Look vs See vs Watch - English Grammar - Teaching Tips


In this video Linda breaks down the difference between "look", "see" and "watch". The differences surrounding these three words can be quite difficult to understand for non-native English learners. However, this video looks at the three words in detail breaking down exactly how to differentiate between them.

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.

I would like to share some teaching ideas. a) Future simple Going to the vegetable market , what will you buy? Students will play a game in pairs where they start the sentence, I will go to the vegetable market and I will shop for??.. they will take it in turns to and repeat their partners purchase until they are ten items on the list. b) Future continuous What will you be doing? Students will be given a series of dates or an answer to a date related question. They will be encouraged to circulate around the room asking their specific question to find a suitable answer. ( Some answers will be in the negative to make it more challenging)Once all the students have found a partner where the answer makes sense to the question, each pair will share with the whole group. c) Future perfect Plans for my future. The teacher will explain to the students that they are to work in pairs and to tell each other what they will have achieved by the year 2015. They must each plan to think of ten things that each will have achieved in that time frame using the future perfect tense. this can culminate in each student sharing one idea with the group. d) Future perfect continuous How long have you game? The teacher will pose questions to the students beginning each with, \"How long will you have been?? by the summer of 2012? Students will respond in the future perfect continuous tense. Based on the teacher prompts such as working, living in your house, studying, students will work in pairs to from a series of sentences in this tense to share with the group. e) ?Going to? future What's in the bag? The teacher will have a bag in which will be several pictures ( or real objects ). She will hold up the objects and asks the students , \" What am I going to do?\"§1482646546 4538227§73492§1118§"Future tense system is very complexed.It says a lot about decisions ,predictions of actions that take place in the future.It seems very simple and natural using future tenses while speaking but hard when you get down to writing or explaining the tense form.the form change in situations,positive,negative,affirmative situations.
