The Past Tenses - Past Perfect - Teaching Ideas


This video is part of our series on the past tenses in English. In this video, we take a look at the past perfect tense and suitable teaching ideas for this tense. We'll ask our students to describe what a person in a picture had just done before the photo was taken.

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.

I learned how to carefully choose course book lessons based on the English level of students. I also learned that if a certain subject in the course book is not relevant to the level I am teaching, I have the freedom to alter it in order to make it more engaging for the students.This was again a useful unit, but I preferred to have a video about this unit to repeat the informations given. Anyway, there were lots of links about TEFL websites, some resources and some learning websites for my record. I appreciated it thank you so much. That's all I can say.This unit went over Past tenses.They are kind of tricky but the way it is explained in the unit made it fairly easy to comprehend. The unit gives you everything from usages of a specific past tense,common errors people make,as well as thought out activate stage ideas. Great unit!
