English Grammar -- Present Simple -- Usage -- Online TESOL Course


This video outlines two usages of the Present Simple tense. There are several usages but the video focuses on the two main ones. The first usage is to talk about habits and routines. For example, I teach every Monday. She walks to school every day. It rains almost every day in the wet season. His mother does yoga twice a week. The second main usage of the Present Simple is to talk about general facts and truths. For example, The sun rises in the east. The earth is round. She works at the local mall. Coming to terms with the tense system can often cause both students and teachers the greatest amount of difficulty, not to mention other grammar points such as conditionals, modals, active and passive voice.

Going to future and simple future have very subtle differences and it can be very tricky for learners. With this part I think learners can benefit a lot if teachers can design interesting activities that allow them to engage, study and activate. Teachers should be able to provide many interesting sentences that can demonstrate the usages and the subtle differences of difference formsIn this Unit I was able to learn about Books and Materials. I feel I´ve got more ideas about created material. The mentioned websites are very useful as well. I´ve learnt about advantages and disadvantages of using course book in the class room. It´s important for teacher (if he decides to use it) to choose the right course book, which will be suitable for his/her students.
