Grammar is a waste of time.

We don't need to learn English grammar to speak English. Grammar is a waste of time.

Grammar is necessary

Postby member » Mon Sep 22, 2003 2:49 pm

Grammar is necessary to express him/herself correctly. In fact, to communicate in any language we need to form expressions by combining words according to its grammar rules. A word is in its turn just a combination of letters that has a sense according to the dictionary. Therefore, like we cannot obtain a word that has a sense by combining any set of letters, we cannot as well obtain a significant expression by combining words in any manner we want.

It is true that people can usually understand what we mean eventhough we don't respect grammar; but this is not a proof of our ability to express correctly, it is a proof of the intelligence of others, who are able to deduce what we mean from our erroneous expressions (like those of this message, which, I'm sure, won't prevent you of understanding what I would like to express!).

I agree. Grammar is very important in English. This is basic to have clear understanding in English.

But, I find it is difficult to learn and understanding Grammar . I alway make mistake in grammar . Then, it is always make a receiver will not understand , confuse or misunderstanding what I talk .

On the other hand , it is comfortable and easy to understand when I see a goods essay in which is correct grammer .

Could you advise how to learn grammer and beginning interesting? Thanks.

grammar is a waste of time

grammar is quite essential in my idea. if you have to learn the language that isn't your native language, don't avoid it.
it doesn't matter if you just want to speak, but if you have to write it is a big deal.
learn and try to use it, you will find it is a piece of cake, believe me. :wink:

This is great encouragement. Thank you for your advice. I found English more interest . No more dull . (especial in Grammar )

Although my English is not enough, I will keep learning and try to use . I do belive you. I will find it is a piece of cake and interest in English. I will find more treasure. Thanks. ..... :lol:

Is Grammar important

Postby costadina » Tue Oct 21, 2003 2:51 pm

[I believe that grammar is important. It is needed in order for a language to make sense, and for others to understand what we're talking about. But it isn't everything! There are students who know the grammar rules "by heart" but can't speak or write English. I beleive that you need both grammar and vocabulary in order to communicate. I also feel that grammar is inseperable from vocabulary. :ideab][/b]
