    Unhappy I Really Need Help PLease

    Hi I Really, Really, Really, Really need some help with my grammar, can anyone help me?? Pleaseeeeeee I have done the questions and answers but I’m not too sure if I am correct and would like some guidance.

    1.[/B][/B] At the beginning of a Monday class you asked the students ‘How did you spend your weekend?’ Here is how Rashid, one of your new students, answered the question:

    What conclusion can you make about Rashid’s grammatical needs?

    Choose one answer.

    a) He should learn the past simple irregular forms and he could benefit from a lesson on possessive adjectives.
    b) He should be taught to use the past simple tense in appropriate contexts. (I BELEVE THIS IS THE ANSWER)
    c) He could benefit from a lesson on the present perfect tense.



    2. What is the form of the past continuous tense?

    Choose one answer.

    Choose one answer.

    4. Your colleague has prepared a test to check student understanding of the difference between the present perfect and the past simple. Look at the first four sentences from the test and identify one problem.

    • my stepbrother won/has won the Golden Globe award yesterday.
    • I never ate/have never eaten sushi.
    • When my parents suddenly ____________ (come) home, my friends and I were taken by surprise.
    • Jerry worked/has worked as a bodyguard since he finished school. (I believe the answer is c)

    Choose one answer.

    a. Sentence 2 doesn’t use the tenses announced in the task.
    b. The sentences don’t provide any interesting context.
    c. Sentence 3 is not consistent with the task and the rest of the sentences.



    5. What is true about presenting new grammar?

    Choose one answer.

    a. New grammar has to be presented only through real contexts.

    Re: I Really Need Help PLease

    1. If you look at the first past tense he uses (I goed), he is using the tense appropriately in a context with a clear finished time period (Saturday), so his problem is not the tense but his knowledge of the forms that irregular verbs have. He is using the -ed suffix for all of the verbs except be. If he changed goed to went, it would work.

    2 The questions are different but your answers are the same- logically, they can't both be right.
