TESOL Videos - TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 6
In this instalment of Chantelleâ€™s TEFL course video diary she talks about the sixth unit. Unit 6 covers the past tenses; past simple, past continuous, past perfect and past perfect continuous. As with Unit 4, this unit describes the structure and common usages of the tenses as well pointing out common mistakes and providing teaching ideas that can be used in the classroom. Although not her favourite unit, Chantelle thought it was well laid out with good test questions and support.
This is what one of our TEFL graduates feels he has gained from the course, or a part of it, and how he plans to put into action what he has learned.
This unit covered the four different types of past tense verbs, past simple, past perfect, past continuous, and past perfect continuous, and sentence structure in their affirmative, negative and question forms. From the usages and examples given for each type I was able to clearly understand how they are classified and can use and identify the correct type of past tense verb in a sentence. The mistakes commonly made by students, and suggestions for activities to practise the grammar in class, equipped me to be able to explain each type in detail and help students understand any part they might struggle with.
