English Grammar – Past Perfect Continuous – Teaching Ideas 2 – ESL Jobs
The teaching idea for the past perfect continuous tense covered in this video is an adaptation of a present perfect continuous idea. The past perfect continuous is rarely used so it can be quite hard to think up original and interesting ideas for it so adapting ideas for other tenses where suitable is useful. For this idea students are given situation that was happening in the past and the other students having to say what they think had been happening before that event to cause it. For example:
Yesterday you were crying (because you had been watching a sad film).
