This unit was about the four forms of the past tense; past simple, past perfect, past continuous, and past perfect continuous. It is very similar to the four forms of the present tense. I found it interesting to learn about the past perfect which is \"the past in the past\". There are many layers of time in the English language that affect the tense we speak in.This lesson was actually quite difficult. I feel like the present tense will be difficult for new English speakers to master. The addition of irregular verbs and (continuous + perfect) confused me. However, I felt that this particular unit did a decent job of providing examples of every sentence type. Overall, it was a solid lesson despite the difficulty level.
