A placement test is required for this course. By learning grammar, we can understand how sentences are constructed and how to construct sentences. We will do some exercises to check the understanding and to apply the grammatical knowledge to four skills: reading, listening, writing and speaking. The exercises will also help to develop vocabulary.
This class is designed to achieve Educational Goals 1, 2, and 3 of the General Basic Subjects.
The purpose of this course is to enable students to learn elementary level grammar to improve English proficiency.
