PAST PERFECT Englishgrammarsecrets

This is an activity that is designed for Upper Waystage students and above. It is to practice the Past Perfect. I have taken some exercises from the excellent site Englishgrammarsecrets. 

EXERCISE 1
http://www.englishgrammarsecrets.com/pastperfect/exercise1.html
This exercise is a mix and match exercise. You have to match a sentence that uses the past simple aith a sentence that uses the past perfect. This is a great exercise to demonstrate two things:

  1. The structure of the past perfect - we often use it with the past simple
  2. The reason we use it, to explain how two actions in the past link together

EXERCISE 2
This is a very modern and technological activity. However, the objective is simple, you just need to put the sentences using the past perfect in the correct order.


EXERCISE 3
This activity is very much like activity 1, but it also uses the past perfect in contracted form.


EXERCISE 4
This activity is a very simple one, you just have to fill in the gaps. it is a good way to practice using the past perfect in context. You need to look at the sentence and see which verb goes where.


EXERCISE 5 
This one is a little more difficult because you have to fill in the gaps, but you also have to write in the correct answer, so it involves a little more throught


If you do all of these activities it will give you a far better understanding of the Past Perfect.
