【Self Study English ♡ Unit 2】 want to learn useful vocabulary “have” from the basics?


This blog can be used in class or as a self-study text book. It is intended to take learners from a very basic level of vocabulary to a level where they can use around 2,000 words and phrases.

The vocabulary has been chosen for its usefulness in everyday situations. And I focus not just on single words, but on useful phrases and collocations.


For example, difficult teaching points such as the difference between do and make, are dealt with through collocation (we do our homework, but we make mistakes).

This blog is organized around everyday topics, but also has units devoted to core verbs such as get and bring/take, as well as units concerned with ways of learning vocabulary.


When the learners have worked through a group of units, it is a good idea to repeat some of the work and to extend on the meaning  and use of key words and phrases by extra discussion with someone.

And find other examples of the key items in other texts and situations. This can be done at intervals of one to three months after first working on a unit. This is important!




Let’s get started!
