Grammar

The biggest mistake people make when learning a language is translating expressions or sentences directly from their own language into English. English grammar is completely different from your language.

Here, I focus on specific problems people have with English grammar.

Parts of speech:

Modal Verbs

Nouns

Articles: Indefinite vs. definite articles

Proper Nouns: Why is it ‘the Grammys’ and not ‘the Grammies’?

Adverbs
Understanding So and Too – intensifiers
*this also includes such, so much, so many, too much and too many!
