Abstracts
The aim of this paper is to suggest a possible order of teaching English tenses in Croatian primary schools. After a short introduction in which we explain why such an order might be needed in the Croatian context, and after a brief look at possible foundations in scientific research, we review grammar teaching from the methodological aspect and discuss the notion of pedagogical grammar. We also bring a summary of grammar content provided in the current primary and secondary school curricula. In the main part of the paper, we analyse the tenses in terms of complexity and communicative potential and suggest an order of teaching. In the end, we offer suggestions to teachers and textbook authors regarding the presentation and teaching of grammar content in primary school.
