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, I learned that English has 12 tenses for teaching purposes: three main tenses (present, past, and future) which each have four sub-tenses. This unit focused on the present tense and its four sub-tenses. Each sub-tense has certain forms based on if they are in the affirmative, negative or question form. The first two, the present simple and present continuous, were fairly simple in their form and usages. The latter two, the present perfect and present perfect continuous, are much more difficult, and are probably ones that students have the most trouble. As a native speaker, I know which forms to use based off of what feels or sounds right to me, but a non-native student needs rules in order to learn, and the explanation in the unit seems very complex. While reading the unit, I tried to see if maybe a timeline as a medium for explanation would be simpler for a student to understand, but aspects of language, especially tenses, don't fit into rules so easily. It was very useful to read about the common errors/mistakes that students tend to make, however, as it enables me to prepare strategies for how to deal with them when they come up.
