I imagine that the periodic table is something that most of us are familiar with from our school days. Even if we have no background in chemistry, most of us can name at least a handful of the elements. Hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and the most common of the elements are familiar to most. Many of the more recently discovered or recently synthesised elements have strange names that are not very memorable.
I thought it would be fun to make this Little Bit of Britlish if only to refresh my own memory of the names of the elements. For those students out there who have an interest in the periodic table and the chemical elements, this Little Bit of Britlish will ensure that you can correctly pronounce them all with a British accent. Some of the elements are pronounced differently in American English.
This Little Bit of Britlish also looks at superlatives and comparatives in English. Most of the information about the elements contains comparative or superlative forms to give you plenty of examples of how to use them. There are also exercises at the back of the eBook to give you some practice using comparative and superlatives in English.
This eBook contains 46 pages, more than 6000 words, and over 123 embedded audio files. It also has an interactive periodic table on each page so that you can quickly navigate to the element of interest.
