Grammar is a set of rules on how a language functions. It shows how words can be arranged and changed so that people can communicate effectively.

No two languages operate in the same manner. For example Latin depends a lot on different forms of words. The Chinese language stresses the pitch in a speaker’s voice. English emphasizes the arrangement of words.

Most languages include these features and others.

Youngsters and Grammar

Babies actually begin learning the basic grammar of their mother tongue in their first year, unconsciously. By the time they are four or five, they have absorbed enough of it to communicate their thoughts.

When children start school, they have used grammar continually for several years. But students still study grammar to improve understanding of their language—and of other languages.


The grammar lessons on this site contain explanations and examples of usage on specific areas. These range from parts of speech to the future perfect continuous.

And at the end (or bottom) of each page is a set of exercises that involve questions and statements for viewers to answers and share their thoughts on.
