TESOL Videos - Anyone vs Any One - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
In this video Linda breaks down the difference between ?anyone? and ?any one?. While this set of words is often confused, the difference is actually quite simple. Watch the video for detailed explanations and examples on the two words.
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.
Unit 20 is an overview of common problems facing teachers of EFL and possible solutions. The first issue addressed is first lessons. This section was particularly helpful for me because the first lessons seems incredibly intimidating. It was noted that a teacher could be entering either into an existing group of students or a new group. If faced with a new group of students, a teacher will have to begin by establishing rapport between students as well as establishing rapport with students. It's also important to identify needs, aspirations, and English levels. The section provides a number of activities to establish rapport and identify needs simultaneously. The second section stressed the importance of \"warmers\" in getting a class engaged and provided a number of suitable options. When faced with large class sizes, it can be difficult for a teacher to ensure that all students are equally engaged but this unit provides a number of solutions. It can be helpful to break the class into smaller groups and appoint group leaders. Or, the whole class can be engaged simultaneously by using choral repetition. One of the most helpful problems addressed in this section was dealing with differing levels within a classroom. It turns out there are a number of useful options for dealing with differing English levels within the classroom. An educator can pair stronger/weaker students, vary materials and tasks, or simply let the difference in level exist. This unit was extremely useful and helped to build confidence in dealing with a number of possible issues.
