Grammar

How to improve your English grammar skills.

Grammar is your tool kit.

With it, you can construct sentences and communicate your exact meaning. You can make the language work for you and make your speaking and writing more interesting and effective.

How to improve your grammar

Remember, it is not impossible. Start with the basics as these are the foundations to build your language progress on. Add to these step by step, a little at a time.

Listen to, and read English, to become more aware of grammar. Use the books and links on this website, and any other resources your tutor gives you.

Ask questions when you need help.

Do not be impatient or unrealistic. You cannot learn everything immediately. If you want to improve your grammar, focus on the mistakes you often make. Are they similar? Focus on solving this problem first.

Look for help online or, if you are on an English language course, ask your tutor. You can also email languagedevelopment@yorksj.ac.uk.
