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 convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

I found this unit pretty basic yet helpful. For when I become a teacher I need to understand and do most of these things. It just made me think of how I will act around my students, it made me excited for when I will teach English. Although again, as in the previous questions the answers and question itself was phrased in a rather confusing way. But I have a good feeling!This unit introduced me to the concept of receptive skills-- a category I previously had not considered. Receptive skills are listening and reading, tasks which each have their own difficulties when students must perform them. Often times, authentic texts, or texts that are not designed for English teaching, should not be used or be carefully considered before assignment.
