In this episode, we cover the pronunciation of the word "purport". This word is a noun and is a synonym for the words implied or conveyed. The word comes from Middle English and Anglo-French and was first used in the English language in the 15th century. An example sentence with the word purport includes: Everyone was informed of the purport of the letter.
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.
Unit 8 is about Future Tenses. Expressing the future time in English is particularly fraught with problems not only because there are so many different forms to choose from, but also because the distinction between them is not always clear. The future tense expresses a future event or a future state of being. 1. The Future Simple. This is the form that most people immediately associate with the future tense, but it is in fact restricted in its use. Usages: to talk about unplanned or spontaneous future events; for predictions that are not based on current evidence. 2. The Future Continuous. we use the Future Continuous to talk about predicted or planned events that start at some unspecified time in the future and are still occurring at a given time in the future. 3. The Future Perfect. We use this tense to look at events or actions from a point in the future after we expect the event or action to have already finished. It is often accompanied by a time phrase beginning with either by or before. 4. The Future Perfect Continuous. Rather like the Future Perfect Simple, this tense is used to view future events that have already happened from a more distant point in the future The main difference between the two being that by using the Future Perfect Continuous, we are emphasising the duration of the event. 5. Be going+infinitive. This is an unusual compound form since it is made up of the Present Continuous tense of the verb go with to + the main verb, so it is easy to confuse this with a normal Present Continuous. 6. The Present Simple. The foremost use of this tense form to indicate future time is almost certainly after time conjunctions such as after, before, when, if, until, as soon as and so on. 7. The Present Continuous. We have already met the Present Continuous when talking about present, temporary events and actions, so, it can also be used to refer to events that have not even started yet.
