For several years, we trying to learn English grammar. But it puts to sleep.
You are starting to feel comfortable with the language. You understand
most conversations and can follow the thread when watching movies; you
can carry out your day-to-day activities and can interact with native
speakers, but your English grammar needs work.
How much do you read in English? Do you do any pleasure reading in
English? If not, start there. Ask the librarian at your local library to select
books in English that match your current abilities. For example:
If your conversational skills are at an intermediate level, i.e. you can
speak on familiar topics, ask and answer simple questions, initiate and
respond to simple statements, and carry on face-to-face discussions,
I'd recommend that you start with children's picture books. The
pictures are engaging, and the stories entertaining. They are too short
to not get discouraged, and the language is varied enough to expose
you to a rich pallet so you can learn English grammar and vocabulary.
If your English skills are at the advanced level, for example, you are
able to participate freely in the most casual and some work
conversations, able to give simple explanations at work and also able
to talk about past and future events, then you might want to try young
If your skills are still at a beginner level, don't fret. For example, if you
are able to ask questions and make simple statements based on
memorizing sentences, understand conversation fragments and
simple commands, then look for beginning readers. Beginning readers
are designed for children just learning to read. These books have
simple vocabulary and short sentences.
After finding the right level of books, start reading regularly. Reading
at least twenty minutes per day. As you do so, make mental notes of
the grammar structure. As you find grammar constructions that
regularly puzzle you, note them on paper to discuss later with a native
speaker. It will help your pronunciation and fluency if you do at least
part of your reading aloud. Keep reading. As your skills improve, select
books that are more difficult.
You may spend several months focusing on daily reading in English. Once
daily reading becomes second nature, it will be time to turn your attention
to writing. You'll need a helper for this. Find a native speaker who can help
you practice and drill you on English grammar exercises. This person will
become your mentor. Choose someone who is patient and who can commit
some time to help you learn. Eventually, you'll want your mentor to create
drills for you to practice grammar patterns that you find difficult. But first,
let's start writing. Try capturing your weekend experiences (or other
meaningful events) on paper. Select experiences that are meaningful to you
and write them down in your native language. Then translate them.
It might seem like you are taking a step backwards to write first in your
native language. You might think: "Hey, I already know my language; I want
to get better at English. I want to be able to think in English without having
to translate." Patience; I want you to think in English too. The reason for this
extra step is because you write in more complex sentences in your native
tongue. If you write the stories directly in English, you are likely to use
simpler grammar and vocabulary. Translating in your native language forces
to use more complex English than you would if you wrote first in English.
ext, have your mentor correct any grammar errors. Also, ask him to
make sure that the English doesn't sound awkward. Use this time to
have him explain, if possible, why certain constructions are
incorrect or awkward. Have patience with him, though; sometimes he might
say, "It doesn't sound right." During this process, make sure that you watch
for errors that you repeat over and over.
sing these techniques will help you learn English grammar properly.
Reading will be fun and will expose you to correct English. Writing
about your experiences will let you hone your grammar and will be
a nice way to record your thoughts and feelings. Best part is, you'll get
better at English, and you'll never have to memorize another grammar rule.
All organizations begin with a dream; a vision; a hope for a better tomorrow.
The successful ones are those that never say die, never give up, until the
dream is realized, the vision turns to reality.
