TEFL Videos - May vs Might - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
Even though many people use "may" and "might" interchangeably, they actually have slightly different meanings. The word "may", for example refers to a possibility, while "might" conveys slightly more uncertainty. In the example "There are dark clouds in the sky. It may rain later", we use "may" because the dark clouds suggest the possibility of rain. The sentence "I'm sick but I might come to the party" uses "might" because it is not certain the person will go to the party. This means, you should use 'may' when there is some kind of a sign that predicts or indicates future happenings. You should use 'might' when expressing something a little more unlikely or uncertain.
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 on course development provided information on how to design a course syllabus depending on a variety of factors, how to test students and how to conduct a course evaluation at the end of the course. I found this information to be very useful as each scenario could be different when starting a new job. It's possible that a structured course syllabus will be provided while it is also possible that no direction will be provided. I feel confident that with these resources I will be able to create a course syllabus appropriate to the class that I will be teaching. This unit was more challenging that the first two, and I enjoyed it. There are so many scale systems for English proficiency that it's a bit overwhelming to look at. In particular, when I read through the wiki page for Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. To me the most valuable material though was everything else. Syllabus and course planning to evaluation tests for the student progress as well as the course itself. I liked how everything was broken down and presented. It was a good introduction of the material.
