This book is in fact the new edition of A Grammar Course for TEFL Certificate. The change of title is to reflect a completely revamped work and serve a wider readership. The commendations for the first edition have justified my main main objectives: to present the essentials of tesol grammar in a concise and user-friendly way, making them comprehensible in a short period and easily locatable during lesson planning. Like the first edition, this book has been written mainly for participants on a teacher training course, but with the increase in content it should also serve well as a reference for practising teachers. It presupposes a native-speaker or near native-speaker level of competence in English, but takes nothing for granted regarding the reader's knowledge of grammar. It gets straight to the point, knowing what the teacher needs and not wasting space with what they don't. I am cognizant of the value of coursebooks and recommend their use to varying degrees, hence the many extracts from coursebooks in this publication. But besides the coursebook there is a growing popularity of the use of authentic materials, games, instant lessons, etc, so the teacher now has to operate with more unpredictable language in the classroom. Today's language learner is sophisticated and demands both communicative activities and competent grammar explanation. Where the matching tasks in this book are used in tutorials the tutor should cut out and mount/laminate the sections for group/pair work where possible. The tutor may also project the task/answer. Copyright is waived for such tutor activities but I would stress that no further copying is allowed under copyright legislation and it is strongly recommended that each course participant should have a copy of this book. It must be stressed that the activities in this book are designed for teachers, not for language learners. The extracts from ELT coursebooks and the Teaching Notes are intended to show the difference between what the teacher should know and what and how they should teach. I would here like to include a few points on what I believe an English language teacher should know about grammar and its teaching: 1. The teacher should know the terminology, because it is very difficult to explain a grammar rule without knowing the names of the items affected by that rule. 2. The teacher should know the structure rules, simply because most learners are comparing those of English with their own while they learn, and clear explanation should be available to the student on request. 3. The teacher should know how to fit the semantic (meaning) with the grammatical, i.e. we don't just explain the what of the structure, but also the why, the use/function of the structure. The good teacher knows how to teach the 'feeling' for the language besides the structure of it. 4. The teacher should know when to teach grammar, better said, exploit grammar to aid the learning of the language. This involves knowing whether their students are the type who use grammar as a 'mental framework' for language acquisition (this sounds abstract but this type is evidenced by constant questioning about grammatical points, often consequently drawing accusations of testing the teacher). It also involves waiting till learners become curious about a grammar point and being able to present a grammar lesson on that. 5. The teacher should know when not to teach grammar, that is, not to present grammar for grammar's sake. Primarily the teacher is a teacher of English communication, not of English grammar, and these in effect are two different subjects. Native speakers never had to learn (consciously) the grammar of their own language in order to communicate. 6. The teacher should know how much grammar to teach at each level. Most experienced teachers know when to tell a white lie in order to keep information simple and not overwhelm slow learners or learners at lower levels. This book should go some way towards providing the skills outlined in the points above. Remarks and suggestions from users of this book would be greatly appreciated.
