Correct grammar ensures that you are communicating effectively and clearly.

Pay attention to grammar when you're reading or listening
When you're reading a book or a newspaper try to pay attention to the sentence structure and understand why a particular sentence is written in a particular way. Try to make sentence of the similar type. If you're not able to make then do go through the grammar concepts and understand the rules.

Listen and read aloud
Listening is important in improving your grammar because your ears are tuned to listen to sentences that are spoken in a particular manner.
