ESL 022 Grammar II
Students will begin examining grammar academically in relationship to speaking, reading, and writing. After reviewing present and past verb tenses, perfect tenses are practiced. Previously learned grammar concepts such as count and noncount nouns, the definite article, modals, the future, prepositions, comparatives and superlatives, and gerunds and infinitives will be looked at more thoroughly. Students become familiar with and comfortable using new grammar concepts related to pronouns, adverbs, and phrasal verbs. The dependent clause is introduced on a sentence structure level. Students begin looking for patterns in grammar.
