ALE will be starting a workshop in October to learn and review past tenses. The workshop will be held on Monday evenings for 4 weeks. If you are interested in joining us, please contact us at AnkaraLegalEnglish@gmail.com.
Focus will be on:
- Past Simple: I looked
- Past Continuous: I was looking
- Past Perfect: I had looked
- Past Perfect Continuous: I had been looking
Lessons will include conversation, readings, videos, handouts and writing practice.
Here is a great overview of the English past tenses of verbs from TEFL & TESOL Courses – ITTT on YouTube:
While preparing for a lesson today, I came across a fun website. Do you know the Jeopardy TV game show? This site lets you set up your own Jeopardy game with as many as four teams. Give it a try:
You should spend a few minutes clicking through other parts of the website. ESLGamesPlus.com has a lot of fun ways to learn and practice English for KIDS of ALL AGES!
Usually, I try not to translate when teaching English. I believe one learns a language faster when a lesson is completely (or almost completely) taught in the target language.
However, recently, I used two of my favorite books, 501 English Verbs and 201 Turkish Verbs, together for a lesson. It was like watching a light bulb go on! I highly recommend these books when teaching or studying the conjugation of verbs.
