Cite vs Site - English Grammar - Teaching Tips


This video covers the difference between 'cite' and 'site'. These two words often cause confusion for English learners due to their similar spelling. The word 'cite' is used as a verb and means to make reference to someone or something, like citing experts in a paper. The word 'site', on the other hand, is used as a noun and describes a location or place, like the site of an earthquake or the site of a war. We are sure you won?t confuse the two words again.

This was a tricky unit for me. I con cofused when learning the relative clauses and the phrasal verbs. I will definitely have to look up more examples and practice analysing similar sentences. It's sometimes hard to know the difference between them and I mix them up trying to my logical sense of it. It seems speaking 3 different languages has it's cons.Thanks to this unit, I could review my competences in the usage of past tenses in English. It has been very useful because il helped me to clarify the different typologies of verbs, tenses and aspects, that I sometimes use without the correct knowledge of them. It is also a good base for teaching in the clearest way the different tenses to the students.
