English Grammar - Past Perfect Continuous - Teaching Ideas - TESL


In this TESL training video the teaching idea for the past perfect continuous tense involves giving the students a prompt and asking them to finish it with a sensible answer in the past perfect continuous tense. For example: I didn't have dinner last night... because I had been snacking all day. She passed the test... because she had been studying hard. The past perfect continuous is a rarely used tense and is often quit confusing for learners of English as well as new English teachers. Taking a 120-hour online teaching course with ITTT will give the knowledge needed to make sure you know how to explain such tenses to students the moment you step into your first TESL classroom.

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.

The unit provides a wide and detailed observation (with some really essential details of usage and options) of vocabulry teaching hints and techniques. Sometimes it might be called the most important aspect of a language (because the language commonly consists of words and collocations. The set of methods is simple and useful (they even work and are really user-friendly).I am happy to have finally finished the multiple choice section of this course, and am eager to complete my first lesson plan. This unit once again taught about the importance of knowing your students, and how to deal with the various students that are available to teach. I am eager to officially start working as an English Teacher to students speaking a foreign language.
