English Grammar — Present Perfect — Teaching Ideas 3 — Teaching Abroad Salaries
The Present perfect tense is a very useful tense. It is the tense that relates the past to the present. It also tends to be the tense that can often present some difficulties to the English language learner and sometimes the English language teacher.
The activity in this video has the students examining two pictures, picture A and picture B. The pictures depict a scene in a house; Picture B is similar to A but with a number of changes. Students are asked to spot the changes and to express the change using the Present Perfect. For example in Picture A, a pile of unironed clothes can be seen next to the ironing board but in picture B the clothes are ironed. So the student would say “He has done the ironing.” Another example answer would be, “He has hung up the towel.” There are also word prompts on the sheet to assist the students with their answers.
