It's important to know how to speak about the most common IT professions and their responsibilities. Whether you work in a company or just plan to get hired you need to be able to communicate about this basic topic. In this lecture you will learn how to speak about major IT professions. And more importantly you will get lots of very useful words to describe what you do. It's a lifesaver for interviews, conferences and events!
The lecture includes the list of most common equipment used in both professional environment and everyday life. Most probably you will find a lot of words familiar, but it's good to make sure you pronounce and use them correctly. And if you've ever wondered how to call the little thing you plug into computer when you use the wireless mouse... well, the answer is there:)
Are you ready for this? These programming terms are commonly used in most languages, so this is the background for everything you will learn later. Knowing and understanding these terms will greatly help you kick start your further learning in your specific area - you can watch tutorials in English, read articles in English, surf the English version of Stack Overflow and read through the basic documentation. Another big bonus for you here is actually hearing the words and working with pronunciation.
Almost each profession has it's own slang, i.e. words and pharses which can be understood only by the people working in the field. It also makes you sound cool in front of your colleagues...or not if you try too hard:) Check out our selection and share your favourite talk in the comments!
It's difficult to overestimate the meaning of grammar. Grammar is everything! So in this lecture we start with the basic tenses: Present Simple - to talk about your everyday routine at work or permanent things in life, and Present Continuous - to talk about things happening now.
Have you ever been in a meeting and got a great idea but just didn’t know how to start talking about it? If you answered yes, then this lesson is just what you need. Here we’ll present 3 ways of making suggestions in English. Using them will make your speech smoother and easier to understand.
"If we finish this project today, we'll have an easy day tomorrow." This is a conditional sentence. Cool, right? Here we look at conditions and results, which is very useful in explaining complicated things and discussing different work-related situations. It's going to be interesting!
Sometimes we speak about unreal conditions in present. Like in this sentence. "If I knew how to use this program, I wouldn't waste time learning it now." When and how do we use this grammar and how to impress your colleagues with your English?;-) It's in this lecture.
Do you feel like you are overusing must in your speech? Well, from now on you on won’t:) In this lesson we’ll look at 3 words that will help us talk about necessity, possibility, requirement, etc.
In this final grammar lesson we look at passive voice. You will understand the difference between active and passive sentences and how to use them in speech. Knowing this grammar topic will help you read and understand documentation and other formal instructions, guidelines and descriptions, which are very common in programming.
