English Grammar - Past Continuous - Teaching Ideas 3 -- Online TEFL Course The teaching idea in this video is for the past continuous involves students miming an action; however, unlike the mime activity for the present continuous students will not be doing the mimes for others to see. Instead they will stop the mime before the other students open their eyes. The students will then have to say what their classmates were doing before they stopped. For example: You were driving a car. You were eating a sandwich. Being able to come up with interesting teaching ideas for what students often see as boring grammar points is an important skill for any English teacher. Taking an online TEFL course with ITTT will give you an understanding of the grammar points that you need to teach when starting out as a new teacher of English and will also give you some great ideas on how to teach them.

For some reason I am having a hard time getting this information in my hea.
I went over the lesson a couple of time.
I understand the grammar of it, just not the terms to explain i.
I thought the lesson outlined it well and I think I may have a slightly better gras.
These videos were great for me to understand the difference between a good teacher attitudes,mimes and gestures - bad teacher attitudes, mimes and gestures that effect the lesson flow and students response very muc.
So thank you very much for this much effective clas.
I have learnt a lot about the usage of past tense in this uni.
Besides, the task sheet from this unit has made me realize I have to know how to explain the difference, in both structure and usage, between the tense.
The task sheet has certainly stimulated my thought.
