About Your Teacher

English Grammar Guide
If English vocabulary is the bricks of the language, then grammar is the mortar that hold those
bricks together. Without mortar the bricks can come tumbling down! A lack of a basic
knowledge of grammar can cause embarrassing misunderstandings.
That said, we believe that when you begin to learn English, speaking and building up your
vocabulary is more important than worrying about correct grammar. However, as you progress
you need to incorporate more grammar into your learning programme. At an advanced level you
might want to think more about the correct use of the English language.
There is a common impression that learning English grammar is painful, but it is a lot easier than
many other languages. Of course, English is more than just memorizing grammar rules, the
grammar must be incorporated into your everyday use of the language. Theory and practice
should always go hand in hand. Grammar matters.
These pages are under continual development. If there is anything you would like to see
included, or you spot anything that needs changing, please let us know.
