English Grammar - Past Continuous - Teaching Ideas 2 - TEFL


Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

During Unit 6, I learned about past tenses. More specifically, I learned that the system of present tenses is similar to that of past tenses. All continuous tense forms feature the verb \"to be\" + verb[-ing]. All perfect forms feature the verb \"to have\" + past participle form of verb ([-ed]/[-en]). All perfect continuous forms feature the verb \"to have\" + \"been\" + verb[-ing].In this unit I have learned that the words are classified according to its purpose and the meaning it adds. Knowing the parts of speech and how to construct them correctly will make teaching the language more effective. Understanding the rules of each part of speech also make it easier to provide example conversations and how to explain phrases that learners can follow confidently.
