English Grammar - Future Simple - Teaching Ideas 2 - English Teaching Certification

 

An English teaching certification course will cover teaching methodologies, grammar and teaching ideas such as those covered here for the future simple. In the video the teaching ideas are horoscopes, fortune telling and wedding vows. For the horoscope activity students will be given zodiac signs and will create a horoscope for that sign before finding out who in the class the horoscope applies to. The fortune telling idea enables the students to role play using the future simple tense with one student being the fortune teller and the other the customer. Lastly, students create their ideal wedding vows or alternatively they can create silly vows.

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.

This unit covers the receptive skills of reading and listening. Reading and listening can be done for a purpose and for entertainment, and so teachers should be wary of the texts and topics that they choose for the classroom. Teachers should cover a variety of topics, choosing authentic and non-authentic texts according to the levels of their students and their abilities.The unit is about the productive skills: speaking and writing. The unit explains how important these two skills are and how to be dealt with the teacher in the class so as to reach the goal. I learnt that the productive skills are as important as the receptive ones to get the student to the advanced levels. However, i learnt that writing skill is the hardest to be taught.
