    Exclamation re: becoming a English Teacher

    hi

    i hope to begin my PGCE English soon and wanted to know what features of the English language should i know or polish up before i set sight as a teacher, the last thing i want is not to know a simple grammatical or syntax quiery which is pretty obvious.

    thank you for your time.

    **also i would appreciate if you can recommend me any authors/books which can help me identify my mistakes and aid me during my training.

    As an English teacher I can recommend you the following ten books. They are very, very useful. I myself bought them and helped me a lot. They are not cheap but you can buy them one by one.

    Take a look here:
