinese dating show 'Fei Cheng Wu Rao' (known as 'If You are the One' in Australia), with one male contestant and three lovely ladies:

What a perfect vehicle for teaching about conditional forms.

After that, we filmed a talent show that will be used for teaching the use of tenses in academic writing:
Look out for Adelaide's own Really Really Terrible Quartet and the wonderful Prince Wolfgang and the Medics, all competing to win 'You've got Talent'.

Our next stop was the historic Carrick Hill property, where we filmed 'With a Revolver in the Library' - look out for the movie in October to find out what happened to chef Harumi Kaga (and to learn more about prepositions).

There'll be three new movies and a new song out in October, along with grammar exercises and explanations!

Welcome to the English for Uni blog

This is the new blog for the English for Uni website.

Have a look at the resources on the webpage and use this page to ask questions for other readers to answer. I can't promise to answer all questions personally, but I hope we can start a community where we can comment on each other's questions.

You'll find materials on the English for Uni website to help you with different areas of English writing and academic literacy skills, such as essay writing:

        the passive voice



articles (a/an/the)


and oral presentation skills. 

You can watch humorous videos, view the explanations of difficult points of English grammar and academic skills, and try the exercises.

See you there!
