Yellow-Bellied - English Idioms


The idiom "yellow-bellied" refers to a coward or cowardly behavior, for example: My brother called me yellow-bellied when I didn't want to touch the spider in the attic.

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.

I enjoyed this unit and believe keeping the exams or tests short and to the point is much better then long drawn out essays on a certain topic. I also enjoy the reading portion with all the information given in a short concise manner. So far i am enjoying this learning experience.This unit consists of the past tenses, the past simple, past perfect, past continuous and past perfect continuous. We learned the regular and irregular forms of the verbs when using them in the past. It is very useful to be given the common mistakes students do and teaching ideas.I learnt that the past tense and the present tense are not that much different. The irregular simple past form seems a bit challenging because there is no formula to form them. The rest of the regular forms are quite simple because they have a straight forward way of forming them.
