@englishmaniac Interesting article about teaching grammar. Some of my students demand that it's the class they need the most. It's seldom true. Here's something I wrote about the subject back in November: http://www.eslbasics.com/blog/teacher-posts/inside-out-grammar/~Andrea Giordano from ESLbasics.comp.s. Thanks for following me on Twitter!
Since I run a website called roadtogrammar.com, you can guess that I support the teaching of grammar, or at least the learning of grammar. English is a chronological language, based around the concepts of time, which, in turn, are expressed through verb tenses. English without grammar is not English.
