Past perfect continuous lesson plan Lesson length : 45 mins Aim : to review the use of the present perfect continuous with for and since to talk about an action or situation that began in the past and continues now. Preparation : n Make one large copy of ‘Julia on the phone’ (see end of plan) to use as a visual aid at the start of the lesson. Activity : Present perfect continuous . 1. GRAMMAR REVIEW 1 : Present perfect continuous for actions and situations that started in the past and continue until now n Show a mobile phone, if you have one with you.

(She was talking on the phone.) Finally, ask How can we put all of that information in one sentence? and see if you can elicit this target sentence: Julia has been talking on the phone for an hour.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
