TESOL Videos - TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 2
In this episode of Chantelleâ€™s TEFL diary she takes us through her experiences with the second unit of her online TEFL course. Unit 2 of ITTTâ€™s 120-hour TEFL course focuses on parts of speech; nouns, verbs, adjectives etc. As Chantelle points out in her video, having a basic understanding of the rules behind parts of speech is an important part of being an English teacher and is something that many native speakers of English take for granted. Although, as native speakers, we may instinctively know when and where to use the different parts of speech; understanding how to explain the rules to an English learner is a very different matter.
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.
Phrasal verbs are very confusing for students in meaning and ways of use. Sometimes students can get the meaning of the verb, but in other cases not. Modal verbs are very usful to express diffrent moods such as obligation, necessity and etc. Formal versus informal language use by using modal verbs, which is diffrent from other language where there is a second person plural, differes from singular and it's quite easy to notice the difference.
