English learners often confuse the meaning of different tenses, words or phrases.
For each example below, describe the difference in meaning. Then provide some technique(s) (apart from just explaining the difference) that you could use to help the students understand the difference:
a) I don’t feel like going to work.
b) I don’t like going to work.
a) This is a temporary feeling, maybe as you wake up in the morning.
b) This is more of a permanent state – you feel like this every day.
For sentence a) I could show a picture of a person with a smile on Monday, Tuesday but on Wednesday show a person with a frown. Then to compare, for sentence b) show the person with a frown on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. I could then ask: Which one happens every day? (b)/ sometimes?(a)
Change the given sentence and then provide the rule/ structure (not the meaning) for that new sentence:
This is Past Simple: ‘The company held an important meeting.’
Make it Past Continuous and write the rule/ structure (not Meaning) for the Past Continuous:
The company was holding an important meeting.
S + was/ were + ing (present participle)
Look at these word families and choose the correct pattern (from the options below) based on syllables and word stress:

preference (n) = Xxx
