English Grammar - Future continuous - Teaching Ideas - ESOL

 

http://www.teflcourse.net The teaching idea for the future continuous covered in this video involves students picking a card with a picture of an activity on it and inviting their partner to join them. The other student then has to think up an excuse not to as quickly as possible in the future continuous tense. For example: Student A: Would you like to see a movie at the weekend? Student B: Sorry I can't, I'll be washing my hair. Ideas such as this are a great way for ESOL students to put the language they are learning to use in the classroom. Teaching ESOL (teaching English to speakers of other languages) is a fascinating and highly rewarding career choice and one which has a growing number of opportunities at the moment. One of the best ways to become an ESOL teacher is to take an internationally recognized TESOL certificate course. The video above is taken from one of ITTT's online ESOL courses and you can find out more about these at the link above. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Are you ready to Teach English Abroad? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pcXD_GNR04 -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-


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.

Future tenses and their usage have been discussed. Just to pick on a few; future perfect continuous tenses show how long an action had been taking place to a certain point in future, future perfect tense shows actions in the future that will be completed at a point in the future and future simple tense is about making predictions that have no evidence attached.The unit is about tenses. The tenses covered are those under the present time. the unit deals on the topic with the formation, usage and the way of teaching these tenses. It gave a glimpse about the different opinions of the linguistics and suggested the best for TEFL student. I learnt mostly the usage of these tenses and how they can be presented in the class.
