English Grammar - Past Perfect Continuous - Teaching Ideas - TESL In this TESL training video the teaching idea for the past perfect continuous tense involves giving the students a prompt and asking them to finish it with a sensible answer in the past perfect continuous tense. For example: I didn't have dinner last night... because I had been snacking all day. She passed the test... because she had been studying hard. The past perfect continuous is a rarely used tense and is often quit confusing for learners of English as well as new English teachers. Taking a 120-hour online teaching course with ITTT will give the knowledge needed to make sure you know how to explain such tenses to students the moment you step into your first TESL classroom. /// -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Are you ready to Teach English Abroad? -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Good Afternoon. This is a very helpful unit. Not only is it helpful in choosing the correct vocabulary it also aids the teacher in how to present the material. I also like how it ties in to unit three teaching modalities. I found this very useful as a refresher. It demonstrated the use of aids and also some classroom activities to engage the students. Thank YouI didn't know there were so many different test. You have placement tests and diagnostic tests which are different but very similar. You have External exams and practice test which usually go hand and hand. And let us not forget the progress test. Among the External exams and certifications for English proficiency there is a plethora of many to choose from.
