I was wondering if there are any other teachers out there from northern England? (or anywhere else that has this problem)I don't use the past participle when I speak. I only found out when I done my CELTA course that this is (technically) wrong! Apparantly a lot of people from northern England do the same. I slipped up the other day with an upper int student who asked me what the past participle of 'lie' is - and I didn't know off the top of my head as I've never used it! Does anyone else have this or a similar problem?
