Grammar and Style Overview Online

The Grammar and Style Overview has been designed for English Language Learners.  For 1st Generation ELLs, there are vocabulary exercises, and pronunciation activities, as well as grammar explanations and exercises. For Gen 1.5 ELLs, the grammar explanations and exercises reflect the most common mistakes that occur in their writing.  Gen 1.5 ELLs can watch style videos and complete the style activities.  The style section focuses on the differences between the everyday language that most of us use normally and the academic language required for success in college.  For 2nd Generation ELLs, the style and vocabulary sections are highly recommended.  These students benefit from learning the how to move beyond everyday language to more precise language.  Grammar is not usually a problem which allows for more emphasis on academic vocabulary development.
