Bring vs Take - English Grammar - Teaching Tips


This video focuses on the difference between the usage of "bring" and "take". These two words often cause confusion, especailly for English learners. It is important to consider the direction in order to determine which word to use. The word "bring" describes the movement of something toward a specified location, such as in this sentence: Can you bring some snacks to the party tonight? The word "take" on the other hand generally describes the movement of something away from a location, such as here: Do you want to take any leftovers home? As you can see, it's quite easy to determine the correct word to use in a sentence when considering the direction you are referring to.

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.

I believe that the above-mentioned methods have influenced current TEFL practices because the focus language teaching nowadays is more student-centred , many ESL teacher training institutes are now advocating more activities to practice with language and lesser teacher-centred lessons.In this unit I learned about what I can expect to learn in the up coming units. I reviewed the acronyms and the advantages and disadvantages of teaching to young people. I learned what is a young learner and also what to expect as a job in another country: prospects, salary and hours.This is a good unit to have at the End of a course and will be a good unit to look back at and use for the first lesson I have with a ESL class. The information about first lessons is good t have a plan for the first lesson which I sure can be very hard to work back from if done badly.
