Subjects covered include:

– basic labels used in grammar – noun, verb, adjective etc – what they mean, how to use them and how to make an impression with them
– structure of sentences – subject, verb, object etc.
– tenses – past, present, future and their variations, as well as active and passive voice
– common mistakes, why they are made and how to avoid them
– how to use a dictionary to help you with grammar.

At the end of this course you will be able to:

– identify easily the names of all the parts of speech: noun, verb etc, and their function in sentences
– notice mistakes of grammar in sentences, understand what is wrong and make corrections
– analyse sentences, that is, to examine the structure of sentences (a bit like looking at an X-ray, rather than a photograph of a person).

Note: very little punctuation is covered in this course as there is a separate punctuation course available at different times of the year.

Please bring along a pen and paper to each session.

Anyone who needs to improve their grammar skills for work, study or writing.
