Grammar is at the core of all language instruction, yet it is one of the more difficult subjects both to learn and to teach.
To make the subject more accessible to students, language teachers have developed different methods of teaching grammar. While some teachers focus on grammar as a set of forms and rules, others are influenced by theoretical work on the difference between language acquisition and language learning.
No matter what your style of teaching is, the lesson plans listed here can be a big help in teaching grammar.
