Grammar is the basic framework and foundation for learning English as a second or foreign language. Without knowing the rules of grammar, using English language to communicate meanings precisely and concisely would be challenging. This course makes grammar learning much simpler and easier for learners of different age groups and language competencies by using traditional and innovative methods of “Prescriptive and Functional Grammar”. It will enable ESL/EFL teachers and students to construct English sentences accurately and fluently and communicate meanings efficiently and effectively. Applying grammatical rules correctly facilitates communications, creates meaningful texts and powerful rhetoric for academic and professional purposes.
