Grammar Clinic: Language toolkit

Holiday Intensive

Many native Anglophone speakers find learning a second language difficult – because they get stuck in lesson #1: what’s a verb? A noun? An adjective? An adverb? If you have found yourself in this situation, don’t be alarmed - you’re not the only one. Many Australians were not taught the rules of English grammar at school, making it much harder to learn that of a foreign language.

This one-day Grammar Clinic is taught entirely in English and is designed to give students a ‘language toolkit’ that will subsequently make it much easier to study French (or another foreign language). Students will be taught fundamental grammatical terms, such as: adverb, conjugation, direct object, past participle etc, and will be given examples and exercises to ensure their understanding. The teacher will assume no prior grammatical knowledge, so students will be encouraged to ask questions – no matter how basic they may seem!
