This book is brilliant and those who are about to start a CELTA and worried about grammar - well there is no need. I was learning about the basics of grammar frantically whilst reading this book to stop myself getting bored. I don't know why but I find learning the theory on grammar the dullest part of language teaching. I'm sure my students would find this true for them too so I wondered if there were techniques in this book I could use for my own learning.
One thing I found whilst looking at the CELTA syllabus (I highly recommend this so you know what to expect!) was that CELTA focuses on teaching methods, not your knowledge of grammar. When you do teach grammar, learn it the night before or a few days before...not a few months before the course starts. Once you teach and learn with your class, you will not forget it! This is in my opinion, the best way to learn grammar. However, it is worth familiarising yourself with some BASIC grammar such as the word classes and verb tenses with any basic grammar book. The internet is an even better resource! What I did was make my own typed up notes using various grammar books on the basics so that I can at least teach the basics should a question arise. That is to say, do not recite for example comprehensive paragraphs of what a preposition is! Simply one line definition and a few examples you can remember.Read more ›
