TESOL Videos - Less vs Fewer- English Grammar - Teaching Tips
Here we look at the difference between "less" and "fewer". This set of words is often used incorrectly and we decided to take a closer look at the difference to help you avoid mistakes. The key difference is that the word "less" is used to refer to uncountable things while "fewer" is used to refer to countable things. Keeping this in mind will help you figure out which word to use in all situations. Remember the '10 items or less' line at the supermarket" Well, it's actually a mistake. If you are purchasing several items then these items are countable, which means the checkout should be called the ?10 items or fewer" line. Other examples of the difference between the two words are "I have been to fewer countries than you" (countable),"I have less money than you" (uncountable).

In this unit the course development was examined. There are many ways a teacher can develop a course for the young learners and also there are many factors that can influence it. Not always your idea about the perfect syllable will match the school?s requirements. Students age, level of language, cultural differences all of these should be taken into consideration while preparing a course. There are also many theories how to do the syllable, some schools already have it and a teacher will just have to follow it. "I have read this Unit and it very tricky, but in other hands it good, it will also help you as a teacher for your future.And this course also taught me many abbreviations E.G. PET,KET and CYLE etc. This Unit will help to know how to handle your class, and also I learned the kind of tests I have to give to my young learners. "
