What do you think of grammar?

What do you think of grammar? Are you one of those people who thinks grammar is so complicated and hard to understand? Are you one of those people who thinks he/she should memorize the rules of grammar to be able to speak or write correctly? I’m here to talk about my own experience of learning grammar. You know, I believe we shouldn’t memorize the structures or rules of a language. When we start watching movies and reading books, we learn the grammatical points without noticing. That’s why sometimes you know that a sentence is not correct, but you don’t know why! Because you know that you have never seen or heard that structure. I recommend learning grammar in context, and not as a separate boring course. Whenever you watch a movie, pay attention to the way they talk, write and repeat the practical sentences several times. Whenever you read a book, pay close attention to the sentences and read the same page as many times as you need. This is one way, and I think one of the best ways, to learn the structure of a language without studying it. But people are different, and their needs and desires are different, too. Some people learn better by studying the structures. If you are one of those people, it’s ok. You can read different grammar books like Betty Azar, Modern English, Grammar in use, etc.

In the PowerPoint part of the site, I prepared some grammar PowerPoints that you can enjoy using. Wish you the best of luck.
