Using Subheadings to Predict Content

Sometimes passages are divided into paragraphs that have subheadings. we can use our knowledge of the topic and these subheadings to predict some of the ideas that may be in the passage.

Choose TraveLingua!

Every year, thousands of students choose to study abroad for the summer— whether it’s for six months, a year, or even longer. Many people find the experience of studying abroad very exciting, but also very scary. Let TraveLingua give you some advice.

slide10

Why do it?

Living in another country will help you learn a language and learn about another culture. You will see the world in a new way and learn more about yourself. Studying abroad is also excellent training for the working world. Many companies want employees who speak a second language or who have experienced living or working in another country.

slide11

Making the right choice

To choose the right country or school, ask yourself these questions: For how long do I want to study abroad? Do I want to live with a host family,1 with roommates, or alone? How much can I afford to pay? If you aren’t sure how to answer these questions, our experienced staff can help!

slide12

Getting ready to go

Based on our experience, it’s best to get your passport and visa2 early! Before you go, learn as much of the language as you can and read about the customs of your host country. Also, talk with people who have experience studying abroad. And call the school to make sure someone can meet you when you get there. Make sure to bring some local money and a credit card.

slide13

Once you are there

Be curious and open to meeting new people and having new experiences. Don’t expect to always be comfortable. After the first few weeks it’s usual to feel a little homesick. You’ll miss your family and friends. Remember that it takes time to get used to a new place with new customs. Talk to your new friends and write about your feelings. Try to keep in touch with the people back home.

slide14

TraveLingua helps you get started on your journey by doing all this, and more. Choose us as your travel partner, and we’ll be sure to get you where you want to go!

Reading for Details

Reading for details is especially useful when we need to get information from one part of a larger passage. We can scan the passage to find out which part we need to read more carefully, and then look for specific details.

My Travel Journal

September 13

Hi Journal! It’s me, Maria! I arrived in New York city two weeks ago. I am writing this journal for one of my classes. My teacher says it is a good way for me to practice writing in English and to write about my experiences here in the United States. So far, I like New York and my school. I have three classes a day. Most of my classmates come from Japan, Korea, Poland, Germany, and Brazil. There aren’t many Italian students, so I have to use English most of the time. I am learning a lot! I am living in student housing, and I have my own comfortable room.

slide30

October 20

My English is hopeless! I was on the bus this morning and a man spoke to me, but I hardly understood him. I was so embarrassed. Why is my English improving so slowly? I want to make lots of American friends, but this isn’t happening so easily. I feel shy, and it is hard for me to talk to people, even my classmates! I like them, but sometimes I can’t understand them very well. I’m feeling homesick. I miss my friends and family.

slide31

October 27

I went to a school party last Friday and it was awesome. I talked with a Japanese man named Kenji and a Polish woman named Anna. We talked about our countries’ customs and our experiences in the States so far. We are going to walk around the city together this weekend. Also, Kenji wants me to write for the student newspaper here at school. Maybe things are getting better!

Adjectives Ending in -ed

Some adjectives that describe how we are feeling end in –ed. Most of these adjectives come from verbs with the same root word. For example, from the verb interest we can make the adjective interested by adding –ed. For verb that end in y, we change the y to an i and add –ed; for example, worry becomes worried.

Writing an English Journal

Writing a journal is a good way to remember your thoughts and experiences, to keep a record of what you learn, and to practice your English writing skills. You can keep a journal of all your daily experiences, or about one subject such as travel, books you read, or how your studies are going.
