Douglas Porter (1977-Present) was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick, to fifth-generation Canadians; spent most of his childhood in rural Nova Scotia; moved to South Portland, Maine when he was fourteen.
After graduating university, he worked and lived in the Outback; basked in the faint glow of a transitioning China; hitchhiked across Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia; and traveled the eight time zones of Russia on the Trans-Siberian Railway.
For eight years he has taught English to students of all ages and backgrounds. In Korea he gained competence at afterschool academy, professionalism teaching at multinationals like Samsung and LG, and a curriculum teaching on the university level.
His first book, "Mastering A, An, The: English Articles Solved," is a systematic reinterpretation of the pedagogy of grammar.
He returned to Canada in early 2013 where he resides in Kitchener with his lovely wife.
Semantics is the study of the meaning of words. Meaning defines grammar, usage, and idioms. If you learn the meaning of elementary English grammar words, you will improve your use of a, an, and the. All you have to do
