Every time I do a Language for Life workshop, I can’t help wishing we had more time. The parts of speech are so interesting, so dynamic, I feel like we’re only scratching the surface sometimes.
So let’s split each major word category into seven segments:
- nouns – Dec 1
- pronouns- Dec 8
- verbs- Dec 15
- adjectives- Dec 22
- adverbs- Jan 5
- prepositions- Jan 12 (you are here)
- conjunctions- Jan 19
and take some time to do them justice.
90 minutes every Wednesday this southern hemisphere summer, northern hemisphere winter. We’ll turn these workshops into mini-courses.
All who sign up for the live workshops will be placed on the mini-courses afterwards for 6 weeks of access. So you can sign up, come and join us live, or if you miss it, you can just take the course in your own time. You can even do both!
When: December 1, 8, 15 & 22 and then January 5, 12 & 19 10-11:30am MELBOURNE TIME
Where: Zoom – Registration required, we will send a link for the live event. Once that event has taken place, we will enrol you on the online course.
Cost: AUD$45 per segment
Target audience: Educators wishing to gain a deeper and broader understanding of grammar as it relates to identifying and categorising the parts of speech. If you have the Language for Life book or have done the Language for Life course, you will be somewhat familiar with this material, but it goes into each part of speech in a way previously not presented. There will also be much opportunity for questions and answers.
Here’s a timetable for some major world cities:
Mini-Courses released one week after each live event. Access is for six weeks.
Looking forward to a wonderful time with you all!
