Then vs Than | Ask Linda! | English Grammar


This mistake is one of the most common ones ? even for native English speakers. Let?s take a look at this sentence: My car is better then yours. Does this look right to you? Nope, sorry. It should be 'than'. 'Than' is a conjunction used to compare things, whereas 'then' is an adverb used to situate actions in time, such as here: I woke up, and then I took a shower. The next time you're using 'then/than' in a sentence, ask yourself whether it is used to sequence actions or to compare things and you'll definitely get it right. 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.

Unit 4 was a great refresher about present tenses. This was very helpful in reminding me about proper grammatical sentence structuring. The unit covered the present simple: affirmative, negative, and question forms. These can be habits, routines, situations, and facts. Overall, was a helpful unit that made me realize the importance of grammar in the english language.This lesson has been really helpful to give me a greater understanding of good lesson planning and also highlighted the importance of lesson planning. I will incorporate the ESA-format in my lesson planning and try to use as many creative techniques to increase student involvement in activities. I have learnt a lot about the best ways to give feedback and correction.
