The Past Tenses - Past Simple - Teaching Ideas

 

This video is part of our series on the past tenses in English. We start off the series with the past simple tense. In this video, we focus on useful teaching ideas for this tense. A great idea to practice this tense is a picture story. Here, the teacher provides the students with various photos or images and the students are asked to piece them together to make a story in the past.


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.

How lessons are taught is yet another pillar of teaching. There's a fine balance between using supporting materials and relying on them. Each lessons need to be adapted to students in class. Students are all different and learn differently. It is a major skill for a teacher to develop and be able to get the necessary knowledge across to students in the most relevant manner.I learned about the part of speech in this unit, and through various examples, I can see various uses. Nouns(people,animals, plasces, things, qualities, states and Adjectives, Aricles, Verbs(example of Trabsitice verbs, Intransitive verbs)The Verb chart can be used as a good resource for teaching. I learned to use it for adverbs, pronouns, and prepositions, conjunctions on.
