Modals and Passive Voice - Semi-Modal Auxiliary Verbs

 

Semi-modal auxiliary verbs can cause a lot of confusion with English students. These auxiliary verbs differ with true modals in that they change their form depending on the pronoun the follow. An example of a semi-modal auxiliary verb is "need to". Watch the video for the complete explanation.


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.

This unit discusses how a teacher can provide a lesson plan on the same topic, but how he or she teaches can have an effect on the level of interest students show in it and how well they learn the material. A more engaging lesson plan gets the attention of students more easily than a scripted lesson plan, which can lead them to getting bored in class.Here we are again the unit's reflection area where great observations are being said. This unit is really different from the previous unit, that is unit 4 I guess. My knowledge about past simple past continuous past perfect continuous has really improved. It has been simplified for everyone's understanding and I really think it was of great help to me.
