Invite vs Invitation - English Grammar - Teaching Tips


This mistake is so common that many accept is as an alternative. However, you should avoid it if you want to speak English properly. Let's take a closer look: "Invite" is a verb and refers to asking someone if they'd like to do something or go somewhere. For example: I want to invite all my friends to a BBQ party. "Invitation", on the other hand, is a noun and refers to the actual message asking someone if they'd like to do something or go somewhere. For example: I sent out an invitation to all my friends. What people often do is using 'invite' as a noun. The sentence 'I haven't responded to her invite yet.' is therefore incorrect. I hope this clears up any confusion. 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.

I found this unit to be tricky, learning about the different past tenses, I struggled to differentiate between Past Perfect and Past Perfect Continuous. There needed to be more variety of examples for both I felt as they are so similar. The simplest tense to learn was the Past Simple, there were more examples I felt within the definitions that helped make it clear.The unit gives a brief overview of such grammar structures as reported speech and conditionals. It describes the rules of tense conversion in reported speech and mentions the areas where students are more likely to make mistakes. Also this unit covers different types of conditionals, their usage, typical students' mistakes, activities used to practise conditionals.
