Upper-Intermediate English tenses test

Average: 2.7 (102 votes)

Today's lesson is for high / upper intermediate English students.

Time to take a careful look at the structure of some English sentences. This exercise will help you review English tenses. As I mentioned already, read the sentences carefully for clues on which tense should be used. There's also a phrasal verb question in there, too (see number 3).

Make sure you leave a comment letting us know how you did and questions if you need help. Always reply to the comments which you know the answers to. Be kind - help your classmates!

Good luck, everyone.
