IRAQI - many modern artists from here do not adhere to the strict Islamic rule of not re-creating the image of any people. Only God can create, therefore if you are trying to create a statue or image of a person you are trying to becom god-like or you are making idols. Much of earlier art was plant (sometime animal) based or it was created using cerylic script.

Common Questions

t

 

  1. Question: Is listening important or speaking important?
    Both are equally important.
    You need to learn to be a good
    listener to be a good speaker.


  2. Question: How will we be evaluated?
    Through participation and testing assessment.


  3. How can we prepare for the Mid-term & Final exams?
    There are many things.
    Most important is: Practice, practice SPEAKING!
    The other things I will tell you in class.


  4. How was the first class?
    Everyone in the class needs to speak more – In English!


  5. What kinds/types of tests?
    There will be many different kinds of testing.
    You will not always know when you are being tested.
    There are also surprise quizzes.



  6. Question: What is the (best) way to increase English speaking ability?  
    You need to practice, try, practice & try again.


  7. How much homework will you give us?
    A lot of little things.
    However, it will be always different.
    Sometimes it is writing, sometimes it is listening and sometimes it is conversation practice
    .


  8. I want know difference between "hi" and "hello". 
    They are the same, but “hi” is sometimes
    more casual than “hello”.

 

 

t

Common Errors

t

 

  1. Don’t call me “Teacher”. 
    Usually only little children say “Teacher”.
    USE a person's name when you talk to them, or "sir" or "miss" or "ma'am" if you do not know their names.


  2. Remember to use Capital Letters at the beginning
    of sentences & for proper names.


  3. Use the right punctuation at the end and
    in the middle of sentences.


  4. DON’T start written sentences with a conjunction. (and, but, so, or, because…etc.)

  5. The symbol '#' is not a 'sharp' except in music terms.
    Many of my students mistake the '#' for a sharp, but that is only in music.
    In English the '#' symbol means 'number'.
