    Re: difference between tendency and trend

    For example, my colleague has a tendency to talk too much in class, which isn't a trend in our profession. You see, we are oral English teachers, and she tends to use valuable class time to go on and on about this or that aspect of grammar--even off-topic subjects, like how trendy and up-to-date she is with what's new in music and fashion. "After all," she tells me, our students are in university and so if I want to reach them, I'll need to show them how with-it I am." Her monopolizing class time doesn't allow her students time to practice speaking English.

    Individuals tend to have tendencies. Trends mostly apply to people in general or groups.

    I AM NOT A TEACHER BUT HOPE THIS MIGHT HELP YOU .

    Trend :- Latest Fashion.
    Tendency:- the most probable thing which can happen...

    the Tendency :- If there is a tendency for something to happen, it is likely to happen or it often happens

    e.g.There is a tendency for unemployment to rise in the summer.
