TEFL Videos - English Grammar -- Present Simple -- Teaching Ideas 3 -- TEFL Course
This is what one of our TEFL graduates feels he has gained from the course, or a part of it, and how he plans to put into action what he has learned.
I think this unit has shown me how difficult it can be to explain when to use each of the four past tenses. Use of each past tense depends on a certain timeline of when an action started, finished or continued. This unit makes me wonder if the use of diagrams and timelines to explain the different situations in which the different tenses are used would be the most helpful for students. I assume that a teacher would not introduce some of these tenses (specifically past perfect and past perfect continuous) until students are quite advanced and comfortable with more simple grammatical constructions.
