TEFL Videos - Aisle vs Isle - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
This video covers the difference between 'aisle' and 'isle'. As these two words have a similar pronunciation and spelling, their usage is often confused. The word 'aisle' is a noun and describes a passage between rows of seats in a church, in a theater, an airplane or between shelves in a supermarket. A suitable example sentece for the word 'aisle' would be: The aisle was crowded with people looking for seats. The word 'isle' is also a noun but has a very different meaning. It usually refers to a small island, such as here: The pirates were in search of the lost isle for buried treasure. As you can see, once you know the meanings of the two words, you will not confuse them as their meanings are very different.
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.
To test the students before the beginning of the course will help the teacher to plan a syllabus better and make the best out of the classes. The progress tests and other types of evaluation tests will ensure the efficacy of the course and what are the students weaknesses and points to be careful while teaching. This unit focused on course development. There was a heavy focus on testing and ensuring students are learning what best suits when, the school you are working at, and falls within in the limitations you are teaching under. I was surprised by all the different types of testing standards and type used to evaluate students. I currently in Japan which has a very unique system of evaluating students English ability. I think it is good that I am exposed to more internationally accepted standards of testing students as it gives me fuller understand of how to develop a course.
