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 outlined the past tenses of verbs. The first is ?past simple.? In this tense, the base form of the verb is changed to create an affirmative sentence. For a negative sentence, the addition of ?did not? or ?didn?t? is needed. An example of a regular verb changing from present to past simple is ?walk? becoming ?walked.? There are numerous irregular verbs, however, that may be challenging for students. Some examples of irregular verbs include ?see? to ?saw;? ?fight? to ?fought,? and ?put? which remains ?put.? The second tense is ?past continuous.? This form is created by using was/were plus a verb ending in ?ing.? For example, ?The wind was howling.? The third tense is ?past perfect.? This form is created with the helper ?had? (or ?had not?) plus the past participle. For example, ?The cat had jumped when it saw the mouse.? The fourth and final tense reviewed in this unit is ?past perfect continuous.? This form is created using ?had been? (or ?had not been?) plus the verb ending in ?ing.? For example, ?I had been sleeping when you called.? As with teaching present tenses, there are various guided activities that can be utilized when wanting students to focus on one specific tense at a time. Students will come to learn which tense is appropriate as they become more attuned to context clues of time of the action and whether the action has been completed or is ongoing.
