TEFL Videos - Lose vs Loose - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
This video covers the difference between 'lose' and 'loose'. As these two words have a similar pronunciation and spelling, their usage is often confused. 'Lose' spelled with one 'o' is a verb and means to fail to keep, to fail to win or to fail to make money. Such as in these three examples for each meaning: 1) To fail to keep: I will lose weight but also my hair. 2) To fail to win: I'm expected to lose this game. 3) To fail to make money: I will lose a fortune. The word 'loose' spelled with double 'o', on the other hand is not a verb but an adjective. It means not tight, or free from constraint. A suitable example sentence for the word 'loose' would be: 'These trousers are loose.' We hope this explanation helped you and next time you'll know exactly which word to use.
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 covers level testing, need analysis, limiting factors in teaching ,syllabus design , assesment of students, examinations and course evaluation. It was a little bit difficult to apply assessment of students to the real students . This course materials , I think, a little bit wants more contents. Anyway this unit helps me a lot. For the older students,the negotiation would take the form of a class discussion and should focus on the areas of learning that the students feel would be most useful to them as a group.By this stage you should have already worked out a preliminary syllabus and you can direct the discussion to show how their needs are being addressed.
