Historic vs Historical - English Grammar - Teaching Tips


This video covers the difference between 'historic' and 'historical'. These two words often cause confusion for English learners. The word ?historic? refers to something or someone famous and/or important in history, such as historic attractions, historic figures or historic events. The word 'historical', on the other hand, describes history itself, such as historical events or historical evidence. These are simply things that happened in the past and they weren?t necessarily important or famous.

Course Books arouse or move teachers in different directions. Some like them and swear by them and other hate or do not like them. Every published course book has its fans and its detractors. It is a real complex issue on whether to use Course Books or not. I like Course Books because it gives me a great syllabus to work with, and the the materials has been tried and tested.This unit helped me gain a clearer understanding of the twelve tenses and how to properly formulate sentences and questions for each of the time periods. It taught me good ways to explain this information to students, having learned it myself. It strengthened my understanding of perfect verses simple verses continues tenses. Overall it was a very informative and useful unit.
