This is an excellent book for language tutors. 'Teaching Tenses' unravels the diffences between the tenses very clearly, explaining by succinct definitions, clear examples and helpful line diagrams where necessary. The book identifes the big challenges with 'tenses' that English-language learners face. Then Rosemarie Aitken is extremely focussed in addressing these issues. She uses well-observed examples and well-considered explanations; all the time fully cognizant of (a) common learner errors and (b) the teacher's need for short punchy explanations!
'Teaching Tenses' is very comprehensive. From novice teachers to qualified and experienced tutors, all who enjoy language and have the responsibility and privilege to 'teach English' to those whose mother-tongue is not English, will find this book invaluable; an education to the teacher, and, more importantly, a comprehensive and very practical quide to teaching.
