Professora de inglês recomenda esta série para praticar o idioma

Treinar a escuta no inglês é um desafio, mas pode ser mais prazeroso quando combinado com uma boa série

Quer aprender inglês vendo uma série nova? Para fazer o exercício, primeiro tente adivinhar com qual série vamos aprender hoje:

  • Duas famílias têm seus destinos entrelaçados, em uma história que envolve conflito de classes, racismo, pressão psicológica e várias percepções diferentes do que é maternidade e “família estruturada”.
  • O livro e a série têm o mesmo nome, embora as histórias sejam um pouco diferentes.
  • Os personagens são complexos e intrigantes, não estereotipados e mais próximos de como nós somos.

Está difícil? Pode piorar... vamos continuar as pistas em inglês!

  • It follows the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and an enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives.
  • The story explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the danger in believing that following the rules can avert disaster.
  • Starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington

E aí, conseguiu adivinhar?

Agora é hora de checar estas três palavrinhas mais difíceis, que apareceram nas pistas acima:

to intertwine: to twist or be twisted together, or to be connected so as to be difficult to separate (entrelaçar-se)
fate: a power that some people believe controls what will happen (destino)
to avert: to prevent something bad from happening (evitar)

Vamos fazer hoje uma atividade de Listening Comprehension!

Assista ao trailer oficial, sem legenda (legenda que está bem ruim, mesmo em inglês) e tente completar os espaços em branco:
