errores de pronunciación, errores de comprensión by Zac (hablamejoringles.com)

http://www.hablamejoringles.com/errores-de-pronunciacion-errores-de-comprension/

"En todas las entregas que he escrito (Zac) para el blog, apenas he tocado el tema más importante de todos: ¡la comprensión auditiva!
Hasta un determinado nivel, es normal no entender el inglés hablado por los nativos a una velocidad natural. Sobre todo, no te preocupes si no puedes seguir algunas series y películas: eso requiere mucha experiencia y no debería ser el barómetro para la mayoría de los estudiantes de inglés.
Lo que sí es preocupante es cuando alguien no entiende frases básicas que sí podría construir él mismo y que entendería perfectamente por escrito. Si es tu caso, merece la pena analizar por qué te pasa e intentar resolver este problema poco a poco.
En muchos casos los problemas de comprensión van unidos a errores de pronunciación. Cuando tienes una idea equivocada de cómo se pronuncia una palabra, además de decirla mal cuando estás hablando, es posible que no la reconozcas cuando la oyes.

RELATIVES

http://www.edufind.com/english/grammar/rel2.cfm

Ideas que debemos tener claras respecto a las oraciones subordinadas de RELATIVO.

1.- Lo primero es aclarar la procedencia de la propia palabra RELATIVO: no tiene que ver con la teoría de la 'relatividad' sino con 'relación', palabra 'relacionada' con otra, como si dijera por ejemplo que rosáceo es un adjetivo relativo al color rosa.

2.- ¿De dónde proceden las oraciones subordinadas de relativo? Pues procede de dos oraciones simples que tienen una palabra en común, que hace referencia a lo mismo, que están 'relacionadas'.
Ejemplo: Ayer vi a un hombre - El hombre me dio una carta para ti.

Por tener la palabra 'hombre' en común, podemos poner ambas frases en 'relación', esa palabra (hombre) hace referencia a lo mismo. Las palabras que hacen referencia a lo mismo podrían también no ser iguales:
Ejemplo: Ayer vi a un hombre - Él me dio una carta para ti.

Así pues, ambas frases pasan a formar una oración: 'El hombre que vi ayer me dio una carta para ti.'
En esta oración resultante, la segunda palabra que hace referencia al hombre, se ha convertido en un  pronombre (=porque sustituye a una palabra) relativo (que está relacionada con otra de la misma oración).

Es por todo esto que en la mayoría de los ejercicios con relativos, nos propongan unir dos frases simples en una subordinada de relativo.

Idiocracy

Sinopsis2 [editar · editar código]

Joe Bauers (representado por Luke Wilson), un oficial del ejército de los Estados Unidos (seleccionado por sus superiores debido a que es "el hombre más ordinario en nuestras filas"), y una prostituta llamada Rita (representada por Maya Rudolph) son puestos en un experimento militar ultra-secreto para demostrar la viabilidad de hibernar soldados durante tiempos de paz. Sin embargo, antes de que transcurriera un año (tiempo en que debían ser descongelados), la base militar es clausurada y su jefe científico puesto en arresto debido a un escándalo por prostitución.
El experimento es olvidado por completo, la base militar es demolida y ambos protagonistas son descongelados de manera accidental unos 500 años después (el año 2505) en un mundo distópico en el que la selección natural ya no favorece los seres más inteligentes, debido a que se reproducen más aquellos de poca sabiduría. Esto ha resultado en una humanidad idiota, ignorante y retrasada, de modo que Joe se convierte en el hombre más inteligente del planeta.
