I know all these tense forms because I was studying them many years ago. But I have read the whole unit and have revised the information. I liked some teaching ideas suggested in this course. Most of all I like the game â€œChange the roomâ€ for practicing the Present Perfect Tense. I will try to play this game with my student when we study this tense.This unit, plus the accompanying video, helped me better understand the receptive skills of reading and listening. The tips for teaching language, such as pre-teaching vocabulary and selecting authentic and non-authentic texts, were very helpful. The tasks sheet with the sample material in the unit provided good exercises for creating effective lesson plans.
