ESL Grammar Workshop Series

 

Each semester, all international students at Illinois are invited to attend the ESL Grammar Workshop Series hosted by students in EIL 422 English Grammar for ESL Teachers and ESL Services Program.

Dates and Registration

Please visit the UIUC ESL Grammar Workshop website for the registration form and a complete list of the dates/topics offered for this semester.

Cost

ALL sessions are FREE for all international students at UIUC

Location

Sessions will be held at Foreign Languages Building (in the basement)

Topics

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

  • Sentence Structure
  • Articles
  • Tense & Aspect
  • Prepositions & Phrasal Verbs

Format

Each session will be two hours. Each session will include both a lecture/whole-class discussion and hands-on practice in smaller groups. There will be 2-4 instructors for each session, so students will have opportunities to ask for one-on-one help during small group activities.
