TESOL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Leslie
Leslie is a Canadian English teacher at a junior high school in the Japanese countryside. In this TESOL review, Leslie tells us she is looking to open her own English language day care centre at her home and with this in mind she took the 120-hour certificate course with ITTT as well as the 50-hour young learners course to bring her qualifications up to date. Hopefully for Leslie this will be the first step on a rewarding career as the owner of a successful English language school in Japan.
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 was a review of past tense, including past simple, past perfect, past continuous, and past perfect continuous. Although these are all fairly straightforward after having covered the present tenses, it might be confusing for students to distinguish between the different forms and remember which to use when. The auxiliary verbs (had, had been, and was/were) add an additional level of confusion, as well as the past simple irregulars, which must be memorized as there is no rule to determine these. A good way to practice the different past tenses is through story-telling, as this is usually done in past tense.
