For advanced ESL students. Must be willing and able to have basic conversations in English and not be limited to yes/no responses. Must be able to express likes and dislikes, talk about yourself, your culture, and work with different groups of students. Grammatical errors are okay and welcome.

Do English prepositions such as on and at, up and above, to and from confuse you? Do you frequently omit or misuse articles such as a, an or the? How do you use modals (can and could and would and may and might) in conversation? Do you wonder how to use quantifiers such as much and many, some, and few correctly?

If you said yes to any of these questions, then this fun interactive conversation class is for you.

This class will look at some of the most common grammatical errors ESL students make in conversation: modals and conditionals, prepositions, gerunds, and infinitives, articles, determiners, quantifiers. Through structured activities and games, students will work in pairs and/or groups to identify errors and practice the correct form.

On the last day of class, each student then will incorporate all the grammar topics learned and give a presentation.

No textbook required.
