  • 1. How to learn English grammar?Once you have started to learn a foreign language you want to use it,speak it, write it and above all communicate with others. But as we say,you have to learn to walk before you can run. You have to learn somethingabout the way words work together, the way you can express differenttimes or tenses, the way you use adjectives, adverbs, prepositions and soon. But if you are determined to get control of the language, understand itand use it properly, you must not let the things I have listed stop you. Onething at a time. Gradually bit by bit if you work hard, you will findsuccess. The one word that sometimes makes people frightened when theystart to learn a new language is "grammar". But dont worry about thatword because its only a very general title used to cover the workings ofthe language. The danger comes when you let grammar get in the waywhile you are learning. Remember that it was people who created thelanguage in the first place. The "grammar people" or the grammarianscame later.EnglishGrammarthroughStoriesImproving yourgrammar ismuch easier thanyou thinkPrintable,photocopiableand clearlystructuredformatFor use in aclassroom, athome, on yourPC, or anywhereStartimprovingyourlisteningskillstoday!Take theselisteningexercisesnow.On our site we have a wealth of different multiple choice tests, texts andstories which show grammar in context. Those are the words I want tostress – in context. Its no good learning just the meaning of a new word,
