В курсе начальной школы, в третьем или четвертом классе, ученики знакомятся с видо-временной формой глагола Past Simple. Для многих ребят изучение правила вызывает трудности. Например, сложности вызывает употребление правильных глаголов, их написание с суффиксом “ed”, произношение, а еще неправильные глаголы, отрицательные и вопросительные предложения, формы глагола “to be” и все виды предложений с ними.

Рассказываем, как помочь ученикам уровня Elementary легко и просто освоить форму Past Simple.

Мы ведем набор учителей английского с высшим образованием и опытом преподавания. Для знакомства с вами на первом этапе отбора мы попросим записать 4 аудиосообщения.
