TESOL Videos - The Past Tenses - Overview - Past Simple and Past Continuous
In this video, we provide you with a useful overview of the various past tenses. We focus here especially on the differences between the past simple and past continuous.
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.
This unit covers the resources available to English teachers. The equipment and aids available can help take lessons from uninspiring and boring to efficient and interesting. There are so many different ways to go about using equipment in the classroom. One of the newest pieces of technology is known as the interactive whiteboard which is exactly how it sounds, a white board that has touch capabilities and connects to a computer. You also have normal white boards and black boards as well. Overhead projectors are the next best thing. Visuals such as pictures are a must have, then there are worksheets that are a great supplement. Although it was covered in a previous unit there are coursebooks as well which can literally provide the foundation for lesson because they have a built in syllabus. Resource books can compliment the text books as well. There are also different media aids too. These include: tape cassettes, cds, DVD/videos and recorder. Finally there are computers which brings the class into a modern environment. These aren't even all of the available aids. I feel like this unit reminds me of my classes growing up. Most of these aids are used in all other subjects so the point is for teachers to recall and think about how to apply these to our own lessons. This unit provides so many different online resources and online dictionaries that I can't wait to try out. Also I learned that with so many different equipment and aids teachers can keep students stimulated and cater to all different learning styles.
