Understanding Grammar - Past Simple v Past Perfect

Mar 02, 2018, 10:15 AM

In this week's Premier Skills English Podcast, Jack and Rich talk about a specific structure that learners often find difficult: the past perfect. They look at how we create the past perfect when we use it in real language and contrast its use with the past simple. They introduce the language using simple dialogues to help you understand the language in context and then give you some advice about when to use the past perfect. Further down the page, there are a number of explanations, the transcript, interactive activities, a quiz and a discussion to help you understand. Your task is to use the past perfect in three different situations. Don't forget to listen to the end of the podcast because we also have a new football phrase for you to guess. Enjoy! #Grammar #LearnEnglish
