English Grammar - Future Perfect Continuous - Usage - Teach English as a Second Language


This video explains the usage of the future perfect continuous tense. This tense is used to talk about how long an action/event will have been going on by a certain time in the future. Although the future perfect continuous is rarely used in everyday English, if you are looking to teach English as a second language, you will need to be knowledgeable on even rare grammar points such as this. So if you are considering entering the world of English teaching the best way to equip yourself with the necessary skills is to take a comprehensive TEFL course and ITTT's online TEFL courses give you a good foundation in the areas of English grammar that you are most likely to encounter when you first set out to teach English as a second language. More information can be found about the courses we offer at the link above.

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.

Firstly, this unit really drove home some of the difficulties of the English language that seem natural to me as a native speaker. I really had to think about the answers to the questions and how I would explain them to students. I will definitely have to go back through and review this unit in the future in order to adequately teach lessons about these forms to students.Some hugely useful materials contained within this unit, as well as excellent information regarding the best ways to use and adapt course book material to suit the needs of the students. I haven't used any course books yet, but we will be using them for 'Nachhilfe' sessions (after school help, essentially) and so this information and clarification will come in very handy.
