Trying to learn the language without talking to other people is hard. Because it makes you part of society so take any chance to talk to people, even on the phone. as a result you will learn grammar as you listen to how other people use the words and speak even if you do not know the rules.
2.learn the parts of speech.
You need to know this when you are learning grammar, because the parts of speech will make it easy for you to use the word in a sentence. When you make an effort to identify words as parts of speech all the time, you will get a better idea of how the words come together in asentence, Listed below are the different parts of speech and their descriptions.
• Noun – is the name of a person, place, or thing. They can be proper nouns which are specific names such as Julie, Cambridge University, and iPhone, or common nouns or general terms such as girl, school, or smart phone.
• Pronoun – takes the place of a noun in a sentence. The types of pronouns are personal (he, she, it); possessive (mine, hers, his); reflexive (myself, herself, himself, itself); reciprocal (each other); relative (that, which, whom, whose); demonstrative (this, that); interrogative (who, what, when); and indefinite (anyone, anything, nothing, somebody).
• Adjective – describes a noun or pronoun, i.e. pretty girl, prestigious school, gray smart phone
• Article – a special adjective used to define a noun as definite (the) or indefinite (a/an)
• Verb – action word, i.e. jump, walk, speak, right, be
• Adverb – describes a verb, adjective, or another adverb, i.e. jump high, walk slowly, very pretty, highly prestigious school
• Conjunction – puts together two parts of a sentence, (and, or, but)
• Preposition – shows position or direction, used with a noun or pronoun, i.e., He went up the stairs. Other examples: Julie came from school.
• Interjection – words that show emotions, i.e., Wow!, Ouch!
3. Study verb forms.
verb forms are one of the biggest challenges in learning grammar . It can be time, person, number, aspect, voice, mood, or gender. You probably know about present, past, and future tense. These are conjugations of time.
There are two types of verbs when it comes to conjugation, regular and irregular. Regular verbs are easy because they follow a pattern. One example is the verb “bake.” To make the present form “bake” into the past, you simply add “d,” so the past tense is “baked.” For the future tense, you add the word “will” or “shall” before the verb, so “will bake” or “shall bake.” All verbs that follow this pattern are regular verbs.
You might have some problems when it comes to irregular verbs, though. There are no set rules, so you need to know how to conjugate each word. The past tense of “take,” for example, is not “taked” as you might think because it looks the same as “bake,” but the correct answer is in fact “took.” The past tense of “buy” is “bought,” while “run” is “ran.” and so on.
So once you know many verbs in simple present, past, and future verb forms, you can start practicing with present perfect, past perfect, and past continuous.
4.watch to learn
The best way to learn grammar is to watch movies and television shows in the language you are interested in, and listen carefully. Go back if you did not understand anything. Try to get copies with English subtitles to help you understand what people with heavy accents are saying.
5. Learn patterns.
You will notice patterns as you identify parts of speech in a sentence. Try to identify them without checking your grammar notes, and follow the patterns when you make your own sentences. You will see how your efforts have paid off so far.
