Grammar For TEFL Teachers Course – €100 $113
We all believe that we know our own language but how much do we really understand? Most of us begin to question this knowledge when we begin teaching EFL. The ability to analyse language is an essential skill for every teacher.
Our course is not an abstract grammar course but rather sets out to show how language works with emphasis on what is important to EFL teachers.
The course aims to simplify the language and nobody should be intimidated by it. It is even suitable for non-native speakers. We hope the course will help you to feel at ease with the mechanics of English and equip you to deal with it in the classroom and answer student queries.
After successfully completing the course you will receive a certificate printed on aged paper, a brief assessment of your performance and areas of weakness, and a statement confirming that you have completed the course.
The course covers the important areas of grammar building up your knowledge gradually. We also look at common errors committed by students. In response to several requests there is an overview of the differences between US and British English.
Once you have enrolled you will be issued with a student number and assigned a tutor. Your first course materials will be emailed to you within a few minutes after this and you can commence the course at your own convenience.
Most people take this course through email attachments. However a printed version is available at extra cost.
