One-semester course. A truly advanced English grammar course for students who have mastered basic and intermediate concepts but have not studied advanced sentence structure and function. We will cover modifiers, advanced verbs, troublesome grammatical elements, and diagramming. Click here for an explanation of our writing and grammar curriculum, and sample course sequences.

Prerequisite: Grammar III, Grammar III or Grammar IV Placement Test
If you feel that your student has a solid grasp of sentence diagramming, but has not taken Grammar III with WTMA, please email [email protected] to request enrollment. Instructor approval required without prerequisite.
