About this course:

The Teaching Grammar Communicatively MOOC is provided by World Learning, as part of the American English (AE) E-Teacher Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and administered by FHI 360. In this practice-oriented course, participants will explore how to adapt grammar instruction to meet their students’ needs. They will also focus on integrating grammar instruction with teaching language skills, learn about task-based grammar learning and evaluate different error correction strategies. Participants will discuss different challenges their learners may have with learning grammar, and discover how they can adapt grammar instruction to improve students’ fluency and accuracy. Participants who complete all required activities with a score of 70% or higher will receive a digital badge and certificate of participation.
