English Composition

Recommended Posts

Do you know a fast and effective way for an adult to "learn" (and I mean "learn") the language? You know, the grammar, composition, sentence structure and writing essay? Final goal, CLEP the course.

 

I know, I might be asking for a miracle, so let me :bigear: what you have to say. I do believe in miracles, who knows, some of you here might have the answer.

 

Thanks in advance.

You might check with Berlitz. I know that they have intensive tutoring with native speakers where you learn to speak the language in a week or so. We're talking 8 hours a day where no English is allowed. They may also be able to supplement conversational language with written work. They may have recomendations to help you use their materials at home, also.

....speaking is not the problem. This is a native English speaking adult that grammar and composition was not taught in school.

 

I just need something easy to understand the grammar, composition, stuff like that.

 

Thanks in advance.

Warriner's might be a good choice. It is out of print, but Seton sells the textbooks and answer keys - and it's not expensive. The books includes grammar, spelling, composition, and vocabulary.

 

Hope that helps,

Here is a link to lesson plans for the CLEP English Composition. Textbooks for the lessons are listed on the right of the page. I'm looking into CLEP classes for my dd, so I came across this website due to a post I read a day or two ago on TWTM Highschool board.

...which "course" is better? I found 3rd and 4th. Are these editions or grade?

 

Thanks in advance.

This is what I used for my 7th and 8th graders ... it is self paced, easily understood and compact. I even said "oh, now I get it!" Older editions are just fine ... there is Form A, B and C. Same book, just different sentence examples used. Any one is fine.

I think the 3rd is intended for 9th grade, and the 4th for 10th, but I'm not completely sure. I used just the 3rd and spread it over 2 years. I don't think it probably matters too much which one to use, though I suspect the 4th might move a little quicker with grammar.

I'm not Veronica, but the numbers are by level. Warriner's starts with the seventh grade so the First Course would be for Seventh Grade, Second Course for 8th, Third Course for 9th, Fourth Course for 10th, Fifth Course for 11th, and the Complete Course would be for 12th (or you could use this one book for high school going slowly through it over the years). I think the editions are by the years (1985, 1990, etc.). I actually own a 1950 something book. I remember using Warriner's when I was a sophomore in high school. That was a lonnnnnnnng time ago!!
