While this Language Awareness and Grammar course was prepared to accompany our TEFL course for those who are training to become English language teachers, it actually can benefit anyone including those who are studying English as a foreign language.
The TEFL course is a teaching methodology programme, not a language course; therefore, there will be no explicit grammar teaching during the course. There will however be references to grammar terminology and concepts throughout the course, particularly in the Teaching Grammar Module. The Language Awareness & Grammar course will give you an overview of grammar and help you understand the important grammar points in order to prepare you for the course.
Starting with this course is not mandatory; however we recommend completing it prior to the start of the Teaching Grammar module. There will be no reference to the Language Awareness & Grammar Module during this course, but the assumption is that you will have completed it.

- To equip you with English grammar knowledge
- To prepare you for the Teaching Grammar Module in our main TEFL Course, in which you will learn how to apply your knowledge of grammar to teaching it in a communicative way
