  • To help students revise and extend their understanding of how to use verbs in both written and spoken English.

Topics covered:

  • We will be looking at tenses, conditionals, modal verbs and passives.
  • As time will be limited, it will not be possible to cover any of these topics comprehensively, and we will therefore be focusing on some of the areas that most often cause students difficulty.
