Conditionals and Reported Speech - The First Conditional


The first conditional is used for likely results of possible future situations, as well as promises, threats, warnings or back-up plans. This video is specifically aimed at teaching the first conditional in an ESL setting.

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.

In this unit, the main focus is on the teaching of new vocabulary to students, the steps that should be taken, and what happens during these steps. It also discussed the different strategies to teach new vocabulary by alternating the steps in different ways, I can see myself applying these in my future teachings since vocabulary is key in learning a new language.This unit was helpful with learning how to plan out a lesson. It shows that it is best to have some sort of written guidelines for what you are trying to teach for the day. Listing activities and topics to be discussed is beneficial but there needs to be flexibility in the lesson plan in case some topics take longer or shorter time periods to teach than expected.
