Teflnet Site Of The Month ~ Difference Between
TEFL Site of the Month
September 2011 | TEFL.net
DifferenceBetween.net is a website full of short articles that you can use for reading practice in your English language classroom. Each article explores the difference between two similar subjects. Teachers may be interested in the articles in the Language category, such as the difference between “myth” and “legend” or the difference between an “idiom” and an “expression”. There are also plenty of topic-based readings that your students may enjoy reading about, such as the difference between “HTML” and “FBML” or the difference between “plantains” and “bananas”. These are not level based readings, but your students who are practising for TOEIC or TOEFL may find them useful because they are written in a similar format to test material they will find. Each reading is about 600 words in length and comes with a short summary. Before sharing a print out of a reading, ask your class the simple question: What’s the difference between … and …?
