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 http://www.manythings.org I really believe we learn best through listening and imitating our target language.
