Modals and Passive Voice - How To Teach Modal Auxiliary Verbs

 

There are two main ways of approaching teaching modal auxiliary verbs. One is by selecting one modal auxiliary and one usage and focusing on that in that particular context. Another way, especially when teaching higher levels, is to choose a context, such as advice, and then use each of the most appropriate modal auxiliary verbs in a different way.


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.

Unit 2 covers the basics of English grammar, especially parts of speech. It covers verbs, nouns, prepositions, conjunctions, adjectives, and adverbs, as well as the rules governing them. It also provides suggestions for activities to use with students. Lastly, it describes the different subcategories of the parts of speech and provides a roadmap for future grammar lessons.I have reviewed all the rules that apply to the Present tenses. It was very useful to go over the usage again and make sure to use the right tense in the right situation. I loved learning about the ideas for the Activate stage when teaching the Present tense as well as the common mistakes/errors that the Students make.I have learnt how to structure the lesson of the tenses.
