Silver Screen - English Idioms


The idiom "silver screen" refers to the movie industry. This term originates from the 1910s when movie screens were coated with reflective metallic paint giving them a silver surface to display the projected images.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

The unit gives an explanation of using all of the four past tenses with the examples and common errors. It also provides the information about games and activities which can be useful to teach students this topic. I found the unit really necessary for me to review the past tenses.This unit taught a lot about parts of speech. Things like nouns, verbs, adjectives, prepositions, conjunctions, definite and indefinite articles, and gerunds. These things are the foundation of speaking English and are very important to learn if you want to speak English properly.In unit 8, I have learned and completed coverage of the tense system. The future simple, future continuous, future perfect, future perfect continuos and 'be going to' future usage. How to use their structures and usages. Also, I learned some activities and gaves for the classroom.
