Net Grammar

Written by an ESL/EFL practitioner, NetGrammar focuses on English grammar through interactive listening, reading and writing activities.

Research in second language acquisition suggests that students expect and need to learn the formal rules of a language in focus. That is why NetGrammar was developed with that focus in mind where students will practice new structures in a variety of contexts in order to help them internalize and master the many structures of English. NetGrammar provides an abundance of both controlled and communicative exercises so that students can bridge the gap between knowing grammatical structures and using them.

NetGrammar follows a six-step approach at the Unit Level. The first step is contextualiazing the new content through clear objectives, language functions and notes where new structures are shown in context. This is followed by a presentation of the structures (Grammar Focus) with grammar charts and explanations. The third step is listening where students hear a variety of short conversations, interviews, storytelling, etc. The fourth step is reading. Here, students can find a variety of short authentic passage.. The fifth step is writing where students can practice the new structures by cues given to them. They can also e-mail their writing products to their instructor and/or other friends. And finally, the six step is the review section, which can be used as a self test. The exercises in this section test the structures of the unit and can be e-mailed to the instructor and/or other friends.
