Tests are classified according to the stage of the course: replacement tests, diagnostic tests, progress tests and practice tests. Finally, it discusses the external examinations: general English ( KET, PET, FCE,CAE,CPE), skills of life (ESOL), business English(This lecture focused on the present tenses such as Present Simple, Present Continuous, Present Perfect and Present Perfect Continuous.
