English Grammar -- Present Simple -- Teaching Ideas 2- TEFL Online


This video outlines the second of three teaching ideas for the Present Simple tense. The students each have a picture with the title "This is Nicola. Nicola is a student. This is her room." In the picture there are lots of items such as a television, a coffee pot, a guitar....In small groups the students list as many facts about Nicola as possible using the Present Simple. For example, She plays the guitar. She drinks coffee. She watches television. After a specified time the groups come together and share their answers with the class.

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 talks about teaching different types of groups such as beginners, individual students, young learners, business English students, monolingual and multilingual classes. For all the mentioned kinds of groups the unit shows suitable activities, methodologies and techniques, possible problems, motivation and things to be considered in order to make lessons enjoyable and useful.While other units provide what is it we should be teaching, this unit tells us ways to approach teaching material such as vocabulary and grammar. I believe this unit taught me there will need to be a bit of 'getting to know' the students before an appropriate/effective approach to vocab and grammar can be constructed, as it depends a lot of how appropriate it is for the student body.
