Course Description

ESL Grammar 5 is the final course in our five-course ESL grammar series. It is the most advanced ESL grammar course offered, and prepares the English language learner for incorporating quite sophisticated structures into his or her English usage.

Lessons include instruction on the syntax of present perfect, future perfect, and future perfect progressive, past tense of modal verbs, subjunctive, noun clauses, appositives, omission of relative pronouns and relative clause reduction, and combining auxiliaries and modals. Semantic-focused lessons include instruction on wish, be supposed to, have/get something done, unless, see somebody do, and prefer/would rather. Each lesson contains a succinct presentation of the grammar concept, followed by an exercise intended to practice and reinforce the material just covered. Each lesson is also accompanied by an audio file that explains the grammatical structure verbally, to provide a secondary instructional path and increase the likelihood of greater comprehension and thus, full acquisition of the target structures.

Periodic exams test student knowledge of the structures just covered, and a final exam assesses the student's overall mastery of the topics. Two writing lessons briefly cover the writing process, and components of the 5-paragraph essay, which will help the English language learner write more effective English, even when a 5-paragraph essay is not the writing goal. Whether you are encountering these structures for the first time or just need to brush up on the finer points of English grammar, this course, with its straightforward written instruction, HD Videos and ample practice, will help you progress toward greater accuracy and fluency.
