Ask yourself: I achieved good results in English. Do I need to take a Grammar Bridging Course?
See how many of the following questions you can answer:
1. These are some utterances typical of a 3-year-old child interacting with his mother. Identify all the multiword phrases and classify them as NP, VP, ADJ-P, ADV-P, or PP: "That tiger a bad cat." "Two cars sit on garage." "My race car goes so fast."
2. Does this utterance from a 7-year-old child contain more than one clause? "The giraffe fell onto the little boy."
3. Provide examples of how a speech pathologist might help this 2-year-old begin to include more adjectival phrases in her language. Typically, the 2-year-old says things like: "That a ball." "A baby."
4. Identify the verb in this utterance as either Copular, Auxiliary, Gerund or Infinitive: "They were happy."
If you experienced difficulty with any of the above questions or want to improve your skills and confidence in grammatical analysis, then the bridging course is for you!
