Formation of the interrogative and Negative sentences using the complete verb form based approach: Class room procedures
M Raghu Rama Seshu, S. K. Sheela
In most ESL/EFL class room contexts teaching the formation of Tenses and the interrogative and negative sentences using the various forms of the verbs becomes a lot difficult task. Most of the ESL and EFL learners find it difficult to understand the formation of tenses and apply them in their day to day interaction. Similarly, formation of the interrogative and negative verbs and their application is somewhat difficult for the learners. It becomes all the more difficult for them to use the non finites in the formation of tenses and the finites in the formation of the interrogative and negative sentences. The reason for the difficulty in forming the interrogative and negative verb forms using ‘not’ could be attributed to the learners’ lack of understanding of the all the forms of the English verb. As far as traditional teaching is concerned most teachers follow the three form --‘Do—did—done, go—went –gone’ approach to teaching the English verb. The effectiveness of this approach is doubtful as other forms are not discussed. Hence, most students fail to apply the verb forms in their correct tenses and contexts. This has become a concern not only for the teacher but also for the ESL and EFL learner, who has to work in a global business scenario after his education. This inadequacy results in poor and embarrassing work place communication.
