Course Description

The course is designed to help the participants grasp foundational grammar through activities that provide a model on how to teach grammar. The course is self-paced, to allow the participants time to repeat activities and review knowledge. 

The course has 5 modules which take approximately 1 hour each and covers: 

a. Parts of Speech and beyond

b. Tenses in English

c. Future Forms

d. Modals and Functions

e. Conditionals

The course is helpful for teachers who are working with speakers of other languages, as the knowledge of grammar will help them correct errors and teach their learners the understanding of why they have made mistakes and how to avoid these in the future. The course also provides real-life contexts and activities based on ‘Test-Teach-Test' methodology, which helps participants review and improve knowledge and production.

Presenter

Barbara Munro

My career has been in teaching children and adults and developing courses, materials and training teachers. Since founding MTA in 2010 I have mainly been a tutor, training English language teachers. Since 2019 I have taken on the role as director of MTA which is now an online company Melbourne Training International. In the last two years I have gained confidence and expertise in managing a small business through a challenging time. My strengths lie in team building and networking as well as strategic planning while maintaining a personal interest in every individual we work with. My qualifications are Dip Ed, CELTA, Dip in TEFLA, CELTA Tutor & Assessor, Masters of Education. Keeping a life balance is also a great challenge - spending time with special people, enjoying the outdoors and having enough quiet in my mind to listen.
