What happened?

By Terry Fredrickson

Here is an example of a very short video clip that you could easily make yourself with your class or your friends. This clip illustrates the use of the simple past in answer to the question what happened?. Listen carefully to the answer. What did the young man say?

A special thanks to the students from Rattana Bundit University who participated in the video. They were part of a group who visited our company this afternoon.

Showing off your own video

If you have a short video or an idea that you think would work to illustrate an English verb form, you can connect us through twitter or contact me directly at: fredricksont@bangkokpost.co.th

If you have a finished video, you can upload it to a site like Youtube so we can have a look at it. We can then embed it on a page on our site as well. Make a short lesson together with your video so users can understand the main point.

You can also point out videos that you find online that might be useful for understanding verbforms.
