English Grammar - Future Tenses - Other Future Forms - TEFL Certification


Here the teacher gives a brief overview of the uses of the 'going to' future tense. This tense is formed: Subject + verb to be "am/is/are" + going to + base verb. The two uses for the 'going to' future are: To talk about future plans/ intentions made before speaking. They are going to watch a film. Predictions based on evidence. (Looking at dark clouds overhead) It's going to rain. The future tenses represent just one part of the grammar covered by ITTT's TEFL certification courses. ITTT's courses can be taken fully online, in-class or a combination of the two. Visit us at the link above to find a TEFL course that suits you.

This unit explained clearly the four types of present tense and how and when to use them. It gave ideas of how explain these types to the students in ways that make them don't feel confused about them. It also provided very good list about the irregular verbs. The unit gave a lot of examples about teaching ideas and their usages to avoid confusion between the types of present tense.The unit discusses basic pedagogy and student centered learning. It gave good examples of positive teacher practices. These are practices I attempt to employ as a history teacher, and I am sure they are just as important to language learning. I also learned about about how language levels are broken down. I think they are good definitions for the various levels of language learning.
