ETM 3 Blogs about Teaching Grammar

I gave ETM3 students a list of all the grammar taught in Japanese junior high schools and asked them to write about which grammatical element on the list was most difficult for them to learn and how would they teach it. Below I have listed the names of the students and grammar that the students wrote about:

Happy Days: Relative Pronouns
Cheesecake: Present Perfect Tense
John Wang: Present Perfect Continuous
Eringo: Present Perfect
Patapata: Present Perfect Tense
Shota: Indirect Interrogatives
ELLE: Relative Pronouns
Relative Pronouns

    Hi, JH.
    Last time, we discussed teaching grammar.
    I forgot to tell you a study aid.
    Do you know「ハートで感じる英文法」 (NHK出版)? It's quite useful for me. Maybe you can buy one at 生協.
