The Past Tenses - Past Perfect - 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 tense. This tense is used to talk about a past action and a related past action before that. We relate two past actions to each other.

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 unit gives a lot of resources that a teacher can use in the classroom. It shows all the materials and technologies that are available and how to use them to improve your lessons. This unit also has a useful list of online resources and some of examples. All of them was good.After digesting all the information from the unit, I learnt the ways how to organize the seats in the classroom for more effective work and how to deal withe the behavioral problems of the students. I also noticed for myself some tips for using the voice and writing on the board.In this unit, I remembered the Presentation, Practice, Production as well as the Engage, Study, Activate lessons I came across with during my TEFL course. I also learned and confirm the advantages and disadvantages for teachers and students because I have experienced them myself.
