Learn English Grammar

What Is Grammar?

Do you enjoy jigsaw puzzles? All you have to do is put pieces together to make a whole. But how? Is that easy? Or are there any strategies for putting together a jigsaw puzzle quickly and easily?

There are edge pieces, corner pieces and center pieces in a jigsaw puzzle. If you want to put together the puzzle quickly and easily, first you need to sort pieces into the groups, you should also pay attention to the piece shapes and connect the edge pieces together to build the frame and then the center pieces.

You pick up, move and connect the pieces of a puzzle to make a whole. Just like the way we arrange different types of words (nouns, adjectives, etc.) to make proper sentences.

As in the doing of a jigsaw puzzle, we follow some rules to build the sentences easily and quickly. These rules are called grammar. But is it necessary to learn English grammar?

Why Learn English Grammar?

“I don’t think that it is necessary to study grammar to learn English. It is a waste of time.”

This is a phrase I hear quite often from the learners of English.

Really, is it necessary to learn English grammar?

YES. It is.

English is not your mother tongue, you are not like an English baby hearing his mom speaking English all day long. You study English as a second language, and the grammar rules would make learning process faster and easier for you.

Being able to make proper sentences in English would make you speak more fluently and that would boost your confidence in speaking.
