 Grammar is the system of a language. People sometimes describe grammar as the "rules" of a language; but in fact no language has rules. If we use the word "rules", we suggest that somebody created the rules first and then spoke the language, like a new game. But languages did not start like that. Languages started by people making sounds which evolved into words, phrases and sentences. No commonly-spoken language is fixed. All languages change over time. What we call "grammar" is simply a reflection of a language at a particular time. So why learning grammar is important?? Because Grammar is at the centre of both our spoken and written communications, and allows us to be clearly understood by others. Using grammar poorly can result in messages being unclear, which affects our ability to communicate, and can hinder relationship building – an important skill for youngsters to develop. Using grammar correctly, on the other hand, makes listening and reading easier for others, making communication more enjoyable, and positively impacting relationships. Grammar also enables children to expand their vocabulary as they learn more interesting ways to communicate messages and present information. How does Grammar affect a child’s learning? It’s thought that by teaching children different grammatical components, their writing and language skills develop at a faster rate. Acquiring good grammar skills is thought to positively affect other learning areas, such as: Attention and concentration Language comprehension Expressive skills Reading and writing Story-terling Thinking skills It’s believed that learning grammar helps children become better prepared for commencing secondary education, where they’ll be marked on their SPaG skills in essays and assignments across all subjects; not to mention English tests and checks. By encouraging grammar in use throughout education, young people also become better equipped for the world of work. Many employers value good grammar skills in an employee, and the first place they look is the job application.  How to Create a Grammar Lesson Plan for a Beginning Class?? Whether yours is their very first class or they have a little experience with English under their belts, your beginning level ESL students have a lot to learn. Teaching a beginning level class can be very exciting, watching students learn, seeing the light bulbs come on, but it can also be very challenging. If you are teaching students with no English background, you may find yourself starting with the ABC’s. If your students have had some past experience with language learning, you may not need to cover the most basic building blocks, but you’ll still be tackling the foundations of the language. The good news is that beginning students learn quickly. You have plenty of topics to choose from, and you may have more freedom in the grammar topics you cover than teachers of more advanced classes do. So where do you start when it’s time to get ready for that beginner class? How to Create a Grammar Lesson Plan for a Beginning ESL Class 1-Set Goals The first step of any good lesson plan is determining the outcomes you are looking for.What grammatical concept are you going to teach? 2-Introduce the Topic When you get to class, you should start your lesson by introducing the topic to your students. You should show them the structure you are teaching, and be sure to give them one or two simple examples. 3-Give Examples After you introduce the topic to your students, be sure to give plenty of correct examples of the grammatical structure. Simple examples are good, but don’t be afraid to show your students something a little more complex.
