This unit which is about past tenses and their usages was helpful for me to broaden my grammatical knowledge. The teaching techniques described here will be instrumental in delivering the usual 'boring' grammar lessons in an attractive way. I now fluently understand the different situations/scenarios which can be expressed via past tense in English language.There are many things to consider when teaching a variety of students and it is interesting to read about what to do for business English students - like the needs based test. I think it is very true that multi-lingual classes are good for English learning as the only common ground the students have is English, therefore making them speak it to make friends.
