Capital vs Capitol - English Grammar - Teaching Tips

 

These two terms are often confused due to their similar spelling and pronunciation. Let?s take a closer look. The word "capital" is used to refer to a capital letter, a city that serves as a center of government and also wealth in the form of money or property. For example: In American schools, the capital letter "A" means your work was at least 90% correct. Tokyo is the capital of Japan. The business did not have enough capital to buy the new building. "Capitol" spelled with an ?o? on the other hand refers to the actual capitol buildings in Washington, D.C. and in each US state. The United States Capitol building is located in Washington, D.C. Next time, think about whether you are referring to a letter, wealth, a city or a capitol building. 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.

During this content I have reviewed my new found knowledge of the class structure, for example the straight arrow and the boomerang structure. I have also learnt the important do's and do not's when teaching new vocabulary to students. The unit included new and interesting style for teaching such as role play and debates which I can incorporate into future lessons.In this unit we learned the difference between authentic and non authentic material; also were we can find material available on the internet for business teachers. I thought one of the best ideas was to look into the web page of the company for whom you are teaching so you can find reports, charts, etc that will serve you as a good resource of authentic material.
