English Grammar - Future Perfect - Teaching Ideas - Teach English as a Foreign Language


This video from one of ITTT's teach English as a foreign language courses covers three teaching ideas for the future perfect tense. The future perfect is used to talk about things that will have been completed by a certain date in the future. The first idea involves asking students the following question "What will you have done by ...?" with an appropriate time in the future. For example: "What will you have done by the time you are 25?" "I will have become an English teacher". The second idea involves giving students monthly calendars to complete and asking them to say what they will have done by the end of the month. The last idea involves asking questions about a famous person and what they will have achieved in the future. "How many awards will she have won by 2025?" "How many films will he have starred in by the time he is 50?" For more ideas on how to teach grammar points to English language learners and to get qualified to teach English as a foreign language consider taking one of ITTT's courses.

From this unit, i have learnt how we begin to understand the function of words and how words are joined together to make a meaningful communication. Parts of speech also shows us how words relate to each other. I have also learnt each of the parts of speech and how they are different from each other. They help to recognize which part of speech each word in a sentence is.The two videos were great in demonstrating how small actions such as your overall demeanor and how you approach the class can have a larger affect on the atmosphere. The teacher sets the tone for the class and will largely determine how the students will respond to learning. The second lesson demonstrated the importance of giving examples as the best means of explanation.
