This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
In this unit we are introduced to the four present tenses, simple, continuous, present perfect and present perfect continuous.
Although that sounds straightforward and simple enough this unit was somewhat challenging for me. I think partially due to my idea of grammar being a difficult subject, although it was not part of the lesson I think one of the most important things I learned from this unit was to not assume grammar is inherently confusing.
Simple tense is used for habits, permanent situations or facts, commentaries, present stories and historical sequences. It is formed through the structure of \"subject + base verb form + s/es.
Continuous tense is used to talk about an action that is in progress at the time of speaking, to describe developing situations, to talk about a temporary action that is not not necessarily happening at the time of talking. It is formed through the structure of subject + aux. verb \"be\" + verb + ing
Present perfect tense is used for talking about states that happened at an indefinite time, when we describe past actions with present results, when we talk about something in the past that is true now. It is formed through the structure of subject + aux. verb have + past participle.
Present perfect continuous is used to talk about an incomplete or ongoing activity, to describe a recently finished uninterrupted activity which has a present result.
It is formed through the structure of subject + have + been + verb+ing
