Do you or your students think learning English grammar “bites”?  Then, check out this website developed by a college English professor with attitude. She’s irreverent and funny and has devised a way to provide meaningful grammar lessons and interactive drills and quizzes that won’t bore your kids to death.

When you get to the site, you’ll see a menu that includes:
*Terms — Detailed definitions of grammar terminology including:

  • Adjectives
  • Adverbs
  • Conjunction
  • Dangling Modifier
  • Gerund
  • Nouns
  • Participle
  • Semicolon
  • Verbs
  • And more!

*Exercises — Interactive exercises (lessons) to help students learn correct grammar usage. Topics include comma splices, fragments, irregular verbs, misplaced modifiers, pronouns, subject-verb agreement, etc.

*Handouts — FREE handouts in PDF files that are companions to the exercises that students can do offline.

*Videos at You Tube – A short selection of fun, entertaining videos and animations that teach grammar.

Just click on any menu item title (in black) and a new page opens where you can access the free materials.

You might want to click on the “About” section as well, where you’ll meet Professor Robin and discover her views on grammar instruction (and other areas of interest as well). She makes it very clear that people who don’t like her methods — can go to another grammar website! If you decide to stick around, this website offers something quite unusual — interesting grammar lessons developed by a teacher who believes, “There are NO good textbooks.”
