Accept vs Except | Ask Linda! | English Grammar


These two words are often confused by native and non-native English speakers alike. The key thing to remember is that “accept” is a verb and a synonym of “to receive” as in the example “I accepted all my birthday gifts with gratitude”. “Except” on the other hand is a conjunction and a synonym of “apart from”. For example “When Susan travels she packs everything except the kitchen sink”. Remember, “accept” is a verb meaning “to receive” and “except” is a conjunction meaning “apart from”.

Pretty difficult but made me go back a couple lessons to revisit some concepts. Need to work on the engage part. Study and activate seem to come more naturally. First impression of a teacher is important so the engage part seems key in this process. Make sure students 'trust' their teacher.The Units are getting harder as I progress throughout the course. I am learning how to teach a variety of students and what would work best to implement my instruction. I hope as the units go on that they get easier because I am understanding them better. I hope to do well in this course.Another informative, detailed and very useful unit for new teachers. The past tense, just like the present tense is very important to be thoroughly understood by teachers so it can be explained well to international students. Nothing new to me, but the examples and tasks are great resources.
