Grammar revision course - ONE ENGLISH

Grammar revision course

Solid knowledge about English grammar is key to feeling confident using the language. This especially applies to speaking and writing English, but also everyday usage.

Our ONE ENGLISH Grammar revision course helps you brush up on a wide range of topics in an enjoyable yet effective way. Topics can include correct tense usage, conditionals, the most common mistakes of German native speakers or passive and reported speech. However, these are just example topics and we will tailor the topics in the course to the specific requests and needs of the group.

This course specifically presents students with the opportunity to put forward what they want to focus on and helps you put it into immediate practice and develop productive skills. This is also why we can highly recommend joining a Grammar revision course as preparation for a certificate course like IELTS or a Cambridge course.
