Bring vs Take - English Grammar - Teaching Tips


This video focuses on the difference between the usage of "bring" and "take". These two words often cause confusion, especailly for English learners. It is important to consider the direction in order to determine which word to use. The word "bring" describes the movement of something toward a specified location, such as in this sentence: Can you bring some snacks to the party tonight? The word "take" on the other hand generally describes the movement of something away from a location, such as here: Do you want to take any leftovers home? As you can see, it's quite easy to determine the correct word to use in a sentence when considering the direction you are referring to.

This unit had given me a lot of great tools to deal with students and to understand the different rules the teacher might need to take in the class. I really enjoyed learning about all the different teaching methods I would need to use in my teaching and also to get a good idea of the different advantages and disadvantages of teaching individuals as opposed to group teaching.This unit consisted of two videos of a lesson being taught poorly and well. In the first video, the teacher had a very poor attitude. He confused and intimidated the students, he assumed that they should know more than they did, and was generally ineffective. In the second lesson, the teacher was friendly, encouraging, and enthusiastic, which made for a very successful class.
