What is grammar?
Grammar is a set of rules that explain the structure of a language. It is, of course, an essential part of any language, but you certainly don’t need to be an expert in grammar rules in order to speak. For example, you can use a bike every day without knowing the mechanics of how it functions. we should study grammar to consolidate and strengthen our understanding. Many schools teach differently, they teach you the rules before you can speak, in reality, it is much more natural to do the opposite.
Understanding these early stages in language learning can help adults understand how to learn a second language.
An environment where English is spoken from the start
- Listening is the basis of all lessons because it is the first skill to develop at every level.
- After you listen you speak. Just like children, you make mistakes but you correct yourself.
- At this point you read the new language and learn to use it in writing too.
- Practice. Once you’ve acquired the language in this natural way you practice so the new words and phrases become automatic.
- Just as children do, after having learnt and practiced you reflect on the language you can now use by doing some exercises.
Grammar is undoubtedly a part of language learning but it should not be the central element and certainly doesn’t need to be hard.
There are hundreds of grammar rules but the basics refer to sentence structure and parts of speech, including nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions and conjunctions. Construct accurate and beautiful sentences as you tell a story, write a paper for school, or conduct an experiment.
