I don’t have any teaching experience. Is that a problem?
Not at all. This course is designed for proficient or native speakers of English to learn some fundamentals about grammar.
I’m not attending the CELTA at IH Bangkok. Can I do the Grammar Refresher course?
Yes, the course is open to anyone who would like to improve their basic knowledge of English grammar.
I’m already teaching. Will this course be suitable for me?
Yes, if you are a teacher who hasn’t taught much grammar or doesn’t feel confident in recognising and using terminology.
Wouldn’t grammar be taught anyway on the CELTA course at IH Bangkok?
Certain grammatical points will be covered in the sessions and you will research particular areas related to your lesson aims, but the main focus of the CELTA is teaching techniques and frameworks, i.e. how to teach grammar, rather than specific areas of grammar itself.
I’m not a native speaker. Is that a problem?
No. The course is open to non-native speakers. However, you must have sufficient competence in English to interact comfortably with native and proficient speakers on the course, so your English should be at the Pre-Advanced level.
