Course Aims

This course aims to equip students with the knowledge of essential grammar in Chinese and English for second/foreign language (CSL and ESL) teaching purposes. Phonetics, phonology, and morphology of the two languages will be discussed. The relationship between syntax, semantics and pragmatics will be explored through the analyses of the form, meaning and function of the morpho-syntactic and syntactic structures of Chinese and English. Discussion of theory and research on the pedagogy of CSL/ESL grammar will be incorporated with practices or grammar activities. Students will be trained to use research to inform practice, and enhance teaching and learning.
