English Grammar - Past Continuous - Teaching Ideas 2 - TEFL

 

http://www.teflonline.net For this TEFL teaching idea we ask the students to look at a scene in a hospital where there are several people doing different things. Students are given time to memorise the picture before it is turned over. The students would then be asked to say what the people were doing in the picture. For example: A nurse was giving a patient an injection. A man was pouring a glass of water. As the trainer notes in the video, this activity can be adapted to make it into a competition by having students in teams compete to remember as many actions as they can. Grammar points such as this are often seen as fairly boring to most English language students, especially those who do not choose to study English. So being able to come up with ideas that encourage students to practice the grammar in interesting ways is an important part of being an English teacher. Taking an online TEFL course with ITTT will give you an understanding of the grammar points that you need to teach when starting out as a new teacher of English and will also give you some great ideas on how to teach them.

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.

Unit's discussion was centered in understanding the importance of learning aids when delivering instruction following the ESA method. A thorough discussion explained the advantages and disadvantages when using boards, interactive white boards, overhead proyectors, visual, aides, worksheets, work cards, cassette recorders, CD players, dvds, vídeos and vídeo cameras.Unit 16 has taught about the different conditionals such as zero, one to 3rd and mixed conditionals. The unit has gone in depth about each of these conditionals talking about the forms of them and how they are to be used. The lesson has also gone over direct and reported speech explaining the rules and how the form changes when going from direct to reported or visa versa.
