TESOL Videos - Invite vs Invitation - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
This video breaks down the difference between the two words "invite" and "invitation". They are often used interchangeably but actually aren't synonyms. The word ?invite? is a verb and refers to the action of asking someone if they?d like to do something or go somewhere, such as here: 'I want to invite all my friends to a BBQ party'. "Invitation", on the other hand, is a noun and refers to the actual message of asking someone if they?d like to do something or go somewhere. A suitable example would be: 'I sent out an invitation to all my friends'. A very common mistake is to use 'invite' as a noun instead of 'invitation'. However, the sentence ?I haven?t responded to her invite yet? is incorrect and 'invitation' should be used.

As the transmission of any knowledge should be orginised in such way that make it possible, this unit aims to give strong competences to the teachers in order to elaborate a good lesson plan. Even though some theorists suggest that lesson planning is not a good idea as it could be too much teacher centered, it is good to say that proper lesson planning should be flexible rather than rigid and aim to bring solutions to the needs of the students. Lesson planning is a crucial mean in the hands of the teacher as it provides him with guidelines on how to operate effectivly during the class session. A good lesson plan functions include an aid to planning, a working document, and a record. The aid to planning consist in writing down what the teacher expects the students to achieve by the end of the lesson and how he intends to reach that goal. The working document here refers to this support on which is written the teacher's lesson plan. It helps keeping on target and gives guidelines to follow during the lesson and should not stop the teacher from being flexible. A lesson plan acts as a record of what the class have done and wich materials have been used and is very helpful when it comes to follow the progression of the students. The teacher should be aknowledged that a good lesson plan should be written in respect with some principles such as simplicity, not to try to script the lesson, and trying to make sure the activities fit together to give the lesson a smooth flow. A good lesson plan should also be well organised and include learner objectives - which is what the teacher want the students to be able to do by the end of the lesson, procedures, phase, timing and more.
