Present Perfect Tense

Click one by one to watch. The hardest point in presenting present perfect tense for the most languages is to get the students to realise how this tense is used. We ( Turkish Teachers ) tell our students that this tense is used for the unfinished actions or the actions that still have effects on us or for the experiences... bla bla... and they are confused. But with this slide they can see and experience how it is used. Because this work supports the rules we say with animated scenes. For each rule you can present a mini video. Instead of the rules they remember the scenes. And they no more mix it with simple past and simple present. They can turn the abstract rules into tangible ones. And if you don't mind, I may suggest you that after watching each scenes, have your students make their own sentences (just like in the scene) connected to their lives so that they can adapt the present perfect tense and use it properly.
