Grammar & Vocabulary 1
Would you like to refresh your English grammar and vocabulary so that you can avoid mistakes and spend less time looking for the right words? During this course, you will work on the most important grammar rules and expand your vocabulary.
Grammar & Vocabulary 1 is for anyone who wants to brush up on their grammar and expand their vocabulary.
This course covers the most important grammatical rules and most common mistakes. You will see that this course will refresh your knowledge, but that there are also many rules that you do not yet know or use.
The topics covered are:
- use of the basic tenses (present / past / perfect and future);
- sentence analysis and standard rules for word order;
- adjectives and adverbs;
- relative pronouns;
- phrases starting with ‘if’;
- plural forms of nouns;
People who learn English sometimes worry about their grammar, but not being able to find the right words may also hinder successful communication. The words you choose to use, or choose not to use, can convey more than just ideas. They can have a different meaning, convey an underlying message or opinion, or even change the course of history!
With about 800 new words being added to the English dictionary every year, it is difficult to determine where to start.
This course shows you how best to learn new words, recognise new words and their meaning and how you can expand your vocabulary yourself. You create a personal dictionary of useful words to be used in a business context or your private life.
To take this course you need an Oxford Online Placement Test (OOPT) score between 50-70. You can apply for the online OOPT by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
