Introducing the First Few Tenses in Class

By August 8, 2012

Follow me on:

Teaching the present simple tense is almost always the first tense for most learners. Truth be told, most English learners are false beginners so you can begin by speaking about your own routines to help students remember what they've learned. Many books and programs then continue by teaching the present continuous. Personally, I prefer to wait a while for this tense and like to move on to teaching the past simple to help strengthen students understanding of the simple tense structures.
