Using the tenses correctly is widely known to be one of the most difficult aspects of learning English. This workshop gives a general overview of the English tense system and aims to clarify the most typical problem areas of English tense use (e.g. simple and progressive forms; the concept of perfect; present perfect vs. past tense; present vs. present perfect tense).
After a general theoretical overview (time line, simple vs. progressive form, perfect aspect, state verbs), each tense will first be looked at and practiced in isolation to enhance participants' understanding and competent use of each individual tense. In a second step, all English tenses will be practiced in mixed-tense exercises to improve participants' ability to choose the most appropriate tense in any given context.
All tenses will be practiced in writing and some additional speaking activities.
Everybody who is interested in improving their understanding and use of the English tenses. Basic knowledge of the English tense forms is a prerequisite
Handouts will be custom-tailored to suit participants' needs and interests.
