TESOL Videos - The Future Tenses - Other Future Forms - Present Simple & Present Continuous
Besides the actual future tenses, we can also use present tenses to talk about the future. Two of them are the present simple and the present continuous. Find out when to use which tense for future statements in this video.
This is what one of our TEFL graduates feels he has gained from the course, or a part of it, and how he plans to put into action what he has learned.
In unit 17 we learned about equipment and teaching aids. This unit introduced and discussed many tools teachers can use in their classroom to help enhance the learning experience. The unit covered everything from proper blackboard/whiteboard usage, to radio/casette/cd players, to dictionaries and online resources. Of course each piece of equipment has its own positives and negatives. For example, overhead projectors can be an extremely useful tool. Personally, I really like them as they allow teachers to have the whole class on the same page about an exercise or topic. It is very handy to be able to prepare an OHT of a nice authentic reading not in a digital platform and be able to follow along with the class. Additionally OHPs are useful to make copies of student's work to go over (of course without names to avoid public shaming) with the class. However, OHPs have their disadvantages as they often can be tricky to use and take time to set up properly. Moreover, a clear projection can sometimes be a difficult reality for many reasons. However, despite this unit covering a lot of new technology and modern ideas what I really learned was related to black/whiteboards. That is not to write in all capital letters as it has been found to be more difficult to read. That really surprised me. I do not usually like to write in all capital letters but of course it has happened occasionally as a way to emphasize but now that I have read that I will not do it again and instead stick to circling, underlining, or using a different color.
