Teaching Tenses – Books for TEFL Teachers

teaching tensesTeaching Tenses by Rosemary Aitken is a handy book for TEFL teachers to use in preparation for introducing tenses to students.

The book is comprehensive and all the different tenses are logically explained. Lots of examples and uses are given to put the rules into context and help the teacher convey the meaning more clearly to the students. Alongside this tables and time lines are included as another way to present and understand the various tenses.

This is a good book for new teachers and those on the TEFL course to get hold of but also one that is going to be used regularly throughout a teachers career. There is a lot of photocopiable material included that can be introduced into classes. This contains helpful drawings that can be used to elicit tenses from students.
