Grappling with Grammar

Grammar gaffes can make one look foolish – and you realise this when you read a circular from school addressed to the Dear Parent’s.

Whether it is agonising over the intricacies of apostrophes, or juggling between the 16 different tense aspects, English grammar can be tricky business.

The Grappling with Grammar programme gives you a practical and comprehensive perspective of English Grammar. The focus of this program is accurate usage of structures and minimising errors, rather than definitions and rules.

Terrific takeaways

  • A judicious mix of controlled activities (fill in the gaps and multiple choice), guided writing, and, free activities like discussions, narrations and creative writing.
  • Handy notes on grammar guidelines, popular usage and common errors.

WHAT NOT TO DO WHEN LEARNING ENGLISH!

I am sure that you are always on the look-out for strategies and tips and tricks to help you master English. But have you ever thought of what you should NOT do when learning a new language?

I got myself a Language Makeover

  • As an architect by profession, I had managed to speak English (ESL) all my life without giving too much attention to the grammatical errors and often, incorrect pronunciations I had in my speech. At the age of 64, I had almost believed that there was no turning back for me to improve my basics. But then, I got in contact with Nazreen. She believed that I could learn and that age should not be an excuse. After several Skype sessions with her, I have significantly improved my understanding of English grammar and corrected much of my pronunciation. I am even surprised that some of the words which were difficult for me to pronounce as a child, are now possible for me to speak correctly. If you are looking for an experienced and professional English teacher, Nazreen is the right person. Not only does she design each lesson as per the individual’s need, but also makes learning happen in a friendly atmosphere. I feel confident and more committed than before to improve my English. However, my search for a good teacher has ended. It’s amazing and, a lifetime experience to learn from Nazreen - an outstanding educator. Thank you for your efforts and patience!

I had the good fortune of seeing her in action in designing and delivering English language curriculum for our trainees / employees (all of them with basic proficiency in spoken & written English). Her technical expertise, exceptional work ethic and inspirational leadership were the key in keeping the learners motivated through the duration of training - resulting in each one of them improving by leaps & bounds in their English language communication abilities. We are extremely thankful to her for being so relentless in her efforts. She is an absolute master as English language trainer - and is highly efficient across all types of learners.
