English Grammar - Other Future Forms - TEFL

 

http://www.teflcourse.net In a previous grammar video we looked at the future simple, future continuous, future perfect and future perfect continuous. In this video we look at three other forms used for talking about the future. These are the 'going to' future, the present continuous and the present simple. The 'going to' future: Subject + verb to be "am/is/are" + going to + base verb. It is used for intentions/things decided upon before speaking as in: "I'm going to teach English in Korea next year". The 'going to' future is also used when making predictions with evidence. The present continuous: Subject + verb to be "am/is/are" + present participle. This is used to talk about future arrangements that we might have such as: "I'm starting a TEFL course next month", this is saying that the course is paid for and the start date has been set. The present simple: Subject + base verb. This is used to talk about scheduled or timetabled events in the future such as: "The first class starts at 11am". The future tenses are just one part of the grammar covered in our TEFL course.

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.

I learn the difference and level of teachers and learners,and the quality of a good teacher and good learner that should be. Somehow teachers know how to fit and interact his/herself to the learners in a way that there must be an improvement and development to the student individually in the class. this way you can evaluate yourself if your doing an effective teaching.This unit covered writing lesson plans. I liked the section with the sample worksheets to use in class. It was also helpful to see a formalized lesson plan sheet and have it explained how to fill it in correctly. I also learned the reasons why we lesson plan and how it is a valuable tool as a teacher to not only help students improve, but help us as a teacher improve too.
