Despite many years of learning grammar, doing exercises and having errors corrected, our MA TESOL students from overseas report that they still have problems with grammar. They also say that they came to U.K. to learn ‘authentic grammar’.
What is ‘authentic grammar’? Is it the same as Pedagogic Grammar that has traditionally provided the structure of language syllabus, curriculum and coursebooks? What are the ways of learning it? What kinds of materials could facilitate learning authentic grammar?
In this session Hitomi Masuhara
will explore these questions and discuss ways of helping learners improve their accuracy in theoretically sound and enjoyable ways in the light of Second Language Acquisition studies.
