I studied both the 30hr – TOEIC Preparation Qualification and the 30 hour Advanced Grammar for English Teachers Course. I found them both very interesting, comprehensive and they provided valuable insight and guidance into these topics. Thank you for this opportunity.

Advanced Grammar for English Teachers

Modules One-Two:

Module One: How are Words Formed?

Do you ever think about how words, or parts of words can be joined together to change the meaning or to make brand new words. Learn how words enter the English language and how they change over time so that you can share this knowledge with your students.

Module Two: How to Arrange Words into Sentences

Did you know that there are around 171,000 words in the English language? Don’t worry, you’ll only be asked to teach a few hundred of those! In this module, you will learn about building words into sentences and be ready to help students to create their own grammatically correct statements, whether they are simple, compound or complex.

Modules Three-Four:

Module Three: Time to Talk Tenses

Were you taught that there were three tenses: Past, Present and Future? Would it surprise you to know that there are in fact 12 (or 13, depending on who you ask) tenses in the English language? Spend time getting to grips with this valuable aspect of language teaching skill. Your future-teacher-self (and students) will thank you for it.

Module Four: How to Teach Advanced Grammar

Many entry level TEFL jobs want you to focus on conversational English teaching. This is a great way to get first-time experience as a teacher and it usually means less time spent on grammatical theory. But, there will come a time when you want to boost your earning power and be hired to know your present continuous from your present simple tense. And, be able to explain it well to students. By the end of this module you will be confident in your grammar teaching skills plus have access to a long list of ready-to-roll activities for your grammar classes.

Questions and Answers

How do you teach grammar?

There are many methods of English grammar teaching. These include:

  • Inductive Teaching – presenting learners with several examples of grammar concepts, with little or no explanation. The emphasis is on the learner to recognize and understand the rule featured.
  • Deductive Teaching – an in-depth explanation is given to learners by teachers before putting the theory into practice.
  • Interactive Teaching – perfect for kinesthetic learners, this method involves the use of games and props to bring action to the grammatical concept in question. 
  • Diagramming Sentences – effective for visual learners, this process includes visually mapping sentence structures. 

Learning through Writing – learners are encouraged to read externally to recognise grammar rules in articles and books etc.

What’s the difference between deductive and inductive approaches?

A deductive method involves learners being given an in-depth explanation of the grammar rule theory by the teacher, which is then applied to specific examples and the learning is reinforced through practice and sample exercises. 

An inductive approach by contrast involves the learners recognizing, detecting, or spotting patterns and figuring out a ‘rule’ for themselves before they put that concept into practice.

Teaching grammar with PPP?

Under the communicative teaching approach, teaching grammar in the PPP model involves three key stages: 

  • Presentation – teacher presents the target language
  • Practice – learners communicate the language in a controlled practice activity 
  • Production – learners use the target language more freely and in a personalized way

Is teaching grammar really important?

Grammar is a vital part of language learning and should be considered important. It’s worth noting that grammar is a challenge for learners and teachers alike at times. Understanding grammar is a complex part of gaining English fluency. Teachers should aim to make grammar tuition as engaging and enjoyable as possible for learners.

Some teaching roles are purely based on conversational lessons, however you, as the teacher must have a strong grasp of word formation, phonology and the parts of speech to be as effective as possible.

What order should you teach grammar?

Typically the parts of speech to teach first are nouns and verbs. The simple tense is also a good jumping off point. Young learners, for example, can easily master basic grammar concepts if it is presented in a simplified order, with plenty of practice.

How can you be a grammar teacher?

There are no prerequisite qualifications to become an ESL grammar teacher, however you should hold an internationally recognised TEFL qualification and have some teaching experience. 

Taking a professional development course in teaching grammar will help you understand how to be most successful at educating your grammar-focused class.

What are important grammar topics?

Topics of importance in English grammar include the 8 parts of speech: 

  • Nouns 
  • Pronouns 
  • Verbs 
  • Adjectives
  • Adverbs
  • Prepositions
  • Conjunctions 
  • Interjections

Alongside these, articles, question formation, subject-verb agreement rules and conditionals are also important grammar components to consider.

In my case, SHAUNA HURLEY was not only super helpful but also very knowledgeable & professional! It makes such a difference to your self-esteem when someone fights for your academic progress! SHAUNA took great pride in helping me with my issue/problem efficiently & successfully! Sometimes both Medical & I.T. issues can/will hinder my positive & gradual progress in my selected courses. With agents like SHAUNA HURLEY, your problems will go bye-bye very quickly & efficiently! (This much I can promise you!) As usual & as stated before I'm very happy to say out loud that I am proud to be a member of the International TEFL family!

I was very pleased with the 10 Hour Classroom Methodology Course I took. The instructor, Michelle Kaufman, was exceptional. Michelle made... everyone feel comfortable right away. She was extremely knowledgeable about teaching English and her experience showed when answering questions and giving advice. Michelle taught us by "doing", meaning she had us do a typical lesson both in English and then in another language to show us the steps involved in an online lesson. We, the students, were given all the information and encouragement to create our own lessons and present them to our group. Thank you Michelle for creating an inclusive atmosphere and sharing your knowledge. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is planning or thinking about teaching online.read more
