English Grammar -- Present Perfect -- Usage --

 

http://www.teflonline.net We have seen that the key word that helps us to remember the Present Perfect tense is forms of the word 'have' plus the past participle form of the verb. This ITTT video looks at the three main usages of the Present Perfect. First usage: To talk about indefinite past actions. I have been to Italy twice. / I have eaten snake. Second usage: To talk about unfinished past actions I have lived here for three years. / She has been a teacher since 2010. Third usage: To talk about past actions with present results. I have lost my keys. / I have left my computer in the office. When teaching the Present Perfect tense or any other grammar point it is always important to look for patterns and make it as clear as possible for your students. The courses at ITTT assume no prior knowledge of English grammar terms. Courses introduce the concepts, terms and structures in ways that will help build your own understanding as well as equipping you with the skills and confidence needed to teach your English language learners.

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.

This unit gave me a good understanding of the tools and techniques teachers use in order to structure a sound and effective syllabus, including the initial meeting, needs analysis and various tests that determine the student placement and course content. We also looked at end of the course assessments and examinations that students can take, as well as course evaluations.This unit is great and concise! It is very important to understand how to bring in new vocabulary to a student's vernacular and it extremely useful to see it clearly spelled out the different functions and steps of doing so. The Engage/Study/Activate models of teaching seem to provide a large variety of techniques to assist the ease of learning and teaching a new language.
