This course is designed for the future primary school teachers to assist their study of English grammar. Competent speakers of English do not only have to master vocabulary, they also need to know how to combine words into larger units, such as clauses and sentences. This course focuses the structure of words (morphology) and the principles of English sentence structure (syntax). The emphasis is on the meaning and the use of the grammatical forms. Special attention is given to those points which are often a problem for students. In addition, we will explore different approaches to teaching English grammar to young learners.
