Green Thumb - English Idioms

 

The idiom "green thumb" refers to the ability to grow plants well, for example: Whenever I buy a plant, it always dies shortly after. I really don't have a green thumb. Because my plants always die, I don't have the ability to grow plants well, hence, I don't have a green thumb.


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´s content is about raising awarenes of the needs different aged students have and what it means to be a good teacher. Also you learn about the different roles a teacher needs to fulfill and how to seperate language skills into different levels. This unit made me understand the role of a teacher more and raised awareness of how to become a good teacher yourself.This unit reviews different types of assessments, including what their purposes are and when they are delivered. I learned about various types of external exams that I had not heard of before, particularly the Cambridge exams, and developed a better sense of the types of objectives that students have for taking English classes and studying for one type of exam over another.
