La mejor forma de aprender inglés es ”hablando inglés”, así que el objetivo principal de nuestro programa es el desarrollo de las habilidades orales del alumno. Para alcanzar dicha meta, el alumno se encontrará con las siguientes barreras: pronunciación, entonación, fluidez, escasez de vocabulario y falta de confianza para comunicarse sin temor a ser ridiculizado. Los siete pasos de nuestro procedimiento, como ya hemos explicado, se encargarán de derribar tales obstáculos, y en las asesorías académicas usted mismo lo irá comprobando. Sin embargo, debido a las dinámicas desplegadas dentro de las asesorías, ha sido necesario implementar ciertas vías, por medio de las cuales el alumno refuerce sus habilidades conversacionales, sobre todo los concernientes al incremento de confianza y de vocabulario especializado en diferentes áreas, ya que los grupos serán más grandes (y por lo mismo la interacción con otros alumnos, más desafiante), y los temas tratados serán más específicos. Así como es muy importante tomar en cuenta que la participación a estas actividades brindan un alto porcentaje de aprendizaje por la utilidad de la información que se que se maneja y el vocabulario clasificado que se adquiere al asistir a la mayor cantidad posible. Usted cuenta con la posibilidad de participar en cualquiera de las actividades especiales, avanzadas y de entretenimiento, valiéndose de dos diferentes

formas de reservarlas: la primera es acudiendo a nuestros calendarios mensuales que encontrará usted en la recepción de cada una de las filiales de Camlex Corporation, y la segunda, como consecuencia de las indicaciones del asesor, en caso de que así lo juzgara necesario. A continuación, la lista de actividades en sus tres categorías: Formación Fonética Pronunciación Entonación Dialogo Lectura Escritura Avanzadas Mesa Redonda Panel Foro Debate Conversación por Nivel Conferencia Vocabulario Seminario Entretenimiento Talleres Club de Video Club Canciones Visitas Guiadas Excursiones Le invito a participar en estas actividades preparadas para usted.

Verbos Frasales Some particles can be separated from the verb so that a noun and pronoun can be inserted, and some particles can't be separated from the verb. In addition, some phrases are intransitive, meaning they cannot take a direct object.

Eat out

(no object): have a meal in a restaurant. "I'm too tired to cook tonight. Why don't we eat out?"

Egg on

(separable): urge / encourage greatly toward doing something (usually something negative). "At first Bob and Chuck were just having a mild argument, but Bob's friends egged them on until they started fighting."

Fall through

(no object): not happen. (Note: describes something that was planned but didn't happen.) "We had originally intended to go to Mexico for our vacation, but our trip fell through when I got sick."


Verbos Preposicionales There are many verbs after which a particular preposition is used. The prepositional phrase is followed by an object (mostly a noun or a clause). If the object is a verb, the verb must be in the gerund form ('-ing' form). There are prepositional verbs with only one object and prepositional verbs which can have one or two objects. 1. Prepositional verbs / Verb + preposition  Form: Verb + preposition (+ object) The verb has one object and cannot be used with two objects. The preposition comes before the object.

Have you applied for the job?

In questions the preposition sometimes comes at the end of the sentence.

What do you blame the insurance company of?

 Use Sometimes the meaning of prepositional verbs can be explained from the meaning of the separate parts (e.g. run away). In other cases the combination of the verb and preposition gets a new meaning which cannot be explained from the separate parts (e.g. to look after).
