This video covers the difference between 'discreet' and 'discrete'. Their similar spelling and pronunciation makes them a word pair that is often confused. The word 'discreet' describes something that is unnoticeable and/or modest, whereas 'discrete' refers to something that is separate and distinct.

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.

In this unit, i was able to learn ,how to teach my students the different skills in english such as reading,listening ,speaking and writing in a lesson ,while maintaining the balance.And also how to get all the students interested and involve in the lesson with detail understanding.This unit was interesting. I thought the actual examples of the teacher in the lesson was a great way to express the concept of this lesson. It was difficult to watch the first teacher in the lesson because he was ill-prepared. This is a great template to return to in the future.Short, simple and sometimes not typical observation of past tenses with a focus given directly to grammatical structures which are not most commonly used . In this unit we see clear definition of both form and meaning that makes the understanding (or even revision) 100% successfull.
