TESOL Videos - How to Pronounce 'THRASONICAL'- English Grammar
In this episode, we cover the pronunciation of the word thrasonical. This word is a synonym for boastful or bragging. It orginates from the fictional character Thraso, who is a soldier in the comedy Eunuchus, a play written by Terence over 2,000 years ago. Due to his bragging nature, Thraso was the inspiration for this word.
This is what one of our TEFL graduates feels he has gained from the course, or a part of it, and how he plans to put into action what he has learned.
