TESOL Videos - Modals and Passive Voice - What are modal auxiliary verbs?
This video focuses on modal auxiliary verbs. The words "might", "could" and "must" are modal auxiliary verbs. These verbs express the speaker's feeling or attitude towards the particular verb following the modal.
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 this Unit i have learned about breaking down a sentence and identifying each part of it. I find this very valuable moving forward as a teacher because i will need to be explaining the structure of a sentence and how to form one properly so it makes sense and flows correctly.This unit for me was just as confusing as the present tenses. This will require me coming back to this unit quite often before I will fully understand this topic. The formulas are easy to understand it is the different types of sentences that you can have that are confusing me.I have learnt the different types of phrasal verbs. I felt that the type 2 - transitive separable phrasal verb could use more elaborated examples as I did not get it the first time I read the unit. I also learnt that in passive voice, the doer of the action is not as important.
