I've done the Celta course and have been teaching for just over a year-I found the methodology very helpful but what lacked was how to teach grammar-I am learning it as i go along!!! Anyway,does anyone know of websites where, I could improve my grammar and look at the English language from the student's point of view? Perhaps a distance learning course? Where do you find all the tricks of the trade that help in language learning?? Thanks in advance for any suggestions Smile Smile

Hi Maria,

I've found http://webster.commnet.edu/grammar/ a very useful online reference.

If you have some time and a news reader, you can get a great deal of information from various Usenet groups, e.g.

misc.education.language.english
alt.usage.english
alt.english.usage.

I've been reading these groups for a while - what I've found is a lot of bickering between grammarians - your job would be to chose which set of bickering opinions you wish to adopt Wink

A friend of mine put this mini links list together and I think it's fairly good:
