Principal vs Principle - English Grammar - Teaching Tips

 

This video covers the difference between 'principal' and 'principle'. These two words often cause confusion for English learners due to their similar spelling. The word 'principal' can be used as a noun and as an adjective. As a noun, it refers to a person of authority, like a school principal, the head of a school. When used as an adjective, it means 'leading' or 'primary', like a principal cause or reason. The word 'principle', on the other hand, is only used as a noun and refers to a moral or standard, like the principle of free speech.

I look forward to the next chapter.In this unit the grammatical functions and variety is discussed there is a variety of esa patchwork that is talked about in this unit it is very helpful in suggesting different techniques used when teaching and Also talks about teachability of some words and how theybshouldbe used.I find it very helpful that each stage of learning language there are activities and ideas provided for each step of learning. It is also a lot to take on and learn as well and i will have to be careful to do the right activity that matches the learning stage and not muddle them up.
