Welcome back to ESL class! This past week we watched 2 videos about creating mini-goals for improving our English in 2019. If you keep your goals short, you are more likely to reach them. We also wrote sentences in future tense. You can review the videos below.
Some people make financial goals for a new year. Here is a budget worksheet to help you keep your money organized so you can save for future goals such as traveling, education, buying a home, etc.
Make a Budget
This week in class we will begin learning about the present perfect tense. I have created 2 Quizlets for you to practice the simple past tense and past participles with irregular verbs.
Past Participles A-K
Past Participles L-Z
I believe I can Fly
Please watch the video below to learn more about the present perfect tense and when we use it. (The second video is in British English, but spoken slowly).
