This course is designed for future primary school teachers to further their studies in English grammar, vocabulary and skills. It focuses on an understanding of grammar as a functional use of language which creates rhetorical effects. In this view, writers make active choices that influence their readers just as teachers make active choices about the language they use with their students. Special attention is given to applying prior studies in linguistics and pedagogy as well as to developing students as reflective, self-directed learners. The course also provides opportunities to try out English teaching ideas in team teaching practices and reflect on the process.
