TESOL Videos - Then vs Than - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
In this video, Linda explains the difference between "then" and "than" two words often confused by native and non-native English speakers alike. "Than" is a conjunction used for comparisons, such as here: "Her car is faster than yours". "Then", on the other hand, is an adverb used to situate actions e.g. "I did my homework, then I had a nap?. As you can see, the usages of the two words is very different and cannot be used interchangeably. Keep their differences in mind and you'll not make any mistakes in the future.
This is what one of our TEFL graduates feels he has gained from the course, or a part of it, and how he plans to put into action what he has learned.
I?ve enjoyed working on this unit. It helped me to revise the material on international distribution of English levels. I also learnt what factors will influence me, when I will create syllables for my students. I revised the material on types of the tests and now I have clear picture of purposes of different tests. Honestly, unit was adequate and very user friendly. However, personally speaking, I consider myself to have comprehension somewhat of a lower level, so, absorbing the content took more time and was somewhat difficult for me. However, I did try u best of what I can for the moment but of course, I'll review and study about it more to understand better and apply myself.
