Online Grammar Lessons

It is difficult to learn proper grammar for most languages but it is not that important. If you speak “my house” or “house my” you will be understood.

To learn how to use grammar the World Word Exchange teaches you with simple grammar explanations along with grammar used in sentences for examples. Of all the grammar words: is, are, be, was, and were are some of the more difficult to use properly. It can take many years of practice. Again if you use the wrong words you will still be understood.

The importance of grammar when you are communicating with someone of a different language can be discarded. When you understand that dropping many words so you just use the important words it will be of great help.

If you are talking to a non-English speaking person or someone who has limited English it is very helpful to speak very simply. Instead of saying “I want to go to the store” a simple “go store” is easier to understand for a person of limited English.

Every language uses grammar in different ways. If you are learning a new language it is very helpful if you have a friend who speaks the language you are learning. Practice by hearing examples of how the foreign language is used.

It is more important when learning a new language to learn the basic words first, rather than how they are used. Grammar makes language sound better but it is not that important for communicating. Words are the true way of communication.

It is easy to learn a new language. The real challenge is remembering the words. The World word Exchange teaches you a new language through repetition. You play a simple word game. A question word is asked and you have eight choices to match to the word. By playing the game over and over you will remember the word. At the same time you are learning the words you can study the grammar.

Learning language is fun. It is a great way to improve your brain. Some say it builds new links in your mind and that it is a great way to ward off Alzheimer’s disease. It is also very exciting to speak and understand a new language.

While grammar may seem important at first when you experience communicating in a new language you will appreciate what I mean by speaking very simply. If you are interested in learning from a native speaker the World Word Exchange can help. The site teaches Spanish, Mandarin Chinese and Thai currently. Russian is coming soon. You will see the foreign words spelled phonetically in English. This will help to lock them into your memory. You can also listen to a native speaker speak the words over and over without fear of your teacher loosing patience. The site also has a virtual teacher that monitors your learning and pop quizzes you when you get words wrong. Lessons are very low in cost: 2 lessons $12, 4 lessons $20 or 8 lessons only $32 only $4 per lesson. You will learn fast if you try. Good luck in your adventure.

    I can see where it makes sense that grammar isn’t so important. After all, look at just how bad children’s grammar usage is (and some adults). They do learn simple words or short phrases to get the point across. And it would certainly make sense that we learn the same way with another language. Of course, in practice I cannot be 100% sure about what I am saying when it involves a language I have never spoken. But I do know this works with Spanish. Thanks.
