    I am teacher of German in the UK.
    I would like to find ways of teaching grammar creatively so that my students will love grammar as much as I do.

    I teach A level English Language and a level 3 grammar module, based heavily on SFL, at the Open University.

      I just wanted to add that I think this is such a good initiative as grammar has sometimes been seen as a ‘dry’ subject, particularly by students. So a shared goal of encouraging and enthusing students in their learning of grammar, is a wonderful idea.

  9. Emilie Ka says:

    I used to teach French and German in secondary schools in the UK. Grammar teaching has always been a tricky part of the MFL teaching… accepted in some schools, absolutely forbidden in others!
    Today, I am a PHD candidate in applied linguistics (didactics) and my research focuses on grammar teaching practices and grammar teachers’ talk in MFL lessons in the UK.
    Thanks for opening this email list!

    I teach English at a ‘widening participation’ Sixth Form College in east London, and would welcome opportunities to be involved any discussion about how we teach/learn grammar. With students coming to us who have no formal experience of grammar through their English and Modern Languages GCSEs, we find that we have to start from scratch, a challenging but rewarding process.

  11. Virginie Dall'Acqua says:

    Excellent idea- looking foward to sharing ideas about new ways to make learning grammar fun for students!

  12. Jessica Ashby says:

    Great idea. Thank you.

  13. Beverley Schramm says:

    Brilliant idea!

  14. Fatima says:

    Good idea! Thanks.

  15. Fatima says:

    Thanks. That is really a good idea!

  16. Lynn Smith says:

    I have never stopped teaching grammar, but would love to make it more fun.

  17. Debra Myhill says:

    Great idea, Dick – thanks!

  18. Justin Barrass says:

    I teach English at Sungkyunkwan University, Korea. I’m keen to hear and share ideas.

  19. Ruth Scheepers says:

    I teach English literature at a South African university – my students are mostly second or even third language speakers of English so they need a lot of help with grammar!

  20. Harriet Speed says:

    I equally think this is a great idea- definitely a current need!
    I teach first-language English in a Secondary School in the UK (11-18 year olds). I am also a part-time PhD student. My research focuses on whether developed grammatical pedagogies have an effect on writing, particularly those that are based on Cognitive Linguistics and Cognitive Grammar. It would be great to hear about what types of grammar activities everyone is using in their classrooms at the moment and what you feel these achieve.

  21. Jenny Hopper says:

    I’m a Head of MFL looking towards the new GCSEs where the teaching of grammar is becoming even more important. We actively teach grammar here, but any opportunity to share options for more creative grammar teaching is welcome

  22. Gee Macrory says:

    Good idea, thanks!I work in teacher education (English and Languages, primary and secondary) so a big part of what we do.
