Designed for ESL and ELT teacher training courses around the world, this text is distinguished by its focus on grammar pedagogy in a global perspective. Beginning with a look at theoretical issues of teaching and learning English as an international language, the book then takes major grammatical points in turn and examines them first from the perspective of 'standard' grammar and then from the perspective of 'global English'. Written in an easy-to-follow style, English Grammar Pedagogy: Includes a discussion of language ideologies and attitudes towards English as a global language Addresses syntactic differences in English across the globe, L1 to English transfer problems, and academic writing in Anglophone countries Puts special emphasis on the grammar tested by international gate-keeper exams, such as the TOEFL The provision of methods for student empowerment to analyze and correct their errors, and the variety of structure-based classroom exercises, make this a particularly useful pedagogical grammar text for MATESOL programs and a valuable reference for practitioners everywhere, particularly for non-native speaker English teachers.
