How to Pronounce 'THRASONICAL'- English Grammar


In this episode, we cover the pronunciation of the word thrasonical. This word is a synonym for boastful or bragging. It orginates from the fictional character Thraso, who is a soldier in the comedy Eunuchus, a play written by Terence over 2,000 years ago. Due to his bragging nature, Thraso was the inspiration for this word.

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 Lesson Planning unit provided me with ideas, tips and guidance on how to properly plan and administer my lessons before the start of a class. It is very useful because it gave me a basis and understanding of how a trained teacher should conduct an English Language class generally.Unit 3 is loaded with informative teaching styles, and how we can use each part of it to help the learners in professional ways. I like ESA technique and the way it produce, and collect in information to and from learners it might take a little bit of work time, but it's rich and fun.It was a good unit. it reminds us to be very attentive to tense usage. because it is easy to confuse some the tenses. I personally don't like grammar activities. I would say i didn't enjoy reading or doing this unit. but ofcourse know knowledge is lost as I gained from doing the unit.
