Quick Tip: Teach Grammar Completely

We tend to gloss over grammar and not get into the nitty-gritty. We figure since we usually don't like to teach it, students don't like it either. While that can be true, you should still give your students as much information as possible. Remember to talk about form, function, and give examples. Let's use the present perfect as an example.

  • Form: have / has + past participle
  • Function: (there are many, but let's concentrate on one) to show that an event started in the past and is still taking place now.
  • Example: You have studied English for 2 years.

This is just a quick overview. For more info take a look at teaching grammar.
