November 12, 2017

People’s views on Marriage differ quite extensively:  from decade to decade, and from one culture to the next.  This lesson takes a look at some of these views and ideas on marriage, expectations, and how Men and Women Relate To each other.

Who Are You?

July 28, 2017

Speaking in any language is first & fore-most about communication.  The first thing that a person (usually) needs to do is communicate about “Who” He or She “Is”.  This is more than just telling one’s name and profession.  This lesson is about communicating “Who You REALLY Are” — in both One’s private & professional life…

Why GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! Is Better For You

Because I Am Not Trying To "Re-Invent The Wheel"

(First of all, "Better" is an opinion. It is only "Better" if it works for You.)

  • "Learning Paths" Do Not Serve The Learner

    Many of the on-line language schools focus a great deal on "Learning Paths". While these may be good for The Average Learner and The Administrators who insist-on them, they often do not serve The Exceptional Learner, who is already beyond needing such things. What They... (You)... need is Practice in Intelligent Usage of The Language. That is what I offer You...

  • Learning English Should Be "Natural"

    Humans Beings do-not learn Their Own Language by memorizing Vocabulary, and Learning Grammatical Rules. We learn The Language by USING IT. Here, We follow The Natural Method... Grammatical "Rules" are there to help explain WHY we speak & write in a certain way.

  • No Lessons Created By "Robots"

    If you have ever bought an English text-book or taken an on-line course (else-where), then You may have noticed that the English used in those lessons is not exactly "Authentic". Though the lessons are probably Grammatically Correct - much of The Language used in them is often NOT how REAL Humans actually communicate. On GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!, I write ALL of The Lessons, Blog-Posts, & Pages... And that's why I know that they are ALL: "Real" & "Authentic".

  • My Philosophy: "Good Enough" is NEVER Good Enough

    To say that something is, "Good Enough" - is to imply that: It is not as-good-as it could be - but It is "Acceptable". This same "Acceptance" is also (unfortunately) quite prevalent in the Traditional English-Teaching world, in the form of the acceptance of Poor Grammar & the Incorrect Usage of Words & Phrases - simply because... "Well, that's how everyone says it". Though this may be "acceptable" for the "Average" Learner, this will NEVER be "Good Enough" for GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!

  • Learning Un-Intelligent English Makes One Sound Un-Intelligent

    The Age Of: Political Correctness; Participation Trophies; and "Everyone Is Special" - has given us A World of people Who are afraid to say what they actually think - and has produced Teachers who think that anything "Challenging" might cause The Learner to become discouraged. Because of this, nearly all English lessons (elsewhere) are written at a level-of-intelligence that is far-below that of The One Who is trying to learn. Furthermore - those lessons are filled with language which is NOT that of A Leader... It is NOT Exceptional English... With GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! - we Learn The Language of The Leader... not The Follower.

  • The Assumption That One Is Automatically Challenged

    There is a terrible myth that learning English is: "Very Difficult", "Challenging", "Tricky", etc... (As if those were "Bad" things.) This is why many of the traditional text-books & lessons are written at such a low level. But what is worse, is that many Teachers actually speak to grown-adults as if They were children... (and in many cases, Those Learners are actually more-intelligent than Their Teacher.)... The only assumption that I shall EVER make of You... is that You are an Intelligent Individual Who Is "Ready For The Challenge".......... (Otherwise... why would You even be here?)

Are You Ready?

What Makes Us Way More Awesome Than "The Other Guys"?

A Philosphy That Works / Tools That Work / A Website That Works

  • Natural Communication

    The purpose of learning a language is to be able to communicate.  Therefore, One's lesson should be structured to do just that...  To Communicate - (not to simply go through exercises and answer lists of questions).  Here, with GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!, We actually learn To Communicate...  Just like in The Real World ;)

  • Media Worth Watching

    Lessons on "Get Yer Ass To Class" shall only contain Media Files (Video, Images, Slides, etc.) that are Relevant & Helpful to You - The Learner.  I shall never add any media to a lesson, unless I can personally guarantee that it is up to the standards of GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!.........  (And those are some pretty High Standards) ;)

  • Intriguing Lesson Content

    So why did I go through the trouble of creating this site!?!?  Because I got sick of teaching boring lessons with un-intelligent language about un-intriguing topics (when I was working at other language schools, of course).  So do You want to be able to have an Intelligent conversation in English?  Or do you want to sound like a textbook?............  The choice is Yours.

  • Available On Mobile Devices

    It has said that Mobile Computing is "The Future", and many people want to be able to access Their favorite websites through Their phones & tablets.  You can be assured that all of  Your lessons, here on "Get Yer Ass To Class", will always look clean - and you will always be able to read them on whatever mobile device that you want to access them with.

  • A Website That Actually Works!!!

    "If It Ain't Broke, Then Don't Fix It!" - Unfortunately, many companies that I have worked for seem to be addicted to constantly changing their systems, in an attempt to make things really "fancy".  Instead - this usually means that much of the time that should be spent learning English is, then, spent dealing with problems caused by Administrators' bad decisions...  That is NOT going to happen here...  I promise.

  • Communication Methods That Actually Work!!!

    Basically...  Microsoft ruined Skype...  Perhaps that was their plan all along - to take control of the competition.  However, there are more than a few alternatives to Skype that We can use for our communication methods.  I prefer Open-Source Alternatives, but I will also do my best, at-all-times, to accommodate whatever method of communication that you prefer.

  • Built And Run On WordPress

    I have been using WordPress since 2007.  It works wonderfully; it is Open-Source; and if there is ever a problem with this site - or any of the GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! websites - I will be The One who fixes it...  Not some frustrated IT worker Who does not care about You, and has absolutely no Customer Service Skills.  I built GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! (using WordPress), and I say...  And I say, "WordPress Rocks!!!"

  • Use PayPal For All Purchases

    Although PayPal is not Open-Source, and I don't really know too much about the ethics of the company or the Individuals Who run it - PayPal has become the most-trusted & secure way to pay for things on-line.  Paypal and Credit Card info goes directly to PayPal.  No payment or Credit Card information is EVER Retrieved or Stored on GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!
