Everyday vs Every Day - English Grammar - Teaching Tips


"Because of their many similarities, these two words are often confused. Let?s take a look at their differences. ?Everyday? spelled as one word is an adjective and used to describe something that?s ?ordinary? or ?typical.? For example: Everyday crime is a big problem for many cities these days. ?Every day?, on the other hand, is a phrase or an expression that simply means ?each day?, such as here: I have an apple at work every day. So remember, ?everyday? is an adjective describing something typical or ordinary, while ?every day? means ?each day?. That?s it for today. See you next time!"

This unit covered pronunciation and phonology.Phonology is the study,science,analysis and classification of the physical properties of sounds.Topics covered were Intonation,stress and rhythm.Also covered was the phonetic alphabet and its use to help students to come to an understanding of the pronounciation of English.Learnt the basic use of the phonetic alphabet.I have taught English before but never been through any structured courses, it is very interesting to see what makes a good teacher and a good student, I also start to think about what age group I would like to teacher in the future. It's important to know how to cater for different student groups and what technique to use during class. A very informative session.
