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 was a great review and breakdown of the present tense. It was organized really well, and I think the way the unit was set up translates to teaching the present tense. We start with present simple, then present continuous, perfect, and perfect continuous. Present simple is used to describe habitual actions, facts, headlines, historical events/timelines, etc. Present continuous is used to describe ongoing actions, frequent actions, developing situations, etc. Present perfect is used to relate the past and present, describe actions at an indefinite time, and describe general experience. This is different from the present perfect continuous, which also relates past and present, but refers to an action that has happened and is likely to continue happening or an action that has recently ended and has a present consequence. Reviewing the specifics of these aspects of the present tense, I can see how learners can get confused. I think it will be essential to teach the aspects of the present tense in this order and make sure that students understand each aspect fully before moving on to the next.
