ESL Grammar Skills Level 3
with CEU Certificate*
This course is third in a series of 5 ESL grammar courses. It builds on levels 1 and 2, and continues grammatical instruction grounded in the foundation offered in those courses.
ESL 3 is a conceptually rich course. It contains instruction on passive voice, present perfect, relative clauses and the imperative. Further, it offers lessons on participle and gerund usage in various constructions. Lessons related to the present perfect include still/yet/already, and for/since along with targeted practice on distinguishing between correct usage of the present perfect and the past simple (these are very important differences in English).
Presentation of phrasal verbs is continued from level 2, and distinctions between like/as and a(n)/the are offered. Additional topics include I want you to… and I told you to…, quite/pretty/fairly/rather, so/such, tag questions, and use of auxiliary verbs for conversational brevity. Because of the conceptual weight presented by the present perfect, passive voice and relative clauses, writing units extend previous discussions of compound and complex sentences and subordinating conjunctions.
Each of the 22 units of this course contains a clear, simple, and well-organized presentation of material followed by lesson exercises to reinforce the lesson content. Several exams test student knowledge along the way, and a final exam score determines whether the learner is ready for the next level. Each unit is accompanied by a brief audio recording which presents the material verbally, offering a secondary presentation of the material to aid in student comprehension.
Whether you're addressing this material for the first time or have been speaking English for a while, ESL 3 provides an excellent presentation of some of the most challenging concepts in English grammar, and is well worth your efforts as you progress with your English learning.
