Welcome Learners !
I’m Meena Bilandani, M.A. (English)+Bachelor of Education, pursuing my passion of teaching for more than 15 years. I spend most of my time with my students and with my never-ending learning over here world’s most
spiritual land INDIA..
Let’s begin a new journey!
Grammar learning is not an easy task. It is a tough row to hoe. A lot of practice with constant learning and then assimilating within is really a constant journey in itself that needs immense patience to carry on. Speaking and writing any language within a proper framing in a restricted structure, is really an art.
“ Grammar in spoken English is not needed ”, is only a prevalent myth. Yes, for beginners just to encourage them we say not to stick with a heavy set of burdens and keep on speaking, especially when the speaker belongs to a regional medium/background or resides completely in a native environment. But they need not learn grammar and are completely befooling themselves. It is exactly like shooting an arrow without a bow. Yes, you can hit an arrow perfectly sometimes, but for a perfect pace, you need a bow. Yes, of course, if you are growing up in a completely English environment or studying in a school where the native language is strictly restricted to speak, they learn naturally the things and subconsciously, they use to speak a sentence in a correct framing naturally as they have been provided with an environment under which they understand grammatically the sentence is correct.
With my own experience of teaching almost all kinds of board students, I have found, that students from completely native backgrounds based on their region or country, most of the time pass through the verb mistakes which leave often very awkward situation if they have not studied tenses properly. While students from completely English backgrounds pass through part of speech errors which can be actually, not always but often negligible.
So, speaking English in an incorrect framing of tense leaves a more awkward situation than mistakes in other parts of speeches.
Yes, students from English medium/backgrounds often argue that they have learned English without learning Tenses, they are actually true but they are unaware of the fact that they have learnt tenses subconsciously in a practical environment, still, they are not much confident with their grammar which may lead them in problem in future competitive examinations. ( If they are preparing for that )
And students from native background sometimes try to give examples of such students without understanding the fact that such students have got a practical environment.
So as far as I could understand from my own lifelong experience, different backgrounds students must learn English as per their needs and surrounding. If they belong to a non -English environment, they can learn English at the first step with the translation method with that they must continue their reading., then gradually they can acquire constant understanding by continuous writing and having a practical approach. While students from English speaking backgrounds must also understand if they are speaking any particular sentence correctly, and how the sentence is correct which will help them to understand graamr correctly .So dear good English speakers, please don’t leave excuses, for learning English there is no need of learning Tense. Don’t forget in writing your mistakes can never be ignored.
Yes, at the beginning level, you must not hesitate, you must try to speak but that doesn’t mean you need not learn and understand grammar. If you are leaning grammar with learning Spoken English, it’s all like honey on your sugar cube. You must go parallel if you wish to enhance your writing skill also. But all four skills , whether it’s reading or writing,speaking or listening , everything is needed for comprehending any language.
So for such kinds of learners, ultimately, I am presenting here my Grammar lessons with videos and notes accompanied with exercises. I am presenting here my life long learning of Grammar which could be very helpful for my students in learning the English Language not only in enhancing speaking skills but writing skills as well.
Hope you’ll like all the lessons prepared by me by my hard efforts, and try to leave your precious suggestions.
Happy Learning !
