The following worksheets offer a general review of the correct usage of different parts of speech.

There are eight key parts of grammar in the English language: noun, pronoun, adjective, verb, adverb, preposition, conjunction, and interjection. These units show how any word functions in meaning and to make it grammatically correct. It is the first aspect that needs to be learned when you're grasping the concept of language. Noun: A noun is simply the name of a person, place, thing, etc. For instance, Harris, London, cupboard. Pronoun: A pronoun is a word used in place of a noun. For example, He, she, they, it. Verb: A verb is a word that expresses an action. For instance, eating, cooking, writing, etc. Adverb: An adverb is a verb that helps in describing a verb, adjective or another adverb. For instance, gently, carefully, etc. Adjective: An adjective is a word that describes a noun or a pronoun. For instance, old, smart, pretty, etc. Preposition: A preposition is a word that is placed before a noun or a pronoun to modify another word in the sentence. For instance, my sister brought me water from the kitchen. Conjunction: A word that joins words, phrases, or clauses. For instance, and, but, etc. Interjection: An interjection is a word that is used to express an emotion.

How to Improve Your Use Of Grammar

Learning how to improve your grammar can seem like a daunting task if you've never taken any steps to improve it before. Fortunately, many other people have done this, and you can profit from the wisdom they garnered from their mistakes and successes.

Fortunately, there are plenty of things you can do to learn more about the ins and outs of grammar and improve your writing skills in general so that fewer people notice when you slip up.

1. Review Your the Rules Regularly

The first step is to simply review grammar rules daily. This can be done by reading grammar books or articles on basic grammar rules. You should also familiarize yourself with commonly misused words, such as to, it's, and you.

In addition, you may want to take a formal grammar class (many colleges offer courses in writing and composition). Most importantly, you need practice! Read every rule and try to write a few sentences on your own.

2. Complete Exercises Every Day

The most effective way to learn anything is by doing. This is especially true for grammar, which may be slightly more abstract than other topics you've studied in school. Instead of memorizing a slew of rules and exceptions, take advantage of grammar exercises on an app like Duolingo (free) or use flashcards (you can buy them online or make your own).

You'll have more fun when learning through these games and will retain information better if you practice regularly. Just 10 minutes a day will do!

3. Listen to Podcasts in English

A great way to improve your grammar is by listening. If you don't listen at all, try listening for 20 minutes a day. If you're currently a listener and just want an improvement in your grammar, try for 10 minutes every day.

Podcasts are a great way to improve your language skills because they are more immersive than TV or music (when listened to in English), and also because most podcasts provide transcriptions of what was said so that you can read along as well. This makes it easy to correct yourself when you hear something wrong. And if there isn't a transcription available, then ask someone who speaks English fluently to check over what you heard. You might be surprised how much better your understanding of spoken English and grammar will become!

4. Read English Books

Reading books in English is a great way to improve your grammar and vocabulary. Read both fiction and non-fiction, challenging yourself to try and understand as much of every sentence as possible. Don't be afraid to look up words you don't know! You can also read news articles online or listen to podcasts while commuting. The more you read, the better your writing will become.

And reading isn't just for improving written communication—it also helps develop listening skills!

5. Take Advantage of Apps and Websites That Help You Learn English

You can use a smartphone or tablet to learn English grammar. As long as you're connected, plenty of apps offer free lessons and quizzes about everything from spelling and synonyms to homophones. You may be surprised at how much you learn, even on your time off.

You'll find lots of helpful tips and websites that teach English grammar in fun ways. For example, did you know there is a website called The Free Dictionary? It provides users with definitions and pronunciations for thousands of words—and best of all, it has audio clips!

Ending Note

You can improve your grammar even without a formal education in English. While there's no need to become an English major, learning more about your mother tongue will definitely help you better communicate your thoughts and strengthen your writing skills. With just a little effort, you'll be well on your way to becoming a grammar genius. If you really want to improve your writing, try following all five of these steps together—we promise they work!
