My IELTS Classroom | Past Tenses in English (Narrative Tenses)

Tense Time: Narrative Tenses

Next Video: Tense Time- Future Tenses

In this bundle of joy, we won't study one tense, we will study FOUR! Yes, all  of the past tenses in one video! Using correct tenses is important for EVERY student in the speaking and writing tests, but it is particularly important for General Training students, who are often asked to write about a past event in a letter. Basically, if you can't get these tenses correct, your chance of receiving a 7 in the Writing and Speaking papers is very, very low (like 0%). We will study:

  • how to make the past simple, past continuous and past perfect tenses
  • how to use these tenses to tell a story in the past
  • the differences between the past perfect simple and past perfect continuous
