Course Description

This is a beginning grammar and writing course for learners of the English language.  This course is Level 1.  In Level 1 grammar, we cover present simple and past simple tenses. 

This course also teaches you how to put verbs together, introduces the –ing form and gives a context for its use, and shows you how be verbs are very different from all other kinds of verbs.  We discuss plurals, a/an articles, adjectives, subject pronouns and possessive adjectives, demonstratives this/that/these/those, prepositions of place and time, can, wh- questions, and adverbs of frequency and their proper placement.  We also discuss prepositional phrases, subjects, verbs, objects, and complements.

This course will also cover irregular spellings in plurals, in gerunds, and in past tense formations, as well as irregular plurals and verbs.  The writing component covers simple sentences (S-V-O) and compound sentences (S-V-O, [coordinating conjunction] S-V-O). This course consists of 33 lessons with illustrations, plenty of exercises, section exams, audio and visual aids, as well as a final exam.

Each lesson includes an HD Video to help you better understand the ideas and rules of the lesson, and help you with your listening comprehension and your pronunciation. With successful completion of this course, you will have a strong foundation in English.  Your language will be limited, but you will be able to say most things you need to say.   If English is new for you or if you need a solid refresher on the basics, this is an excellent course for you.
