Useful Language

If you wish to succeed in the study of English, you should stop translating literally from Spanish into English and start thinking in terms of language functions. Below you can find useful language used both in oral and/or written texts, sorted out by language function and including a link to the corresponding audios on the TP Podcast. Listen-n-Repeat, learn the music of the sentences (learn by ear) and practice pronunciation -- those are very helpful in various ways.
