This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
Unit 6 is about past tenses. Just like the present tense it also has 4 forms which is the past simple, past perfect, past continuous and past perfect continuous. The past tense relates to past actions. One has to take into consideration the irregular verbs when using the past tenses, as many common verbs in the English have an irregular simple past form. The first form is the past simple which is used for a past action when the time is given, when the time is asked, when the action took place at a definite time. The past continuous uses was/were+verb-ing. It is used for interrupted past actions, to indicate gradual development that took place in the past, to express an action which began before that time and probably still continues. The past perfect uses had+past participle. It is used to express actions that occurred before other actions in the past. The past perfect continuous uses the form: had been+verb-ing. It is used to express actions in the past that had been going on continuously up to the past moment.
This chapter gave me a review of the past tense. It is easy to understand as I have understood the lesson on the present tense. The forms used for every tense is similar to the present tense. The teacher just have to bear in the mind the different uses for each of the past tense forms.
