Not only is the knowledge of the English language essential for the training and profesional development of the future Primary Education teachers; it is also crucial for them to know how English is structured as well as its main elements and units. In this regard, the course unit Grammar and Discourse delves into the scientific study and systematic reflection of English grammar (morphology and syntax) and discourse. This course focuses on one of the two dimensions on which the speciality of Foreign Language: English is based: the knowledge of grammar as part of the more general knowledge of the English language.
After completion of the course, students will be able to know the basic principles of English grammar and apply them in their future jobs in order to teach the language succesfully.
 
The course unit English Grammar and Discourse is integrated in the speciality of Foreign Language: English which belongs to the Degree of Teacher in Primary Education.

  Comentarios adicionales sobre el temario

The main aim of this course is to help students gain understanding of the main rules and elements of English morphosyntax (grammar and vocabulary). To this end, following a hierarchical structure, the different language units are studied: the word, the phrase, the clause and the text. In this way, students get familiar with the main morphological and syntactic elements of the English language and how they work in (real and contextualised) discourse. 

The approach to the English grammar followed here is, first and foremost, functional and communicative: In fact, this course unit deals with the scientific study of English as a structured system of communication. Attention will thus be paid to the pragmatic and communicative aspects of language units in texts belonging to different discourse types.

This course unit closes with aspects related to the teaching of English grammar in the Primary Education classroom.
