Affected vs Effected - English Grammar - Teaching Tips


This is another set of words that is easily confused in English. Let?s take a closer look: "Affected" means "impacted, created an effect on, changed in a certain way." For example: The BP oil spill adversely affected marine wildlife in the Gulf of Mexico and surrounding areas. "Effected", on the other hand, means "executed, brought about, produced something." For example: After the BP oil spill, the government effected sweeping environmental regulation. I hope the difference is clear now. 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 was a helpful lesson geared towards the different difficulties that are going to happen in the classroom. I feel more informed about what to do with large groups as well as reluctant learners. I realize that I need to establish rappport with my students before I can thoroughly teach them properly. I must make sure they know me somewhat before this takes place.This unit was fun and shed light on many questions that were developing in my head as the units continue. The setting up of classrooms, dealing with discipline issues were very useful and has reduced my stress when thinking about those issues. I am excited to know that as the teacher you can actually arrange the class according to the needs of the lesson at hand.
