Overview of All English Tenses - Present Tenses - Present Continuous - Miming


This video is part of our series on the English tenses. In this episode, we cover the present continuous tense and cover a variety of interactive teaching ideas you can use in your classroom. The present continuous is used to talk about actions in progress at the time of speaking or around the time of speaking.

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 focuses on giving us the tools to properly teach pronunciation in a classroom. It covers general rules about intonation and stress and also comprehensively covers the phonemic alphabet, which I think it a very useful and underused tool to help teaching pronunciation. As a linguistics major there was nothing new to me in tis unit but it was a nice reminder.After completing the theory and test of the unit 12 I refreshed some activities to practice speaking and writing. Thanks to examples of planning a lesson I learnt how to follow the logical order to warm the students' interest for studying new material. Moreover, games is a good source to be used. Still i am a bit confused with the order in Study and Activate stages.
