TEFL Videos - Lightening vs Lightning vs Lighting - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
The three words lightening, lightning and lighting are easily confused by English learners and even native speakers. Let's take a look at the differences. Lightening is the present participle of the verb to lighten describing the action of making something less heavy. A good example would be "I was lightening the load on my horse because it was exhausted." Lightning refers to a streak of static electricity through the sky usually accompanied by thunder, as here "I was struck by lightning while playing golf in a storm." Lighting is the arrangement of light especially in photography. A suitable example for this would be "The photo was dull because the lighting wasn't good enough".
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.
Review the definition of authentic and non-authentic materials, I understand that is good to have a support from a non authentic course book but use authentic material as magazines, newspapers etc, can bring to the students more motivation and fun to the classroom . The second part, the lesson plan was also good to remember , the task sheet exercise 4 was good example to how can I be more creative. It was a great unit. I found difficult to classify the resources in authentic and non authentic. With practice, I know I will learn the differences between them. I like the management section, in my opinion, it is essential to be able to manage the group in order to teach.
