In vs At - English Grammar - Teaching Tips

 

This video covers the difference between 'in' and 'at' when used to indicate a location. They often cause confusion for English learners as they both refer to a location in a sentence. However, 'in', as a preposition of place, is usually used to talk about the position of someone or something inside large places such as countries, continents, big cities and similar, while 'at' is used to refer the position of someone or something inside small and unimportant places such as villages or small towns.


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 the different methods and techniques to managing classes, and it has been one of the most useful units so far. Although I understand and applied most if not all of the methods discussed in this unit to when I was teaching English in Beijing, it was useful in that it enumerated and explained the many reasons for using or not using such methods and techniques.This section covers different supplemental materials educators can use to help enhance course books. Course books are great templates for organizing work and lesson planning, but do not always necessarily cater to every demographic of student; each class is different. The section also distinguishes between created and authentic materials, each of which serve a specific purpose.
