This video is part of our Lesson Planning series. In this episode, we are filling out the actual lesson procedure, explaining what activities are happening when in a lesson. This part also covers the study phase focusing on what the procedure during the lesson will be, as well as the timing and type of interactions used for this phase.

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 covered the past tenses. For each of the four tenses it covered forms, usages, common mistakes and sample activate stage teaching ideas. The task sheet helped clarify how to distinguish between tenses, including some present tenses that can be confusing to students. I learned how to clearly tell the difference between past simple and past participle forms.Teaching the past tense can be very difficult because it may be hard for ESL learners to distinguish when to use a past tense in particular. The past tense also has many irregular verbs and the past participle. As a teacher it would be very important to make clear the difference between the tenses and teach the regular, irregular and past participle verbs correctly.
