The Introduction to Grammar course is designed to teach the basic concepts and terminology of grammar. It’s ideal for two types of students: those who haven’t yet had any formal experience studying grammar, and students who might have covered “the basics” but don’t really have a thorough understanding of the subject yet.
The course is three months long, and is comprised of 12 separate lessons. Each of the 12 lessons is delivered through email. Each lesson is sent to the student on a Monday, at which point the student is given four days (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday) to review the lesson and to complete the assignments contained therein. The assignment for each week is always due on Friday.
During the week, students are free to correspond with Mr. Lux each day to ask questions and receive any necessary guidance. Mr. Lux will always reply within 24 hours. Checked assignments will be returned to students on Monday of the following week. A final grade can be given at the end of the course. The course is intended for students who are at least 12 years old.
Below is a list of the lessons in the order in which they’ll be taught:
