Adapt vs Adopt - English Grammar - Teaching Tips


Due to the similar spelling and pronunciation, these two words are often confused. Let?s break it down. 'Adapt' is used as a verb and refers to the action of taking something and changing it for a special purpose. For example: A screenwriter successfully adapts the book to make it work as a movie. "Adopt" is also used as a verb but has a different meaning. It refers to the action of taking something and using it or making it your own. Because they couldn't have children of their own, they decided to adopt a child. So remember, 'adapt' means to change something for a special purpose and 'adopt' means to make something your own. That?s it for today. See you next time!

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.

This unit was an excellent introductory unit to the TEFL Course. The unit covered topics such as the role of a teacher in the classroom, characteristics of good learners and teachers. The unit also showed the carious levels of language learners stating from Beginners to the more Advanced learners of the language. The Unit also showed the Common European Framework.Course books can be a somewhat controversial issue for teachers. Some prefer them others dislike their use. Choosing a course book is a matter of preference for the teacher. Every book has teachers who swear by them and others who do not like them. Many students prefer materials created by the teacher and find it more interesting and results in more engaged students.
