In Grammar for Language Teachers, students 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 language systems such as grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, discourse and language skills. Students 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 which they will be used in their current or future employment. The subject is suitable for students who specialise in language-related fields and are passionate about language teaching and learning.
