    The more you speak

    Hello!

    Is this sentence grammatically correct, please?

    "The more you speak, the better your English will be".

    Thanks a lot

    NOT A TEACHER.

    Yes, it is. You could leave out the comma, and it would also be correct.

    'The more you speak it, the better your English will be.'

    (Without it, you could be speaking French or any other language.)

    Thank you.

    Could we also use the future in the 1st part of the sentence: "the more you'll speak"?

    Cheers
