TEFL Videos - Advice vs Advise - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
This video covers the difference between 'advice' and 'advise'. As these two words have a similar pronunciation and spelling, their usage is often confused. In fact, the two words are both are from the same word stem but 'advice' is the noun and 'advise' is the verb. Therefore, their usages are not the same. 'Advice' refers to a proposal for an appropriate course of action. Please give us some advice about planning a trip to France. In this example, we use 'advice' because it is the noun. When we want to describe the action of giving advice or offering a suggestion, we use the verb, or 'advise' spelled with an 's'. A good example would be: I advised them to visit the Pyramids of Giza when they are in Egypt.
This is what one of our TEFL graduates feels he has gained from the course, or a part of it, and how he plans to put into action what he has learned.
I?ve enjoyed working on this unit. It helped me to revise the material on international distribution of English levels. I also learnt what factors will influence me, when I will create syllables for my students. I revised the material on types of the tests and now I have clear picture of purposes of different tests. "This unit's focus is on how an effective teacher can develop a course destined to young learners. In order to design a course for young learners, making the learning process not only effective but also interesting for the students the teacher has to take into consideration the needs of the students, possible limiting factors (which, of course, will limit the course itself in its contents) and strategies aimed at overcoming such obstacles and difficulties. The last part of the unit examins the various types of lesson plans a teachr can structure as well as the three stages of evaluation. "
