The difference between present simple and continuous tenses I have already created two posts on the difference between the present simple and continuous tenses. There are Present simple or present continuous tense – improved and Present simple and continuous tenses posts. Both of them are good but as I have come up with a new idea, I want to share it with you in this post. This post concentrates on the difference between the tenses. In this post there are just two activities: a worksheet and an interactive quiz. Present simple and continuous tense – worksheet Hand out the following worksheet (students have to work in pairs; one will need worksheet A and the other worksheet B) and ask the students not to show their picture to their partner. In exercise 2 they should complete the sentences with the correct names. When they finish, it is time to explain the difference between the tenses. In exercise 4, students should take the picture and speak about it for 60 seconds without stopping or hesitating. Present simple and continuous tense – worksheet

Kitchen tools and equipment ( Học từ=hình ảnh ) It is very popular to teach vocabulary in lexical sets. It is easier to explain the meaning and you can present quite a few items at one time.

English Grammar Pill: How to use the present perfect tenses correctly In my last Grammar Pill post, I wrote about the English past tenses and hopefully gave you an idea of how to use the tenses correctly. The post is so far my most successful article having been viewed over 40,000 times and shared over 10,000 times on Facebook!! Thank you for sharing my post. I hadn’t appreciated how popular English tenses were with learners and teachers. In this post, as promised I want to cover the present perfect tenses and show you how to use them correctly. Let me remind you of the wonderful mind map my fellow teacher, Gordana Popovic created showing the past tenses. Mind Map by Gordana Popovic Structure The present perfect is formed with the present simple of the auxiliary verb “have” and the past participle. Positive Sentence: I/you/we/they have (‘ve) goneHe/she/it has (‘s) gone Negative Sentence: I/you/we/they have not (haven’t) goneHe/she/it has not (hasn’t) gone Questions and short answers: Have they gone? Uses “Have you seen that film yet?” PAST SIMPLE or PRESENT PERFECT?

plus.google Adapting games – Truth be told with second conditionals Truth be told is a game that encourages players to be creative. It’s similar to games like Dixit, Absolute Boulderdash and Pictionary which create a context for players to be interesting and entertaining. We can adapt these games by slightly changing the focus and introducing a language structure. Update: The handout has been updated to include first, second and third conditionals and can be downloaded here for Powerpoint or here as a PDF. This is a simple game that can be used with a wide variety of language. Instructions Each group is given a set of cards and a stack of small sheets of paper. “If I were friends with the president, …” The first time you play you should elicit that the next part will start with “I would…” The other players should think about what the first player’s answer will be. “If I were friends with the president, I would get a comfortable government job.” “If I were friends with the president, I would tell him to resign.” Further adaptation
Engelsk grammatik & ordkunskap I sommar har jag samlat på citat på engelska, en hel del citat. Jag har börjat använda mig av en kurateringstjänst som heter Pinterest och där ligger alla citaten. Om du vill använda dig av dem hittar du anslagstavlan här Engelska Citat. Jag tänker mig att jag väljer ut ett varje vecka, sätter upp det i klassrummet på något sätt, i en ram kanske, och så får eleverna arbeta med det i grupp så här: Vad är flippad undervisning? Det är ett förhållningssätt som man har som pedagog. Jag flippar inte, men jag tilltalas av många av de filmer som läggs ut. Sara Bruun är en av föregångarna inom flippad engelska och hon bygger just nu upp en länksamling kring gramatik moment. EngVid har också lektioner att ta del av här och på deras youtube-kanal och några andra som jag stött på här och här en wikispaces. Många flippar i Screencast-o-matic och Sara har gjort sina grammatikfilmer i PowToon om du är sugen på att böjra flippa själv. Igår gjorde jag två affischer för strategier inom ord.
Multi-word verbs: Methods and approaches In this second article I'll look at a range of approaches and methods that I have used to try to help my students with them. Categorising Focus on lexical verb Lexical sets Teaching through texts One way of using texts in the classroom Conclusion Categorising Traditional approaches to the teaching of multi-word verbs focus on the explicit study of the item. Many ELT coursebooks and grammars classify them into four distinct types, depending on whether they are intransitive or transitive, i.e. verbs that don't take an object and verbs that do, or if the verb and particle can be separated or not. I have used this method in the past, and have occasionally found students, usually analytical learners, who have benefited from such an approach. Focus on lexical verb Another approach is to group them according to the lexical verb; run into run over run off run away run through Example: "I ________ Simon in the cinema last night." take off do up speed up touch down etc.
Getting to Know Gerunds and Infinitives Everyday Grammar: Gerunds and Infinitives Welcome to another episode of Everyday Grammar on VOA Learning English. English learners have difficulty with gerunds and infinitives. A gerund is the –ing form of a verb that functions the same as a noun. For example, “Running is fun.” In this sentence, “running” is the gerund. The infinitive form of a verb appears either as the basic form (with no marking) or with the word “to.” It is difficult for English learners to know whether to use a gerund or an infinitive after a verb. Here’s an example. Sentence One: I suggested going to dinner. Sentence Two: I suggested to go to dinner. Sentence One, with the gerund, is correct. Let’s take the word “like.” Are you confused yet? Basically, some verbs are followed by gerunds, some verbs are followed by infinitives, and some verbs can be followed by gerunds or infinitives. Here are a few tips. Tip Number 1: you almost always find a gerund after a preposition. Let’s see how much you know. I’m Jonathan Evans.
