    posing a question

    Hi,
    Does this question is grammatical enough? How best can it be revised?
    "What are other techniques besides using L1-L2 approach and code-switching to aid rural learners to gain their understanding of a lesson content?"

    Thanks

    Overall it's pretty grammatically correct

    I have a few suggestions though:

    I think that "a lesson content" is an awkward phrase; we can't really have "a content". You could say "a lesson's content" if you wanted.
    Perhaps just "lesson content" would even sound better.

    I think "gain their understanding" is redundant, because you can just use "understand", and there's no set phrase "gain understanding" in Br English.

    You would need a definite article with "approach".


    The "feel" of the question is very formal, and it might be quite hard to understand, especially for a non-native speaker, because of the ordering of the clauses.

    I might try rearranging it like this:

    "Besides using the L1-L2 approach and code-switching, what are other techniques to aid rural learners to understand lesson content?"
