Dear ESL All subscribers,

Can learning grammar really make a difference in learning English? We believe it can, especially if you are an adult. Let’s say that you decide to learn how to play the card game of bridge. You can do it in basically three different ways.

Method 1: you sit at the table and start to play bridge with other players learning as you go along.

Method 2: You get a book teaching everything about the rules and strategies of bridge. You study the book thoroughly, and then you talk about bridge.

Method 3: You learn the rules and strategies of bridge and you also practice playing a lot of bridge. Needless to say, Method 3 is by far the one that we recommend.

Learning to speak English as you go can only bring you so far. Learning the rules while practicing as much as possible will help you overcome plateaus and eventually reach a level of competence that compares to that of native speakers. The study of grammar helps us to communicate more effectively. Quite simply, if we know how English works, then we can make better use of it.

The Internet is an excellent place to begin experiencing English grammatical structures. Here are ten excellent sites where you can learn a lot about English Grammar for free.
