The course consists of two parts: (1) a theoretical part and (2) a practical part. In the theoretical part, the basic principles of present-day English grammar are explained with detailed descriptions and explanations of essential target features related nouns, adjectives, adverbs, pronouns, determiners, etc. In the practical part, the theoretical knowledge is put into practice by means of (contextualised) grammatical exercises and discussions of these exercises. In both the theoretical part and the practical parts, typical problems (of interference) for (Dutch-speaking) language learners of English are discussed. Because of time constraints in the lectures, you are regularly expected to prepare items for discussion before attending the lectures.
The theoretical and practical parts of this course are dealt with in lectures, in which target features/grammatical phenomena of present-day English are explained, using MS PowerPoint presentations.
