unique page of example sentences for beginner / pre-int learners


I was looking through my bookmarks and came across this site I had forgotten.

This is a pretty UNIQUE resource for beginner / pre-intermediate students so I'm posting it on italki.


It's a list of common words with a bunch of example sentences / matching audio files.  Good for the "listen 5 x / read the sentence, notice the words (count how many words, notice the collocations, etc/ close your eyes and try to recall (speak) the sentence" practice, etc.


[M] [T] It's business.

[M] [T] Business is business.
[M] [T] He's away on business.
[M] [T] I am here on business.
[M] [T] None of your business.
[M] [T] He traveled on business.
[M] [T] It's none of my business!
[M] [T] This is my business address.
[M] [T] He has taken over his father's business.
[M] [T] His business was only a partial success.
[M] [T] It's my business to investigate such things.
[M] [T] My father often goes to America on business.
[M] [T] I'm not yet used to writing business letters.
[M] [T] We will now report on this year's business results.
[M] [T] I canceled my appointment because of urgent business.
[M] [T] Are you seriously thinking about starting your own business?


I am sharing this as much for teachers, too (???) because there are tons of exercises here and the site is free / no sign in required, it's low-tech for people with slow connections, etc.  






Yes Monday, this is an excellent resource I really believe we learn best through listening and imitating our target language.
