This unit covered the past tenses (past simple, past continuous, past perfect, and past perfect continuous). I enjoyed this unit because it was similar (in structure) to the unit on present tenses. I was happy to find so many similarities between the past and present tense formations and usages because those similarities make it easier for me to remember them well.Very interesting Unit and very much needed in the English Language. I find it somewhat confusing and will continue to revise it until I am able to present it to a class as accurately as possible . I believe it will be confusing for students but we will conquer it together as a team. I will, however, revise a lot more before presenting it to a full room of students.
