English Grammar - Future Perfect Continuous - Teaching Ideas - Teach English Overseas

 

The future perfect continuous is not used a lot in everyday English usage. However, it does come up in when your EFL students get more advanced and if you plan to teach English overseas it is important to have an understanding of the less frequently used tenses. As the future perfect continuous is not often used it can be a struggle to think up teaching ideas for it. The trainer in this video shows us one idea that can be used for the tense. For this activity the students conduct a survey to find out how long someone will have been doing something by a certain point in the future. For example: Student A: How long will you have been learning English by the end of next month? Student B: I will have been learning English for three years.

The challenges teachers might encounter include: establishing rapport with new students; large groups; groups of mixed levels; reluctant students; students who tend to use their native language at the lesson; students having trouble understanding listening tasks etc.The content of this lesson consisted of information regarding teacher and learner characteristics. Aspects of effective teaching and the different roles the teacher may portray in the classroom were explored. Unit One also discussed basic qualities of \"good\" learners and how the age of the student will contribute to varying degrees of motivation, language experience, and behavior.
