ESL Grammar www.EFLSensei.com ESL Grammar Activities are a great way for your students to use English while reinforcing correct grammar use. Jump to ESL Grammar Activities Students get bored when they are simply sitting and taking notes. Worksheets offer a bit more excitement, but fill-in-the-blank and cloze exercises don't allow for "real" communication. These activities help students feel more comfortable with using English in a "real" setting and actually communicate with each other using the target language. ESL Grammar Lessons at www.esl-lab.com For many years, my Web site has been focused on helping students improve their listening, vocabulary, speaking, writing, and thinking skills through a variety of exercises and activities. Now, I am developing grammar activities that can help reinforce and recycle all of the other language skills in a unified manner around common topics. In other words, the vocabulary and language found in each listening conversation is used and recycled in the grammar exercises leading to better understanding, use, and retention. Furthermore, quality language activities shouldn't just test something; they should teach and help students make connections between what they are learning in the classroom and in real life. Therefore, I try to make the explanations simple and easy to understand. They are not designed to take the place of a textbook or language class, but they can serve as follow-up activities or supplementary material to expand upon what has been learned.
