    Default CELTA - How would you try to explain this to a ESOL

    1.) How would you try to get across the meaning of the phrase “Would you like………”
    (as in “Would you like a coffee?”) to a group of beginners?

    Please note – they do not want to know what this bit of language means, rather how one would teach it to this level. They need answer's in detail.


    2.) How would you explain the difference in meaning of these two to a foreigner

    a.) win vs beat


    3.) How would you explain the difference in meaning to a foreigner between these two sentences?

    He’s been to Hawaii
    He’s gone to Hawaii

    I hope ESOL is the right term for ESL learner. It stands for English Speaker of Other Languages, like as in TESOL.

    Samer, we have explained why we cannot help with your pre-CELTA assignment. Please don't start posting your questions individually in an attempt to get round this.
