English Grammar -- 'Going to' future tense -- Online TEFL Course

 

http://www.teflcourse.net The 'going to' future tense is used to make predictions based on evidence and to talk about plans and intentions. This online TEFL course video discusses two teaching ideas that can be used with the 'going to' future tense. The first idea encourages students to make predictions based on evidence with a weather forecasting activity. The students are given information about the weather in a particular country and give weather forecasts for the following week or month: On Monday it's going to rain in the morning but then it's going to be sunny for the rest of the day. In the second teaching idea students discuss plans for an upcoming birthday party/holiday: We're going to eat at a fancy restaurant. I'm going to have a massive birthday cake. I'm going to sunbathe the whole time. We're going to visit the old temples. Being able to think of engaging teaching ideas for your TEFL classes is an important part of being an English teacher.
