Grammar Advisor
  Grammar Advisor is part course, part reference guide, and part personal grammar consultant. But it’s all dedicated to answering the most common questions you’ll encounter teaching in an EFL classroom.

Grammar Advisor is a comprehensive course, yet easy to use and understand. It provides an overview of the building blocks of grammar—from words and sentences to tenses and teaching tactics. You can go through it sequentially, quiz yourself periodically, and eventually take a final exam if you want to receive your Certificate in English Grammar.

During the course, if you have further questions, need more information, or just want some clarification, you can always search through our constantly updated database of grammar answers, or direct your question to a real person with our “Ask the Grammar Advisor” feature.

  Table of Contents
  Grammar Advisor is divided into four units, which are then divided into sections and chapters. Each unit builds upon the next, so we recommend going through the whole course and then using it as a reference guide as your students encounter specific issues.
