While it is the most basic form of verbs usage, the present tense did pose some problems to me. Not in the way that I would use them, but in the way that I actually have to name the proper tense to my students when teaching. Very informative on that point since all of those matters are very far in my memory. However, what I found most useful are the commonly made mistakes which I would not have foreseen, although,once I read them they seemed to be blatant. Grammar is fundamental to all languages and it felt refreshing to see it exposed as simple as it can be in this lesson.
