English Grammar - Future Perfect - Teaching Ideas - Teach English as a Foreign Language

 

http://www.teflcourse.net This video from one of ITTT's teach English as a foreign language courses covers three teaching ideas for the future perfect tense. The future perfect is used to talk about things that will have been completed by a certain date in the future. The first idea involves asking students the following question "What will you have done by ...?" with an appropriate time in the future. For example: "What will you have done by the time you are 25?" "I will have become an English teacher". The second idea involves giving students monthly calendars to complete and asking them to say what they will have done by the end of the month. The last idea involves asking questions about a famous person and what they will have achieved in the future. "How many awards will she have won by 2025?" "How many films will he have starred in by the time he is 50?" For more ideas on how to teach grammar points to English language learners and to get qualified to teach English as a foreign language consider taking one of ITTT's courses.

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.

In this unit we studied teaching productive skills: speaking and writing by using accuracy activities( guided and controlled), and fluency activities(be creative with the Language). In accuracy based activities, the teacher is in control. In fluency based activities the output is student based. We reviewed some examples and techniques to encourage interaction.As I progress in this course I am learning how to assemble more dynamic lesson plans. In this unit I've learned about specific skills used in receptive learning and how to be flexible with students by knowing how we all understand information. This unit has also showed me how to choose texts for a classroom that will be interesting, helpful and engaging to all.
