Tense Buster is a stimulating English language program for ESL learners — and it’s very popular. Users in schools and libraries ran over 360,000 sessions last year, with an average time of over four hours per user. The British Council, the world’s leading English language provider, adopted Tense Buster for all its centres, describing the program as "very popular with students, attractive and easy to use".
Tense Buster tackles 33 key grammar areas, from Elementary level all the way through to Advanced, making it useful for the whole spectrum of learners of English. The program includes presentation activities, practice exercises, pronunciation work and progress tests. It's highly interactive and provides feedback on learners' mistakes.
Direct access. The brand new library version gives users two options. The first is simply to click and access the whole program.
Level test. Alternatively, they can take a quick level test by inputting their email address. The users will receive their result after the test.
Email notification. They will then receive a link to a new unit at their level every week for six weeks. They can also go back to units they have completed.
Next level. At the end of the process, they can choose to delete their email address and exit the sytem, or to progress to the next level.
