TEFL Videos - Between vs Among - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
This video breaks down the difference between "among" and "between". The word "between" is used to refer to two or more things that are distinct. A great example would be: "Choose between the red and the green socks". Here, we use "between" as the socks are clearly different and separated. "Among", on the other hand, is used to refer to things that are part of a group or mass, such as in this example: "Choose among all your socks" here we use ?among? because we are talking about all of the socks. Let's take a look at two more examples to make the difference even clearer. "I am walking between Baker Street and 5th Avenue." Here, we are talking about two separate streets and use 'between'. "I am walking among my friends." In this example, we're talking about more than two people and need to use 'among'. When unsure about which word to use, simply thin about if you are referring to something that is clearly separated or something that is part of a mass or a group.
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.
This unit is devoted to informing how to create an English course for young learners and what need to be taken into consideration to do this. It is explained how to create a syllabus and what types of examinations there are for kids. Finally, it is discussed what evaluation of the course should include. I have learned what types of different tests there are. This unit was really helpful in designing a syllabus for students. I really liked the idea of creating an end of course questionnaire! I found the same syllabus to be very useful and helped me understand how to write my own in the future. I also found it helpful going over how to assess students properly.
