I want to ask about this question: How much should we learn about Grammar? Since it has many subjects to learn about and sometimes it makes beginners feel overwhelmed and desperate in which part they should start to learn grammar. Tenses, parts of speech, etc. Can anyone make a list contains which parts of Grammar that beginners should really understand?
For example, Is it important for a beginner to really understand parts of speech?
I love your perseverance adik! Now, I see why you become more and more successful with English. =)
How much a person should learn and/or command about Grammar depends on the educational level, as you will understand. For beginners, a compete and understandable online Grammar video course is offered by the website MyCareerTools. All subject matter is addressed in a clear and - sometimes - fun way and it is my experience that many students really like this way of learning. Take a closer look at their Grammar instruction here:http://mycareertools.com/ged-online-language-classes/
I hope this information will get you ahead. Good luck!
Yes it is very important to know about speech in beginning.
Hi everyone! Please check my website nobelliterature.com and tell me how I can improve my writing skills?
During my high school days, learning English means it was only encounter with dried grammar portions! Students were worrying so much to find out the answers as if they were in Maths class. By the way, we have lot of languages in our country and people use their own regional language for communication. In short, English stays our second or third language.
I continue the story. During high school final examination I got arranged a tuition teacher for learning grammar patterns that likely to ask for the examination.
It was felt easy and interesting to learn Parts of speech, singular, plural, verb forms, tag question, Helping verbs, Tense forms, Reported speech, Voice (active and passive), how to form questions etc. I think these are good enough for writing English.
Later, when it comes spoken English, I really felt that a lot of vocabulary, phrases, phrasal verbs, expressions are also needed to express our ideas and thoughts into English. English has its own style and structure to form the sentences. As you know, it can be achieved from reading different kind of materials of personal interest, watching movie, listening songs, chatting etc.
I may be still far away from better English but what I am communicating is the output of my basic English grammar and the output of my reading and listening materials. I wish if I had speaking practice since elementary, I would've been able to speak much better.
So what I mean to say is that basic English grammar is necessary but speaking practice (how to express all our thoughts, emotions, and feelings, requirements etc) is inevitable for someone who wish to be proficient in English.
