Student Proficiency Level: Pre-Intermediate level 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 Simple Tense – Regular and Irregular Verbs and Was/Were Approximate chronological order: Story: – Starts: 0:00 – Ends: 2:16 Grammar Rules and Explanation: – Starts: 2:16 – Ends: 8:17 Regular Verbs: For most regular verbs, we add +ed. Example: walk – walked Example sentence: Miss Johnson walked to the park for a stroll. Verbs ending with -e: For verbs ending with -e, we add +d. Example: die – died Example sentence: She was hit by a truck and died. NOTE: die, died - verbs dead - adjective Verbs ending with consonant + y: For verbs ending with consonant + y, we delete -y, and add +ied. Example: marry – married Example sentence: Miss Moore married Dave. NOTE: Married in this sentence is a verb. They fell in love and got married. Married in this sentence, however, is not a verb. It’s actually an adjective. Got is the main verb. Verbs ending vowel + y: For verbs ending with vowel + y, we don’t delete -y, we just add +ed. Example: stay – stayed Example sentence: They stayed at a romantic 1 star hotel. Verbs ending with vowel, consonant and vowel: For verbs ending with vowel, consonant and vowel, we double the consonant and add +ed. Example: travel – travelled Example sentence: They travelled overseas. NOTE: In American English, the past simple tense of travel is traveled, spelt with one l. So American English often doesn’t follow this rule. Even in other types of English, this rule isn’t always followed. Example: visit – visited. Example sentence: They visited many beautiful places. Irregular Verbs: For irregular verbs, there are no rules, so we just have to remember them all. Examples: go – went meet – met fall – fell have – had break – broke see – saw get – got give – gave Example sentence: One day, Miss Johnson went shopping at the supermarket and met Mr. Smith. Past Simple – be: was/were am – was is – was are – were Example sentence: Miss Johnson was on the bus. Grammar Form / Structure: Affirmative and Negative Sentence Form: To change positive past simple tense sentences into the negative, we add didn’t in front of the main verb and change the main verb into the base form. Did is the past tense of do. We don’t put two past simple verbs in the same past simple clause, so this is why we need to change the main verb into the base form. Example: went – didn’t go NOT: didn’t went Example sentence: Miss Johnson went shopping at the supermarket. Miss Johnson didn’t go shopping at the supermarket. Affirmative and Negative Sentence Form: Past Simple be – was/were was – wasn’t were – weren’t Wasn’t is the contraction of was not. Weren’t is the contraction of were not. Example sentence: Mr. Jones was very sad. Mr. Jones wasn’t very sad.

Elicit from students: Which one is singular and which one is plural? (Was is singular and were is plural.) But sometimes English doesn’t always follow the rules. The pronoun you can be singular or plural, but we use were for both singular you and plural you. – Positive example sentence: You were late to school. Negative example question: You weren’t late to school. Wh- Question: – Example question: Why were you late to school? Yes/No Question Form: – Example question: Were you late to school?

Past Simple Tense - English grammar tutorial video lesson
 
03:50
Past simple tense, one of the elementary past tenses in the English language. I am going to show you how the form a past simple tense and when to use a past simple tense. But before we get started it's good to know that in the English language we have regular and irregular verbs, and it is advisable that you study the most commonly used irregular verbs. Now let's get started. Take a look at these sentences: I walked to school yesterday. He paid for dinner last week. Both these sentences are in the past simple tense. How to form a past simple tense? For the regular verbs we simply use the infinitve form of the verb and add '-ed'. I kicked the ball. You closed the door.He wiped the table. She cooked dinner. It rained yesterday. For the plural forms: We walked to school. You watched the tennis match. They marked the tests. We need to pay extra attention to verbs that end in an '-e' such as live, close and wipe. With these verbs we use the infinitive form of the verb, but we only add a '-d'. For example I lived here in 2012. He closed the window. They wiped the floor. We also need to pay extra attention to verbs that end in a '-y'. Especially those preceded by a consonant, such as spy, envy and study. The consonants being a 'p' a 'v' and a 'd'.Here the '-y' changes into an '-i'. For example He spied on his neighbours. We envied her cousin. They studied a lot. Now let's have a look at the irregular verbs. Aall irregular verbs have a unique past simple tense form. I built that shed last year, the inifinive form is to build. She taught English in the 1990s the infinitive form is to teach. We ran the marathon in 2012.The infinitive form is 'to run.' Let's have alook at the past simple tense in questions.For all verbs, regular end irregular, we use the auxiliary verb 'to do', but we need the past simple tense, which is did and the infinitive form of the verb. Did she talk to him this morning? Did you ride your bicycles yesterday? Did they work on the farm last year? For the past simple tense in negations, regular and irregular we also use the past simple tense of the auxiliary verb 'to do', which is did and we add 'not' to it, contracting it into 'didn't plus the infinitive form of the verb. I didn't want to come over the last night. We didn't to walk to school this morning. They didn't listen to the radio yesterday. Let's have a look at the past simple tense in use.We use the past simple tense for things that have happened at a specific time in the past, so we need to know when it happened. For example: yesterday, this morning or in 2009. He left for New York yesterday. We ate our breakfast this morning. They got married in 2009. We also use the past simple tense in questions after 'when'. When did you buy that t-shirt? When did you graduate from high school? I thank you for your attention.

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. Timeline: Unfinished States – We’ve known each other for two weeks now. – The boy met the girl at a certain point in the past, and they still know each other in the present. – They have known each other for two weeks, which means they met two weeks ago. Simple Past: Function – To talk about finished events where the time is known. – Example 1: How was your date honey? – Example 2: We broke up… – In these examples, although the time is not mentioned, both the boy and his mother know the time of the date. – We can use just for emphasis that an event recently happened. – Example: We just broke up. Form: Statements: Subject + have/has (+ never/just/already) + past participle + … (+ for/since, time word, yet) I + ‘ve + been + to Australia. I + ‘ve + never + been + to America. I + haven’t + made + dinner + yet. We + ‘ve + known + each other + for two weeks now. Open Questions: Wh-/How + have/has + subject + past participle + … (+ for) + ? How long + have + we + known + each other + for? *Wh-/how question words and for are for open questions. Yes/No Questions: Have/has + subject (+ ever) + past participle + … (+ yet, time word) + ? Have + you + ever + been + to Australia? Have + you + finished + cooking + dinner + yet? *Ever, yet and time words are for yes/no questions. Summary

Present Simple exercise - English grammar exercise
 
06:11
Present simple exercise. Put your knowledge into practise and find out if you know everything on the present simple or need to watch the lesson again! Video exercise with feedback. Welcome to English grammar spot! It is now time to put your knowledge with present simple exercise one. In this exercise I'm going to give you 15 sentences that look like the following sentence: I ... to play football. So I'm going to give you the infinitive form of the verb and your job is to conjugate that verb into fitting it in the sentence. I am going to give you a time frame, Time's up! I play football. Ready? Let's get started. They ...(to walk) eight miles a day. They walk eight miles a day. Remember when it is a plural we simply use the base form of the verb. It usually ... (to snow) in winter here. It usually snows in winter here. Here it concerns a third person singular ít'so we need to add an -s to the base form of the verb. Water ... (to boil) at a 100 degrees Celsius. Water boils at a 100 degrees Celsius. Again we have a third person singular namely water because we can replace it by the pronoun 'it.' So we need to add an -s, also remember when it is a present simple and it concerns a fact we need to use the present simple. All trains ... (to depart) from platform B. All trains depart from platform B. Here all trains can be replaced by the pronoun 'they' and since it is a plural we simply use the base form of the verb. Those dogs ... (to be) old. Those dogs are old. Remember the verb 'to be' has its own forms so it is hard to conjugate it: I am you are, he is, she is, it is, we are, you are, they are and those dogs can be replaced by they, so we use are. That cat ... (to try) to catch the mouse. That cat tries to catch the mouse. Now remember when it concerns a one syllable verb that ends in a 'y', and is preceded by a consonant and more importantly when it concerns a third person singular and here that cat can be replaced by 'it we change the 'y' into 'ie' and obviously we add an -s. The car ... (to be) fast. The car is fast. Remember 'to be' has its own forms. Now let's continue with questions. You ... (to speak) English? Do you speak English? Remember when forming questions in the present simple we need a helping verb and with the present simple e use the verb 'to do.' ... your brother ... (to speak) Arabic. Does your brother speak Arabic? Now remember your brother is a third person singular so we need to use does, but don't put an -s after speak because the -s has moved on to the verb 'to do' So it is not does your brother speaks. I ... (not to like) pancakes. Also with negations in the present simple we need the verb 'to do' so here the answer is: I don't like pancakes. It ... (not to rain) in July here. It doesn't rain in July here. Remember it's a third person singular and we need a helping verb to do so it becomes does and don't put an -s after rain. ... (you - not to know) me? Don't you know me? Angela often ... (to try) to help me. Angela often tries to help me. Remember third person singular ending in y. The child ... (to catch) the ball for me. The child catches the ball for me. Remember when the verb ends in an -s sound, here catch, and it concerns a third person singular we have to put -es after the base form of the verb. Final question. ... (to do - your sister) your homework? Does your sister do your homework? This must look a little strange because we use the verb 'to do' twice here, but first we use does obviously as a helping verb and the second 'do' is a lexical verb, it adds meaning to the sentence, here the meaning of making. I thank you for your attention and I hope you did well but if you need to know extra information simply go to youtube.com/englishgrammarspot or go to www.englishgrammarspot.com to watch the video on the present simple again or to watch my other videos.

Fun English Grammar Lesson: Past Simple vs Present Perfect - Learn the Difference (Examples + quiz)
 
11:31
Get your fluency book here: https://www.tofluency.com/book (it's FREE to download!) This English lesson explains the difference between the past simple and the present perfect. This is a difficult area for a lot of learners. My job is to help you understand this difference. You're going to get clear explanations and lots of examples. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE TENSES The past simple is used for actions that finished in the past and have no connection to the present. The present perfect is used for actions that haven't finished. The example I gave is this: - My grandma never went to Madrid - Paul has never been to Madrid My grandma died a long time ago. Therefore, the action of her (possibly) going to Madrid is over. Paul is still alive. The action of him going or not going to Madrid continues. We use the simple past with past time expressions. This includes: - I went there YESTERDAY - She told me TWO HOURS AGO - They went to London IN 2002 Present time expressions are more difficult. What tense you use depends on what you're talking about. For example: - I've had a great day (in general) - I had a great day today (talking about work that has now finished) The present perfect is stricter in British English. For example: - Did you have breakfast yet? (you'll hear this in American English) - Have you had breakfast yet? (only in British English) USING THE PRESENT PERFECT WITH JUST - I just saw her (American English) - I've just seen her (British English) OTHER ENGLISH LESSONS RELATED ON THIS TOPIC: - Present perfect simple vs continuous: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oODlA-r7HU For vs Since: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTddHN6ipmc Been to vs been in: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIl5hOQ5i-A Present perfect with just: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpPVImrOmxA Present perfect in the negative: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3nx11zwhGU Also, watch this video to learn more differences between British and American English: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rtbvqb-_1E ENGLISH FLUENCY PROGRAM: My program gives you the method that will dramatically improve your speaking, grammar, and pronunciation and the materials you need to follow this method.

Past Continuous Tense vs. Past Simple: The Mysterious Stalker (Suspense Thriller Short - ESL Video)

Watch the suspense thriller short about Elissa and the mysterious stalker & present the past continuous tense vs. past simple to students in a pre-intermediate level lesson. 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.
