Rules of English™: A Quick Revision of English Grammar
This 2-day intensive programme will help participants to refresh their memory on the key elements of English grammar so that they may avoid major errors in speech and writing.
This programme is very intensive and will cover all 10 parts of speech. Each module will consist of a brief overview of one or more parts of speech before narrowing the focus to a specific area where mistakes are commonly made. Plenty of exercises will follow. This is to ensure the participants make real progress in actual English usage instead of merely gaining head knowledge.
