Descriptions

Verbs Module -  four 50-minute sessions, once per week

Through discussions and exercises, the students will learn how to identify verbs, correct subject-verb agreement errors, use correct verb tenses, and practice proofreading skills.

Here's what students who completed the Verbs Module said:

  • "Usually we do not learn about verbs because there are so many things to learn. So this course was good because I could focus on one thing."
  • "It was very helpful. I thought I knew verbs but there was more I didn’t know."
  • "I could learn well because this is a small group."

 

Vocabulary Module - four 50-minute sessions, once per week

In this module students will read short stories and articles that will introduce them to new vocabulary.  Students will practice using dictionaries to learn the meanings and word forms of new words.  Through exercises and discussion, students will learn to use new vocabulary in sentences as well as discuss their understanding of the stories.  Students will also learn and practice annotation skills.

Here's what students who completed the Vocabulary Module said:

  • "The small group really helps!"
  • "I really liked it, and I think it should be required for every English class."

 We look forward to working with you!
