TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Linda, Part 4

 

In the fourth part of her TEFL review video journal of her TEFL course with ITTT Linda talks about her experience of studying unit 4. This grammar based unit is the first that covers the tense system of the English language. The unit focuses on the present tenses and Linda feels that while grammar can be quite boring to study, this unit does a great job in explaining how the tenses can cause problems for learners of English by pointing out issues that do not occur to native speakers of the language.
