Historic vs Historical - English Grammar - Teaching Tips


This video covers the difference between 'historic' and 'historical'. These two words often cause confusion for English learners. The word ?historic? refers to something or someone famous and/or important in history, such as historic attractions, historic figures or historic events. The word 'historical', on the other hand, describes history itself, such as historical events or historical evidence. These are simply things that happened in the past and they weren?t necessarily important or famous.

It was a reflection of Reading and Listening. Something I wasn't good at in my high school years. However now understanding that it's not only a matter of reading and writing, it's also a matter of where the mind would be going.I learned from unit 12 about Receptive skills –reading and listening that it is very important to know first what is the reason and motives for the reading and listening in the lesson. To be able to build the lesson in logic way that will flow and will achieve the best results.
