Little by little, I’ll be developing a series of videos for upper levels students in need of a review of all the verb tenses in English. Lesson 1 has been posted, and it gives an overview. Leson 2 will focus on the simple present. At the upper levels, I expect students to have more questions about use than form, so I would like to offer a classroom activity that prompts communication using the simple present in order to express facts, general truths, and present habits. If your students enjoy constructive games, they should appreciate this one. Please view my Constant Categories_handout.
