    My Moving Words methodology, using creative movement and dance to teach language, is particularly effective for presenting abstract concepts and difficult tenses like the present perfect. I get students to agree on an area in the room to represent the past, one to represent the present and one to represent the future. For a sentence like ‘I have visited my uncle only once this week’, they physically move from the past ‘zone’ to the present ‘zone’ while saying the sentence, to show an unfinished action that has a connection with the present. In contrast, for ‘I visited my uncle twice last week’, they say this while standing in the past ‘zone’ to embody the sense of a finished action.
