In contrast to "Say It Right" program, where the key attention is paid to phonetics, "Say IT right +" focuses on lexicology and phraseology of English. The program is intended for viewers with upper- intermediate level of English. However, it has clear structure, more entertaining form, as opposed to "Say It Right", and will be useful and easy-to-understand for viewers with lower levels of English.

During the program the host, "language nurse", explains:

  • The subtleties of usage of confusing words, such as homonyms and synonyms, which often mislead nonnative speakers;
  • The meaning of the idioms and phrasal verbs;
  • The etymology and meaning of the widespread fixed phraseological expressions in a relaxed manner as a part of so called "meditation".

After one video lesson the viewers will learn:

  • Two couples of English homonyms, synonyms or other confusing words;
  • Three idioms, their meanings and rules of usage;
  • One widespread fixed phraseological expression, its etymology and meaning.

Together with "Say IT right +" the viewers will reach the new heights of English learning, will practice their listening skills, enrich their vocabulary and broaden their horizons.
