I got offered free access to this course on Udemy. I’ve been meaning to do it for a while. Finally got around to it and… wow! It’s very impressive.
Spoken Grammar is a teacher training course. It provides teachers with techniques and materials for teaching conversational grammar – typically to learners at intermediate level or above. There are about three hours of lectures on the course which highlight a wide range of spoken grammar, and give an insight into how these features could be taught in the classroom.
There are 6 sections on the course:
|Section 2||Word order and ellipsis: heads and tails; declarative questions; ellipsis.|
|Section 3||Emphasis: hyperbole; interjections; cleft structure and binominals.|
|Section 4||Vague language: vague categories; vague placeholders; lexical bundles.|
|Section 5||Marking spoken discourse: adverbials; discourse markers; using direct speech.|
|Section 6||Response language: tokens and questions; so and do; synonymous language; dependent clauses.|
