Why Take The Foundations of English Grammar Course?
Even though there are over 380 million native English speakers around the globe, there are far fewer that understand the how and why of English grammar.
This course will build your explicit knowledge of English grammar from the basic building blocks through the tenses and aspects needed to fully understand how the language works.
This course is intended to teach you, the teacher, the foundations of English grammar which will allow you to better instruct your students in their learning of English.
Please note, this course doesn’t teach you how to teach English, rather it introduces and builds upon the main grammar points you will be expected to teach in the foreign language classroom:
- Prepare yourself for the EFL classroom. Our TEFL course prepares you to be an incredible EFL teacher, but to be truly confident in the classroom, you will need to be prepared to teach grammatical concepts in any situation. This course will enable you to do that in just four weeks.
- Enhance your understanding of English. English grammar is challenging for native speakers along with those learning the language. By taking this course, you will jump start your feelings of success with your teaching practice and eliminate your need to teach yourself through websites and other resources. In FEG, you will learn from the best instructors at ITA with a passion for grammar.
- Experience what it means to study English. Put yourself in your students’ shoes for a while and truly dive into being a student of a language. Even though you are likely a native, or very proficient speaker of English, immerse yourself in how to learn language. This course will use teaching methods found in many EFL classrooms for grammar instruction, but it will be centered more around the metalanguage (or explanations) used to discuss grammatical constructions.
