Lesson 2: SHORT VOWELS

Short Vowel Sounds

In English we have long Vowels that we just saw and short vowels that we are going to see now.

Long Vowels

A — ei

E — i

I — ai

O — ou

U — iu

Look at the comparison with the short vowels anda n exemple of a word.

Short A [æ]

CAT — kæt (This æ is between A and E, but more for E, so if you just say E in most cases you will be fine)

Short E [E]

BED — bed

Short I [I]

SIT — sit

Short O [A]

TOP — tap

Short U [A]

SUN — san

Short Vowels

U — a

LETTER A — æ/é

The short vowel has the sound /æ/, whenever the vowel is followed and/or ends in consonant (b, c, d, f, g, k, t, etc) except “r”, “l”, “w” e “y”.

IMPORTANT: When a vowel is in the begining of the word without E at the end, it usually has the short sound. Like AT æt. If it was ATE eit it would be a long vowel sound.

Because this Æ is strange, we will use É. é

Conclusion

We can conclude after observing this immensity of words that it is not a complete list, that English and other romanic languages are much more alike than different. Given a word in English, it is many times easy to deduce the meaning since most English words resemble words that exist in languages such as Spanish, Italian, Portugues, French and others. This is exactly why the basis of learning English must be orality.

Breakfast

Cooking breakfast can be fun if you enjoy it, and making food for someone else is even better. I usually cook eggs and bacon. First, I warm up the stove and then beat the eggs in a bowl. I prefer scrambled eggs, but I can make just about any type. I warm up the burner on the stove, and I

pour the eggs in a frying pan. I use a spatula to mix and turn over the eggs. Once the eggs are done, I remove them from the pan and serve them to the family. If the eggs aren’t salty enough, the kids can add more salt or pepper.

Cellphones

More and more people these days have cellphones as a means of communicating with family and friends. It just helps you stay in touch, so if I want to talk to a friend, I just call her up no matter where I am. Also, I can take and send pictures with my cellphone, so I really don’t need an extra camera. Of course, if my friend doesn’t have her cellphone turned on, then I can just leave a message and ask her to call me back. A cellphone can also come in handy in case of an emergency and you need to call someone for help, for example, if your car breaks down, and you need assistance. To be honest, I don’t think I could live without my cellphone.

Cellphones

More and more people these days have cellphones as a means of communicating with family and friends. It just helps you stay in touch, so if I want to talk to a friend, I just call her up no matter where I am. Also, I can take and send pictures with my cellphone, so I really don’t need an extra camera. Of course, if my friend doesn’t have her cellphone turned on, then I can just leave a message and ask her to call me back. A cellphone can also come in handy in case of an emergency and you need to call someone for help, for example, if your car breaks down, and you need assistance. To be honest, I don’t think I could live without my cellphone.

Dental Care

After every meal, I am in the practice of brushing my teeth. I use a toothpaste recommended by my dentist, and I make sure to floss to remove any food between my teeth. I am also using a special kit for tooth whitening, something that is becoming more popular now. I visit my dentist every six months for a dental cleaning and checkup, and fortunately, my health insurance covers the cost. For most people, if you take care of your teeth, you won’t get any cavities.

Driver Education

On Saturdays, I am going to driving school because I want to get my license as soon as possible. During the class, we learn about the rules of the road, watch videos on traffic safety and defensive driving, and learn how to drive in different weather conditions. We also go out on the roads with the instructor and practice our driving skills. I am a little nervous because I do not want to get in an accident, and I do not want to get a ticket for not following the rules. I have to take the driving test next week, and I hope I can pass the first time.

Exercise

I often exercise in the morning before going to school, and my routine often changes from day to day. I usually go to a health club and swim twice a week. On the other days, I sometimes lift weights or go jogging. On the weekends, I often go hiking in the mountains near my home with my dog. I think that getting some exercise helps me stay fit, and it helps me burn off stress from the week. It’s also a good way to lose weight and stay trim.

Exercise

I often exercise in the morning before going to school, and my routine often changes from day to day. I usually go to a health club and swim twice a week. On the other days, I sometimes lift weights or go jogging. On the weekends, I often go hiking in the mountains near my home with my dog. I think that getting some exercise helps me stay fit, and it helps me burn off stress from the week. It’s also a good way to lose weight and stay trim.

Family Relationships

There are five people in my family, and my parents still have a cat and dog. I have two older brothers, and the oldest works as a graphic designer for a computer company. My other brother is a manager of a bank in our hometown. My dad is retired, but he keeps himself busy hiking, taking care of his grandchildren, and volunteering in the community. My mom still runs a flower shop. My grandmother lives around the corner from our house; my grandfather passed away about a year ago, but grandma keeps busy in her garden. I guess you could say that we’re a pretty close family. We like doing things together, mainly because we have so many things in common.

Clothing and Fashion

Being in style with the latest fashions is important for some people, but not for me. After I wake up and drag myself out of bed, I change into my clothes for the day. I usually wear a pair of jeans and a tshirt to school. If it’s a little cool outside, I might throw on a sweat shirt or sweater. Then, I put on my shoes, and I’m out the door. Young people my age tend to follow the latest fashions because they want to fit in. My mom is just glad if I don’t wear the same shirt three days in a row. What can you expect from a teenager?

Job Hunting

Before I graduate, I need to start looking for a fulltime job to secure my future. Presently, I am working parttime in the evenings as a sales clerk for a small clothing company, but the pay is low, and there is no future in the job. Actually, I hope to find a job as a graphic designer for a computer company in this area. Of course, a good salary is important, but I want to work for a company that provides good health and retirement benefits, with opportunities to develop professionally. I am writing my resume now, and I will probably try looking online to find job openings. Job interviews also make me a little nervous, but if I prepare well, I should be able to get a job.

Job Hunting

Before I graduate, I need to start looking for a fulltime job to secure my future. Presently, I am working parttime in the evenings as a sales clerk for a small clothing company, but the pay is low, and there is no future in the job. Actually, I hope to find a job as a graphic designer for a computer company in this area. Of course, a good salary is important, but I want to work for a company that provides good health and retirement benefits, with opportunities to develop professionally. I am writing my resume now, and I will probably try looking online to find job openings. Job interviews also make me a little nervous, but if I prepare well, I should be able to get a job.

Cooking Lunch

I enjoy cooking lunch when I have the time because it is much cheaper than eating at a restaurant. I usually fix something quick and easy like a sandwich or a bowl of soup, but somtimes I might take the time to prepare some pasta or fish. In fact, if I really want to have a nice meal, I can throw together a healthy salad with some pieces of chicken, tomatoes, and spinach. If my friends are free for lunch, I often invite them over to share the meal together.

Movie Rental

After a long day at school and work, I often rent a movie as a way of relaxing in the evening. I usually drop by a local video rental store on my way home, and a movie only costs a few dollars. I also belong to an online video rental Website, so I can rent movies from the comfort of my home.

I sometimes invite friends over to watch the movies together. We sometimes make popcorn or order a pizza to eat with the movie. I like most types of movies including comedies and action films, but I can’t stand horror movies. If I rent movies, I just have to remember to return them on time; otherwise, I have to pay late fees.

Distance Education and Online Degree

Many people want to improve their education and job skills, and taking online classes through distance education is one way to do this. I enrolled in an online program in computer science, and I can take my general education requirements online and get those out of the way before I take my main classes for my major. I really enjoy studying this way because I can meet many different people online from around the world. I go online, do assignments, post messages to the classroom bulletin board, and chat with fellow students two or three times a week. The tuition is reasonable, and I can finish my program in about a year.

Distance Education and Online Degree

Many people want to improve their education and job skills, and taking online classes through distance education is one way to do this. I enrolled in an online program in computer science, and I can take my general education requirements online and get those out of the way before I take my main classes for my major. I really enjoy studying this way because I can meet many different people online from around the world. I go online, do assignments, post messages to the classroom bulletin board, and chat with fellow students two or three times a week. The tuition is reasonable, and I can finish my program in about a year.

Online Shopping

Online shopping is really becoming popular around the world, and I have a friend that does all of her buying online. She says she can find whatever she needs from online stores and communities like Walmart, eBay, and Amazon. In many cases, traditional stores have a limited selection of products on display whereas an online store often has a wider selection of goods from which to choose. My friend also says she can also look up product reviews and compare prices much easier from her house than travel from store to store. Equally important, she can shop when it is convenient for her since online stores never close. This saves her time, and she doesn’t have to deal with long lines.

Apartment Rentals

I have decided to move out of my parents’ place to live on my own, and now I am looking for an apartment. However, it is a lot more difficult and expensive than I thought. First of all, a one bedroom apartment is going for about $500, and that is a little over my budget. Second, you have to pay a deposit, often equal to your first month’s rent. Next, most apartments are not furnished, so I have to come up with furniture and a washer and dryer. Finally, the utilities, including gas, electricity, and water are not included either, so that adds to the overall expenses of having your own place. I really think I need to get a roommate, or I will have to move back in with my parents.

Apartment Rentals

I have decided to move out of my parents’ place to live on my own, and now I am looking for an apartment. However, it is a lot more difficult and expensive than I thought. First of all, a one bedroom apartment is going for about $500, and that is a little over my budget. Second, you have to pay a deposit, often equal to your first month’s rent. Next, most apartments are not furnished, so I have to come up with furniture and a washer and dryer. Finally, the utilities, including gas, electricity, and water are not included either, so that adds to the overall expenses of having your own place. I really think I need to get a roommate, or I will have to move back in with my parents.

Restaurants

I sometimes go out to eat at a restaurant if I don’t have time to cook or I just want to relax. My favorite place is a Mexican restaurant downtown, and the decor and atmosphere are very authentic. You usually don’t have to make a reservation unless you are planning to go during a busy time. The prices are very reasonable, and the service is great. Best of all, the portions are large, and the food is superb. I always make sure to leave a generous tip.

Study Abroad

Before I finish school, I would like to go study abroad to learn another language and experience another culture. I’m really interested in studying Japanese, so I might apply for a program in Japan. Of course, I need to earn enough money to pay for tuition and living expenses, but I think that I first need to pick up a little of the language and learn something about the country so I can adjust quickly to the culture. Such an experience should help me develop an understanding of othersthe way they live, think, and believeand this knowledge should help me in my future career.

Lesson 15: Bonus Text

Read the below texto. If you can do it perfectly, that means you are a good student and you followed my teachings in this book.

Train Tickets

After I leave the house, I walk to the station to catch the train. This is the easiest way to commute to work. At the station, I buy a ticket from the ticket machine and then wait on the platform for the train to come.

The train is scheduled to arrive at the station at a quarter to seven, and it is usually on time, but the train is sometimes delayed due to bad weather or accidents.

When the train pulls into the station, people often crowd around the doors with the hope of rushing into the train to get a good seat. Fortunately, most people are courteous and give up their seats to the elderly and the physically disabled. When my train arrives at my destination, I get off the train and exit the station. From there, I just have to walk a few blocks to work. The entire trip takes about an hour.

Lição 16: Final Text

Look at this other text from my book Excellence in Life.

Do Better

Do better. No matter what you’re doing or what you are working on right now, if there is room for it, do better or try harder. To live is to do something with life, it is to build, it is to prepare the way for tomorrow and if you want to guarantee tomorrow, do better.

Don’t make the mistake of one day, when it is not possible to turn back, say to yourself: I could have done better.

Look at your past, did you always do your best? Did you fight as hard as others for what you want? Do you have the feeling that you’ve been too relaxed? Do you think that with a little more effort you could have won some opportunities you lost in your life?

It doesn’t matter. What is done in the past is in the past. At this very moment think of one thing: to do better. From now on you won’t do anything else. Start to give one hundred percent of yourself. There is no beauty or gain on regret for the things we haven’t done or for the things that aren’t perfect.

No time to study and learn new skills because you think nothing will ever change… Do better, stop lying to yourself; you can change your life, millions of people changed their lives. Some people who are the same age as you, who are at the same situation as you, will change their life for the better on the future and when that happens know that the only thing that will pass through your head, is that you could have done better.

Doing means building. Who does better today builds a secure, stable, happy and durable tomorrow.

And whenever you’re in the middle of something and start to criticize yourself for not doing things perfectly, or when you feel that your performance in something is being mediocre, don’t be sad, just do better.

The best time to do better is right now.
