Teaching Helping Verbs


When teaching helping verbs (also known as auxiliary verbs), you should make sure that:
  1. Your students study them in the correct order

  2. They actually understand the different meanings of each helping verb

  3. They get enough practice for each helping verb and each combination of helping verbs

Really Learn English (this website) has created a special e-mail course that will help you achieve just that.


What the English Helping Verbs Course includes:

  • What are the helping verbs?

  • Lessons on the primary English helping verbs: be, do and have

  • Thorough, fully illustrated, step-by-step explanations

    English Helping Verbs Course, Sample Lesson

  • Helping verbs examples

  • Sentences with helping verbs

  • Helping verbs worksheets

  • Answer keys for the worksheets


Other subjects that the 
English Helping Verbs Course covers:

  • The present progressive tense
  • The present perfect and perfect progressive tenses

  • The subject and object of a sentence

  • Active and passive sentences

  • Negative sentences and questions

  • And much much more

Now, the course won't teach your students instead of you. It should, however, greatly assist you in teaching helping verbs.

It provides a great set of tools you can use with any student.

The course is delivered using weekly e-mails, so you will have a new lesson each week. There are 15 lessons in total.


How much will it cost?

Currently, it is not available outside the English Short Stories package.

But upon purchasing it, you can get the course with no extra costs. (In other words, as a free bonus!)

Just make sure to put in your correct e-mail to get all the lessons.

Do keep in mind that I may cancel this free bonus at any time, though.
