Because I did so poorly on my previous tense exam, this section gave me some anxiety. I believe I was able to take in on the information well enough for the exam because it felt like the third review of the tense material, since the forms don't change. That being said, this unit was useful in explaining the forms and everything effectively.When a teacher has a positive attitude, it can greatly increase the effectiveness of a lesson. Teachers with engaging attitudes can usually elicit a greater level of participation. Speaking clearly and smiling are important. Appropriate use of gestures and miming can also be useful. Providing examples is almost always good whenever possible.
