This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
This unit specifically talked about present tenses in the English language. This includes: present simple, present continuous, present perfect, and present perfect continuous. It was a complex topic and, as mentioned in the unit, probably one of the most difficult to teach and learn. This is true for a number of reasons. There are numerous rules that must be followed when forming and using verbs, and then there are also no rules and no patterns in other areas of this topic. For example, the forms and uses of irregular past participles are something that must be memorized because there is no set pattern for all of them. However, apart from participles, each tense does have a basic component that makes it what it is at its base. For present simple, you must follow the rule of: subject then verb (and 'e' or 'es' if needed). For present continuous, you must add the auxiliary verb 'be' after the subject, plus the present participle '-ing'. Present perfect requires the auxiliary verb 'have' to be used, plus a past participle (often '-ed'). Present perfect continuous requires the use of 'have' and 'been' and the present participle '-ing'. The unit also mentioned ways in which to teach this complex subject and examples specifically for each tense.
