I think only tenses and mood we should know and then we should focus on speaking fluency if we learn much grammar it will make our speaking slow Because while speaking we just thinking that i am speaking correct or not......

As a ESL/EFL Teacher, Once you manage to successfully help your students 'activate' their passive grammar knowledge, your learners will be able to produce grammatically well-structured sentences without having to focus on the sentence formation process in their minds, which can be achieved through personalization of grammar points in mixture of other skills in a more tangible context familiar for the learners.
your main question: ESL students have less focus on grammar since their experience more of a context-based theme of learning in which grammar is rarely solely presented and they experience more of acquisition rather than learning.

It's important to have a strong foundation in grammar when learning a new language. After all, grammar is what helps us put words together in the correct order and form meaningful sentences. Without good grammar skills, it's difficult to communicate effectively in any language.

That said, English isn't just about grammar rules. It's also about fluency and being able to use the language naturally. So don't worry if you don't know all the rules off the top of your head. There are plenty of resources available to help you improve your grammar skills, such as work/life English ESL grammar workbooks. With a little practice, you'll be speaking like a native in no time!
