Verb Tenses—Why so Tense? Making Sense out of Verb Tenses

Verb Tenses—Why so Tense? Making Sense of Verb Tenses

Brenda Hines, a TESL certified instructor of English, will answer all your questions about verb tenses.

Verb tenses are one of the harder concepts to master and to understand, but Brenda has developed a way to teach tenses so that you can understand.

Brenda writes:

What is so “perfect” about the perfect tenses?

Can you tell the difference between a present progressive and a past progressive action?

Do you know how many verb tenses are used in the English language?

Do you know how a mood or voice can make the tense harder to identify?

The answers to these and other burning questions will be uncovered during our session.

Learn to correctly identify verb tenses and how to use them.

*Brenda Hines is a TESL certified instructor of English to speakers of other languages. She, like most native speakers of English, admits that she did not have all the tenses sorted out until she became a teacher of English as a second language. This session is sure to make you much less tense about verb tenses!*

We are meeting at the Front Porch, the gift shop located in the Ogburn House on the Scarritt-Bennett campus at the corner of 19th Avenue South & Grand Avenue.

The Front Porch is basically a public coffeehouse situation. There are two rooms available. We can meet outside or we can meet inside, depending on the weather.

We can support the Front Porch by having a cup of coffee, tea, soft drink or smoothie.

Parking is free at the meters on Sunday, so there is plenty of parking along 19th Avenue South.

Also, there is free parking behind the Front Porch with two parking lots.

Arrive early if you wish. Gallery F has a great show up right now.

    I loved the handouts and the explanation of the verb tenses. I know I'll have to go back and review my notes to keep the information fresh. Thanks, Brenda, for a great workshop!
