The Past Tenses - Past Perfect Continuous - Structure and Usages


This video is part of our series on the past tenses in English. In this video, we take a look at the past perfect continuous tense. This tense is used to talk about two actions in the past focusing on the fact that one of the two actions had been continuing at another point in the past.

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.

In this unit I learned how to create my cv and what information us important and what is not important. I learnes where to look for a job when I want to teach overseas and what websites to use and how use them. I also learned what do during an interview and ehat questions to ask.As I'm just starting my career as an English teacher, it's highly important for me to be prepared to face the most typical problems that can arise during a lesson. Unit 20 explains what kind of problem a teacher can face and suggests ways to solve these problems more effectively.This unit was definitely the most difficult unit in the course so far. I got to learn more about modal auxiliary verbs,phrasal verbs, relactive clauses and also passive voice. This unit made me understand English more. And I can't wait to share this information with the students.
