Hi everybody, I teach English in a high school. In our country, students start learning English from 2nd grade until graduation from university. Namely, my current students have been learning English for ten years. That means approximately 1260 hours of learning English. I think you can guess what I am going to say. Yes, they still have problems in a considerable number of subjects. To relate the post with the topic, I should say that one of their major and most frequent problems is to build a grammatical sentence. They have problems when we sometimes make slighest changes in sentences. They misuse subject, sometimes predicate, adverbial phrase etc. There are some reasons that are beyond our control such as the syntactic differences between NL and TL. Shortly, my aim of creating this topic is to get some ideas on how to teach my students more effectively to build a grammatical sentence. Does anyone have any different ideas? How to teach students to learn the order of parts of speech? Is there any level obstacle for teaching the parts of speech? What parts should be introduced to which grade? What is the standard order of parts of speech? (all parts together). Thanks for reading the post:)
