The Future Tenses - Other Future Forms - Present Continuous - Teaching Idea

 

This teaching idea is very similar to the activity we can use for the future continuous. We pair up our students, give them diaries and have them find the day on which both of them are free to meet. This video shows you exactly how to execute this activity in the classroom.


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.

The unit has shown me how difficult it can be for non-native speakers when it comes to the pronunciation of English words. It has taught me to be extra careful when explaining the different sounds and has also demonstrated why I should be extra patient and spend more time on pronunciation and phonology lessons when I am teaching the language.This unit was refreshingly simple to understand. It explained clearly what I knew instinctively as a native speaker but may have been able to readily articulate. I loved how it showed the parallels that exist between the past tense and the present tense. Whilst reading the unit I was able to think of ways to improve past lesson I have taught.
