One of the hardest aspects about learning English is the grammar. It is a fundamental component of any language, but is extremely difficult when there are so many rules to follow and so many exceptions to these rules. Learning grammar in class is one thing, but how can we continue to improve our knowledge outside of class.
Introducing the Grammar workshop.
Every Thursday at 2pm, students can come together and focus on a specific grammatical topic. Verb tenses to conditionals, subject and objects to comparatives and superlatives. The one hour session covers all aspects of grammar.
Not only will you understand complex structures, but you will be learning in a fun environment with an experienced teacher.
There are a couple of useful things to remember when studying grammar, and these can also be applied when studying in class.
- Always write things down.
While it may be easy to simply take a photo of the information on the board or look at the overview in the back of the text book, writing down the information in your book will force you to remember and engage more within the exercises.
- Ask questions.
It can be intimidating to ask questions in class, especially when other students seem to comprehend what is being taught. However, more often that not, some students do not fully understand the material and are too shy to ask questions. By asking more questions in class, you are not only helping yourself, but your fellow classmates as well.
- Become familiar with verb forms
Do you know that there are different forms of verbs? From active to state verbs to past simple and past participle forms. Writing down and understanding the variations of these verbs is crucial to using grammatical tenses correctly and will ultimately help you in the long run.
We hope that you’ll attend one of the workshops and see how much fun grammar can be.
