CELTA TASK 1
first pair of content:
1a) She's lived there for years.
1b) She were living there for a long time.
1a)'s conventional sentence structure term is вЂpresent perfect', and its ingredient parts will be: subject + auxiliary action-word has (conjugated here for вЂShe' i. e. has) & _____ed (i. e. earlier participle)
1b)'s conventional grammar term is definitely вЂpast simple', and its ingredient parts are: subject & ______ male impotence (i. elizabeth. past tense)
The meaning of 1a) is that вЂshe' were living вЂthere' before, she lives there today, and she'll presumably be living there for some indeterminable time in the near future, whereas this is of 1b) is that вЂshe' lived вЂthere' in the past, for some years, which is not living there at this point.
An estate agent, after displaying somebody in regards to house.
This can be just a conversation on a COMPACT DISC, a video or on paper, with pictures:
Interested party A) So , when ever was the last time somebody lived right now there then?
House agent, land agent, real estate agent, real estate broker B) Hmmmmm, well, it absolutely was lived in briefly a couple of years back by a mother and her young kid, but before that, well that takes all of us back a number of yearsвЂ¦. Coming from 1976 there was a lady -- she were living there for a long time.
It's a lot to take on вЂ“ there's a lot of advancements to be madeвЂ¦ Do you know everything with the others who live nearby?
Well which lovely friends and family next door that sideвЂ¦ they've only existed here for a year or two, but in that house there, (points) there is an old buck вЂ“ she has lived right now there for yearsвЂ¦
Anticipated problems with form
вЂў The contractions of вЂhas' to вЂs and вЂhave' to вЂve in our perfect maybe difficult to get learners to deal with, therefore they may avoid using them, consequently showing up too formal. вЂў Irregular verbs.
вЂў The different instances present best is used, plus the meanings it can infer.
вЂў Together with the past basic, the meaning is more straightforward, although deciding which in turn of the two to use may cause problems as a result highlighting the importance of determining differences within the lesson.
вЂў The word вЂfor' is a weak form.
вЂў The вЂv' inвЂlived' could be a hard word for a few learners. вЂў They can pronounce the вЂ-ed' since вЂliv/Й›d/ instead of вЂliv/d/. вЂў вЂYears' may well be a hard phrase to master as it is a dipthong.
In this case I would personally ask strategy questions (CCQs), in both cases: вЂў вЂDoes the lady still live there? ' a) Certainly. B) Number вЂ
вЂў вЂWill the girl live there tomorrow? ' a) certainly b) not any
вЂў вЂDid she live there yesterday? ' a) yes
вЂў вЂWhat tense is it? ' Present perfect/Past tense
second set of sentences:
2a) The students had still left when the bell rang
2b) The students still left when the bell rang
2c) The students were leaving when the bell phoned
Typical grammar term: Past perfect. Constituent parts: subject + had + ____ (i. e. earlier participle) Conventional grammar term: Past simple. Constituent parts: subject & _____ (i. e. earlier tense) Standard grammar term: Past ongoing. Constituent parts: subject + was/were & ____ing (i. e. gerund)
This refers to days gone by and conveys the fact that something occurred before some kind of interruption or perhaps event, likewise in the past. This refers to a conference in the past. In such a case an event during the past signalled the onset of an additional event before. It refers to an event going on and still taking place at the time of some type of interruption of times.
Ideally there would be 3 distinct videos demonstrating students going out of school with the different times. If this did not include possible a soundtrack could work instead.
Anticipated difficulties with form:
вЂў Scholars may find hard to remember where and when to put the вЂhad', plus the 'were'. вЂў They may mixture up make use of the inflections вЂing', previous tense and past participle. вЂў The application of вЂing' during the past could cause a particular trouble.
вЂ¦with that means
