know better (than to do something) | English Tutor Materials and Resources | Scoop.it
мати досить розуму (тями), щоб не …; бути не настільки нерозумним, щоб …
gorob4ik's insight:
know better (than that/than to do something)

= used for saying that someone should not make a mistake, because they are sensible or experienced; to be wise enough, experienced enough, or well trained enough not to have done something wrong.
= мати досить розуму (тями), щоб не …; бути не настільки нерозумним, щоб …

Він не такий дурний, щоб судити людей по зовнішності. Вона достатньо розумна, щоб не намагатися обдурити його. Звичайно, йому лише шість років, але він досить тямущий, щоб не тікати від нас. Я здивована твоєю поганою поведінкою - ти повинен був мати досить розуму, щоб так себе не вести.Мері мала б знати, що не можна приймати подарунка від незнайомця.Діти повинні мати достатньо тями, щоб не гратися на дорозі.

Here is a great presentation filled to the brim with simple ideas for using iPads - from Tellagami (recorded animation) to TodaysMeet (backchannel) to Fotobabble (recording voice over a picture). Some of these are ones we have used at school before, others open up new channels we are yet to explore!

look the other way

look the other way | English Tutor Materials and Resources | Scoop.it
look the other way = ігнорувати, вдавати, що проблеми не існує, "відморозитися"
gorob4ik's insight:
look the other way

= deliberately ignore something bad that is happening
= ігнорувати, вдавати, що проблеми не існує, "відморозитися" // игнорировать, делать вид, что проблемы не существует, "отморозиться"

Ти не можеш вдавати, що нічого не відбувається, якщо знаєш, що він краде.Тюремні службовці знають, що відбувається, але вдають, що проблеми не існує.

Readlang - сервіс для читання текстів англійською та вивчення нових слів

Readlang - сервіс для читання текстів англійською та вивчення нових слів | English Tutor Materials and Resources | Scoop.it
Readlang - це інтернет-сервіс, який допомагає вам читати статті та книги іноземною мовою, перекладати незнайомі слова та запамʼятовувати їх.
gorob4ik's insight:
Коли мої учні та читачі питають, яку б я порадила їм програму для вивчення англійської мови, я в першу чергу рекомендую їм Readlang. Неможливо переоцінити роль читання автентичних текстів при вивченні мови, це той суттєвий вхідний матеріал, на основі якого ви потім можете говорити без помилок, використовувати правильні слова і доречно вживати граматичні конструкції.Readlang - це не програма, а інтернет-сервіс, який допомагає вам читати статті та книги іноземною мовою, перекладати незнайомі слова та запамʼятовувати їх.

Online Writing with Clarity Infographic - Business 2 Community | English Tutor Materials and Resources | Scoop.it

Online writing may include blogging, marketing copy, website or newsletter content and they all share the need for clarity.  One of the first things we learn about writing online is we have seconds to capture a reader and their attention span is short. Clear, concise writing wasn’t invented online, however, it has always been taught to writers as a best practice.  Long before the Internet, George Orwell said, “If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out."....
