English Grammar -- Present Perfect Continuous -- Teaching Ideas -- TEFL Courses

 

http://www.teflonline.net Being able to use the correct tense when communicating with others is essential. We often use more than one tense when talking to others so it is important that our students have the confidence to be able to know which tense to use in any given situation. For the teaching idea in this video a card game is used to give students the opportunity to ask questions and give answers using more than one tense, in particular reinforcing the Present Perfect Continuous tense. The activity requires the students to work in pairs, taking it in turns to ask a question and give a correct answer. Each card will have a result and a reason, and one student will be required to form the correct question and the other student the correct answer. ITTT offers a variety of TEFL courses.

Yaaaay the final unit haha!! In all fairness I did rush this course so I can prioritise work as I work full time and I'm finishing my degree part time. This whole course has been great and in particular the grammar and management units such as this one. Tonnes of insightfully helpful stuff which will be efficacious to my TEFL & TESOL experience from here on in!!The four present tenses i.e. the present simple, present continuous, present perfect and perfect continuous are all very vital in learning and teaching English as a second language to non native speakers. although students can make some errors the teacher should formulate correction strategies and encourage communicative use during activate stage of a lesson.
