Bring vs Take - English Grammar - Teaching Tips

 

The terms bring and take are often confused as both words describe the movement of something from one location to another. The word "bring" describes the movement of something toward a specified location. For example: Can you bring some snacks to the party tonight? "Take" on the other hand generally describes the movement of something away from a location, such as here: Do you want to take any leftovers home? So next time you?re unsure think about the direction of the movement and it should be clear which word to use. 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.

I also found the review of the Boomerang lesson plan helpful.This unit is very informative and in-depth on modal verbs when learning English. I learned about the basic rules and teaching ideas teachers can utilize when teaching modal verbs. Modal verbs are simply to help and emphasize meaning to the verbs. Unit 18 also touch on the importance of phrasal verbs, the passive voice, and relative clauses in English communication.
