May vs Might | English Grammar | Ask Linda!


Contrary to popular belief, may and might are not interchangeable as they have slightly different meanings. 'May' refers to a possibility and 'might' conveys more uncertainty. Let's take a look at some examples: There are dark clouds in the sky. It may rain later today. The dark clouds in the sky indicate a possibility of rain. I'm sick but I might come to the party. In this example, the speaker is does not feel well and he is uncertain about attending the party. So, there is only a slight chance that he might actually go to the party. Therefore, always look out for the context and choose the right word based upon the level of possibility. 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.

There are various types of metodologies in teaching. The best teaching technique is the \"straight Arrow\" ESA lesson. where we have the Engage-Study-Activate. I habe also learned that, Corrections gots its time agnd limits during a lesson. It is best praising a student than correcting them because praising is another way you can use to do correction during a lessonI particularly enjoyed the writing skills section of this unit, including the ideas for games to help students with their learning and understanding. I enjoyed learning about the importance of creative writing and why it is important to encourage this. The activity lesson plans are useful to use for the classroom and helped with my overall understanding of this unit.
