Abstract

This paper aims to discover what is taught in the high school grammar classes in one of the girls ‘exclusive schools in the Philippines. Specifically, this study also wants to know whether grammar is taught in a prescriptive or descriptive way. There is a strong evidence that discrete-point analysis is used in the teaching of grammar and that in this particular English class and school, the prescriptive approach or the traditional way is still employed.
