Aisle vs Isle - English Grammar - Teaching Tips

 

This video covers the difference between 'aisle' and 'isle'. As these two words have a similar pronunciation and spelling, their usage is often confused. The word 'aisle' is a noun and describes a passage between rows of seats in a church, in a theater, an airplane or between shelves in a supermarket. A suitable example sentece for the word 'aisle' would be: The aisle was crowded with people looking for seats. The word 'isle' is also a noun but has a very different meaning. It usually refers to a small island, such as here: The pirates were in search of the lost isle for buried treasure. As you can see, once you know the meanings of the two words, you will not confuse them as their meanings are very different.


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.

Of all the different tenses units I think this one I felt I grasped the concept of this one a little better than the other units. Again I think that breaking up the tenses so much is unnecessary in most foreign countries. If anything it probably will confuse the students more than help them.This unit teaches me how to use and where to use past tense for teaching this tense to learners. Described everything in simple form and gave many examples for make learners understand well. So detaily explained and helps not to make a mistakes and errors. It's useful for for future lessons.In this unit I learnt about the pros and cons of using a course book within a lesson. I learnt about different teaching materials that can be used in the classroom to help students learn and understand the language I will be teaching them. I also learnt some pros and cons of these materials.
