Topics

The following topics are the most difficult areas for ESL students and thus are generally covered in the workshop series:

  • Sentence Structure
  • Phrase Structure
  • Articles
  • Tense & Aspect
  • Passives & Participles

Format

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.
