English Grammar -- Present Perfect -- Structure 2 --

 


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.

This unit made me reflect on how natural these parts of speech have become to me as a native speaker, at least so far in their usage. It is much more difficult to explain the "why" of grammar and that will be an ongoing learning experience. Additionally, I was struck by the long lists of words and tenses that must simply be memorized as I've never really considered that about the English language. I imagine it is even more difficult to learn when there is no logic being a certain tense or usage and working though potential frustration among learners will become important.
