  • Alison is delighted to introduce its new English Language Vertical (ELV) which is a comprehensive suite of online English language courses for learners of English as a second language.

    In this, the first of the English language courses, you will learn about word order and comparative forms: words, phrases, sentences and vocabulary; using suffixes for one syllable two syllable words; using the form 'more + adjective'; using 'more' with adverbs such as: quietly, slowly, to describe actions. The course explains how, in English, we use certain words and phrases in comparative forms to emphasize the extent or level of something, and we repeat comparatives to emphasize and exaggerate points.

    We also use 'the' with comparative words and phrases, especially for zero conditional statements and idioms. In English, the object normally follows the verb in sentences; 'Place' usually comes after the verb and if the verb has an object, 'place' comes after the verb and the object.

    You will study presentations, listen to native speakers speaking and complete multiple assessment questions to test your learning. When listening to the audio recordings of native English speakers saying words and sentences try practicing words, sentences, pronunciation and intonation by repeating what you hear.

    This course will be of great interest to all learners who would like to improve their English language grammar skills, and who would like to practice their writing, speaking and listening skills.

  • Having completed this course you will be able to:

    • Describe proper word order and use it in sentences.
    • Explain how comparative words and phrases are formed and use them in sentences.
    • Use the definite article in zero conditional statements and idioms.
    • Explain how adjectives and adverbs are used in comparative forms.

  • All Alison courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must score 80% or higher in each course assessments. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by purchasing an official Alison Diploma, Certificate or PDF.

    Having an official Alison document is a great way to celebrate and share your success. It is:

    • Ideal to include with CVs, job applications and portfolios
