@JTT,
Then I have no comment. PQ asked for help on ESL in another thread. There was no reply. Maybe you could help her. No, I don't live in Hong Kong.

@The Pentacle Queen,
Quote:
... match these phrases to the tenses


A. future continuous
B. future simple
C. present perfect simple
D. past simple
E. past perfect
F. past continuous
G. present simple
H. present perfect continuous

These, above, are mostly not tenses, PQ. The old traditional system was a mishmash of confusion. English only has two tenses, present and past, and it doesn't have a future tense.

Are you taking a TEFL/CELTA course right now?

@JTT,
No I'm not, but I shall be in August. I had to do the above exercises to get granted an interview with the company I want to do it with.

Not sure about the others. There are spoken that way but may not follow rules.
