English Grammar -- Present Simple -- Teaching Ideas 3 -- TEFL Course The Present Simple tense teaching idea in this video is called "20 Questions." The teacher frames this game in the context of, What's my job? Who am I? What am I? (for objects) A student comes to the front of the room and selects a card. The class then asks appropriate questions such as; Do you work in an office? Do you wear a uniform? And try to guess the job, person or object. The student with the card answers using the Present Simple. Each student has a turn and there is a two minute time limit for each person. When teaching the Present Simple tense or any other grammar point, a good English language teacher will always model the language correctly. Students need to be exposed to new language, they need to understand its meaning, they need to understand how it is constructed and they need to be given as many opportunities to practice and produce it as possible. An ITTT TEFL Course will give you the appropriate skills to be able to model the language and deliver productive and meaningful lessons to your students.

This unit reviews what is important about teaching vocabulary, grammar and functions. It covers what matters when choosing material and how to teach it. It also discusses what tends to be more difficult for students. Exercises are suggested for each phase of a class, independent of whether you are using the straight arrow format, the boomerang, or the patchwork.To be a good teacher, his books and materials are essential. Therefore, this unit highlighted nicely on the importance of these objects. It was very practical to study the creating materials section. I really savor the ‘course book’ section, specifically the analyzing course book area. The course book and study material unit was very supportive for me.
