Overdo vs Overdue - English Grammar - Teaching Tips

 

This video covers the difference between 'overdo' and 'overdue'. As these two words have a similar pronunciation and spelling, their usage is often confused. 'Overdue' describes something that is past a due date or past a scheduled time, for example: I need to pay all my overdue bills to avoid a late fee. 'Overdo', on the other hand, is used when speaking about doing something to an excessive degree, for example: Don't overdo the salt in this recipe or it will taste bad.


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 section covers productions skills of writing and speaking, and provides example activities. The content is basic but allows for students to gain interest in learning more in the process. Again, the engage, study, and activate phases are essential for these type of class sessions. I learned that good penmanship is important for motivating students thus should be practiced.Being able to apply the techniques of the ESA structure to teaching vocabulary and sentence structure made it much easier to understand. This unit showed the example not what to focus on and not focus on in each stage and/or phase of the structures. These techniques for teaching a new language will be most useful when running a lesson plan and helping with the classes progress.
