Do you give up on the first day of school because it just seems too hard?
So you pick up an English, grammar book and study for two days. You become sick of seeing the same words over and over again, so you stop after a week. You are still confused about pronouns when you look back at your notes.
You have lost all confidence in your language skills and now have that sinking feeling that it will be years before you get back to speaking English articulately again.
You are an adult, fluent in all other languages including your native tongue, yet you cannot speak a lick of English.
But there is help. One of the most important steps you can take is to take a program that will improve your Reading and Writing skills. Everyone needs to understand basic grammar before they can use it at work or in social situations. This will increase your confidence and help you regain the ability to read and write fluently again.
If you can speak English fluently, you will be able to do more than ever before. And the biggest benefit is that it will help you with all other languages since English is the one unifying language.
It’s important to learn “the basics” before going further into the field of linguistics. Understanding basic grammar is necessary for all departments of linguistics, no matter what your focus is as an academic student. Since this article covers only reading and writing, it cannot teach you everything about grammar. It’s focused on the basics, however, so let’s start from there.
If you are well-versed in the basics of English grammar, perhaps it’s time for a refresher to get back on top of your game. By using this guide you will be able to revise grammar rules that you have forgotten and learn new ones as well as make sense of what you have already learned.
