English Grammar - Past Simple - Teaching Ideas 2 - Teaching English Second Language


Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

This is another very technical section that is going to take me some time studying in order to get all four past tense types organized in my mind. I would imagine that teaching the students this work would involve a lot of work sheets and more individual student time for them to understand the concepts.In this unit, I learned the rules to forming verbs in the past tense. As with any other tense, there are also irregular verbs in the past tense that can't be taught but need to be memorized. This unit seemed fairly simple and short but it has also shown me how much more I need to brush up on my grammar.
