ALL sessions are FREE.
The following topics are the most difficult areas for ESL students and thus are generally covered in the workshop series:
- Sentence Structure
- Phrase Structure
- Tense & Aspect
- Passives & Participles
Each session will last either 90 minutes or two hours. Each session will include both a lecture/whole-class discussion and hands-on practice / activities. There will be 2 to 4 instructors for each session, so students will have opportunities to ask for one-on-one help during practice and activities.
