  6. 6. The Advantage of Groups in ANGEL?<br />The same as for F2F courses!<br />Communication is easier when scale is smaller.<br />Students bond and develop more “buy in” for the course.<br />Yields a wider variety of results from your activity.<br />

  13. 13. What is Grammar?</li></ul>People often think of grammar as a matter of arbitrary pronouncements (defining &apos;good&apos; and &apos;bad&apos; language), usually negative ones like There is no such word as ain&apos;t or Never end a sentence with a preposition. Linguists are not very interested in this sort of bossiness (sometimes called prescriptivism). For linguists, grammar is simply the collection of principles defining how to put together a sentence.<br />
