Description

I have been helping students preparing for their Cambridge Advanced and IELTS exams for more than five years now and have noticed that no matter how hard they work on their grammar some mistakes are really hard to rub off. For this reason, I have compiled a list of the most common mistakes students make despite their level being upper-intermediate or advanced. The course is divided into ten modules for you to work on the following grammar topics:

1. Countable and Uncountable Nouns

Deciding whether a noun is countable or uncountable is not always easy. This video will help you working out the difference between countable and uncountable nouns. In this lesson you'll just have to watch this video and download your complementary material. Watch the video and read the PowerPoint presentation about countable and uncountable nouns.

2. 'Of' or 'Possessive 's'?

Using the possessive 's is not always easy. In this video, I've tried to answer my students' most frequently asked questions about the use of the possessive 's.

3. Adjective Patterns

In this lesson you're going to learn the difference between attributive and predicative adjectives. This will help avoid making mistakes while describing things. Adjectives add strength and emphasis to what we say. Therefore, it is really important that we use them correctly so our sentences don't sound awkward.

4. Groups of Adjectives

This lesson includes three main grammar items: adjective order, paired adjectives and how to use commas and 'and' while listing adjectives in attributive position. Growing familiar with adjective order will improve your writing considerably.

5. Comparative Patterns

This module will give you the language tools you need to be able to compare and contrast aspects related to the same thing or to two different items. Comparing and contrasting might be a bit tricky, especially if you want to stress and highlight nuances of meaning. In this section, I will show you comparative patterns which are typical of spoken English. At this level you should be familiar with comparative and superlative adjectives. I’m pretty sure you know everything you need about spelling rules when it comes to the use of comparative and superlative adjectives. If you think you should revise comparative and superlative adjectives, I’m including a PowerPoint in this section of the course so you can revise rules and exceptions you might not be familiar with.

6. 'Can' or 'be able to'?

In this section, you will learn the difference between can and be able to. Knowing this difference will help your sentences sound more effective and less awkward. I'm sure you'll be able to use modal verbs effective after going through module 6, 7 and 8.

7. Modal Verbs: Talking about Possibilities

In this section you'll learn how to talk about present, future and past possibilities.

8. Modal Verbs for Speculations

In this module you're going to grow familiar with the use of modal verbs for speculations and expectations. Being able to use modal verbs for speculations and expectations will definitely come in handy while preparing for your Cambridge Advanced Exam.

9. Inversion in English

Inversion is used in English to add formality and emphasis. This module might come in handy while studying towards FCE or Cambridge Advanced.

10. Structural Conversion

Structural Conversion is also known as rephrasing. In English, as in any other language, we can use different grammar structures to convey the same message. Being able to transform a sentence, so as its meaning does not change, is a skill which is tested in the following Cambridge English Exams: first certificate, Cambridge advanced and the certificate of proficiency in English.
