English Grammar -- Present Tenses --Overview -- Pay for English Teachers


While the Present Tenses are each covered individually in other ITTT videos this particular video reviews the four Present Tenses together. Looking at the tenses together helps to clarify and compare the different usages and structures. The video also highlights some of the problems that students may experience when learning and using the Present tenses. For example, in the Present Simple the use of the third person singular and the formation of the question form -- these can be problematic for students. In the Present Perfect, the Past Participle and irregular verbs can often be confusing for students. In the Present Perfect Continuous, the use of non-action verbs needs clarification.

I have learned about the five different levels of English: Starter, Elementary, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate, and Upper-Intermediate. When designing a syllabus there may be some limiting factors: your employee, materials available, time constraints, and students. There are different types of tests: Diagnostic, Proficiency, Aptitude, Achievement, Progress, and Placement.This part of the unit really supplemented the rest of the chapter really well. I liked how we learned about listening and reading the previous chapter and now we are learning about writing and speaking. I like the parts at the end of the lesson when we have to order the materials and split them up by the different stages. It really helps me visualize the different stages.
