Roughly one-fifth of the world’s population speaks English, but the majority of those who use the English language aren’t native speakers! As the most commonly studied language in the world, English is also notorious for being one of the most difficult languages to learn.

Despite this, a solid grasp of English grammar is necessary in order to successfully master English and communicate effectively.

But what is grammar, exactly?

Even to native English speakers, the idea of “grammar” may seem like little more than a complex topic for linguistics experts, but grammar is incredibly important. Grammar lays the groundwork for consistent and effective communication by normalizing sentence structure, punctuation, tense, verb conjugations, and form. Like all other languages, English has its own set of grammar rules.

For non-native speakers, however, grasping these nuanced grammar rules can be difficult. Whether you want to more solidly grasp basic English grammar or if you’re hoping to tackle the more advanced details of grammar to perfect your English, there are plenty of ways to improve. 

Read books

Repetition is key when learning a language—the more sentences you read, the more familiar you will become with their structure. Read conscientiously by taking note of punctuation and form, but don’t get too bogged down in the details and forget to enjoy your favorite books.

Keep a journal

Writing is just as important as reading because it provides English students with an opportunity to create, construct, and correct their own sentences. While you can write anything you’d like, we recommend keeping a simple journal of your daily activities. This way, you can think less about content and focus more on constructing proper grammar.

Work with an Online English Tutor

By working with an English Tutor online, you’ll have the ability to personalize your lessons with a native speaker who can teach you how to learn English grammar. The flexibility of online learning makes it easy to study at your own pace and in the convenience of your own home (or anywhere else you can find an internet connection).

Buy a grammar manual

Purchasing a grammar manual and keeping it on hand will provide you with a reliable and consistent reference for moments when you’re stumped. Don’t be afraid to highlight your manual, fill it with notes and bookmarks, or use any other method to make the manual more comfortable and familiar for you to use.
