How my students finally understood the tenses


When I started teaching English in a classroom, I found that it was very difficult to teach the tenses.

Often, the students didn't really understand them.

In our coursebooks, we'd study an explanation of one tense and a short exercise.

Then we'd move on to a different grammar point or something else.

Normally, the students could do the exercise, but they couldn't use the tense properly when they were speaking.

One day, I was trying to teach the past perfect continuous and I had an idea. I drew the relationship between the tenses on the board.

And suddenly, my students understood!

They could see that the present perfect was like the future perfect and the past perfect.

They could see the way that we use the simple tenses actually makes sense.

They could see the system and the relationship between the tenses.

And, after a bit of practice, they could use the tenses much more easily when they were speaking or writing!

This is when I decided I wanted to know more about the English tenses system.

Tenses explanations were very easy to understand plus we have the pdf to study and review the topic. There are many exercises which helped me to fix the grammar. I had many doubts about tenses and now they are clearer to me.

I liked the good combination of explanations, challenging exercises, quizes, flash cards and repititions. The structure was logical, it all built on each other. Your way of explaining is brilliant. The most important thing for me: I have found what I've been looking for all my life. There wasn't any teacher in my schoollife, who explained the tenses to me.

Amajida from Indonesia


I liked the course's structure, the categorization, and the usage explanation of each tenses. The usage comparisons between each tenses were also clearly explained and straightforward. This course is totally worth the money.

Some of the books I read to make the challenge!


I read all these books (and many others!), looking at how the tenses are similar and different from each other, looking at how different writers think about the tenses and trying to find a good way to explain them.



And finally, I took all my research and I explained it as simply and clearly as I could in a course for you!



It's one of my most popular courses and I really believe that it's useful.


The challenge includes 30 days of lessons.


- You'll learn everything that I know about the structure of the English tenses.


- You'll see how the tenses fit together and you'll be much better at knowing when to use them when you're speaking.


- You'll remember everything because I have included all the practice that you need.



I'm looking forward to seeing you inside! And you can do this - the tenses are easier than you think!

I like the way how you explain using of the tenses step by step and I enjoyed the exercises where I had to concentrate very much on each word in assignment. Based on these exercises I understood a lot of grammar that was not clear to me yet.

Antonella from Italy


I like very much how you structured the course, it's very different from the others that I have followed until now. Usually the teachers explain first all present tenses then all past tenses and finally all future tenses but I found your course much more clear and useful to understend how to use each verb forms. Moreover, I like very very very much the Anki decks!

Fernando from Argentina


Beside the videos, transcription of the videos, quizzes, exercises and flash cards (all of them very good tools for learning), the fact of being a daily course helped a lot to create the habit of learning. I studied for about one hour after breakfast, and I enjoyed it so much that I think I'll keep studying daily.

Alina from Ukraine


Thanks to your course, I have not only understood the rules of tenses, but also got the feel the concept of their application in practice. I became more confident and prompt in writing e-mails to our partners abroad.

Donna from USA


I really enjoyed your explanations. They were easy to follow and to understand. Additionally, I liked the repetition of the exercises. The more exercises I do, the better I am at retaining the information. The mini reviews, prior to starting the new lesson, were a nice touch.

Sandra from Serbia


It's so detailed, so well explained, couldn't find anywhere something similar. All I need I can find on one place, and I have it forever. I have better conversation in English.
