English Grammar -- Present Perfect Continuous -- Teaching Ideas 2 -- TEFL Certification The teaching idea covered here is one that would be particularly appropriate for more advanced English language learners, those who can use different tenses accurately. The activity is a board game that focuses on comparing and contrasting the tenses, focusing on the Present Perfect and the Present Perfect Continuous. Each student takes a turn at rolling the dice and moving around the board. For example a student could land on a square that says "Something you have been learning for a long time." An appropriate answer for the student could be "I have been learning English for a long time." The next student takes a turn and could land on a square that says "A beautiful place you have visited." This time the student could use the Present Perfect rather than the Present Perfect Continuous by answering "I have visited Paris." Students can be encouraged to ask follow up questions by using a variety of tenses and creating a conversation. A combined TEFL certification course may be appropriate for you.

This unit about past tense Ä° found it a bit difficult to remember all the forms and felt i needed to really take my time and write down as many notes on the subject as well as watching videos as i could , in order for the information to really sink in. Ä° hope my work has paid off also i feel i have a better understanding of the past tenses then i ever had.In this unit I have learnt about the different conditionals and the reported speech. It will definitely take some practice for the students to learn this difficult part of the English grammar. In my opinion, the usage of the right tense is the most difficult and confusing part for students but once it has been learnt it will be pretty easy to use the right form.
