Grammar: 3rd conditional

Grammar: The 3rd Conditional

The 3rd conditional is the only one that refers to the past. We use it to talk about past situations that can no longer be changed; hypothetical situations.  Practise using it here.

How to use the present perfect

Grammar: Uses of the Present Perfect

We look at the main uses of the present perfect tense: recent past with present result, experiences, and actions that started in the past and are still continuing now. 

Using the Passive

Grammar: Passive Forms

There are four main steps to consider when you want to use passive forms. Let’s revise the basics for changing active to passive & vice-versa.

Have something done

Grammar: ‘Have Something Done’

‘Have something done’ (the causative ‘have’) is another passive form. We use it when we arrange (and usually pay) for someone else to do something for us.

Use of language: functions and grammar

Use of Language: B1, B2 and C1

We look at the language you need to know at levels B1, B2 & C1, both in terms of functions (what you do with the language) and grammar (which structures you need to use).
