Sam hasn't done his homework again. Can he avoid getting in trouble?

Discussion

Do you hand in your homework on time? Have you ever made up an excuse about it? Did the teacher fall for it?

Hi marila2013. Let me try to help. Try these:

http://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/activities/phonemic-chart - on this website you can see the phonemic symbols and listen to them being pronounced. You can also download this chart to use on your computer, but you need to have Adobe Flash Player to use it.

http://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/en/apps/sounds-right - if you have an iPad, you can download the chart free here.

Good luck with your exam and let us know how it goes! :)

I always do my homework on time, I do't like irresponsible students who never do their homework and want to copy it from others, which's the case in my class. None of my friends does homework, even the good students, because they don't find it important. On the contrary, I think that doing homework helps us to become diligent and to be responsible, and I think it's very important to do homework and to respect our professors. I must also admit that my professors're not so strict about doing homework; if you do it, it's great, but they usually don't notice that, and if you don't do it, it'll happen nothing, nono'll notice.

It's a creative and not useless tool for check OUT our english level. I thought that the guys in the video speak as a traditional britanic; I mean in words with "r". Something can explain to me, why?.

Hi Conscre! Thanks for the message. You're right, everyone in the video is British. The speakers in the video have different accents from each other because they come from different parts of the UK. There are many different accents in the UK. Which words with "r" did you notice?

Getting trouble or not it's depend on his teacher who gives him a homework. If the teacher let him to collect his homework in another time, that means he can do his homework and collect it in another time, but I think the score that he get will not same with another student who collect the homework on time.
But, that's better than if the teacher won't give him a chance to collect his homework in another time, because he will not get any score.

So, do not forget to do homework anymore if we won't get any trouble.
Doing homework can exercise our responsibilities for something ^_^

Most of the time I hand in my homework on time but sometimes I forget something and I always say to my teacher the truth. She tells me not to repeat it again.
