TESOL Videos - 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 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.
After watching the videos in unit ten,i have the confident that i can correct all the mistakes the teacher made in the first video and apply all the good quality he display in the second video. I saw in the first video a lack of ESA (Engage Study Activate)technique application by the teacher,among other poor teaching qualities that made it difficult for the student to participate fully in the lesson.For example ,in the first video,the teacher did not define the model auxiliary verb,can and could have helped the students to use it in a creative manner.He was speaking very fast and looked unhappy during the lesson.All the latter made the students looked intimidated.He was even reading his book at one point. I learned a lot in the second video .I saw all what i read in unit three been applied in this video and also the quality a good teacher should have .There was a high level of ESA (Engage Study Activate)technique applied in the second lesson .In this video the teacher coming in to the classroom with a lot of life in him ,created more involvement by students in the lesson .He used prompting techniques that is drawing and pictures were used to help students understand the animals better.He defined the model auxiliary verb ,can and can't and by so doing the students could use the verb in a creative manner.I think he used a straight arrow lesson plan application in the second video because the teacher took the lesson in the ESA order and follow on questions by which the teacher asked a target question to get a particular type of answer .In short,most of the things i learned so far as to what is expected of a TEFL or TESOL teacher was seen in this second video.
