This class offers an introduction to the grammatical structures of American English with particular focus on patterns of grammar that are frequently troublesome for non-native English speakers. Students will learn the different parts of speech and how to cohesively craft them into proper sentence structure. Additionally, vocabulary will be introduced to expand the students’ capacity for communication. Students practice applying these structures through extensive speaking and writing and by completing a variety of exercises and writing brief essays. Students will work on and improve their English through reading and analyzing film screenplays. English grammar rules, verb tenses and forms, vocabulary usage, with exercises and word games will also be taught in this class.
