Aid vs Aide - English Grammar - Teaching Tips

 

This video covers the difference between 'aid' and 'aide'. These two words often cause confusion for English learners due to their similar meaning and spelling. The word 'aid' refers to something that helps, such as teaching aids or a first-aid-kit. The word 'aide', on the other hand, refers to a person, a helper. So, remember that 'aid' is used for things and 'aide' is used for people.


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 explained how teachers need to plan lessons that act as helpful guides to teaching while maintaining the ESA methods and flexibility. It also discusses all the considerations that occur when creating a lesson plan as teachers need to be aware of the objective of the lesson while also ensuring they are using the appropriate tools, aids, and proper phases throughout.I found this chapter out of context according to the previous chapters. He could be among the other chapters related to the use of material and behavior in the classroom. Either way, I was able to understand what the specific characteristics of what material and its advantages and disadvantages are. Teachers can decide which works best with their methodology and personality.
