I am able to provide a number of training courses that integrate with aspects of the English syllabus:

  • the parts of speech (full day),  covering nouns (including gerunds), pronouns, verbs, adjectives (including gerundives), adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, determiners and interjections.
  • sentence and clause structure (full day), covering clauses and phrases; subjects and predicates; objects, passive and active voice; compound and complex sentences; main and subordinate clauses; noun, adjectival and adverbial phrases and clauses, and prepositional and verbal phrases
