Coursera: Adjectives and Adjective Clauses

 with  Tamy Chapman
Being able to adeptly use adjective clauses in speaking and writing is useful for upper level English learners. Adjectives and adjective clauses are very common in English, so students need to be able to understand them when they see them or hear them. Students often struggle to bring complexity to their speaking and writing and adjective clauses can be a great way to do this.

Please note that all of the lectures and practice activities are available for free, but taking the quizzes and getting feedback on assignments are only available in the paid version

Kathleen Wright partially completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
It was so screamingly boring that I couldn't complete it. I am a writing teacher, fiction coach, and published author. There has to be a more interesting way to present this!
