Enter the classroom with confidence by refreshing your knowledge of core English grammar concepts and learning strategies to effectively teach grammar to your students.
Even for teachers who speak English fluently, explaining grammar terms, structures, and rules can be challenging! Grammar Advisor™ is a 40-hour, accredited certification that provides an overview of the grammar you’ll need to know when teaching ESL/EFL, such as verb tenses, parts of speech, sentence structure, and others.
Through interactive activities, videos, downloads, and discussion boards, you’ll see grammar in context and learn engaging, real-world methods to teach complex concepts to your students. For additional support, you can even access Grammar Advisor for a full year, including the interactive “Ask the Grammar Advisor” feature.
