Overview of All English Tenses - Present Tenses - Present Perfect - Irregular Verbs


As mentioned earlier, to form this tense, we have to use a special form of the verb. Technically it's called the past participle form with irregular verbs. Of course these past participle forms change quite a bit from its base form of the verb. Here are a few examples 'go' moves to 'gone', 'be' moves to 'been', 'write' to 'written', 'speak' to 'spoken' and 'read'. Although very confusing for the non-native speaker, doesn't change its spelling, but does change its pronunciation, resulting in 'read' going to 'read'.

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.

There is very much information in this unit. The ESA structure, as well as its variances, is something I encountered when I was being taught another language, so it is easy to remember different styles of teachers and what activities seemed to really work. There are many really helpful recommendations for activities that I think many teachers and students would find engaging.This unit dealt with the different types of testing and the purposes of placement, diagnostic, progress and external testing. It also detailed the main external exams that a teacher may encounter in this field and the industry. I learned that Cambridge external exams have been developed for immigrants to learn life skills and to assimilate linguistically into British society.
