Bad vs Badly - English Grammar - Teaching Tips

 

In this video we explain the difference in using "bad" and "badly". The key difference is that 'bad' is used as an adjective and 'badly' as an adverb. Therfore, 'bad' describes that something is not good, while 'badly' refers to something that is done in a bad manner, harmfully or in correctly. A good example sentence for 'bad' would be "Jenny had a car accident today. This is bad". Let's look at an example for 'badly': "Austin behaved badly". I'm sure you'll never confuse the two words again.


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.

This unit focused on what makes a good teacher and learner. Teachers have several roles that they can use in different situations in the classroom to bring out the best in their students. It's a teacher's responsibility to be aware of a student's level of experience with the English language.Unit 13, I like this unit, and the questions that it provided because it was fun to solve and learn. Learning the phonemic alphabet was fun to learn and is something that I wanted to learn for ages, it is also an ingenious way to teach language learners by using sounds instead of whole words.This unit has been very helpful. It has given me many examples of equipment to use in a classroom and which phase of the lesson to use them. There are many resources in this unit to look up information about many different parts of the english language, for definition and teaching techniques.
