The focus is on teaching past participles in the students' practice. The research included sixty students in the TOEFL Preparation class from international undergraduate and postgraduate programs. Twelve students were chosen as the experimental group's sample and twelve students as the control group. Cluster random sampling was used to collect the sample.
