All you have to do is

  1. select the number of teams (1 if it’s just you), and click “Go Play.”

  2. You’ll see 5 categories:

  3. -Name the Tense – For this category you need to use the form or function given in the clue to name the correct verb tense.

    -Tell the Form- In this category, you need to explain how to form the verb tense given in the clue.

    -Explain the Function/Use – You need to tell the rules for when and why we use the given tense in English. The number in [brackets] tells you how many different uses or functions there are.

    -Give an Example Sentence 1 and 2 – These categories require you to provide a sentence that uses the tense in the clue.

  4. Choose a point value under the category you want to try.

  5. The last two categories let you be creative. That means there is not one right answer, but you can see possible answers by clicking “Answer” and compare them to your answer.

  6. After you look at the answer, click “Adjust Scores” to give yourself some points. It always feels good to get a reward for your hard work!

  7. “Home” will take you back to select another category and point value. Repeat until you’re done.

How did you do? Leave a comment with your score after you finished the game so that we can compare. You can also leave a comment in order to (1) ask a question about something you didn’t understand or (2) share one of your creative sentences from the last two categories. That way, you can see if your unique sentence was correct or not.
