Grammar. What is it? Why should you study English grammar? Grammar is the fundamental building blocks of a language. As a student of English as a second or foreign language, it is important for you to have a thorough understanding of the English grammar system.

As children, we all learned to speak our native language before we learned the grammar. Learning a second language is different than learning our first or native language, though. Learning the grammar system of English, or any second language, requires time and effort. It also takes the right study materials. And the study materials should be presented in clear terms so that even the beginning learner can improve and progress at a steady pace.

The lessons on John's ESL Community have been developed and tested in real ESL classrooms in Korea. I have tried to present each lesson in a way that allows you to begin at the first lesson and work your way through in much the same way as most grammar books are written. At the end of each grammar lesson there is a link to a quiz. I encourage you to use the quizzes to test your understanding of the material in each lesson.
