I had a student ask me about I am sat yesterday. They thought it was incorrect but have heard it many times. They had thought about it (which was great) and concluded it was is am are + past simple. I am sat. I said I would explain it next week.
Considering they are only 11 years old and EFL, would one of you help with an easy explanation!
It would be appreciated.

Thanks Raymott. I am aware of the correct tense but sometimes find it hard to try and explain to kids with virtually no comprehension in a upbeat non-boring way- hence I end up here for help! This bit is excellent and they'll get this I hope!
you cannot "then add whatever further tense you like to it"
I'll put it over in a jovial way to the whole class and exagerate with a silly WB example consisting of about 5 tenses added on the end that you cannot use!
