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.
Many thanks for adding me to your new grammar mailing list.
Mrs Patricia Cockburn
sharing ideas, looking at what stares you in the face but I cannot put 2 and 2 together.
Thanks for promoting collaboration.
A brilliant idea ! Thanks !
Well done for thinking of this medium, Dick. A splendid move forward.
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.
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.
Excellent idea- looking foward to sharing ideas about new ways to make learning grammar fun for students!
Great idea. Thank you.
Good idea! Thanks.
Thanks. That is really a good idea!
I have never stopped teaching grammar, but would love to make it more fun.
