Why is this Course So Different?
Most courses teach you grammar in chunks. You learn adverbs and qualifiers today, the subjunctive tomorrow, the progressive the day after that. Most of the time, you’re just confused.
You never make free-flowing sentences, and if you do manage to speak at all, it feels unnatural and stilted.
Not only is this antiquated method of teaching grueling for the
students, but it’s horrible for the teachers as well. You’d be amazed how many teachers hate grammar-based methods. Yet, they have to teach it, because it is part of the curriculum.
