If you love our videos, please support us at Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/oomongzu WEBSITE: http://oomongzu.com For more creative, engaging and interactive animated grammar teaching videos, please visit our website. For the “No Music” version of this video, please click here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hS6FNg0VoJw Title of English / ESL Video: Elissa and the Mysterious Stalker Target English Grammar: Past Continuous Tense vs. Past Simple Tense. (Also known as Past Progressive Tense and Simple Past Tense) Student Proficiency Level: Pre-intermediate level grammar Suggested Courses: General English. Instructions: – Play the video in class after delivering a warm-up activity first. – Pause the video whenever the narrator asks students a question to give students time to answer. For example, after elicitations and concept checking questions (CCQs). Summary of English Grammar: Past Continuous Tense vs. Past Simple Approximate chronological order: Storyline: – Starts at 0:00. Ends at 2:40. English Grammar Rules and Explanations: Function: – To talk about an action still in progress in the past. Timeline: – Someone was chasing her. – Someone started chasing her in the past, but we don’t know when. – That person stopped chasing her some time in the past. Again, we don’t know when. – We are talking about the whole period from the beginning of the chase to the end. Specific Uses: – Background event: – On a cold dark night, Elissa was working late at the office. – This sentence sets the setting and the background of the story. Simple Past: – To talk about completed or repeated actions. – She quickly ran into the cemetery. – This action is finished and completed. – When we use two simple past actions, the second action happened after the first action. For example, – She quickly ran into the cemetery and hid there. – So she ran into the cemetery first, then she hid inside the cemetery. Combining the Past Progressive Tense with the Simple Past: – Past progressive = longer action – Past simple = shorter action – The shorter action happened while the longer action was still in progress. But sometimes these two actions happen at the same time. – Example: As she was leaving her office, she realised the streets were now empty. – Elissa leaving her office is the longer action. – Elissa realising the streets were empty is the shorter action. – So Elissa was leaving her office and during this time, she noticed the streets were now empty. But she didn’t stop leaving the office when she noticed this. Specific Uses: – Interruption: Sometimes a shorter action interrupted a longer action. – Example: While she was walking back home, she heard some footsteps behind her. She turned around to look. – Elissa walking back home is the longer action. – Hearing the footsteps is the shorter action. – In this case, the footsteps interrupted her walking and made her stop to look back before she continued walking again. Multiple Progressive Actions in the Same Sentence: – Multiple actions happening at the same time. – Example: I was walking home and someone was following me. – We don’t know which action started first. – We also don’t know which action finished first. – We only know that during a certain period in the past these two actions were happening at the same time. – We can use more than two past progressive actions in the same sentence, and all these actions were happening at the same time some time in the past. Form: Statements: Subject + was/were + verb (-ing) + … Elissa + was + working + late. Yes/No Questions: Was/were + subject + verb (-ing) + …? Was + Elissa + working + late? Open Questions: Wh-/How + was/were + subject + verb (-ing) + …? Why + was + Elissa + working + late? Conjunctions: – We use conjunctions to join past simple and progressive actions. – Example conjunctions: while, when, as. – Example sentence 1: While she was walking back home, she heard some footsteps behind her. – Example sentence 2: When Elissa was hiding, the footsteps stopped. – Example sentence 3: As she was running, she saw a cemetery. Switching the Order of the Tenses: – We can also place the simple past action at the front of the sentence before the past continuous action. – Example: She heard some footsteps behind her while she was walking back home. Concept Checking Questions (CCQs)

English Grammar - Past Continuous - Teaching Ideas - TESOL
 
01:35
http://www.teflonline.net In this video we look at a TESOL teaching idea for the past continuous tense. For this activity students are put into groups and are handed pictures of people doing different activities. The pictures are placed upside down in a pile and the students take it in turns to turn them over. When they have turned over a card they must make a past continuous sentence based on the picture they have. For example: If they turn over a picture of a woman swimming they would say: She was swimming yesterday. For more advanced students this activity can be used to compare past continuous and past simple. For example: While I was doing the washing up, I broke three plates. Becoming a TESOL teacher enables you to travel the world experiencing new cultures while earning a living and helping people to learn the global language. Taking TESOL course will give you the knowledge and skills needed to make you an effective teacher of English.

English Grammar - Past Continuous - Teaching Ideas 2 - TEFL
 
01:40
http://www.teflonline.net For this TEFL teaching idea we ask the students to look at a scene in a hospital where there are several people doing different things. Students are given time to memorise the picture before it is turned over. The students would then be asked to say what the people were doing in the picture. For example: A nurse was giving a patient an injection. A man was pouring a glass of water. As the trainer notes in the video, this activity can be adapted to make it into a competition by having students in teams compete to remember as many actions as they can. Grammar points such as this are often seen as fairly boring to most English language students, especially those who do not choose to study English. So being able to come up with ideas that encourage students to practice the grammar in interesting ways is an important part of being an English teacher. Taking an online TEFL course with ITTT will give you an understanding of the grammar points that you need to teach when starting out as a new teacher of English and will also give you some great ideas on how to teach them.

Past Simple and Past Continuous - English grammar tutorial video lesson
 
04:04
Past simple and past continuous grammar lesson. In this lesson I am going to show how to use and form both the past simple & the past continuous and how to keep them apart. Take a look at these sentences: I watched the telly last night. I was watching the telly last night. The first sentences contains a past simple, the second sentence is in the past continuous. In this lesson I'm going to show you how to form a past simple and how to form a past continuous and when to use past simple andwhen to use a past continuous and more important the difference between the two. First we are going to take a look at how to form these past tenses. As you might know in the English language we have regular and irregular verbs. And this this is important to remember when forming a past simple. To make a past simple for the regular verbs, we use the base form of the verb and add 'ed.'' For example: He worked late last night www.englishgrammarspot.com The irregular verbs have their own and unique past tense so you need to study those carefully. I bought a new t-shirt yesterday. The infinitive form of the verb bought is to buy. With the past continuous we do not need to worry about regular and irregular verbs. Because all verbs that take a past continous whether they're regular or irregular, are formed by using was or were, the past tenses of the verb 'to be', and the base form of the verb and '-ing.' For example: He was working last night I was buying a t-shirt, when I saw her yesterday. Now let's have a look at how to use a past simple and how to use a past continuous and how to keep them apart. we use a past simple for actvities that were finished in the past, we usually use a time frame: He worked late last night. Here last night is what we consider timeframe. I bought a new T-shirt yesterday Here yesterday is a timeframe. A past continuous is used for activities started and finished in the past, but we want emphasized duration: so we want to show the other person the other listener or reader that the action lasted for quite some time. For example: He was working all night so we want emphasize that it lasted the entire night. we also use past continuous form for an ongoing action in the past interrupted by a sudden event. For example: I was buying a t-shirt when I ran into her so I was doing something and then suddenly a friend came up to me that's when I ran into her. Please note that for the interruption we use a past simple so we often find a past continuous and a past simple in the same sentence with the past continuous showing us that it was a continuing activity and the past simple showing the interruption of that activity.

Past Simple lesson for children
 
15:33
В этом уроке вы можете ознакомиться с несколькими играми на проработку и повторение Past Simple Tense (Простое прошлое время). В начале урока дети повторяют неправильные глаголы, грамматическую конструкцию времени. Отрабатываю положительные , отрицательные предложения, а также задают друг другу вопросы и отвечают на них. Замечательная игра цепочка, с помощью которой можо составлять предложения в любом времени. Такое задание помогает не только учиться правильно составлять предложение, но и удерживать внимание всей группы. Тем более детям интерактивные игры нравятся намного больше, нежели писать предложения в тетради, как это делают в общеобразовательных школах. At this tutorial, you can find a few games for the practice and repetition Past Simple Tense. At the beginning of the lesson the children repeat the irregular verbs and grammatical construction of this time. We practiced positive, negative sentences, and ask each other questions and answer them. Wonderful game "Chain", with which you can make sentanses for any grammar. This task not only helps to learn the correct structure , but also to hold the attention of the entire group. Especially children enjoy interactive games much more than write sentences in a notebook, as is done in schools. ссылка на канал : https://www.youtube.com/user/alyona1507 ссылка на видео: https://www.youtube.com/edit?video_id=6pWaaQ71B8g

For example, after elicitations and concept checking questions (CCQs). Summary of English Grammar: Present Perfect Tense vs. Past Simple Approximate chronological order: Rules and Explanation: Functions: – Past events – Recent past events – Unfinished states Timeline: Past Events – The present perfect simple tense indicates that something happened in the past. – We don’t know when it happened. We just know it happened in the past some time between the day that you were born until now. Visual Representation of Example: – Example: I’ve been to Australia. – This means some time in the past, you went to Australia. – been vs. gone: Gone means you went there, but you’re still not back yet. Been means you went there, and then you left. – We often use never to emphasize negatives and ever to emphasize questions. – Example: Have you ever been to America? (No, I’ve never been to America.) Recent Past Events: – Example 1: Mum, have you finished cooking dinner? – Example 2: Yes boys, I’ve made your favourite! – We can also use just, yet and already for emphasis. – Example 1: Mum, have you finished cooking dinner yet? – Example 2: Yes boys, I’ve just made your favourite! Unfinished States: – Example: We’ve known each other for two weeks now. – We use for for a period of time. – Examples: for an hour, for two days, for the last 10 years. – We use since for a starting point in time. – Examples: since last night, since three months ago, since the 1980s.
