Writing activity present perfect tense
Present perfect vs past simple speaking activities
Where should I put that comma, semi-colon, colon, or full stop? Past Tense Writing Prompts I'll present the past tense writing prompts in much the same way, although I strongly encourage teachers and students to recombine them as they see fit, and to explore the ways each tense supports and is supported by others. The student with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner. How have you been? Don't forget to ask students to read each others stories, they are sure to be amusing. Students bet between 10 and points for each item. Finally, the interviewees reveal their secrets. The other students try to guess the news. Use both present perfect continuous and present continuous to describe things you have been doing and things you're still doing. The students read the sentences and questions on their worksheet, some of which contain errors in the use of the present perfect. Students take it in turns to take a card from the top of the pack, without showing it to anyone. Students take it in turns to roll the dice and move their counter along the board.
This approach is especially effective for students who are not particularly concerned with the various names of each tense, as it emphasizes the situations for which each tense is most often used.
They can add more information if they wish but they should not make it complicated. Describe it. Frankly, I know a few native English speakers who could use a little practice.
This can be a mix of habitual or repeated actions, statement of fact or generalization and scheduled events in the near future. Any interesting findings can then be discussed in more detail. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.
If students guess correctly, they win the amount they bet.
