    Hello Elaine,

    At the English Language Center at Michigan State University, we offer an Online TESOL Certificate Program and the core courses in this program can be taken individually. You might be interested in our Pedagogical Grammar course, and I should note that while completely online, there is one required textbook. These courses are self-paced, so you can enroll when you're ready. Please visit our program website for course descriptions, syllabi, costs, and more information, or please feel free to reach out to me for assistance. All the best to you in your search.

    Sincerely,
    Laura Ramm

    Hi Laura,

    That's such a coincidence. Just last week, I bought the same book to begin studying at home. I am enrolled in a TESOL certificate program, but the grammar course was canceled this past quarter due to low enrollment. My grammar course still needs to be completed to earn my certificate, but that will have to wait until the fall or winter. While I will be using a book from Scott Thornbury, I've heard that Keys to Teaching Grammar is very informative, so I bought it.  I will definitely look into it since the tuition is very affordable.

    Thank you,
    Elaine

    Hi Elaine,

    Thank you for your message. That is a coincidence, and I'm glad to hear that you bought the book already. I've enjoyed it and would be happy to talk with you in the future about the book, course, or teaching in general. All the best to you with your program and let me know if I can help you further in the future.

    Sincerely,
    Laura
