Question:

One question I have received quite often from my students is 'What is the difference between present perfect and simple past?'

Inactive
Cheryl Q.
Answer:

The present perfect is used when an event happened in the past and continues to the present or has an impact on the present. For example, I have lived in Australia for 5 years. This means that I moved to Australia about 5 years ago and am still living there. The simple past is used when an event happened and is completed in the past. For example, I lived in Australia for 5 years. This means that I moved to Australia about 5 years ago and am no longer living there.

What are your lessons like?

Cheryl Q.
Answer:

I focus on personalizing each lesson for every student. I also provide a set of notes for each lesson as well. My teaching style is to get the student to maximize their time in every lesson by practicing as much as possible. We will cover all the four different skills but with a focus on the area that students are weaker in or need to focus on due to various reasons, such as exams or other purposes.

Question:

How do I practice for the IELTS speaking exam?

Cheryl Q.
Answer:

A lot of students think that using 'high level' vocabulary will help them get better results in their speaking exam. I always tell my students to be careful with the use of less common vocabulary. Words could be considered synonyms but are only used in different contexts or sentence structures. Thus, we need to ensure that we use vocabulary accurately in our speaking. For example, one of my students was trying to explain how to play the game, Tetris. She stated that we have to delete the blocks. However, we cannot use 'delete' in this situation as this word is usually only used in printed or written text. In this situation, a more suitable word would be 'remove'.
