This is a set of documents intended to teach 80% of the Qur'an to learners. The philosophy is that since many of the words in the Qur'an are repeated, 80% of it can be learned quickly and easily by knowing what to focus on. Included are lists of vocabulary separated into genre, such as pronouns and ways to say 'no', verbs and verb conjugation charts, grammar charts detailing active and passive participles, and more. Many of the documents are in PDF as well as in Excel so that changes can be made to the templates, i.e. translation into other languages if desired.

Demonstrative pronouns – this, that, these, and those – are used to replace nouns in sentences. Demonstrative pronouns are difficult to grasp for English language learners for many reasons. First, they all start with th, which is a hard sound for English learners to produce. Second, they are used in relation to the speaker, which often creates further confusion for students. However, if English language learner wants to improve their fluency, they must learn to use them confidently and correctly.If you want additional lesson plans and support, including teachers’ notes, be sure to register for a free Off2Class account.
The need for this particular grammar arises from the peculiar shape of the MDiv curriculum at Asbury Theological Seminary. Several years ago the faculty adopted a curriculum that required one semester of Greek and one semester of Hebrew, each as preparatory for a basic exegesis course in each discipline.
It became clear after several years of trial and error that a â€œlexicalâ€ or â€œtoolsâ€ approach to learning Greek and Hebrew was inadequate, no matter how skilled the instructors or how motivated the students. In today's general vacuum of grammatical training in public education across the United States, students typically enter seminary training with no knowledge of how languages work. Any training we might give them in accessing grammatical information through the use of Bible software programs will, we learned, come to naught in the absence of an understanding of just what such information actually means. We agreed that we actually needed to â€œteach the language itself,â€ at least in some rudimentary fashion, if we hoped students would make sense of grammatical and linguistic issues involved biblical interpretation.
The first 12 chapters of this grammar are designed to correspond to the first semester's instructional agenda. In these chapters we introduce all the parts of speech, explain and drill the basic elements of grammar, set forth the larger verb system (excluding the perfect system), teach the tenses of the Indicative Mood only (again, excluding the perfect system), and help students build a vocabulary of all NT words occurring 100 times or more. We also lead students into the NT itself with carefully chosen examples, while at the same time guiding them in each lesson to learn the use of the standard NT lexicon [BDAG] and an exegetical grammar [Wallace's Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics]. We are well aware of the limitations of this approach, but genuinely believe that some instruction along these lines is better than none, and that such an approach provide a foundation for students interested in moving beyond the first semester (into chapters 13-24) into a firmer grasp of the language of the NT.
Sometimes we use reflexive pronouns like "myself" and "ourselves" for emphasis in a sentence, like, "If you won't help me, then I'll do it myself!" KA's Grammar Fellow, David, explains this usage.
A pronoun can replace a noun or another pronoun. You use pronouns like "he," "which," "none," and "you" to make your sentences less cumbersome and less repetitive. In this video, Santha A. Kumar describes pronoun and its usage in the English language.
This lesson focuses on treating others with respect regarding gender expression. In the lesson students use their culminating understanding of gender and gender expression to create paper dolls.

This lesson provides an interactive, fun way to learn proper grammar and punctuation. Utilizing multimedia and technology-based platform, the game will use engaging and relatable everyday scenarios to learn about proper grammar and punctuation for application in speech and writing. The DLO focuses on the target audience of female learners 15-24 years of age who will be exposed to real-world applications for the information which they are learning, explicitly tailored to increase literacy skills on multiple levels. The problems and scenarios that are given are realistic, allowing learners to refer to personal, relevant experiences to use as a reference when experiencing similar scenarios. For rationale and defense, this relevance is also reinforced in the instruction by Dr. Rodgers. This DLO is designed to take learners through a media-based “Leo City,” where they will experience different levels of grammar activities with each character they meet in the world. As the learner improves their skills, their character will also power up and gain powers to be able to gain access to new sections of the city, until they reached the end.
There's this idea in grammar called grammatical person that helps describe who's being talked about in a sentence. David, KA's Grammar Fellow, explains.
