TESOL Videos - Further vs Farther - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
The two words "farther" and "further" are a pair of words that is often used interchangeably to talk about distances. However, not many know that there is actually a slight difference between the two. "Farther" is used for physical distances. So we would use it in this example: "Tokyo is farther away than Beijing". When using "further" we talk about non-physical, figurative distances, for example "I'm falling further away from my goals". As you can see, the two words have slighty different usages. However, in spoken English the two words are often used interchangeably without a difference. However, if you are keen to use them properly, you should stick to the rules mentioned above.
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.
This unit was a highly useful exploration of designing courses for young learners. Everything from placement tests and needs assessments, to creating syllabi that students will see (as well as ones for the teachers/schools to use), when to give progress tests, and also information about standard examinations such as the CYLE tests, the KET and the PET. And of course, especially important for me as a new teacher (though, of course, useful to teachers throughout their careers), ideas for the course evaluation, which will be important in helping me to continue evolving and improving as an English teacher.
