Grammar course for teachers?

Greetings all...

I've just completed my first week as an ESL teacher in Siberia. This is a career change for me, and though I'm a native speaker of English (I'm from Australia), I have no formal training in teaching. I'm nervous about the fact that I don't have a very good grasp on grammar rules and concepts.

It worries me that some of my Russian students probably know the rules better than I (although they still make a lot of mistakes). Sometimes I come unstuck in my lessons trying to explain, for example, the difference between the tenses (past/present simple, continuous etc).

Can anybody point me towards some excellent material to help me fast-track my knowledge of rudimentary grammar rules? Maybe an online course or eBook?

Thanks!

Raymond Murphy has a series of grammar books for students. Also good for teachers. They're very comprehensive and quick and easy to read.

Hi there,

You could try Cambridge's Grammar for Teachers course (https://www.cambridgeenglishteacher.org ... ails/18606). You pay around €30 for it, and from what I've heard, it's a great course. I've got no personal experience of it though.

Try looking on COURSERA where there are lots of English courses listed. In particular the University of California(Irvine) have some terrific grammar courses - mainly intended for students - that explain a lot of grammatical usage. You can either pay for the course if you want a certificate but you can follow for free. Lots of examples, quizzes etc. I would highly recommend them
