In this episode, we cover the pronunciation of the word deter. This word is used as a verb and means to discourage someone from doing something, usually using doubt or fear. Synonyms for deter include prevent, stop and avert. The word comes from Latin 'deterrere', a word formed with de- ‘away from’ and terrere ‘frighten'.
Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.
Again I find myself somewhat confounded by the difficult nature of tenses and their arbitrary classifications. I do understand that if I cannot come to grips with the underlying mechanics of the issue, I will be a less effective teacher and that would serve no-one in the end. I will review tenses repeatedly before I meet my first ESL students.The content of this unit is about the definitions, main types, usage and positions of nouns, adjectives, articles, verbs, adverbs, gerunds, pronouns, and prepositions/ conjunctions in a sentence.
From this unit, I have learnt to improve my grammar by being able to identify the function of each word in a sentence and to form a correct sentence.
