This Revision Bite will give you practice in using a variety of tenses in your presentation.

Using a variety of tenses in your presentation

In your presentation it is important to vary the tenses if you are aiming for a Grade C or above. Listen to Hayley's presentation, which lasts about two minutes. Note how she uses different tenses when talking about the same topic.

Most of the presentation is in the present tense, but see if you can spot when Hayley uses the perfect tense (three times), the future tense (twice), imperfect tense (twice) and the conditional (once).
