Has anyone done this course?

Hello,

I am thinking about starting this course tomorrow:

http://www.tlcsprachschule.ch/146-1-Grammar-course.html

Just wondering if anyone else has done it, whether or not you found it beneficial?

Kind regards,

Charde

If you are thinking of doing CELTA and need a brush up on your grammar I would definitely recommend doing some kind of refresher course.

I didn't take such a course before I started CELTA and had to reach deep into my memories of school-days (and call my mum) to remember what the dickens a "Gerund" was, for example.

Thanks so much. I have already done my CELTA but need a lot more work on my grammar so I thought this course might be useful?

There are grammar help websites on the 'Net if you look hard enough.

I'm not sure if it's worth paying money for something you can get from books and free websites.

If you have already done CELTA then definitely don't pay for a grammar course. Just get a copy of Swan's Practical English Usage and away you go.

That, or as said above, learn it from online sites that cost nothing there are hundreds available.

The Uni ZH and ETH have a language learning website that has a good resource pool. This link goes to a result list of resources for English Grammar: http://www.sprachenzentrum.uzh.ch/sl...encats%5B%5D=6

Good luck.
