Tense Buster is an ESL program which focuses on helping students improve their reading, writing, listening, speaking, vocabulary and grammar skills in 5 levels (beginner - advanced).

Tense Buster covers 33 aspects of the English language effectively and enjoyably through presentations, practice exercises, rules, tests and learner training tips. Students learn how to ask questions, make comparisons, and report on what they've heard, in addition to learning how to describe past, present and future events.

Each unit begins with a presentation of a grammar topic based on a dialogue, a newspaper article, a radio broadcast or an extract from a story, where learners are encouraged to form theories about how the grammar works. Next come concept checking questions focusing on key areas of difficulty, and a grammar rule. Students move on to practice and testing activities in which the language is contextualised and key aspects of form and function are highlighted. Each unit includes a video-based pronunciation activity relating to an aspect of the grammar. Finally, each unit includes a vocabulary session and ends by suggesting extension activities. All activities include detailed feedback, one of the most popular features of the program.
