Lose vs Loose | Ask Linda! | English Grammar


This set of words is often confused in English. Let's take a closer look: "Lose" is a verb and means: To fail to keep, To fail to win, To fail to make money. Let's look at an example for each: To fail to keep: I will lose weight but also my hair. To fail to win: I'm expected to lose this game. To fail to make money I will lose a fortune. "Loose" on the other hand is an adjective and means not tight or free from constraint. These trousers are loose. I?m sure the difference is clear now. 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.

In this unit I have become aware of the necessary teaching aids that are needed in order to help the students grasp the English language more. These include boards, and with the board writing must be done in a specific manner i.e sectioning the board and writing neatly to mention a few. Futhermore gadgets such as video cameras can be used to help analyze performance.The content of this lessons has been meticulously broken downto show the true relationship that should be existent between a teacher and students. Overall, ive learnt that as a good teacher i must put the learners first, leading them in love as well as with discipline. Ensuring that the end result is positive i.e them being able to communicate effectively. Thank you.
