By the end of the course, your knowledge of English grammar will be deep enough to take on advanced exams, to watch US and UK TV, and to speak in a more complex way. Though accessible to intermediate students, the course delves into the details on many themes, for I have a passion for advanced grammar. I do not speak to my students slowly, as though they were pre-intermediate learners, so if that's the kind of course you are looking for, this one is not for you. Nonetheless, I do respond quickly to inquisitive students, so please join the fun if you are ready!
