This specialization course aims to increase your knowledge of the English language - in particular the more complex grammar problems facing teachers and students alike. The modules covered will provide practical knowledge for ESL/EFL teachers. Throughout this discussion, examples are provided to show how the material presented relates to common student errors. An equally important goal of this discussion is that teachers gain greater insight into the heart of the grammatical system of English. Doing so can help teachers to understand their subject matter more deeply and recognize that there is simplicity among all the complexity of English.
We have developed the Advanced Grammar Seminar in response to the student requests and feedback. Students will attain a higher level of proficiency with both English grammar and how to teach it. These skills will prove invaluable to TEFL Institute students whether they are interested in teaching in Latin America, Asia or Europe.
This course is conducted in TEFL Institute's virtual learning environment. Students complete a series of modules consisting of reading materials, assignments and quizzes focused on teaching advanced grammar. Students will receive advice and feedback from their instructor throughout the course.
