The Past Tenses - Past Simple - Structure


This video is part of our series on the past tenses in English. We start off the series with the past simple tense. This tense is used to express completed actions in the past. In this video, we focus on the structure of the past simple.

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 as far as the ESA in my opinion is set up a little better than the previous unit. The wording is quite a bit more clear so completing it was easier. I find living in a foreign country often it is much more important to learn the verbal part rather than the written part.This unit showed me the roles of the teacher in the classroom, the specificsod diffrent student. It also reminded me classical metods of language teaching to students. Remind meabout the basic skills in the foreign language teaching-learning process and about the ESA methodology.Monitoring and evaluation is something I want to learn more about; it was great to see a breakdown of the different types of tests and forms of evaluation a teacher can use throughout the course. I also learned a lot about the kinds of external exams offered by various companies.
