As the essence of learning the English language, 11Talk encourages its students to express themselves in various ways. With proper guidance and training from the most professional language tutors, they can excel and fluently influence every conversation. Each class serves as an avenue for students to apprehend lessons elemental to their progress.

Aside from that, students can also learn through the official blog site of 11Talk, with its variety of instructive scopes. This week, the followers of its social media accounts enjoyed FREE English lessons featuring the June events. If you’re not a follower yet, give it a go for updates.

However, this blog has more comprehensive content details, as it will feature sample sentences and conversations. This post will tackle lessons from four National events: Fitness Day, Ice Cream Day, Best Friends Day, and Upsy Daisy Day.

In line with National Fitness Day, 11Talk reminded the students who study English online to stay active and that striving for wellness is the best way to learn efficiently. For this June event, the Word of the Week is fit. It means that a person or a thing is in the correct or proper shape and size. It can also mean someone has the requisite qualities or skills to undertake something competently. In contrast, in UK slang, using fit is a way of saying that a person is attractive.

The synonyms of fit are the following: lean, sexy, slender, slim, sylphlike, and toned. You can also use capable, competent, deserving, equipped, preferable, and qualified.

Below are sample sentences and conversations:

“You must also be fit to trek Mt. Fuji.”
