About this Unit
This unit invites students to study the grammar of English from two related perspectives, formal grammar and functional grammar. The unit provides students with skills in the use of grammar in application to the analysis of a diverse range of texts. Students will develop an understanding of the structures and the functions of English across contexts. This skilled application will enhance their capacities as teachers of English, understanding how English varies in its use and allowing them to support their own students’ skilled use of English across contexts.
