Bazaar vs Bizarre - English Grammar - Teaching Tips

 

In this video, we break down the difference between "bazaar" and "bizarre". These two words often cause confusion because of their spelling and similar pronunciation. The word ?bazaar? refers to a market, usually found in the Middle East, such as in this example: The Grand Bazaar in Istanbul is one of the largest and oldest covered markets in the world. ?Bizarre?, on the other hand, is an adjective and a synonym for "strange". "Everyone stared at the student who wore the bizarre outfit to school," is a good example for the word. We hope that this explanation clears up any confusion about the two words.

This lesson was concise, informative and helpful. I learnt about the sat tense and how to correctly use. I has also taught me about the perfect past, perfect continuous, past simple and past continuous tense and how to effectively teach it to my students with the use of great examples.I learned much more about sentence tenses in this unit which will help if I want to engage by coming up with a hypothetical sentence. This will be great for not only starting discussions in class but teach them the varying conditionals and why the sentences are worded the way they are.In this unit I've learned that it is important to know how to construct sentences properly specially when it is a past sentence. This is to help everyone to be clear with everything we say. It is an interesting unit to learn that there are different ways of constructing past sentences.
