In Grammar for Language Teachers, you will explore the systems of the English language from a pedagogical perspective. The knowledge gained in the subject cements teachers’ understanding of how the English language works and advances their capacity to teach essential aspects of its systems. The subject focuses on developing the pedagogical knowledge necessary for teaching grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, discourse and language skills. You will examine differences between the pedagogical and non-pedagogical grammars, learn how to find and evaluate web-based resources for teachers and develop teaching portfolios for use in your current or future employment. The subject is suitable for students who specialise in language-related fields or are simply interesting in languages and how they work.
