Neighbors Dialogue - Focus on switching perfect and past tenses

By August 28, 2008

Follow me on:

This intermediate level dialogue between two neighbors focuses on switching between the present perfect - I've lived here for ten years - the present perfect continuous - He's been working for a few days - and the past simple - He moved here two years ago. Practice reading the dialogue for pronunciation and to get used to switching between these tenses that are easily confused.

I find this dialogue very helpful because the non-native speakers always confuse the past simple, present perfect and present continuous tenses.
