Parsing English sentences is a great way to learn about English grammar, and to master practical skills. Here are some steps to practise parsing. (1) Find the verbs, determine whether they are Active (Action of Verb) or Passive (Received action of Verb). (2) Locate auxiliary (or helping) verbs. (3) Identify tense of verb--(Past, present, or future). (4) Identify subordinate clauses, and their tense. (5) Determine the basic elements of each sentence. (6) Identify subject of sentence--what is the sentence discussing? (7) What type of sentence is it? Is it a statement, question, exclamation, comm

~~Context, function and form give learners the essential where, why and how of the language (or skill) being taught. A lesson needs all three to make it clear and engaging.  Context – the where and why of the language situation.  Function – the intent (or the why) of the language used, its purpose  Form – the structure of the language When devising contexts you should consider where the language is being used, by whom and for what purpose.

Going to teach in the Middle East can be an amazing and rewarding experience. You'll get to experience new and exciting cultures, make friends with people you might never otherwise meet, and you also get to take advantage of the travel opportunities. Before you quit your job and pack up your home, however, consider these three things.

English can be very difficult to learn and there are many reasons for that. First of all, let's look at where the English language comes from: Latin, Greek, Norse, Germanic tribes (Saxony, e.g.), French (Norman), and many others. In days of yore in Britain where English started, there were the Angles (a tribal people)...thus Anglish which became English. However, the Angles had originally crossed the Channel from Germany as did the Saxons. Brittany is in Fra
