Can someone tell me the difference between the verbs to strike and to hit
I have teaching practise in a few days so I will be grateful if you can give me some ideas on this.
And if anyone knows the best way to teach to Strike to students.
Shall I use pictures, which examples etc
The words are basically synonyms. Except in baseball where a strike is the opposite of a hit.
And, of course, "to strike" can mean "to refuse to work" for some reason, usually to get something you want or to show your opposition to something that has happened, is happening or is going to happen.
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
However, I would still argue that "a strike" is not the opposite of "a hit" if for no other reason than the umpire may call either "a strike" or (in my opinion, the opposite) "a ball" without the batter swinging his/her bat.
