EFL teachers distinguish 3 times in English language. Each one has a group of special aspects. They are: simple, continuous, perfect and perfect continuous. Each time describes a special state and has its special rules. So teacher should think about mistakes and errors that can occur during the lesson in advance. Present simple forms: + subject + base worm - subject+auxiliary verb(do/does) + not+ base form ? Auxiliary verb(do/ does) + subject+ base form 1.We use present simple tense, when we talk about some habitual or routine actions. He drinks coffee every morning. So the typical mistake that student can make it is ?He drink coffee every morning.? Teacher must be prepared and pays more attention on grammar structure of the third person singular. 2.?The Earth goes around the Sun.? Facts and permanent situations. The problem can be usage of the article and third person form (goes-go). 3.Commentaries, directions and instructions. ?He serves to the right hand court and Smith makes a return.? 4.Newspaper headlines. ?Scientists find planet with water.? 5.Present stories. ?And then he takes the gun and shoots.? 6.Historical sequence. Teacher should use different questionnaires, gap-fill games during activate stage We prefer to use the present simple rather than the present continuous with verbs describing states (enjoy, have, hate, like, love.) We use present continuous when we talk about: Actions in progress at the moment of speaking. Temporary actions at the time of speaking. A very frequent actions. Background events in a present story. Describe the developing situation. A regular action around a point of time. PC form + subject + auxiliary verb(be) + verb ing - subject + auxiliary verb + not + werb ing ? Auxiliary verb + subject + verb ing Teacher should use different mime and picture games during the activate stage. We use present perfect when we talk about Some past actions that have a present result. Something which began in the past and is still true now, at the time of speaking. Some finished actions, that happened at an indefinite time. PP forms: + subject + have/ has + part participle - subject +haven?t/ hasn?t + past participle ? Have/ has+ subject +past participle Teacher should use such games like: ?find someone who...?, ?what have you done today??, ?Change the room.? We use present perfect continuous when we describe a recently finished activity (uninterrupted activity) which has a present result (I?ve been crying whole days, my eyes are red.) Or when we communicate an incomplete and ongoing activity and want to say how long it has continued. (I?ve been working there for five years.) PPC form + subject + have/has + been + verb ing - subject + have/has not + been + verb ing ?have/ has + subject + been + verb ing Teacher should use a ?result paper? game.
