Each class session will consist of the students learning how to describe the English language through extrapolating rules and guides of usage from given examples of grammatical structures. The students will then work on various tasks aimed at raising consciousness and reinforcing these structures. This often will be followed by a creative written task aimed at using the structures in discourse, usually to be given as a homework assignment. The onus is on the students to work things out for themselves rather than just receive and remember knowledge presented by the instructor.
