This grammar/writing course is primarily designed to train students to write basic English sentence patterns. The course will, therefore, proceed in subtle gradation from the simple to the complex. Since the study of sentence structure is inseparable from any basic composition course, the course also aims at preparing students for the next writing course in level two. Among other topics, the course focuses on parts of speech, verb tenses, subject-verb agreement, types of sentences (including simple, compound and complex), various types of modifiers, as well as transitional expressions. Emphasis will be laid on the extensive use of exercises and sentence writing in the classroom.
