Interesting vs Interested - English Grammar - Teaching Tips


This video covers the difference between 'interested' and 'interesting'. As these two words have a similar pronunciation and spelling, their usage is often confused. 'Interesting' describes the people or things that cause the feeling of interest to someone, for example: Today's lesson about world history is very interesting. 'Interested', on the other hand, describes how someone feels, such as here: I am very interested in learning another language.

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.

As in other units, this unit focuses solely on the grammar for the teacher, so that the teacher can remember the grammatical rules of the language that will teach. As stated earlier, grammar rules may not be clear to the teacher who has learned the language in practice from day to day. Therefore, these are the grammatical rules that the teacher needs to pass on to the students.Wow, that was a quick lesson. Some good insights (do not use the course book in the first lesson, for example) and cool warming up games. I will refer back to this unit once I start teaching, right now it's a little tough to remember everything without facing the actual situation. Thank you for this interesting course! I learned a lot, had fun and can't wait to start teaching.
