Unit number 6 describes form, usage, common mistakes and sample activate teaching ideas for past tenses, including past simple, past continuous, past perfect and past perfect continuous. In my opinion units about grammar (6,4) are lack of information. Particularly about how to teach grammar. There is nothing about study stage. It would be nice to add this information.The three tenses past, present and future combined with their four aspects of simple, continuous, perfect an perfect continuous present both a challenge to the students and the instructor. The unit makes clear that even students at the intermediate level and above with a firm grasp of vocabulary may have moderate to severe difficulties with proper conjugation of sentences.
