Dear Students,

Grammar is worth 6% of your final grade. The Accuracy Exam, which is a 60 multiple-choice test at the end of the term, is worth 8%. In Level 4, you are responsible for learning the grammar structures below.

In order to make learning grammar more exciting, you will learn grammar by teaching it to each other. What does this mean?? This means that each week, working in pairs, you will present a grammar structure to your classmates.

You can do the presentation any way that you like. For example, you can watch some videos on Youtube (just Google the grammar structure and you will get lots of hits for videos). Then, once you think you understand the structure well enough then you can put together your own presentation however you like. The main goal is that your classmates understand and, ideally, they will have some kind of practice or opportunity to prove that they understand what you taught them.

Near the end of the course I will give you some Accuracy Exam practice that will help you prepare for the final exam.

For the 4% of your grade, you will give each other grades.

If you have any questions feel free to ask me anytime.

Good luck and have fun! :-)

Mr Van
