English Grammar Activities, Worksheets and Games

In this section of Teach-This.com, you will find all our ESL/EFL teaching activities, worksheets and games related to English grammar. Students of English need to see grammar rules in use to help them remember when and how to use them. All too often, students are able to memorize grammar rules, but they are unable to apply them in everyday life. Providing students with situations in which grammar forms are used is a key part of boosting their comprehension. Learning experiences can also be reinforced when students try things out for themselves. This gives students the confidence to use English in everyday situations outside the classroom. This is why we have created fun and engaging activities, worksheets and games that give students the opportunity to use grammar rules in natural contexts by incorporating samples of English from the real world into each activity. We also make sure each activity gives students the opportunity for freer practice to help them explore the language and understand how grammar is used.

Learning English grammar can be daunting for many students, especially when the language has so many rules and contradictions. We have made it our mission to provide rewarding and imaginative grammar activities, worksheets and games that help your students practice English grammar without memorizing too many rules. These inventive ESL/EFL activities offer simple and interesting ways to help your students learn grammar and have fun at the same time.
